Health is found in balance and moderation. You need to exercise, but exercise that is too strenuous for you can lead to injury and
severe fatigue. Exercise must be balanced by rest, but if you are too inactive your body becomes weak. You need to eat, but eating too much
isn’t healthy and leads to diseases associated with obesity. And if you don’t eat enough, you will become malnourished, weaken, and develop
other health problems.
Unfortunately, people in Western society are prone to excess and its corresponding imbalances. Some adopt extreme diets and think that
everyone else should as well. Many seem to live by the maxim, “if a little is good, more is better.”
Our tendency to excess is made worse by Western medicine which often treats various organs or systems as if they were disconnected from the rest of the body and that our body is a machine that can be fixed without regard to a person’s mental and emotional state. We are not separate parts we are whole. Holistic healing looks at all the factors and recognizes patterns of imbalance, excess, and deficiency.

Traditional Chinese Medicine and the SOQI Products
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used successfully for thousands of years to prevent and treat diseases. Its basic belief is that
“chi or qi” is the body’s vital energy source that flows along the channels or meridians in the body. This vital energy is what keeps our spirits
up, our emotions, mental and physical health in balance. When this energy becomes blocked, weak or excessive disease, emotional and physical health problems occur. That is why TCM focuses on restoring the body’s energy flow bringing back balance. TCM uses herbs, acupuncture, diet, meditation, exercise, and massage. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been a basic health care system for the past 2,000 years and differs from Western medicine because it focuses on the whole body and not just symptoms or disease.
The SOQI Wellness Products focus on bringing balance and energy flow back to the body creating health and wellness. The SOQI Products utilize
movement, electrical, and heat energy to influence the body’s flow of energy through its meridians or pathways. The four main SOQI Products include the Chi Machine, Electro Reflex Energizer, Ceramic FIR Dome, and E-Power Machine.
Each machine offers similar yet different benefits.
- The Chi Machine provides a figure 8 movement which helps to promote overall circulation, lymphatic movement, and temporarily relieve muscular aches and pains. I always said its benefits are very much like a massage. Its rhythmic movement also promotes relaxation allowing your lungs to take in more oxygen through deeper breaths. It also allows your spine to relax, opening up your vertebrae giving it the ability to self-align.
- The Electro Reflex Energizer promotes uses low-frequency electrical stimulation to stimulate the acupressure points in the bottom of your feet. These massaging actions help to promote overall circulation and the proper flow of chi throughout all the organ systems in the body. Remember, promoting balance according to TCM can help improve function.
- The SOQI Ceramic FIR Dome uses far-infrared heat to promote the flow of chi. When you apply heat to an area you increase the blood flow to that area which brings along with it food and oxygen. Heat also helps to relieve pain and inflammation, joint stiffness, and muscle spasms.
- The E-Power Machine uses negative potential energy, high frequency with low voltage to help balance all the main systems of the body. Remember we are electrical beings comprised of trillions of cells each having its own energy source. Using the E-Power as an exterior energy source similar to our own helps create a balanced flow throughout the meridians.
