The Chi Machine by Sun Ancon
The Chi Machine
The Chi Machine is a remarkable invention! So simple to use, yet so effective in so many respects: relaxing, massaging, stimulating, oxygenating, energizing and… enjoyable. It is hard to believe that such a seemingly uncomplicated device could do so much, but that is the beauty of the Chi Machine – 38 years of research, development, and testing in an easy-to-use package.
It provides a relaxing, therapeutic massage that leaves you with a wonderful tingling sensation, the result of increased oxygen and blood flow. These two fundamentals do several things to improve your health and quality of life.
Every one of us has stories to tell about how this machine has helped. After over nine years, every one of us still uses the Chi Machine almost, if not, daily, and looks forward to doing so. What better endorsement is there?! The reason that you too will use your Chi Machine every day is not because you have to, but because you want to.
Here is what you need to do: Just lie down, put your feet up, and the Chi Machine does the rest.
How it works
Once you are lying down with your ankles cradled on the Chi Machine, you simply set the timer to the desired amount of time and relax. The gentle, undulating ‘goldfish’ motion will sway your body from “toe to head.” There are three basic positions for your arms, each of which stimulates and exercises the body in a different way.
What the Chi Machine’s figure-8, goldfish movement does:
• Performs a pure aerobic activity to create an oxygen surplus in the body
• Gives the equivalent oxygen benefit of an hour walk, in just ten minutes!
• Relaxes muscles, relieving tension in back, neck, and shoulders
• Improves circulation of blood and lymph
• Massages internal organs
• Speeds detoxification and healing
• Rejuvenates and energizes body and mind
• Makes you feel good!
Other commonly reported benefits of the Chi Machine:
• Fewer aches and pains
• Better elimination
• Stronger immune system
• Relief from headaches
• More energy and greater sense of well being
• Stronger and more limber spine and joints
• Better skin tone
• Sounder, more restful sleep
• Greatly increased ability to relax and let go of stress and tension
"The pattern of motion the Chi Machine generates in the human body uses minimum effort and achieves maximum results," says Dr. Inoue. "It improves the basic metabolism of the body, increases our energy, adds flexibility to our lives and improves our attitude. It can also increase our sense of awareness and balances the connection between mind and body."
"Use the minimum amount of effort and achieve the maximum result of having exercised...." Dr. Inoue, Inventor of the Chi Machine
History of the Chi Machine
The Chi Machine was developed in Japan by Keiichi Ohasahi, president and engineer of Skylite Industry. Although originally known as Sun Harmony, it was later changed to Sun Ancon. The motion it provides was taken from a historic cartial arts exercise known as the 'Goldfish exercise'. The concept of the chi machine came from Shizuo Inoue, a scientist researching the effects of oxygenation in the body. It's premise is that a lack of oxygenation within the body is a primary cause of disease.
HTE stands for Hsin Ten Enterprise International who, in collablration with Skylite Industry in Japan, have trademarked the Chi Machine name meaning only HTE sell the original chi machine carrying the original patents.
The Sun Ancon Chi Machine holds FDA approval as a Class 1 Therapeutic Massager.

Customer Reviews & Feedback
"Dell and I are fine and really liking our new CHI machine. We can’t wait to get on it in the morning and then do another session just before bed. We both can report feeling looser through the hips, (we were both so tight and stiff in those joints), sleeping better and it is very relaxing. I have a little CD player and have it near the yoga matt and play it quietly while on the machine. I go on for about 15 minutes and Dell seems to like it right around the 12 minute mark."

We ordered a Chi Machine from you a few months ago after talking to Martin about it. I thought I should share my experiences with the Chi Machine.
I have been experiencing hip and knee pain for almost 2 years. Going to a chiropractor helped for a week or so, which meant weekly appointments. It was so bad that I had a permanent limp and constant pain, to the point where some nights it was difficult to sleep. I was taking advil like smarties. My neighbor noticed this during a visit and suggested using his Chi Machine. To be honest, I was skeptical but decided to try it. He put me on a 6 minute session. After that 6 minutes, I got up and had zero pain and no limp. I know it sounds inconceivable, but it happened. My wife was just as astonished as I was. Six minutes fixed what the chiropractor could not do in 2 years. It was an easy decision then to buy our own. Since ours has arrived, we have been using it 1 or 2 times a day.
The changes we are experiencing are amazing. I still have no hip pain, bending over is no longer a one way trip. I can kneel down, pick up feed bags, chop wood, walk with our dog in the forest and enjoy life more. I haven't taken an advil for over 2 months, because there is no pain. Other things we have noticed is no heartburn, more energy, way better sleeps and no back pain. My wife has even noticed a reduction in weight and toning in her legs and waist. Even our skin tone has changed, which I believe is due to the increased oxygen in our bodies. We are both up to 12 minutes per session, still once or twice per day and the results just keep coming. Since we can now move better, we feel better which gets us outside more, getting fresh air and more exercise. All this works together to increase health and improve your mood, which circles back to improving your overall health, both physically and emotionally.
