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. 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 down 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.
You may be wondering how this increase in oxygen takes place. The motion created by the passive aerobic exerciser (similar to Trager Massage) creates a lateral flexion on the spine which stimulates and relaxes the sympathetic 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, more oxygen is able to pass from your lungs into your circulatory system. Once in your circulatory system, the oxygen travels to all the cells in your body.
Medical researchers understand that the vertebrae are the channels for our nervous system. In four legged animals, the spinal column wobbles slightly from side to side as they walk. Important internal oxygenation is occurring during their walking. With us however, there is little vertebral movement during walking because we only go forward and backward on two legs. Humans do not realize that this can be associated with pain. The situation we create by walking results in low lateral vertebral movement plus a downward pressure. The machine is designed scientifically to allow the legs to sway while the body is in a relaxed, reclined position. The effect of the stimulation to our sympathetic nerves varies in relation to the swing amplitude, frequency and duration of treatment.
Chi Machine Benefits
The 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.
Cellular Activation: The massage therapy action from the machine stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, opening up the bronchioles to provide maximum oxygen access to your lungs. Simultaneously, the blood flow to and from them is increased. This enhances oxygen exchange from the lungs to the blood and then to your body cells. This will excite cellular metabolism.
We all are aware of the importance of oxygen to our bodies. By living in an oxygen-deficient environment and not feeding our cells the proper oxygen and nutrients needed for cleaning out toxins and wastes, our body fluids and blood can and will become dirty and toxic. A lack of oxygen weakens our immune system. This may lead to viral infections, damaged cells, bacterial growths, inflamed joints, serious heart and circulatory problems, toxic buildup in blood, and premature aging.
Spinal Balancing: Your body is relaxed in a supine position allowing no weight on the spine. This unit can have a correcting influence in certain conditions of spinal misalignment. It has been said that 80% of chronic diseases are linked to the spine.
Cervical Vertebrae: Migraine, insomnia, dizziness, amnesia, numbness in facial nerves, ear inflammation, ringing in the ears, high blood pressure, tonsillitis cataracts, sore throat.
Thoracic Vertebrae: Swelling thyroid, hardened neck muscles, stiff neck, pain in upper body nerves, numbness, lack of strength, tracheal inflammation, asthma, heart disease, liver disease, decreased stomach function, diabetes, allergies, inflamed kidneys, arthritis, rheumatism, hardening of the arteries, stone formation, apoplexy, decrease in immune system function.
Lumbar Vertebrae: Constipation, dysentery, hernia, varicose veins, period pains, sciatica, painful knees, difficulty in urinating, too-frequent urination, weak legs, painful soles of feet, uremia.
Sacrum: Different leg lengths, bladder inflammation, tilted womb, hemorrhoids, difficulties in getting pregnant.
Coccyx: Painful Tailbone
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 Production: 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.
