HOW THE CHI MACHINE WORKS
The machines simple nature increases detoxification and healing. It oscillates from right to left, or left to right, approximately 144 times per minute. In just 15 minutes it gives your body the equivalent oxygen benefit of 1½ hours of walking. It may firm your hips, thighs, and abdomen and often will support weight loss. The figure-8 motion of the machine is similar to the movement of a goldfish. This movement has a marked beneficial effect upon the human body. It relaxes the nerves and muscles, improves energy flow, as well as relieving tension in the back, neck and shoulders. It performs a pure aerobic activity and operates at the best oscillation speed to 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 the machine. It is important to breathe deeply and think happy calming thoughts while using the original machine. It also promotes relaxation and a more restful sleep. It does the work and you get the benefits of improved circulation of blood flow and lymphatic system.
CHI MACHINE BENEFITS
I have always said that the Chi Machine not only provides benefits similar to a hands on massage, the Chi Machine’s three main benefits are it promotes Oxygen, Energy, and Circulation in 5 minutes! It also reduces extra cellular whole body fluid and leg fluid. Many people can feel the improved circulation and flow of energy once the chi machine stops. This is known as the “Chi Rush”.
The “Chi Rush” feels like a tingling feel that flows throughout the body. The Chi Rush feeling reminds me of a carbonated beverage or champagne with all its bubbles. Some people may feel this tingling all the way through their body to their fingertips while others may only feel it throughout certain areas of their body like their arms, legs or abdomen.
IMPROVING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The machine’s movement stimulates globulin production which increases the immune system’s defense capacity. This also increases the movement of the lymph fluid in the body. Increased lymph flow cleanses and removes harmful substances from our tissues and increases our immune function. The lymphatic system has no “pump” action of its own. It relies on muscle contraction through deep breathing, exercise, and manual manipulation to move its fluid around in the body. The Chi Machine effectively moves the body’s fluids and aids the Lymphatic system, especially in those who are physically challenged or do not get sufficient exercise. Lymphatic massage can be useful in cases of edema, sports injury, for people experiencing a sluggish immune system, or who suffer from a general lack of energy. Cleansing your body may cause bad breath or thirst, so make sure to drink plenty of “good” water.
Blood is produced in the spleen and spinal bone marrow. The Chi’s massage action on the spine stimulates the Sympathetic Nervous System which increases the spinal “marrow” blood production. Anyone who suffers from anemia may benefit from this massage action.
RESTORATION OF BALANCE TO THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM
If the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems fail to maintain a balanced function, problems such as insomnia, excessive dreaming, digestive problems, stomach pain, anxiety, constipation, palpitations, extensive forms of aches and pains as well as mental stress may surface. The Chi Machine influences the sympathetic nervous system so it can restore the vital balance it needs to function at its best.
EXERCISING INTERNAL ORGANS AND BUILDING “CHI”
“Chi” is a Chinese word that refers to life force or life energy. Chi increases the feeling of aliveness and well being. Chi is the permeating energy within the universe and it creates vitality. The Chi Machine aids in unblocking the “Chi” pathways and ensures a maximum flow of healing source throughout your body and organs. Many individuals with the following concerns Lack of Exercise, Poor Digestion, Arthritis, Bone Spurs, Nervousness, Insomnia, Poor Functioning Internal Organs, Tracheal Inflammation, Anemia, Overall Circulation, Headaches, Tired and Sore Muscles, Constipation, Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, General Chronic Pain, Lymphatic Drainage, Asthma, Painful Periods, Concerned about Weight Loss, Poor Leg Circulation and Migraines have received benefits from using the Sun Ancon Chi Machine.
