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
possibly exacerbate injuries of the back or spine.
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.
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 imitation machine is
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.
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
Chi Machines also claim that weight and height
play a role in the oscillation speed of the
machine. THEY DO NOT.
original Sun Ancon Chi Machine is for ALL
body types, height, weight and age groups.
WARNING FOR MULTIPLE SPEED
IMITATION CHI MACHINES:
Elderly people are more prone to high blood
pressure, putting them through the irregular
motion eight may potentially send it surging.
people need to keep their blood pressure low,
and putting them on at high speed may increase
their blood pressure.
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
discarded the imitation machine and purchased a
Sun Ancon." - Tricia Dickens, UK, 2002.
"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.
Internal Mechanism Creates
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
Height and Weight Designed
for Optimal Effect:
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 results.
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 30yrs on the market, has the
original Chi Machine not added multiple
If you have had an
unpleasant experience with an imitation 'chi
machine' please remember, you usually get
exactly what you pay for.
