are two words merchants need to embrace.
The public are demanding these values more often. The public now look
to each other for feedback
instead of paid reviews on Amazon or paid
shout-outs from celebrities.

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 imitation.
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
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
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
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
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 HTE.
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 product!

responsible for "The Doctors" TV showcase of the
Original SUN ANCON
Chi Machine and also the TV showcase in 2013 on

their imitation "chi machine" was showcased on
either of these shows as the producers will take
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
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 hands
Some websites have re-worded and changed deceitful
information since first being presented here. To
date, all of them still remain medically unproved
with no clinical
research unlike the Sun Ancon Chi
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
instantly recognize the
Original Chi Machine, the Sun Ancon, formerly known as

They say imitation is a form of flattery. Well,
would you like to see a remake of the classic
"Wizard of Oz" or "Gone With The Wind"? Sometimes
there is just no duplicating the original.
