"I have more pep and energy than before. I can work better. When I would drive, I had difficulty looking over my shoulder. Using the Chi Machine has loosened my neck. It has enhanced the mobility of my body. I have more mobility everywhere. I had a sore neck that always hurt. One day I had a headache, so I did a Chi. The pain in my neck went away, the headache was gone, and I felt really good. I also lost 8 pounds, mostly around the tummy, the first month we had the machine. The other day we drove to Cut Bank, which is about an 85 mile drive, and we didn't get tired. We are very happy to have the Chi Machine. Today, it would be hard to find anyone happier than we are.”
- Bill K.
"I'm walking. I feel better all over. I had a lot of pain. My hips were always sore in the morning. We have a very good bed, but that didn't help. I don't have that soreness anymore. If I'm feeling overly tired, I do a Chi and my energy is restored. I do tire quite easily."
- Eleanor K.(Bill’s wife)
