SUN ANCON CHI
relaxation and healing
has never been so simple.
time of day to use:
Best time to use
the Chi Machine is before breakfast
as it gets the brain mentally focused, the body
energized, and creates a great jump start to the
Lunchtime is fine for a
and and after dinner to assist restful sleep
and to promote natural healing and
rejuvenation. If the Chi Machine energizes you
too much before bedtime, simply use it an hour
or two before going to bed as opposed to
directly before climbing into bed.
Use before eating or wait
at least one hour after eating - lunch
or dinner - before using the Chi Machine.
Please use a room where you won't be
disturbed - no phone, NO watching TV at
the same time, no kids - soft, relaxing music is
a good idea.
Place the Chi
Machine on a solid surface. A hard floor with a
carpet is best. For people confined to bed, a
hard board (such as a wooden cutting board),
placed underneath the machine for stability, is
ok. A firm mattress is also acceptable, just be
sure the machine is not bouncing around.
Place machine on
floor - handle side away from you - and
plug in. Feet should hang past the ankle rests
just enough so they will move gently back and
forth once machine is turned on. If feet
knock together, turn feet slightly
outwards like a ballet dancer.
NOTE: Remember to place the soft ankle
rest cover over the grey plastic ankle rest, so
as to cushion your ankles.
Let your arms relax loosely at
your sides, palms down. Avoid using a pillow under
your head, as this hinders the machine's
motion from reaching your head. People with severe
knee problems may need to place a rolled towel or
small cushion under their knees.
Each dot on the timer
is equal to 2 minutes.
1) Begin with 4-6 minutes, once
or twice a day. Increase GRADUALLY to 15 to 20
minutes, once or twice a day.
2) 1-2 minutes once a
day, is enough for someone in poor health,
bedridden, frail or in a lot of pain. This can
slowly be increased as improvement is achieved.
DO NOT begin at 15-20
minutes or you may feel nauseous, or
weak legged, or have minor aches and pains.
exceed 20 minutes per session, as this will
detox the body too quickly for some people - refer back to #3.
Whilst you will feel a difference
the very first time of use, do not expect
'miracles' overnight, or after only 2 or 3
sessions. If any discomfort is experienced at
anytime, simply reduce time limit for as long as
you need to, before adding minutes again, very
Swim on land!
Once timer is set, the
ankle rest will begin to move back and forth moving your feet from
side to side. This movement will carry up
through your legs and torso, and then to the
upper body and head, causing your body to move
just like a goldfish swimming in water. The most
movement is in the lower body and torso, where
as the upper spine, neck and head will be felt
as a gentle, soothing motion.
This particular movement - side
to side - promotes stimulation and balance of
Nervous System. As
a result the body and mind becomes relaxed,
de-stressed and loosened up.
As your body sways, your mission
is to close your eyes, RELAX and 'surrender' as
much as possible. Slow, deep breaths are highly
recommended to enhance the aerobic respiration
exercise thereby allowing maximum benefit and
When the Sun
Ancon Chi Machine stops ...
It is Important to lie still for at
least three minutes when the machine
stops. Do NOT jump up. This
time is when the wave
of healing CHI
energy is felt circulating
throughout the body. 40% of the therapeutic
effect occurs while the machine is moving, and
60% when it stops.
When the timer stops, continue
lying down with your eyes closed, continue to
relax, and enjoy the 'tingling rush' of
your chi. This 'rest period' enables you to absorb
and process the chi energy, and allow the body to
complete the beneficial effects the motion
created. Sitting up quickly
and moving will constrict your muscles,
detracting from the full absorption benefits.
the rest period, remove your feet from the
ankle cradle and lift up your knees, bending
them into a 45 degree angle with your feet
flat on the floor. Take a deep breath and
lower your knees to one side as low as is
comfortable, and swing your arms to the
opposite side, whilst you breath out. Slowly
return your knees to the upright position
whilst inhaling. Repeat this movement to the
opposite side, and then back again, breathing
as before. Repeat this exercise a few times
and then gently sit up.
Complete the session with a glass
of water to assist the body in flushing
out metabolic waste (by way of urine and feces).
If you feel dizzy at all, it is
commonly due to accumulated toxins being
released in your body. The dizziness
will dissipate quickly. If you develop rashes or
feel aches or pains, simply adjust your
time limit to a lesser amount during your next

to be unwell as it adjusts towards becoming
healthy and well.

Some individuals with

cases it is best used under supervision

Time should be set at just 1-2
minutes to begin, then very slowly increased,
never exceeding 10 minutes maximum. Time is to
be reduced if any discomfort is experienced.
Life Rule: When in doubt,

machine with young
children and toddlers, 4-6 minutes is normally
enough time. Very calming and soothing, great
for lack of mental focus or temper tantrums.
