The original Sun Ancon Chi machine is the result of 38 years of medical and scientific research by renowned Japanese scientist, Dr. Shizou Inoue. The Chi machine enables the human body to gently move from side to side in a figure eight motion, much the same way a goldfish swims.
Some clients compare the movement to a massage therapist holding your ankles and gently swinging your body from side to side. Treatment consists of lying on your back, fully clothed with your ankles in the ankle cradle of the Chi machine. The movement creates a balanced, rhythmic, wave-like motion throughout your entire body, thereby increasing the body's natural absorption of oxygen.
Benefits of the Chi Machine include improved circulation and oxygenation, detoxification, lymph drainage, spinal alignment and mental focus. Clients also report increased energy and a feeling of relaxation.
To begin, clients typically use the Chi machine for four to six minutes and gradually increase to up to 30 minutes per session. The Chi machine may be used in conjunction with the far infrared heat therapy table and with all types of massage.
