History of The Chi Machine

The Chi Machine Therapeutic Massager helps virtually anyone relax muscles locally with little or no conscious effort. You just lay face-up on the floor with both feet placed in the specially designed footrest. The Chi Machine rocks the entire body from side to side in a gentle undulating motion.

The Chi Machine Therapeutic Massager is the culmination of 38 years of research and development by Dr. Shizuo Inoue, a medical visionary and developer of the world renowned Chi Machine. The patented precision design of this innovative medical device utilizes optimum body positioning to achieve the ultimate in local muscle relaxation. This design also provides temporary relief from minor muscular aches due to overexertion.

Dr. Inoue spent decades researching the relationship between body movement and your body's natural Oxygen levels. Appointed Chairman of Japan's Oxygen Health Association, he was assigned the task to find the solution. Legend has it that he was inspired for the concept behind The Chi Machine as he watched Goldfish swimming in their bowl. He noticed that their bodies undulated back and forth, but the fish remained motionless. Upon further inquiries, he discovered that the undulation of the Goldfish's spine, released the required Oxygen the fish needed to survive under water.

Engineers took his concept and created the technical design for The Chi Machine. There were many trials that were performed, and after years of research, Dr. Inoue discovered that there was only one frequency that provided our bodies with only positive benefits. The pattern of motion that The Chi Machine generates in the human body uses minimum effort and achieves maximum results, says Dr. Inoue.

Massage is the manipulation of soft tissue for the purpose of increasing overall comfort by temporarily relieving minor muscular pain and discomfort caused by fatigue or overexertion. The first records of massage date back 3000 years to early Chinese folk medicine. Western civilizations were introduced to the benefits of massage by Greek and Roman physicians.

The Chi Machine blends the ancient arts with modern technology for a unique therapeutic massage experience. The Chi Machine maximizes the movement of the body which helps to provide prompt temporary reliefthrough increased Oxygen levels. Fatigue or excess physical exertion can generally lead to minor muscular aches, pain and tension. The Chi Machine supports temporary relief from these conditions without creating undue stress to bodily structures or additional muscular overexertion, while improving your circulation and organ function.

Because the massage with The Chi Machine is performed while you are reclining and relaxed, with weight removed from the spine, a sense of extreme comfort and pleasure is immediate and noticeable.

Since 1990, over one million Chi Machines have been sold worldwide. The Chi Machine has gained a tremendous reputation for its solid construction and outstanding benefits. And, unlike many types of medical devices, The Chi Machine is easy to use, providing excellent results without stress or injury to the body.

"It is my opinion as a CMT that the Sun Ancon Chi Machine is a life long tool to good health maintenance. The body has an automatic set of responses to cell injury, primarily inflammation. The actions of the cardiovascular, immune, and nervous system enhance repair to the cell injury. I am convinced the Sun Ancon Chi Machine, while causing no stress to the heart, increases the flow of oxygen of the blood and eliminates stagnation of lymph fluids. I highly recommend the Sun Ancon Chi Machine as a tool to achieve better health."

Uri Wallick, CMT
Massage Therapist

"Firefighting is historically very hard on the cardiovascular systems of the firefighters. Chronic illness involving the heart and lungs is common in older and retired personnel. The Chi Machine not only prepares us to enter hazardous environments and work hard, it works to reverse the effects of our job that would normally result in chronic lung or heart disease."

Michel DeLisle
Paramedic / Firefighter

"The first time I used the HotHouse I felt I had more movement in my neck. I had significant relief of pain and slept much better. After one treatment I knew I had to own this equipment. The Chi Machine seemed to relieve tension and stress. Sleep comes much easier with use at bedtime."

Dr. John Whittaker
Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

"I am a Massage Therapist with a practice of 20 years. I'm interested in what The Chi Machine can do for my clients. I've had some interesting results with an ALS patient. When he was on the Chi Machine during a massage session, I noticed his body actually softened its contractions especially in the legs making it easier for me to work on him. I feel like I made progress! I was thinking how helpful it might be for my Fibromyalga clients and elderly clients that have a difficult time with movement. I'm thinking it might help them soften some of their rigid tissue through lack of mobility. I am looking forward to experiencing some positive results."
