SUN ANCON CHI
relaxation and healing
has never been so simple.
of day to use:
Best time to use the Chi
Machine is before breakfast as
it gets the brain mentally focused, the body
balanced and energized, and creates a great jump
start to the day.
Lunchtime is fine 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.
Always wait at least one hour after eating
- lunch or dinner - before using the Chi
use a room where you won't be disturbed - no
phone, NO watching TV at the same time, no
kids - soft music is good.
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
very 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.
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.
Length of time:
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) One or two minutes once a day, is
quite 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.
4) NEVER exceed 20 minutes per session,
as this will detox the body too quickly for some
people, and cause imbalance in others.
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 slowly.
Swim on land!
Once timer is set, the ankle
rest will begin to move back and forth carrying
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.
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 ...
Important - when the machine
stops, lay still for at least three minutes.
Do NOT jump up. This time is when
the movement 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.
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.
Following 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
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 session.
Some people may experience this medically
documented experience known as a healing
crisis or 'Herxheimer Reaction',
which is simply your body appearing to be unwell
as it suddenly adjusts towards becoming healthy
