The public are demanding these values more often. The public look to
each other for feedback
besides the paid reviews on Amazon or
paid shout-outs from celebrities.

on Amazon.com continue to claim they are the Original Chi Machine. THEY
December 2015 - False
claims, illegal use of trademarked name,
deceitful use of TV show.
1) Imitation chi exercise
machines or passive exercisers as they now call
themselves, continue to surge thru the market,
as fast as one machine is discontinued, another
pops up, but numbers have leveled out, and such
is the nature of any business. The problem is
that imitations continue to persist in illegally
attaching the trademarked name 'Chi Machine' to
2) Three imitation companies have
proclaimed themselves to be the most superior
out of all the imitation machines (including the
original). Here is one imitations quote "the
most advanced model available globally". Another
imitation company quotes "superior to the
original Chi Machine in numerous ways" but
declines to illuminate. This same company uses
the Dr's TV show
video clip, failing to mention it is the
original Sun Ancon Chi Machine and not their
One imitation company states " Early chi
exercise machines were designed for the
typically smaller and lighter body types of
Oriental people". First there is no such thing
as earlier chi exercise machines, there was only
one, and it has a trademarked name, The Chi
Machine from HTE. Secondly, the Chi Machine was
NOT designed specifically for 'Oriental' people.
This claim insinuates that Orientals (insulting
label), are all the same race (insulting), with
no differences in height or weight, whilst also
insinuating that "non 'Orientals" have different
anatomies, being bigger and heavier. Whilst the
USA in general appears to have an obesity
challenge, many people will definitely take
offense. The Original Chi Machine was
created for ALL body types and all ages.
The Chi Machine is registered as a medical
device in three countries because the
specifications of the patents, the oscillations
per minute, the precise and deliberate single
speed and the swing travel, all directly relate
to the highest medical benefit the Chi Machine
will give to the human body with no chance or
injury or any negative side effects.
3) There are numerous false claims that
can be read on Amazon.com, in regards to the
original Chi Machine. Here is one such false
claim: "Their original patent was for a variable
speed unit, but once we came out with the Chi
Vitalizer, they decided to differentiate by
claiming there's only one speed that works". The
original Chi Machine has NEVER had more than one
speed, and the imitation Chi Vitalizer was
created many years later, having multiple brand
labels, names and prices. Why do companies lie?!
Imitation brands 2015 include:
Chi Exerciser, Chi Vitalizer, Chi
Energizer, Chi Swing, Swing Master, Footshaker,
Zen Chi, Evergain, Passive Exerciser, Oxy-Flow,
Chi Flow, Zen Chi, Surge of Chi, Aussie Wobbler
... Amazon.com and eBay have an abundance of
imitations to choose from with a plethora of
false information and plagiarized facts.
The Sun Ancon Chi Machine made a fourth
TV SHOW global
appearance on a show we cannot actually name for
legal reasons (watch the TV show clip to find out),
but if any imitation machine attempts to use the
video footage or make any reference in any form
after the show airs, legal action will be taken by
the TV show producers.
All the chimachines on Amazon.com are
imitations. The real Sun Ancon is listed, but every
time we check it is 'sold out' - this is a scam to
get the buyer to purchase an imitation, because the
Sun Ancon Chi Machine is not sold on Amazon.com by
Many people who saw the Sun Ancon Chi Machine on The Doctors went to Amazon and
purchased an imitation machine without knowing they
had not bought the real deal, the Sun Ancon Chi
Machine. Imitation companies then proceeded to scam
the public using 'The Doctors' TV show video
footage, falsely claiming it as their own imitation
The owner of this website - Chi Machine
International - was the individual responsible
for "The Doctors" TV showcase of the Original Chi Machine
- known as the Sun
Ancon - and also the TV showcase in
2013 on the Dr. Oz show.
Please feel free to notify us if you discover a
company claiming their imitation "chi machine" was
showcased on either of these shows, because the producers will
take legal action as they feel strongly about deception and false claims.
October 2005 - Decline in imitations:
Several imitation 'chi machine' websites no longer
exist, but there are still quite a few that
persist. HTE the exclusive distributor of the
Original Sun Ancon, are aggressively pursuing
these deliberately misleading merchants for
copyright, fraud and patent infringement.
March 2004 - Gimmicks Added:
Many of the imitation chi machines have now
resorted to having gimmicks attached to the
machines including infrared features, heating pads
and magnets, besides adding multiple speeds. Quite
honestly, a pogo stick, a hula hoop or a
trampoline are safer and more beneficial. If
you cut costs with your health, you pay a
non-refundable higher price in the long run. To
compare the REAL Chi Machine, the Sun Ancon, to
any existing imitation machine, is the same as
trying to compare a go-cart to a Ferrari.
Fit For Fun, the leading German health and
consumer magazine in Europe, tested the original
Sun Ancon against the imitations. Sun Ancon won
Some websites have re-worded and changed deceitful
information since first being presented here. To
date, all of them still remain medically unproved

Everyone is entitled to sell any product they
choose, but selling products under false pretenses
in order to make a profit - in this case at
the expense of your health - is
dishonorable, greedy and plain wrong when it comes
to something as important as your health. If an
imitation machine harms someone, breaks down or does
not do what the original does, this is a bad
reflection on the original WHICH WORKS and was
created to seriously help people. The consumer is
advised to always research products in depth and
draw conclusions for themselves.
