Shoes felt looser 34%, higher energy levels 10%, greater
flexibility 12%, more relaxed 24%, feeling of well being 16%, reduced
abdominal congestion 7%, and improved shape of limb 26%.
The intent of this summary sheet is not to present a detailed
statistical analysis of the outcomes of the trial but to give you a feeling
of the very positive effects of the Original Sun Ancon Chi Machine. Over the 3-week treatment period there
was a significant loss of fluid from the affected leg with an associated
improvement in how the legs felt.
Once patients ceased treatment there was some return of fluid and
symptoms but not to the level prior to treatment indicating a longer-term
treatment effect. With the loss of
fluid there were improvements in patients’ Quality of Life and ability to undertake
activities of living. This included
an improvement in their leg range of movement that made exercise, walking
up and down stairs and getting dressed in the morning a lot easier.
There were also other benefits associated with the use of the
Chi Machine, some patients reported that they found it relaxing and felt it
improved their energy levels and well-being. The majority of patients were extremely
happy with using it in their own home at their convenience and felt that
this gave them control over their condition. Results show the impact of the Chi
Machine is rapid even for these chronic conditions which generally had not
responded well to previous treatments.
They also show a post treatment effect. The Chi Machine however, needs to be used
daily to gain the best results. Many
other parameters were measured including blood flow, lymphatic transport
capacity and immune system function.
These and other relevant outcomes will be presented in the
discussion of the research and linked to the optimal use of the Chi
Machine. Full details of these
findings will be submitted for publications in a learned International
journal and will be presented in full at the forthcoming International
Congress of Lymphology in Genoa Italy and at the
World Phebology Congress in Rome.
