I first heard of the Sun Ancon Chi Machine a few years ago from a friend who had previously had cancer which caused him back problems. He sang its praises and advised me to try it. I had such good results from it that I now use it in my therapy sessions too. I decided after what it had been able to do for my Back and Energy levels that I needed to spread the word amongst others. I have now sold machines all over the world including the United Arab Emirates and also take my machines into companies to help de-stress and relax their staff.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have to see if the Sun Ancon Chi Machine can help you too.

The Sun Ancon (Sun Harmony) Aerobic Exerciser is the invention of Dr. Shizuo Inoue, a Japanese Doctor of medicine and the former Chairman of Japan’s Oxygen Health Association. Dr Inoue got his idea by watching goldfish swimming and the relationship between oxygen levels in the human body and the quality of health. He combined this with his 38 years expertise from researching oxygenating exercise, with leading German exercise physiology to develop this unique health generating and internationally patented product, the Sun Ancon (Sun Harmony) Aerobic Exerciser ‘The Chi Machine’.
It is based on the patented five characteristics, including height, swing frequency (140 ± 10% times per minute), swing travel (37mm Approx.), swing angle (12 degrees approx.) and circular movement. It is a simple technological item incorporating the precise oscillatory action to ensure extensive health benefits without risk or harm that could arise from a similar product not employing stringent precision detail of the patented ‘Sun Ancon’ machine.
It is said that 80% of chronic disease problems are linked to the spine.
Aerobic exercise with the ‘Chi Machine’ will neither increase the heart-beat nor the blood pressure significantly. The massage given to the body by the ‘Chi Machine’ not only increases the elasticity of blood vessels to prevent their hardening but also helps stabilise blood pressure.
How to Use The Sun Ancon Chi Machine
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.
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
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.
PLEASE NOTE: 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.
Major Benefits Derived From the Chi Machine
Cellular Activation: Massage stimulation to the sympathetic nervous system opens up the bronchials to provide maximum oxygen access to the lungs, simultaneously the blood flow to and from the lungs is increased, enhancing oxygen exchange from the lungs to the blood and therefore to the body cells, to excite cellular metabolism.
Spinal Balancing: With the body relaxed in the lying position with no weight on the spine, the massage unit will influence a correction to certain conditions of spinal misalignment.
Improving the Immune System: The Sun Ancon Massager, the ‘Chi Machine’ stimulates globulin production which increases the immune system’s defense capacity thereby providing greater freedom from disorders and disease.
Blood Production: Blood is produced in the spleen and the spinal marrow. Reduction of splenal blood production can arise from the spleen’s susceptibility to damage. The Chi Machine’s action on the spine stimulates the sympathetic nervous system which increases spinal ‘marrow’ blood production. Any form of anaemia can be benefited by this massage action.
Restoration of balance to the Autonomic Nervous system: If the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system fail to ensure balance of function, insomnia, excessive dreaming, digestive problems, stomach pain, palpitations, anxiety, constipation, neurasthenia and excessive forms of aches and pains as well as mental stress may surface. The influence of the ‘Chi Machine’ on the sympathetic nervous systems can restore the vital balance to the nervous system, resulting in restoration of health from such conditions.
Exercising Internal Organs: Western medical science is beginning to consider ancient Eastern traditions that focus healing and good health on a life-force energy that flows in channels through all living things. Acupuncture and associated therapies are being increasingly used by Western practitioners to ‘invigorate’ the life-force energy flow to restore health to unhealthy organs. The Chinese refer to this energy as Chi. The Sun Ancon massager will aid in unblocking ‘Chi’ pathways and ensure a maximum flow of this healing source, through all body and organs, to restore normal or improved functioning to impaired organs, and body systems related to such organs.
Flinders University Trial
The results were released in January 2002 and we are pleased to report that they are very positive.
Secondary lymphoedema is characterised by the swelling of the leg(s). It occurs in men following surgery and/or radiotherapy for the treatment of bowel and prostate cancer and in women following bowel, breast cervical and other reproductive system cancers, where the treatment damages or removes the lymph nodes. About 30% of all men and women who have these treatments develop some sort of limb swelling. It is believed that another 30% of these patients have problems such as aches/pain, heaviness and problems with quality of life and activities of daily living.
Venous oedema occurs when the venous blood system is not draining and/or circulating well as a result of venous insufficiency from disease, varicose veins or previous deep vein thrombosis. It is estimated about 5-6% of the adult population suffer venous oedema. A further number suffer from some discomfort of the limbs or problems with quality of life and activities of daily living.
