Senior Citizen Chi Machine® Testimonials
1. Mom’s story (at age 88)
(see further below for updates at age 100 and beyond)
I am a senior citizen, and I just turned 88 this month. I first tried the Chi Machine® about a month and a half ago. When I first was invited to use the Chi Machine®, I was a little doubtful about all the things I had heard it might do, but now I believe that it has really helped me in many ways. I am very happy with it, and I have been using it twice a day, working slowly up to about 5 minutes each time.
When I first started using the Chi Machine®, my legs were stiff but now they seem much more flexible. I feel like the Chi Machine® has really helped my legs and it’s also helped my back, neck and circulation. I feel very comfortable using it and I am really happy with it. I have arthritis in my feet and since I have been using the Chi Machine® my feet have been much better. I feel that the Chi Machine® has helped because it makes bowel movements easier and more normal.
I have osteoporosis and scoliosis, and my neck has been cocked far to the side for many years. After using the Chi Machine®, my back seemed to be much better, and my neck appeared much straighter in my mirror. My son told me my neck seemed a little straighter. Later, a lady who often sits behind me in church, and who did not even know I have a Chi Machine®, remarked that my back and neck seemed much straighter than they had looked in the past. I am convinced that the Chi Machine® is helping my back and neck and spine.
The very first time I used it, my ankles and legs became more flexible. They did not seem quite as heavy as they usually did. The more I have used it, the more flexible they have become. And it is now much easier for me to walk. Before I used the machine, I would sometimes need to get up on a chair to get something out of the closet. I would get one foot up with difficulty, and then struggle to try to get my second foot up, but after using the Chi Machine® several times, I could almost hop up on the chair, putting my first foot up there and then bringing the other foot up easily. In the beginning, when I would have to get up from the ground after using the Chi Machine®, it was very difficult for me to do so. After only a few days, this became much easier when I first started.
I have gotten all these benefits from using the Chi Machine® for only 4 or 5 minutes, or less, twice each day, for about a month and a half. At first, I was not too eager to try the Chi Machine® at all, but I finally did so after learning that it was a Class 1 Medical Device. I am so glad now that I have my Chi Machine®.
