                       HOW TO USE THE SUN ANCON CHI MACHINE

Simply lie on a firm surface, place your feet on the machine and relax. Set the timer and then enjoy the sensations.


Observing some guidelines will ensure you get the best from your Chi machine

Do not Use the Chi Machine….

  • for one hour after eating a heavy meal and half an hour after a light meal.
  • within 3 months of surgery or bone fracture
  • if suffering from open wounds or infections
  • with serious heart disease (unable to walk)
  • during the first trimester of pregnancy

Massage Session Periods

In the first instance of receiving your machine there may be a tendency to risk giving yourself a longer time on it that recommended. This can be detrimental to your health and in this case little is better than more. If you follow the instruction and gradually increase your time on the massager you will find the benefits will build up.

If over 55 years of age you should limit sessions to 2 to 5 minute periods daily. If no discomfort is experienced sessions can be extended to 5 to 10 minutes during the second week and then to the normal session time of 15 minutes in the third week.

Those under 55 years of age should initially do 5 minutes each session daily but can readily increase to 15 minutes at their own discretion if no discomfort is experienced.

There is no limit to the daily sessions other than those mentioned above, or to the full range of the timer setting, but it is recommended that a reasonable break be given between sessions.

If you are on medication and given 2 tablets daily and did not think they were working, you would not take 10 tablets as you would expect an overdose situation. It is the same with the Chi Machine.


Getting Started

Place the Chi Machine on a firm surface with the handle facing away from you. Plug the massager into the electricity supply. Remove any tight clothing, spectacles, watches, shoes and any other items which may cause you discomfort.

Have some pillows nearby in case you need to put them under your knees or other parts of the body if movement is restricted badly.

Naturally it is much better to do without support and gradually as you begin to benefit from the Chi Machine you will not need these supports. From the outset it is best NOT to place a pillow under the head. This could interfere with the body height in relation to the machine height. A light cover is sometimes useful because as you relax the body temperature can drop and you may feel a little cool.

Before you start the machine you will need to drink a glass of water. This is important. Why the water? Water is the medium that carries the “Chi” around the body and acts as a clearing tool and takes the oxygen to the organs. As you pass more water you detox your system. At the end of your session another glass of water is taken to continue the process.

Set your timer and relax allowing the mind to find a quieter place. You may wish to play some relaxing music as you enjoy the gentle massage received as the ankle rest rocks back and forth moving your body in a gentle gold fish like movement from the feet upwards to the top of your head.

When the timer stops the massager you stay where you are. You may feel the rush of Chi moving around your body as a tingling from head to toe or you may feel very peaceful. It is in this stillness at the end of the movement that you will gain added benefits because 40% of the treatment is when the machine is moving and 60% in the moments after. When the Chi rush has finished or you have lain quietly for some moments place your feet on the floor as near your buttocks as possible with the feet close together. The knees will then be at a 45 degree angle. After a few minutes of inertia, let the knees fall to one side then gently to the other, keeping the hips on the floor. Do this for approximately 6 times each side, more if you prefer, then take your time in returning to a standing position by rolling over on your side. Don’t forget to drink your water!

A full instruction leaflet will be supplied on purchase of the machine.


There are 3 positions recommended for “The Chi Machine” Try experimenting but remember, always make sure that you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible.


The Neutral position

Chi Machine Neutral position

 Lie with your arms relaxed by your sides at about a 45 degree angle. This position is particularly good for the release of tension, mood balancing, insomnia, internal organ discomfort, constipation and lower back problems.


The Mid Position


Place both hands under your head with fingers clasped. This position exaggerates the curves of the spine and will impart a stronger motion to the spinal column. Good for migraines, headaches, misaligned spine, backache, gout and arthritis.


The Stretched Back Position

 Stretch both arms above your head keeping them as straight as possible. You may want to place a pillow under them to start with. This position puts a stretch through the whole body and can help weight loss, muscle toning, to relieve shoulder tendonitis, muscle tension and upper back pain.


The Chi Machine provides the answer to being healthy without energy loss, stress or effort!

Most people experience a deep sense of relaxation during the massage and a pleasurable to exhilarating feeling following the massage.



Some may feel tired or sore in some areas. This may suggest a health circulation is being restored. Soreness might also relate to an old injury or “Chi” energy blockage. If soreness occurs reduce the session time to 2-3 minutes and gradually return to 15 minutes once soreness ceases.
