One of our favorite Chi machines is the Chi Vitalizer. This is an 18-pound product whose manufacturers claim is able to effectively stimulate your sympathetic nervous system, vertebrae, spinal column to help provide pain relief associated with muscle, back and neuralgia issues.
As well, they claim that it has the ability to oxygenate your cells, helping to induce cell repair, rejuvenate your energy levels, help your body to release accumulated toxins, boost your ability to stave off dangerous infections, help to repair cells that are damaged as well as improve the efficiency of your metabolism.
The manufacturers say that in order to get started you should begin using it at a slow speed for short periods of time. After several sessions, as you monitor the results you receive, you can begin increasing the time as well as the speed, all at your own discretion.
Another Chi Vitalizer buyer said that after careful research he ended up buying the Chi Vitalizer because it seemed the best value in comparison to the other options on the market. He told us that the ankle grips have quality padding, which he describes as essential, but you can always supplement with a towel if you need a little bit more cushioning. He was able to easily incorporate the Chi machine into his life because it only takes 10 to 15 minutes in his experience to feel pain relief from it.
Another reviewer we interviewed said that initially they were skeptical and suspicious of these Chi machines, but eventually they committed to making the purchase. They began using it for 10 minutes a day and quickly noticed that they were experiencing improved circulation and vitality in their day to day lives. They also said that they didn't need to rest or catnap as frequently as they used to, feeling an energetic infusion that reduced issues of chronic stress and tension.

The Swing Master Chi machine was another option we examined- it ships with a wired remote control, includes variable massage speeds, an automatic shut-off 15-minute timer, and vinyl ankle cradles.
Its manufacturers say that the swinging motion it provides powerfully improves user blood circulation, helps to tone the body through passive exercise, improves stress conditions and in general, promotes a sense of overall well-being.
One buyer we interviewed wondered whether Chi machines work and decided ultimately to purchase one because they had terrible lower back pain in addition to sinus congestion issues.
They had been spending a small fortune undergoing expensive massages and figured that if they could find a cheaper alternative that it would make sense to at least experiment with it. After having used it for one week, this user says that they experienced significant reductions in sinus congestion, back pain, and ankle water retention inflammation.
Another buyer we spoke with was an elderly man suffering from multiple sclerosis. Because of ankle pain issues were unable to exercise much and they purchased this particular chi machine to provide a form of passive exercise to help with blood circulation issues. After several uses, they were surprised at the positive effects, saying that ankle swelling had dramatically reduced, having reduced to extremely low levels.
As well, this user says they experienced significant increases in stamina and energy, all of which they thought they were imagining, on account of the placebo effect, but the effects were real.
They now have much more energy to do what needs to be done over the course of the day, which was a real surprise. In terms of how this particular user employs his own Chi machine, he says that in the beginning he used it at very low speeds for short periods of time, but over the course of a couple of weeks began gradually increasing it until they are almost at the highest speed, for 15 minutes, per session.
The Sunpentown Chi Machine was another option we examined. It has 14 different speed adjustments, providing 95 to 175 rpm, includes a wired remote control and features auto time programs for simple interventions.
Its manufacturers say that the machine is great for providing simple passive aerobic exercises that don't put any stress on your body. All you have to do is lie down, place your ankles in the cradles, and the gentle rocking motion will produce the proper chi balance in your body.
They go on to say, that Chi describes the balance of the night negative and positive forms in your body.
Regularly using their machine and its relaxing movement massage helps to stimulate your person, providing stress and relaxation benefits that have both short and long-term positives. One buyer that we spoke with said that they experienced benefits using it to treat fibromyalgia, diabetes as well as improving metabolism, but they thought the price was a little bit expensive.
This 65+ senior citizen describes the effect as gentle and relaxing, and that they were able to feel all of the positive effects in their head from their ankles.
The timers and intensity settings allow you to customize the effects to your needs, with this user advising that you begin slowly and work up to higher speed and time settings as you become more experienced. Another buyer says that the effect is pleasantly strange- it produces feelings of relaxation and invigoration simultaneously, all done passively, which is a necessity for individuals suffering from mobility impairments.
One reviewer who actually loves machine, says that the padding is useless for her, so she advises supplementing it with some extra cushioning to make it a positive experience.
Another piece of advice she supplies was that after the Chi machine stops working, lay in it for a while and there will be 2 to 3 minutes of tingling that she says is the oxygen rushing throughout your system. As well, performing some basic stretches after using a Chi machine can provide a great benefit. You can watch some YouTube videos to figure out some stretches you can do in the prone position as you are in the finished state of the Chi intervention.
