The CHI MACHINE Health Benefits
Oxygenation Action of the Chi Machine
75 trillion cells provide the body with energy to carry out every brain function, body movement and needs of all body systems and organ function. Each cell has only two needs to produce this energy, nutriment from food intake and oxygen.
Oxygen Starvation of cells can result in immune dysfunction, cardiac symptoms, sleep and respiratory disorders blood chemistry disturbance, intestinal problems, anxiety, depression, headaches, fatigue, stiff neck, shortness of breath, dizziness, to name but a few health problems.
The Chi Machine will aid in healing and prevention of such disorders by maximizing oxygenation of body cells; the body's response to exercise and to massage. "When ever I get the urge to exercise, I lie down until it passes off" G.K. Chesterton (Famous English writer) (In this statement, is considerable wisdom, because of the spinal benefit that ensues when resting prone). Vigorous exercise, while offering health benefits, can place extreme strain on body energy production. Associated rapid breathing or gasping for breath, arises from excessive build up of carbon dioxide and demand for oxygen to replenish depleted energy to serve the vital needs of the body. Such exercise can also add to the compacting of inter vertebral discs. Unless pursuing some endurance goal, vigorous exercise is not a vital health recourse.
The Chi Machine Provides The Answer to Being Healthy Without Energy Loss, Body Stress Or Effort
Because the exercise massage is done in the lying down, relaxed position, with all loads and stress reduced on the spine and other body areas during maximum oxygenation and subsequent energy production, the sense of well-being arising from the massage, is immediate and noticeable.
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 area. This may suggest a healthy circulation is being restored. Soreness might also relate to an old injury or "Chi" energy flow blockage. It soreness occurs, reduce session time to 2-3 minutes and gradually return to 15 minutes massage if soreness ceases.
Dizziness might accompany initial massage sessions, reducing the session by half and raising the head with a small pillow should resolve the problem. Persistent dizziness could point to an inner ear or anemic problem, some, (women especially) may suffer dizziness and headache suggesting high blood pressure. Nausea may indicate low blood pressure. Seek medical advice regards such matters before continuing the massage sessions.
Lymph fluid in the body exceeds the quantity of blood and one of its functions is to cleanse the body's waste. Lymph fluid has no pump action to move it around the body but its cleansing of waste toxic matter will be aided by the Sun Ancon massage. Such cleansing may cause bad breath and also thirst, water cleanses and aides in lymph cleansing, so drink plenty of water to hasten the cleansing and remove any breath problem.
Spinal Influence on Health
Within the brain and extending through the core of the spinal column, is the central nervous system and branching out from it is the nerve network that reaches every part of the body and provides all body functioning not under conscious control, (breathing, digestion, heart rate etc.) This extended nerve network is termed the autonomic nervous system and it further divides into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems which provide vital balance to the body's nerve functioning. Any impairment to the spinal alignment or abnormal spinal pressure on vertebrae joints can impair the autonomic nervous system resulting in minor and major body dysfunction, disorder and disease. The spinal column bone marrow is also a source of blood production and immune system globulin upon which middle aged adults are more dependent, following depletion of globulin production from the aged and shrinking thymus gland.
Utilization of Full Spinal Movement
The spines design permits sideways snake-like movement that serves to relieve vertebrae joint pressure and thereby promote greater well being. Modern man fails to exercise this design feature, part of the reason being that stress of mind creates body tension and rigidity. Spinal movement has been reduced to a forward and upright bending action and even in walking, the natural twisting - sideways movement of the spine from arm, leg and upper torso momentum, is restrained by body tensions. When we awaken or feel tired, we raise our arms, stretch and yawn, and in the process, flex the spinal column in a twisting snake-like movement. Instantly we feel a pleasurable sensation of energy movement and alertness of mind. The reason being that in yawning, the lungs fill with air and greater oxygenation of cells occurs, pressure on the inter vertebral discs momentarily releases and the autonomic nervous system is stimulated. (Do a yawning stretch now to verify the value of such oxygenation and spinal twist).
A glance at the animal kingdom and at sea creatures shows how they use snake-like movement in their walk, run or swimming action providing benefits that keep them free of almost every human ailment. The Chi Machine will deliver the best possible lateral snake-like movement to the spine with the body in the ideal therapeutic position. When the massage concludes you may experience the therapeutic benefit of a sensation similar to that of yawning and stretching (an indication of the massager's genuine value). Many people describe this warm afterglow effect as dreamy or mildly euphoric.
The CHI MACHINE Health Benefits
SIX MAJOR FUNCTIONS
1. Cellular activation
The body is made up of 70 different types of cells. Cells are like chemical factory's, constantly putting out complex chemical reactions. The cells need oxygen to carry out these reactions otherwise they cease to function.
When you use the Sun Harmony exerciser there are two important physiological reactions which help to activate the cells: A. The sympathetic nervous system is activated which opens up the bronchioles and thus promotes movement of oxygen into the lungs. B. Promotes blood flow to the lungs there by increasing oxygen exchange and blood oxygen levels which in turn helps to promotes cellular metabolism.
2. Spinal balancing
The spine is one of the most important parts of the body. but it is also easily injured. When you have a back injury this can bring about sickness in other parts of the body. Money and time spent on getting spinal treatments can add up to astronomical levels.
The Sun Harmony exerciser works your spine and gives results like those obtained from a traditional "tui na" massage. Using the machine can help you to keep a healthy spine and straighten out any kinks and tightness that you may have.
3. Improving the immune system
The only two organs which can produce immune system globulin are the spinal recognizer and the thymus. From the age of 40 in men and 35 in women the thymus begins to shrink leaving the job of globulin production to the spine.
Using the Sun Harmony exerciser stimulates the spinal immune recognizer which in turn produces more globulin. As globulin levels in the body increase the body's immune defenses are strengthened and illness is easier to avoid or resist. The side to side spinal movement created by the Sun Harmony exerciser stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and helps to strengthen the blood production capacity of the spine. It can therefore help to improve anemia.
4. Stimulating the sympathetic nervous system and bone marrow blood production.
Blood is produced in spinal bone marrow and in the spleen. Because it is easily affected by both internal and external problems the spleen's blood production function is limited. Therefore the job of producing new blood is left mainly to the spine. The side to side spinal movement created by the Sun Harmony exerciser stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and helps to strengthen the blood production capacity of the spine. It can therefore help to improve anemia.
5. Exercise internal organs and build "Chi"
When you use the Sun Harmony exerciser close your eyes and gently feel the changes in your body. the gentle sideways movement of the machine swings all of the joints in your spine, giving you a gentle external spinal massage: in the instant when the machine stops, if you pay attention you will fell a rush of energy beginning at the soles of your feet and going right to the top of your head. This is the internal "Chi" massage.
When you have this feeling you are receiving the same benefits that you would get if you practiced chi kung. By adding external and internal exercise and massage together your internal organs get the best possible benefits.
6. Balancing the Autonomic Nervous System
In the busy modern world pressure and nervous strain can often result in an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system. This can result in neurasthenia, insomnia, excess dreaming, digestive problems and stomach pain, palpitation, anxiety, constipation, general aches and pains and similar " diseases of civilization".
Only by stimulating activity of the sympathetic nervous system is it possible to counteract the effects of over activation of the parasympathetic nervous system and thereby bringing the autonomic nervous system back into balance. By using the Sun Harmony you can stimulate the sympathetic nervous system and thereby balance the autonomic nervous system If you use it regularly you can slowly improve your resistance "diseases of civilization".
