How It Works
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.
Research and Development
Dr. Shizuo lnoue, Chairman of Japanís Oxygen Health Association, combined his 38 years of experience and expertise in oxygenating exercise with that of leading German exercise physiologists to develop this unique, health-generating product. The machine that evolved is based on human physiology and five complementary engineering features: machine height, its speed, degree of side-to-side movement, the angle of movement, and the resulting circular movement of the body.
This scientific product has been patented in many countries, including the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Japan and Australia. It received the Silver Eagle Award at the Second Asia-Pacific Direct Selling Congress in 1993 and is registered as a medical appliance by Japanís Medical Affairs Bureau. The FDA regards it an exercise machine.
Do not use this machine under the following circumstances:
- For at least 3 months after an operation or bone fracture.
- If suffering serious infection, have a bleeding injury or heart disease.
- During pregnancy.
- Within 30 minutes after eating.
- If extreme pain occurs during use one should investigate the cause and correct the problem before resuming machine use.
Oxygenating The Body
Seventy-five trillion cells provide the body with energy to carry out brain, body and organ function, as well as movement. Cells starved for oxygen can create immune system dysfunction, cardiac symptoms, sleep and respiratory disorders, blood chemistry disturbances, intestinal problems, anxiety, depression, headaches, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, and many other imbalances.
The Oxygen Exerciser or Chi Machine maximizes oxygenation of body cells, which support deep healing. Normal vigorous exercise provides health benefits, but may also use vital oxygen and compress inter-vertebral disks. Fatigue or physical stress may result. The Oxygen Exerciser supports health without energy loss, body stress, or effort.
Because exercise with the Oxygen Exerciser is done while reclining and relaxed, with weight removed from the spine, a sense of well being and pleasure is immediate and noticeable.
A few people may feel tired or sore in parts of their body after the Chi Machine massage. This occurs as healthy circulation is being restored. If soreness occurs, reduce session time to 2-3 minutes and gradually return to 15-minute massages when soreness stops.
Dizziness may accompany initial massage sessions. Reduce the session time by half and elevate the head with a small, thin pillow. Remove the pillow during later sessions to receive full benefit. Seek medical advice if dizziness persists and discontinue use until a medical evaluation is obtained. Dizziness could suggest an inner ear or anemia problem, or high blood pressure. Nausea can indicate low blood pressure or Meniereís disease.
The Oxygen Exerciser reduces lymph stagnation and enhances removal of waste from the body. Such cleansing may cause temporary bad breath and thirst. Drink plenty of room temperature water after each session and between meals to hasten the cleansing process.
The Spineís Influence on Health
The central nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord. Branching out from the central nervous system is a network of nerves. These nerves regulate internal body processes that require no conscious awareness (e.g., heart contractions, the rate of breathing, digestion, etc.). This extended nerve network is called the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is further divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic. They provide vital balance to the body's nerve function. Any impairment to spinal alignment or abnormal spinal pressure on vertebral joints can impair the autonomic nervous system resulting in minor or major dysfunction or imbalance.
Utilization of Full Spinal Movement
Human spinal design permits lateral twisting, snake-like movement that serves to relieve vertebrae joint pressure and promotes a sense of well being. Adults rarely utilize this design feature. Consequently, there is accumulated stress and tension in the body. Watch a baby stretch and twist in its crib. This is a natural human movement that relaxes and creates energy.
When we observe animals or sea creatures we notice the serpentine movement in their walking, running or swimming motion. This helps maintain health.
When you just awaken or when you feel tired, raise your arms, stretch and yawn. In the process, flex the spinal column in a twisting, serpentine motion. This will increase alertness and energy by filling the lungs with air that causes greater oxygenation of the cells. Pressure on the inter-vertebral disks momentarily lessens and the autonomic nervous system is stimulated.
How To Use
- Wait half hour after a meal (or one hour after a large meal) before using the Chi Machine.
- Drink 4-6 oz of water prior to using the Chi Machine (Keeps the body hydrated). (Refer to A)
- Wear comfortable clothes. (Remove your shoes - be as relaxed as possible)
- Gently stretch before using Chi Machine.
- Place the Chi Machine on the floor or on an appropriate firm massage bed with the handle facing away from you. (Arrow should face you)
- Lie down and place your ankles in the ankle cup holders. The bony part of ankle should extend beyond and not hit the ankle cup holders.
- For added ankle comfort use the included footrest and ankle support. Thick socks may provide extra comfort. Make sure your ankles are comfortable.
- If you have weak knees, use a pillow under knees and legs for added support. (However knees should not bend). Try to use Chi Machine without knee support if possible to get maximum benefit.
- Alignment is very important. Lie on your back and try to be perfectly aligned to promote internal balance while using the Chi Machine. (Refer to B)
- Relax for one to two minutes before starting the machine. (Blood pressure may fluctuate from standing to lying down and resting a few minutes helps to stabilize blood pressure)
- Set the timer for three to five minutes for first time and relax. Keep eyes closed and "tune out."
- Breathe deep using abdominal muscles. Let the Chi Machine do the work. (Refer to C).
- When the machine stops, enjoy the tranquil "Chi rush!" Remain completely motionless for an additional two to three minutes, with relaxed deep breathing. (A lot of the benefit of the Chi Machine comes during this relaxation period as your oxygen depleted internal organs are replenished with oxygen).
- Before rising slowly stretch your back by turning your torso from side to side.
- Slowly turn to your side, and sit up.
- Drink 8-16 oz. of water when done. This will help flush out the released toxins with use of the Chi Machine.
