What is a Chi Machine?

Chi Machines are a type of aerobic exercise equipment that feels more like a gentle massage than a workout. They have been shown to increase blood oxygen levels, which is great for brain health and energy. They also have been shown to stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps reduce fluid in the legs for a slimmer look. For people who cannot exercise, they offer a way to move, stretch, and burn calories without the risk of injury or strain.

Developed by Dr. Shizuo Inoue

Chi Machines were invented by Dr. Shizuo Inoue in Japan in the 1980s. Dr. Inoue was interested in treating chronic illness, and got an idea by watching goldfish swimming that spinal movement was key. Noting that fish must obtain oxygen without having lungs, Dr. lnoue thought that the steady undulation of the spine caused the fish's whole body to be exercised and oxygenated. Oxygen starvation of the cells results in many disorders in the human body.


Relieve vertebrate joint pressure

Dr. Inoue found an ingenious way to mimic this movement with a machine that didn’t take up much space and could safely target the spine. The spine's design permits sideways, snake-like movements that serve to relieve vertebrate joint pressure. Chi Machines offer gentle, lateral snake-like movement of the spine with the body in the ideal therapeutic position: a prone, relaxed rosition, with load and stress reduced on the spine and other areas.





 

Body Stimulator & Exerciser

Just one use can improve circulation, massage back muscles,
and get an energizing boost of oxygen.


How to Use a Chi Machine

chimachine-lp-10-2.png

1. Hydrate first

For detoxing purposes and better results, drink at least a half glass of water before and after a Chi Machine Session.


2. Lay on your back and put your ankles in the cradle

To get the best results from a chi machine session, keep your muscles completely relaxed and your body loose. Clear your mind and maintain a steady breath.


3. Meditate

Relax, close your eyes breathe gently and deeply, and feel your body growing strong and healthy. Visualization and meditation helps to balance your chi, or vital energy. The movement of the ankle cradles swings your legs so that a wave-like movement massages the joints in your spine, giving you a gentle Spinal Massage.


4. 20-minute Sessions whenever needed

The auto-shutoff feature will end the session after usually 15 or 20 minutes, at which point you can stand up and walk around.

When the machine stops

You will feel a rush of energy at the soles of your feet, going right to the head. Do not get up immediately! Experience the aftereffect for a few minutes, the feeling will subside. This passive aerobic exercise oxygenates, tones and strengthens the body while increasing feelings of wellbeing, raising the life force (the “chi”) in the body.

 

An Effective Passive Aerobic Workout

Some conditions make going to the gym impossible.
Chi Machines make exercise accessible for those who need it most.

PROFESSIONAL MODEL
USJ-815 by U.S. Jaclean
Rating: chimachine-lp-33-3.png
Review: If you’re willing to spend the money, this machine is definitely worth it. It is tried and tested, having been a customer favorite for more than 10 years.
chimachine-lp-34.png Pros: chimachine-lp-35.png Cons:
Strong motor, wide and comfortable padded ankle cradle, convenient hand held controller for disruption-free speed adjustment. We suggest the bundle with twist disc in order to increase spinal stretching while using the chi machine. This is the more expensive model, for professional use. If you want to test out a cheaper model, this might not be best.

DELUXE MODEL
USJ-201 by U.S. Jaclean
Rating: chimachine-lp-36.png
Review: The Swing Master Deluxe by U.S. Jaclean is recommended as a starter chi machine since it is the best value for the price. Even though it’s budget-friendly, it includes key features like the remote speed adjustment and auto-shutoff. Unit is very lightweight at only 9 lb and easy to move. We suggest getting the bundle with twist disc in order to increase spinal stretch while using the chi machine.
chimachine-lp-34.png Pros: chimachine-lp-35.png Cons:
Budget-friendly, small and lightweight, easy to operate. Good for smaller/lighter bodies and those new to Chi Machines. Too lightweight for larger people or heavier legs. Ankle cradle is not as comfortable as the upgraded version.
