How to use the Chi Machine.

joking exercise

Exercise, relaxation and healing
has never been so simple.

Best 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 day ahead.

Lunchtime is fine for a midday pick-up, 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.

Machine location:
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.

Get ready, setting-up:
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.

Length of time per session:
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.

3) DO NOT begin at 15-20 minutes or you may feel nauseous, or weak legged, or have minor aches and pains.

20 minutes per session is ideal, but those who are unwell should stay around 5-10 minutes as the body may detox too quickly in some cases.

If any discomfort is experienced at anytime, simply reduce time limit for as long as you need to, before adding minutes again ... slowly.

Whilst you will feel a difference the very first time, do not expect 'miracles' overnight, or after only 2 or 3 sessions. Benefits are cumalitive with daily use.

Ready, Set, Go ... Swim on land!

Once the 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 the Autonomic 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 relaxation. Idea for meditation.

When the 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 'est 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.

Optional post stretch: 

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 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).

How to use the Sun Ancon Chi Machine.

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

No. You should lie on a carpet, or rug, or you may use a yoga mat.

It is not advised unless already a super healthy person who already normally works out, and only then is the middle trimester a choice, NOT the first or last trimester.

Even though the timer goes to 30 minutes, it is advised to stay within 20 minutes. There is no need to do excessive lengths of time, less is more in this case.
