and Medical Advice:
am also wondering how much discomfort can be
expected for someone with severe pain?
A: How much discomfort can be expected for
someone with severe pain who uses the machine is
extremely difficult to comment on as bodies vary
greatly. Noticeable reduction in pain levels is
often the case using the machine twice daily as a
Q: I have just had surgery on one of my
knees and I am disappointed that I will not be
able to use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine for 3
months following the surgery. I would be
grateful for advice as to whether it is in order
to use the Chi Machine and if so, for how long
and how many times a day.
A: My belief is that after one month you
should be OK to use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine
providing you place 1 or 2 pillows under your
knees when using the machine.
Q1: A client who is being treated with
chemotherapy is doing well (a count down from 500
to 50) and the doctors are pleased. Do you think
the Sun Ancon Chi Machine would be okay to use
whilst having chemotherapy?
does not like oxygen. So increase your usage to x3
per day. The Sun Ancon Chi Machine is not a machine
that 'fixes problems' but it is definitely a support
for the body as a relief from the stress and the
side effects of the condition and chemotherapy.
Length of sessions.
Q2: My local Complementary Cancer Care
center have asked about the time sessions with
regard to their clients using the Chi Machine.
Patients can use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine
provided they use it for very low levels of time.
Start at 1 or 2 minutes and increase by 1 minute
every week or so. Stop at any level if pain
arrives and reduce to the previous level.
Q: Can the Chi
Machine be used for a person who has had spine
A: Natural bony fusion is the strongest
fusion possible. Even partial fusion is extremely
strong and there is no possible way the Sun Ancon
Chi Machine could cause a bony separation or
'undo' the fusion process. Start at 1 minute at
least twice per day and increase the time by 1
minute per week. The Sun Ancon Chi Machine is pure
aerobic activity and is gentler on the body than
Q: I have a
client who has recently undergone cosmetic surgery
for their upper and lower eyelids and would like
to know how soon they can resume using their Sun
Ancon Chi Machine.
A: After healing, probably about 4 to 6
weeks the Sun Ancon Chi Machine could be used.
Wait 8 weeks after breast implants.
Healthy Digestive Function.
Q: Can the Sun
Ancon help support digestive function?
A: Start at 1 minute and increase time very
slowly, say 2 minutes per session every week or so
to a maximum of 10 minutes per session.
Q: How can the
Sun Ancon Chi Machine help someone with weak
A: Start using the Chi machine at a 2 minute
frame initially. They can increase their time
frame in 2 minute units weekly. They may use the
machine 4 to 6 times per day.
Q: Can a person
with seizures use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine? Why
is it stated as a contraindications?
A: The machine can be used for epileptic
patients. The reason that it has been stated that
epilepsy is a contraindication is that some person
may see fit to sue the company if they personally,
or a family member who was in the process of using
the machine had a fit at that time.
personal belief is that the machine is very
soothing and calming of the nervous system and the
outcomes for an epileptic patient would indeed be
positive. It is important that the patient is
supervised the entire time when using the machine
as a precautionary measure.
- Healing Crisis
Q: Can someone
with a pacemaker use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine,
and if so, what are the boundaries of use?
A: Use the machine at low time levels,
starting at 2 minute daily for one week, then add
2 minutes each week to a maximum of 10 minutes or
be governed by comfort levels at lower time
retention around the ankles and knee. What time do
you recommend for The Chi Machine.
A: The Sun Ancon Chi Machine can assist
people in all these areas. Start at very low time
intervals of 2 minutes to start, then add 2
minutes per week to a maximum of between 10 and 15
minutes per session, depending on the individual's
I have used the Chi Machine with
pregnant health professionals, and is great for
well-being, and supporting getting back to shape after
Pregnancy and Post Pregnancy.
Q: Can the Sun Ancon Chi Machine
be used during pregnancy?

not be used by those who are not in good health
or are at risk.

the first trimester and during the final month
University's Clinical Trials
indicates a significant drop in fluids in the
lymphatic system using The Chi Machine. Pregnant
women tend to retain fluid.
Please consult your
physician for advice if you have any concerns
about using it.
Q: I have a
client who has back problems. How will the Sun
Ancon Chi Machine help the side effects?
A: The Sun Ancon Chi Machine will not
correct back problems (such as scoliosis), but
will benefit by providing support with
stretch/relax, stretch/relax action on the spinal
muscles to help stabilize and temporarily relieve
on the severity and pain, begin at 2 minutes per
session and increase slowly in 2 minute
increments. If any discomfort, decrease the time.
Q: I have just
had surgery. Can I use my Sun Ancon Chi Machine?
A: No. You can not use it unless the wound
is closed and healed, 6-8 weeks. The yard-stick is
that once stitches have been removed and the wound
is healing well then the machine can be used. It's
ALWAYS paramount that these people always start at
low time levels and build their time up slowly
over several weeks.
Q: What about minor surgery, outpatient
after one day?
A: Minor surgery recovery - 10 days to 2
weeks should be okay for a relatively fit and well

Q: I have used
the Sun Anion Chi Machine for some months, but I
can only use it for 2-3 min.per day. I have so
much pain in my body because I am allergic to my
teeth fillings with silver in them. I am taking
them out one by one and have taken out 9, but I
still get very sick after I have been at the
dentist. Is it wise of me to use the Sun Anion Chi
Machine when I get sick. My body aches as well as
the muscles and my stomach, so I understand that
my body is trying to get rid of the poison. Can I
use the machine?
Yes, you can use the machine but only for one or
two minutes per session. Be sure to drink plenty
of water each day. Using the machine 2 to 3 times
per day may be very helpful.
