If you’ve never tried a session on a chi machine, I’m not sure I can explain just how it makes you feel, but amazing comes to mind! A passive aerobic experience with a myriad of benefits, the chi machine gently cradles your ankles and swings to and fro while you relax, lying on your back. This creates a side to side movement that travels up from your feet to your head. The results of this gentle wave like motion are felt in as little as 10-15 minutes. Loosening tight back muscles, alleviating constipation and menstrual pain, and stimulating metabolism are just a few of the reported benefits. In my practice I use it mostly to increase the lymphatic circulation as part of a protocol to reduce swelling in the legs and ankles. Great for pregnant mamas, and those with swelling issues. Also used in tandem with garshanna and far infrared sauna to encourage a detoxification. It can also be added to the end of any session. Although incredible effective it is also quite fun! As one of the the main benefits is increased energy and oxygenation to cells, when your session is over you are flooded with the sensation of this new influx, which feels quite like your whole body is made of stardust.
