The Sun Ancon Sun Harmony Chi Machine was developed by Dr. Shizuo Inoue. Dr. Inoue was the Chairman
of Japan's Oxygen Health Association. He spent over 38 years developing and designing the passive aerobic
exerciser. He wanted the exerciser to produce natural movements of the body through a figure 8 motion. He also
wanted to provide maximum oxygenation benefits. Dr. Inoue believed that "The development of a body that
makes use of oxygen efficiently, is the secret to living healthier and longer." Dr. Shizuo Inoue, wrote
the book "Aerobic Respiration Exercise and Health". This book is on the Chi Machines Passive Aerobic
Exercise Massager. The book's main focus is on the benefits of using the chi machine, oxygen deficiency,
and pH. Dr. Inoue believes that the Chi Machine's passive aerobic exercise and oxygenation may benefit the
Bronchitis / Pneumonia.
Anxiety / Stress.
Loss of Appetite.
Rheumatism / Arthritis.

Dr. Inoue's design for the Original Chi Machine has one oscillation speed. The
speed was designed for approximately 140-144 cycles per minute. Dr. Inoue felt this speed would provide the most
benefits to the heart. Dr Inoue's design also focused on five main engineering features.
No Injury. (Since you use the chi machine lying down, there is no tension applied to any part of your body.
Your body is being fully supported in that position. Some people may need to put a pillow under their knees if
they have knee problems or issued with their lower back.)
Maximum Workout in Minimum Time.
The Original Sun Ancon Chi Machine has been patented in several countries including the
United States (patent number # 510 7822), Great Britain, Japan, Germany, and Australia. It is
registered as a medical appliance by Japan’s Medical Affairs. It is a Class II Medical Device in Canada. The Chi
Machine is also a FDA ApprovedClass One Medical Device
in the United States.
How the Sun Ancon Machine Works
The Original Chi Machine oscillates from right to left, or left to right at approximately 144
times per minute. In just 15 minutes, the chi machine gives your body the equivalent oxygenation
benefits of 1½ hours of walking. The figure-8 motion of the chi massagers is similar to the movement of a
goldfish. This movement has a beneficial effect upon the human body. This helps in relaxing nerves and muscles as
well as relieving tension in the back, neck and shoulders. This movement performs a pure aerobic activity. Its
operation is set at the best speed to help create an oxygen surplus in your body. It can rejuvenate every aspect of
your body while you just lie on the floor with your ankles resting on its cradle. It is important to breathe deeply
and think happy calming thoughts during your chi experience. Some people have found that it has helped promote a
more restful sleep. The chi machine does the work and you receive the benefits of improved blood circulation and
movement of your lymphatic system.
You may be wondering how this increase in oxygen takes
place. The motion created by the Chi Machine is similar to Trager Massage. This motion stimulates
and relaxes the sympathetic nervous system. This stimulation causes the bronchi and alveoli (tiny tubes which
branch out from your lungs) to relax and expand. These tiny bronchi and alveoli connect through a semi-permeable
membrane with the tiniest blood vessels of your circulatory system. The expansion of the bronchi and alveoli allows
more oxygen to pass from your lungs into your circulatory system. Once the oxygen is in your circulatory system, it
travels to all the cells in your body. This is why some refer to the Chi Machine as the Chi Energizer.
Medical researchers understand that the vertebrae are the channels for our nervous system. In four legged
animals, the spinal column wobbles slightly from side to side as the animal walks. Important internal oxygenation
is occurring during their walking. However, with us, there is little vertebral movement during walking because we
only go forward and backward on two legs. Humans do not realize that the way we walk and its lack of
oxygenation can be associated with pain. Several articles have been written that correlate the lack of
oxygen with chronic pain. The Chi Machine is scientifically designed to allow the legs to sway freely while the
body is in a relaxed, reclined position. The effect of the stimulation to our sympathetic nerves varies in relation
to the swing amplitude, frequency and duration of treatment. That is why it is important for you to be careful and
make sure you are purchasing the original chi machine and not an imitation chi machine. A change in the machine's movement could cause
potential negative effects. This is why I chose the Original Chi Maschine. I was already suffering with RSD, I
certainly couldn't risk any further damage with an imitation chi machine. The original Sun Ancon Chi Machine has
been found to be completely safe. It swing operation is very smooth and is important in avoiding unnecessary side
Precautions: Do Not use for at least 3 months after an
operation or bone fracture, if suffering from a serious infection, have a bleeding injury or heart disease, during
pregnancy, within 30 minutes of eating, if extreme pain occurs during use, investigate the cause and correct the
problem before reusing use of the machine. If you have a medical condition and have a question, you should consult
with your physician before using.
