Chi Machine

Allow your body to work effortlessly with its own natural frequencies

Dr. Shizuo Inoue was the Chairman of Japan's Oxygen Health Association. With over 38 years of experience, he developed and designed the Original Sun Ancon Chi Machine. Dr. Inoue's design of the Chi Machine was based on human physiology allowing the body to work effortlessly with its own natural frequencies. The machine's figure 8 goldfish movement provides maximum movement of the body without undue pressure on the spine.

The Original Sun Ancon Chi Machine has one oscillation speed of approximately 140-144 cycles per minute. This oscillation speed is the speed Dr. Inoue found to be most beneficial for the circulatory system and for promoting overall well-being. Dr Inoue expressed in his book, Aerobic Respiration Exercise and Health, that a lack of the body's ability to properly utilize oxygen could result in pain, numbness, stiffness, itchiness and other signs of inflammation. He also believed that if this state continued within the body for long periods of time it could lead to more serious health conditions.

Whether we’re standing, sitting or driving throughout the day, our vertebrae and cartilaginous spinal discs must bear the oppression for 8-12 hours or more. When you can lie down to let your spine bear nothing and you are gently, rhythmically shaken right and left by the chi machine, you will feel revitalization and relief. It is important to breathe deeply and think happy calming thoughts while using the Chi Machine. Its soothing motion helps promote relaxation and a more restful sleep.


The motion created by the Chi Machine acts as a passive aerobic exerciser and creates a lateral flexion on the spine which stimulates and relaxes the sympathetic (a part of the autonomic) nervous system and creates an alpha wave state similar to meditation allowing you to relax. This relaxation 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. With the expansion of the bronchi and alveoli due to breathing deep more oxygen is able to pass from your lungs into your circulatory system. Once in your circulatory system, the blood carries the oxygen to all the cells in your body.

Using the machine regularly brings the equivalent oxygen benefit of one and a half hours of walking. It stimulates lymphatic drainage, critical to our immune system and clearing disease. And it’s an energy balancer, creating a vibrational frequency that frees up flow through the meridians (energetic pathways of the body), clears unbalanced energy and brings balance back into your mind, body and spirit.

Chi machine sessions give your body increased blood flow, a faster metabolic rate, deepened respiration, relaxed nerves and muscles, lymphatic drainage (speeds up detoxification & healing), improved circulation of the blood, improved function of the blood, tension release, and stimulation the organs throughout the body. Its rhythmic action loosens and soothes tired muscles. What you’ll notice is relief of tension in the back, neck and shoulders, better stamina, weight loss, relief of nerve & joint pain, more energy, greater sense of wellbeing, deeper and more restful sleep, a stronger immune system, alleviation of many stress-related conditions, and feeling refreshed and light.

The machine's simple nature and passive aerobic movement may temporarily promote detoxification and healing. It may firm your hips, thighs, and abdomen and often will support a healthy weight. 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 temporarily relaxes the muscles throughout the body including the back, neck and shoulders. It may also improve the flow of chi or energy, as well as relieving muscular aches and pains throughout the body. It performs a pure aerobic activity and operates at the best oscillation speed to promote deep breathing and temporarily improve circulation. It can rejuvenate every aspect of your body while you simply lie on the floor with your ankles resting on the machine.
