Cellular Activation / Oxygenation
The Chi Machine Massage stimulation to the sympathetic nervous system opens up the bronchioles to provide maximum oxygen access to your lungs. Simultaneously, the blood flow to and from them is increased. This enhances oxygen exchange from the lungs to the blood and then to your body cells. This excites cellular metabolism.
According to Ed McCabe, author of Flood Your Body With Oxygen, by living in an oxygen-deficient environment and not feeding our cells the proper oxygen and nutrients needed for cleaning out toxins and wastes, our body fluids and blood can and will become dirty and toxic. A lack of oxygen weakens our immune system, which may lead to viral infections, damaged cells, bacterial growths, inflamed joints, serious heart and circulatory problems, toxic buildup in blood and premature aging.” Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winner, showed that the “cause of cancer is the replacement of of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar”. Simply put, cancerous cells cannot live and develop in the presence of oxygen.
Chi Machine and Blood Production
Blood is produced in the spleen and spinal bone marrow. The Chi Machine’s massage action on the spine stimulates the Sympathetic Nervous System which increases the spinal “marrow” blood production. Anyone who suffers from anemia may benefit from this massage action.
Chi Machine Spinal Balancing
Your body is relaxed in a supine position allowing no weight on the spine. This unit can have a correcting influence in certain conditions of spinal misalignment. It has been said that 80% of Chronic Diseases are Linked to the Spine.
Cervical Vertebrae: Migraine, insomnia, dizziness, amnesia, numbness in facial nerves, ear inflammation, ringing in the ears, high blood pressure, pustulence, tonsillitis cataracts, myopia, sore throat.
Thoracic Vertebrae: Swelling Thyroid, hardened neck muscles, stiff neck, pain in upper body nerves, numbness, lack of strength, tracheal inflammation, asthma, heart disease, liver disease, decreased stomach function, diabetes, allergies, inflamed kidneys, arthritis, rheumatism, hardening of the arteries, stone formation, apoplexy, decrease in immune system function.
Lumbar Vertebrae: Constipation, dysentery, hernia, varicose veins, period pains, sciatica, painful knees, difficulty in urinating, too-frequent urination, weak legs, painful soles of feet, uremia.
Sacrum: Different leg lengths, bladder inflammation, tilted womb, inflammation of the caccum, hemorrhoids, difficulties in getting pregnant.
Coccyx: Painful Tailbone
Improving the Immune System
The Chi Machine’s movement stimulates globulin production which increasee the immune system’s defense capacity, which increases the movement of the lymph fluid in the body. Increased lymph flow cleanses and removes harmful substances from our tissues and increases our immune function. The lymphatic system has no “pump” action of its own and relies on muscle contraction through deep breathing, exercise and manual manipulation to move its fluid around in the body. The Chi Machine through its movement effectively moves the body’s fluids and aids the Lymphatic system, especially in those who are physically challenged or do not get sufficient exercise. Lymphatic massage can be useful in cases of edema, sports injury, or for people experiencing a sluggish immune system or who suffer from a general lack of energy. Cleansing your body may cause bad breath or thirst, so make sure to drink plenty of “good” water.
Restoration of Balance to the Autonomic Nervous System
If the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems fail to maintain a balanced functioning, problems such as insomnia, excessive dreaming, digestive problems, stomach pain, anxiety, constipation, palpitations, extensive forms of aches and pains as well as mental stress may surface. The Chi Machine® influences the sympathetic nervous system so it can restore the vital balance it needs to function at its best.
Exercising Internal Organs and Building “Chi”
“Chi” is a Chinese word referring to the life force or life energy, Chi increases the feeling of aliveness and well being, Chi is the permeating energy within the universe, Chi creates vitality. Western medical science is beginning to consider ancient eastern traditions. These eastern traditions emphasize healing and good health based on a life force energy, which flows in channels through all living forms. The Chi Machine aids in unblocking the “Chi” pathways and ensures a maximum flow of healing source throughout your body and organs.
How the Chi Machine helped me with my RSD / CRPS: What I noticed the most was better circulation and no more edema, relaxation of all my muscles with less spasms, improved sleep, and help in managing my stress. I also felt that its benefit of increased oxygenation was crucial to my pain relief and allowing me to exercise more by keeping my muscles looser (less lactic acid burn). The gentle back and forth movement took me a while to get used to, but once I learned to relax and go with the movement, the benefits were awesome and I look forward to using it daily.