Each patient was allocated a Sun Ancon Chi Machine which they used for 21 days in their home adhering to a particular regime:
Days 1-2, 5 minutes both morning and evening, Days 3-7 8 minutes both morning and evening, Days 8-21: 12 minutes both morning and evening. Patients returned to Flinders University Medical Centre at the end of each week for a further full assessment. In addition there was a follow-up assessment one month later to assess the longer term impact of the treatment. The research encompassed three groups — a group made up of people with normal healthy legs, a group of people with secondary lymphoedema a group with venous oedema.
In brief, the results were as follows:
For people without any medical problems…
– A slight reduction in fluids in the limbs The group experienced a reduction of 45 mls in fluids over the three week period.
– A reduction in weight The group lost an average of 0.6 kg over three weeks.
– A reduction in percentage body fat.
For people with secondary lymphoedema due to lymphatic damage and those with venous oedema through venous insufficiency…
– A significant reduction the limb volume and circumference. Extra-cellular fluid for the group with secondary lymphoedema fell over the three week period. One month after the trial the fluids had risen but not back to their original levels.
– A significant loss of oedema fluid from the limbs. The group with venous oedema experienced an average volume loss of 440 mls of leg fluid over the three-week period. Fluid levels had increased one month after the trials but they were not back to their original levels.
– A significant loss of weight Average weight loss for the group with venous oedema was 1.45 kgs over the three week period. This remained stable at the one month follow up. Of those with secondary lymphoedema, average weight loss was 0.5 kgs and this remained stable at the one month follow up.
– A reduction in percentage body fat
– An improvement in lymphatic drainage Lymphoscintigraphy showed a marked improvement in lymphatic function.
– A significant improvement in subjective symptoms Most participants reported a reduction in pain, tightness, heaviness, skin dryness, limb size difference, cramps, pins and needles, burning feeling and temperature difference.
– A satisfaction with the treatment an an improvement in the quality of life.
85-88% of participants were satisfied with the treatment regime. There were also improvements with the feeling of control participants had over their condition, range of movement, positive impact on daily life and an increase in the ability to exercise.
Chi Machine Testimonials
Diane Smail- M.E
Joy kindly gave me a loan of the ‘Sun Ancon Chi machine’. I suffer from M.E and by using this machine I had more energy,felt more relaxed and I ad less pain in my joints and muscle’s. I also had a more restful sleep. If I could afford ‘The Chi machine’ I’d have bought one. It really is amazing!……..
Moray Johnstone- Back pain
I have also had use of one of the chi machines and it helps very well with my back pain I get from my job as a landscape gardener, so much so that I can go out to work without pain killers the day after using the machine. I could not recommend the services enough.
A testimonial from Joelle an M.E. sufferer on the Chi machine.
Joy thanks for letting me use this magic machine, if anyone is interested in removing aches and pains this is the thing. (joy has not paid me to say this!) I can imagine why people would be wary anything this simple could do anything dramatic without drugs or manipulation . I wish I had had access to it sooner. forgotten how it could feel to have no sore places in my body!
Mrs S C Kent, UK- Stiff muscles
As an ex-dancer at the age of 51, my body’s beginning to stiffen up a bit. The first thing I noticed about the Chi Machine was that my back, neck and shoulders have become supple again. Now, as a busy primary school teacher, a job that requires a lot of energy, I wouldn’t be without 15 minutes on my machine every morning
V.T. Kent, UK
I had constant pain from a neck and shoulder problem. X-ray results revealed degenerative changes with disc space narrowing and osteophytosis particularly at C6/7, Partial congenital fusion of C2/3. I needed regular osteopathy treatment and was told there was no cure as it was wear and tear. I have had my Chi Machine for 18 months and since then I have not needed to visit my osteopath. I am totally free from pain, also I have stayed free of colds and flu, and my energy levels have improved greatly.
Mr and Mrs G Ward Leicester, UK – Sciatica
For about two years I was in a lot of pain with sciatica down the left side and leg. As I am allergic to codeine and other pain killing medications, all I could have was paracetamol which meant taking them for a short term only because long term use would cause complications and even liver damage.
Both my husband and I use The Chi Machine daily, resulting in a normal life, free from pain and medication – now that can’t be a bad thing?
Mrs White- Edinburgh- Lymphodema
The Chi machine has helped me with the fluid retention I have had for years after recieving treatment for Cancer. I have also been able to use it on my arms.
