"I'm 62 years young, a Christian,
married 40 years to Bob, who taught high school
chemistry for 20 yrs. I'm an R.N. by profession
and i worked in surgery, long term care, taught
Nurse's Aide classes, taught reading in a prison
for youthful offenders for 3 months, worked in general
hospital nursing and a Podiatrist's office.
A drunk driver ended
my nursing career, nearly 6yrs ago. I attribute the
nearly full return to function of my closed head
injury, to YLEO's , the Chi Machine, and the
'therapy' that my learning to do Raindrop/Vitaflex
has given me in making new patterns in my brain. Two tears ago, I went
for an Emotional Release with Young Living Oils
which was also most beneficial."
September 11th, 2001, my eldest
daughter's 34th Birthday.
"Our small grandchildren
clustered around us to ask "Why are you crying,
grandma?" as we watched on T.V. the Twin Towers
burning, then collapsing.
My husband and I were in the midst
of packing to go on a trip to Beckley, West
Virginia in our motor home. There, I would see my
roommate from nurse's training 39 years prior.
Both our Michigan, and National Escapees
(retirement age folks) RV Club Rally's were
scheduled for the next 10 days. We were on staff,
but had no desire to go anywhere as we joined the
nation in shock and grief.
I was a basket case, STRESS
causing severe bladder pain due to the
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) I'd had for almost
twenty years. The pain was so bad it felt like the
back pains I'd felt during delivery of my
children. Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) along with
the Interstitial Cystitis had been a vicious cycle
for me causing severe SLEEP DEPRIVATION since
While working full time as an R.N.
in a long term care facility, there were a few
years when I'd get up between six and twelve times
at night to empty my bladder of as little as a
tablespoon. Sometimes I'd have to sit and wait for ten minutes for
my bladder to actually feel
empty so I could try
to sleep. A time in my life when I lived with desperation daily.
Back to September 11th 2001
Every cell in my body screamed
"STAY HOME", as we
left for our R.V. Rallys first in Michigan, then
in W.Virginia. I hated leaving our daughter and
her children, we
were all uncertain about what further attacks
there might be on our nation. Remember, all planes
had been grounded so mail service was interrupted.
The delivery of food supplement packets I'd
received by mail every month for six years, was
uncertain. I had relied on this Lifepak to alleviate my
bladder pain. What if I couldn't get it, or the
ingredients were no longer available?
Fast Forward to
Beckley, W. Va. October 2001
In the Indoor Market of this
National Escapees Rally there were booths for
various businesses. One booth held The Chi
Machine and Far Infrared Dome from HTE.
I watched as people got down onto the carpeted
surface, placed their ankles on The Chi Machine
and lay on their backs as it oscillated side to
side. Their bodies jiggled sort of like when a
fish swims. They also demo'd the Far Infrared unit placing the
dome, the source of the far
Infrared heat, over backs, shoulders
or arms, as requested by each person.
When it was my turn, I asked them
to place this dome arched over my bladder, while
my ankles were on the Chi Machine. They set the
timer for four minutes.
To my AMAZEMENT, MY BLADDER PAIN
WAS GONE! In FOUR MINUTES! I noticed that my
bladder even emptied like normal - I didn't have
to sit and wait.
I thought "Well, this is
wonderful, I wonder how long this will last." I
went back to that booth the next three mornings,
they gave me FOUR MINUTES on both the Chi Machine
and FIR Dome. Every day my bladder
felt better, emptied normally, and I was PAIN
FREE! The second day I told my husband "This is
my bladder!" I was so
relieved! I had been uptight for so long, I
noticed that all of a sudden, I could take a deep breath - the
Chi Machine and Far
Infrared Dome had
not only ALLEVIATED ALL MY PAIN, but had also
caused me to RELAX!
machines were non-invasive, and not prescription
drugs, which I avoided. My reason for avoiding
Rx medications? My mother died at the very
young age of 57yrs whilst
taking x19 different
prescription medications. She was
chronically ill. As
a result I took responsibility often for our
household and my three
younger siblings. As an adult, I vowed to find
a better way for the IC and RLS.
morning of the rally, I purchased both the Chi
Machine and Far Infrared Dome. I didn't even
understand how they worked yet. I just knew THEY
DID! My thinking was that they would be in my
home, paid for, then I wouldn't have to ask a
doctor's permission, nor get in my car and drive
to an appointment. I could use them whenever i
Fast forward to
I've been using both the Chi
Machine and FIR Dome morning and night, since
receiving them in October, 2001. In the morning
it revs me up; at bedtime it relaxes me, and I
fall asleep sometimes while using them. I even
took them along in our 23 ft class C motor home
for six week trips to both Canada and Texas. I
cushioned them with pillows, as we drove over
roads so rough I feared it would shake our motor
home to pieces. No
I put the Dome over my chest and
sinuses when I have problems there. I can use the
Far Infrared heat any place on my body. My
husband, family members and my 82 year old friend
Lucy, love to use them both. My grandchildren ages
2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 16, and 18yrs ALL love the Chi
Machine - they even compete to get to it first.
MY DIABETIC FRIEND NOW HAS HIS
OWN CHI MACHINE 2004
Louis age 65 years old is
diabetic and suffers from pain in his feet. He's
also had surgery on his lower and mid back. For 2yrs after I got my
machines, he came to my house on many occasions to
use them. The first time he tried my Chi Machine
he said it stopped the pain in his feet for two
hours (after using it four
minutes). After 30-45 minutes with the Far Infrared Dome on his
back, he reported GREAT! This summer he bought his
own Chi Machine because it helps his feet so much.

The Annual Update Report 2004,
contains an article about Myriam Hollock, whose
late husband suffered terribly from RLS during the
last 5 years of his life. It says that in addition
to medical treatments for RLS, there are some
"non-pharmaceutical treatments including the
Original Chi Machine which have benefited other
people she knows in their battle against RLS".