Caution: Some dizziness may occur for first time users. This is healthy! Oxygen is being restored to your body's cells that may not have received proper amounts before. The initial dizziness will disappear with regular use and increased circulation. Use for shorter period next time and gradually increase time as tolerated. People with motion sickness or other serious medical problems should start with 30 seconds to 1 minute initially. May use it several times daily. *Always check with a physician before use with the Chi Machine if health issues are a concern.
A) For added benefit, drink Chi Formula 45 minutes prior to use. This will help warm up your body before use with the Chi Machine and drink HTE's Total Enzymes™ after usage. They will help break down any toxins and help purify your body's internal systems.
B) An independent supplier offers an alignment mat that ensures proper use every time called “The Align-a-Spine."
C) Use the CHI MACHINE in a relaxed environment, free from distraction and loud noise. Use the “Blending Body and Spirit” CD with Chi Machine to further help with relaxation.

"My clients all report that the Chi Machine feels great! Their total workouts are more effective with the machine. My massage staff and personal trainers have found it to be a wonderful addition to the services we provide. It helps combat vasodilatation (dizziness caused from pooling of blood in vessels) after completing a workout. We have set aside a private space in our fitness center where many clients go to ëChií after working out. They love it!"
Hans Roth, owner of FIT Health Club of Santa Rosa, CA
Chiropractor uses machine for lymphatic drainage, chronic fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivities, and immune dysfunction
"I have been using the Oxygen Exerciser 11/2 minutes one or two times a day. Amazingly, during this time my lymphatic drainage has improved with no other treatment. This is truly remarkable! Needless to say, I have been thinking and feeling better."
John M. Buckler, D.C., Sacramento, CA
Pain for 20 years, back broken three times, lower back fusion, disk removal with complications, anxiety, and insomnia
"The relaxation derived from the Oxygen Exerciser has been phenomenal! Waking up and getting on the machine every morning is the best. I also use it to alleviate pain. The gentle oscillation opens my pinched nerve channels and realigns my body by relaxing cramped muscles. I have less pain, better sleep, and a better attitude."
Christopher Jepsen, Santa Rosa, CA
Accident injury four years ago, six weeks in a coma, brain damage, paralysis. After using the oxygenator there were improvements in sensation, balance, speech, cognition, circulation, and attitude. His parents write:
"We put him on the machine for two minutes, then put him on for another five minutes. When the machine shut off, Jeffrey had a BIG SMILE on his face and said ëWow!í After using the Chi Machine for only three weeks, he is walking forward better and is able to walk backwards in a figure eight or circle with no problems or assistance. His doctors said this would be impossible. He is moving his legs and arms better, too. A deep purple discoloration from his toes almost to his knee, from poor circulation, has completely disappeared."
Larry, Martha and Jeffrey Wolff, Sacramento, CA
Weight loss and more energy
"My wife has lost a tremendous amount of weight. The machine has completely toned her stomach and given her lots of energy. Her varicose veins are disappearing, and so are her aches and pains. My asthma has been helped significantly. I have not had to use my inhaler at all."
Larry and Martha Wolff, Sacramento, CA

Steve from Lakewood Colorado:
For 9 years now I have suffered from loss of sensation or feeling in my feet. I have been using the CHI MACHINE twice daily for 15 minutes. I am beginning to get feeling back in my feet. I swim a lot and do other exercises but this machine has really helped my feet. I also put my arms overhead during one of the sessions and felt a release of tension in the shoulders.
T from Golden, Colorado:
I have had a CHI MACHINE for almost 3 weeks. I use it 2 times a day, at least 10 minutes each time. For 25 years I have suffered from lower lumbar, shoulder and neck stiffness. My muscles, ligaments and tendons are continuously sore. That condition has diminished significantly. I notice more stamina and I sleep more soundly. There has been a noticeable change in my left shoulder rotation-more flexibility. I also do Jin Shin Shitsu. When a client uses the machine before a treatment, the pulses or energy flows seem to come up faster.
A. from Golden, Colorado:
Since I have been using the CHI MACHINE , I have noticed more stamina.
Donna from Lakewood, Colorado:
I have been using my CHI MACHINE from a month. The use of it has helped me to have more strength, clarity of thought and more muscle mobility as well as better circulation throughout my whole body.
Emily from Denver, Colorado:
CHI MACHINE arrived August 24th. I have used it 2 or 3 times a day for five minutes. On September 18,1998. I changed to 2 times a day for 15 minutes each time--morning and evening. After the first use of the CHI MACHINE, the constant pain in my right shoulder blade left. The pain was the result of an automobile accident four (4) years ago.
Since the machine has arrived, I've had two headaches that were manageable. In the past I have been in bed for several days a month with migraines.
Erich from Colorado:
I am over 60 years young. I use the CHI MACHINE 8 to 10 minutes twice a day.
I have relief from the pain and stiffness of arthritis, bad knees, legs, ankles and back.
Maureen from Wheat Ridge, Colorado:
Prior to using the CHI MACHINE I was feeling a great deal of anxiety due to many personal issues in my life. One in particular was the fact that I was burnt out, physically worn out as a massage therapist. I had been experiencing a great shoulder and joint pain for almost one year. I was being treated with acupuncture for these ailments. Acupuncture was helping, but I was still having the pain because I was still doing massage.
On Monday, August 10,1998,1 was actually considering selling my massage business. Then on Tuesday I went to try the CHI MACHINE. My first reaction was one of total relaxation. I remember my impression was that I felt like I had just had a massage. I felt what I call "Ia-la'd". Later that day I realized that my anxiety was almost nonexistent. I felt like my old self again after several months of feeling awful. Later that evening when I was doing a massage I could not believe the stamina and enjoyment I had again. I knew at that time that I had to buy my own CHI MACHINE.
Although I experience my anxiety returning each day (mostly because I was trying to quit smoking), a tranquil feeling always returned after each CHI session.
