What is the Chi Balancer?

The Chi Balancer is a machine that creates a swinging motion that closely resembles a gold fish swimming. Guests lie comfortably on the floor and place their feet into the Chi Balancer.  The swimming, oscillating motion maximizes the movement of all body cells, supporting deep relief. Traditional forms of vigorous exercise provide health benefits, but most CONSUME vital oxygen and compress intervertebral disks and can make you feel tired. The Chi Machine supports your body’s health without creating an energy loss, undue stress to the body, or that ‘over-worked’ feeling.

Bring your body back into balance with our relaxing therapeutic treatment that oxygenates, tones and strengthens your body. The simple motion created by our unique Chi Machine increases feelings of energy, aliveness and well-being while it stimulates your lymphatic system and balances your spine.

The idea behind this unusual aerobic exerciser was suggested by Dr. Shizuo Inoue, Chairman of Japan’s Oxygen Health Association. Dr. Inoue, who has spent decades researching the relationship between oxygen levels in the body and the quality of human health, got his idea by watching goldfish swimming. Noting how remarkably healthy and well-toned fish are, Dr. Inoue thought that perhaps the steady undulation of the spine causes the fish’s whole body to be exercised and oxygenated.

What would be the effect on people, he wondered. If we could move like fish?

Engineers took his basic concept and designed the Chi Machine®. “The pattern of motion the machine generates in the human body uses minimum effort and achieves maximum results,” says Dr. Inoue. “It improves the basic metabolism of the body, increases our energy, adds flexibility to our lives and improves our attitude. It can also increase our sense of awareness, balancing the mind/body connection.”
