The inherent figure
of eight healing and harmony occurs when the
speed is set at approx 140 oscillations/minute. Slower
or faster and the perfect eight can become a distorted
lopsided eight which not only
may surge blood pressure in prone
individuals, but may also cause back
pain, or possibly exacerbate
injuries of the back or spine. No serious or lasting
harm is done, the body will revert back to it's normal
state within a week or two, as soon as use of the
machine is discontinued.
The original Sun Ancon Chi
Machine sets the machine at around 140-145 cycles
per minute, matching the highest normal blood
pressure - twice the heart rate. Healthy people can
tolerate even higher frequencies, but not so for
those who are weak. Conversely, a lower frequency
will not product any beneficial effect.
The distributors of imitation
Chi Machines have a theory that the ill and elderly
can go slowly on the machine and sports people can
go fast. NOT TRUE. Imitation Chi Machines
also claim that weight and height play a role in the
oscillation speed of the machine. THEY DO NOT.
The original Sun Ancon Chi Machine is for ALL body
types, height, weight and age groups.
FOR MULTIPLE SPEED IMITATION CHI MACHINES:
1) Elderly people are
more prone to high blood pressure, putting them
through the irregular motion eight may
potentially send it surging.
2) Sports people need to keep
their blood pressure low, and putting them on at
high speed may increase their blood pressure.
Consider this feedback from
two different sources:
a) "A doctor in the UK had
an imitation machine until he took the BP of all
the patients he put on it. He soon discovered that
in every instance it caused their blood pressure
to be raised. Needless to say, he got rid of the
imitation machine and purchased a Sun Ancon." -
Tricia Dickens, UK, 2002.
b) "Imitation chi machines
on the market do not have patents and do not have
the correct frequencies and will probably cause
problems. I worked on two people who used
imitation machines and they got very sick ... one
went into seizures and another was so sick she
couldn't stand up for four days. They were not
using the Sun Ancon Chi Machine." - Dr. L.
Bristol, Naturopath, March 1999.
Mechanism Creates Uniform Motion:
One of the patents focuses on
the internal mechanism. The main drive mechanism
of the machine is located at the center of the
device. The swinging motion is thus exactly
uniform and equal. With imitation machines, the
drive unit is at the side of the device and the
left and right swing distance is not equal. The
user can sense the imbalance in the strength of
the swinging and this leads one side of the body
to be irritated. This is similar to what textile
or computer operators experience when they repeat
the same motion for many hours and then come up
with pain in the associated parts of the body.
and Weight Designed for Optimal Effect:
chi machine users have reported that a faster
or slower speed caused them minor to extreme
discomfort, including heavy-heartedness, back and
spinal pain (most common complaint), knees
and hip pains, nausea and headaches.
Another patent pertains to the
shape of the exerciser. The height and width of
the machine are precisely designed for optimal
effect. The frequency of the swinging motion was
arrived at after 38 years of research by Dr.
Inoue. In other words, a slower oscillation or a
surge in speed, will not produce the exact same
Ask yourself this question,
if multiple speeds benefited the body, then why was
the original Chi Machine not created as such by Dr.
Inoue? Why, after 28 yrs on
the market, has the original Chi Machine not added
If you have had an
unpleasant experience with an imitation 'chi
machine' please remember, you usually get exactly
what you pay for.
