  • Chi exercise machines are a type of passive exerciser that originated in Japan. They are based on the accepted principle utilized in several Japanese therapies that swinging the feet while a person is lying down creates a harmonic response of sideways motion up through their body. This oscillation of the hips, which generates a gentle but dynamic wave that travels up through the spine, stimulates the nervous system, balances energy levels and releases tension.

  • The idea of using a machine to generate the sideways oscillation was conceived in Japan the late 1980's. The original machine was recognised as a remedial medical device by the Japanese government. It was first marketed in America as the Chi Machine. This gave rise to the generic term "chi machine", which has become the common way of referring to all products of this type in the West. Later the Sun Ancon's owners registered a US trade mark - The Chi Machine® (see below*).

    Chi exercise machines provide a form of passive exercise that stimulates the nervous system, mobilises the back and releases tension. Invented in Japan about 20 years ago, the initial design was intended to accommodate use in the home. I came across this original machine - the Sun Ancon® Chi Machine® - about 8 years ago, and was fascinated by the dynamic effect of the simple sideways movement. I purchased a Sun Ancon for personal use, and have used it regularly over the years, partly as a very pleasant antidote to the many hours I spend as a writer in front of a computer screen.
