WHAT IS THE CHI MACHINE?

The Chi Machine is a passive aerobic exercise device, developed and first manufactured in Japan by Skylite Industry company president and engineer, Keiichi Ohashi, in 1988. The Chi Machine was granted a patent by the Japanese Patent Office December 18, 1990. The machine was originally known as Sun Harmony and later changed to Sun Ancon.

The concept for the original Sun Ancon Chi Machine device came from Japanese scientist Shizuo Inoue, Chairman of Japan's Oxygen Health Association, who studied the effects of oxygenation of the body for 38 years and believed that lack of oxygen in the body is a primary cause of disease.

INFRARED SAUNA

BENEFITS

  • detoxification

  • relieves tension & lowers cortisol levels (the stress hormone)

  • increases circulation in the body

  • relaxes your muscles

  • weight loss

  • helps to purify the skin

WHAT IS A FAR INFRARED SAUNA?

In a far-infrared sauna, the heat waves penetrate the body to effectively heat the body and raise the body core temperature. A traditional sauna employs large amounts of heated steam, which creates a humid experience. Infrared saunas do not use steam and rely fully on the heat from the infrared heaters for overall effects.

VIBE PLATE

BENEFITS

  • strengthens and tones muscles

  • builds stronger bones

  • improves flexibility, balance & coordination

WHAT IS A VIBE MACHINE?

Power-Plate is a machine that gives the body's muscles a high-speed workout by using vibrations to stimulate them to contract and relax. They generally contract once or twice a second, but by standing on the Power-Plate, its vibrations cause an automatic reflex muscle contraction of 30-50 a second.

UVB LIGHT BED

UVB

+ makes your skin produce more melanin that works like your natural sun-protection

+ Make a tan gradually darker and more natural (delayed pigmentation)

+ Makes a tan last longer

+ Makes your body make vitamin D

+ IARC (the International Agency for Research on Cancer) has concluded that regular and moderate sun-exposure reduces the risk of melanoma.

– Overexposure will burn your skin and increase the risk for skin-cancer

UVA

+ Oxidizes the melanin into a darker colour which adds to the natural sun-protection

+ Will create a fast and dark tan for tanners with existing melanin (immediate pigmentation of skin-type 3 and darker)

– A UVA-tan only disappears quickly

– Does NOT make your body make vitamin D

– Increases the photo-damage to your skin (photo-aging)

– Exposure mainly to UVA does not mean any reduced risk for skin-cancer.

It is important to do your own research and see if tanning is right for you.
