Neuropathy
I am a Neurodevelopmental Therapist who works with children labeled as ADHD, Dyslexic, Autistic or with any serious learning problem.  When I was first shown The Chi Machine, I didn't make the connection with its possible use in neural systems therapy.  Over time, however, I did decide to try The Chi Machine on some of my patients.  There were excellent results in combination with therapy: A girl went from crawling to climbing upstairs to walking a boy started speaking more clearly; many others were calm and focused.  The workout of these subsystems in a passive enjoyable way makes it more likely that students will adhere to the therapy.

In late 1996, I was a 57-year-old obese male with non-insulin dependant diabetes, high blood pressure and I noticed that I was slowly losing feeling in my right foot.

In early 1997, my podiatrist diagnosed my condition as neuropathy.  The office test consisted of having the podiatrist touch seven points on the bottom of my foot.  I could only detect three of these contacts.  I knew that I would have to start doing something as I figured that at age 57 I was too young to have such a condition.  Moreover, I was one who despised exercise of any type.  I justified some of this dislike to the spurs, which I was developing on both of my feet.  In retrospect, it seems providential that by coincidence I went with my wife to visit a friend who happened to be a distributor of The Chi Machine.  I didn't say anything about the neuropathy but as a good salesman he introduced me to the machine and provided me with the literature and the audiotape.  After listening to the tape several times and reading the literature I 4-cided to try the machine.
I used the machine every morning before going to work and every evening before going to sleep.  I find both of these 15-minute periods as highlights of relaxation in each of my days.  The machine travels with me on vacations and there have been very few days on which I have not used the machine.

In November of 1997, I asked the podiatrist to recheck my neuropathy.  Upon feeling all seven contacts the podiatrist sent me in for a nerve condition study.  The results of that study provided a diagnosis of a "barely perceptible neuropathy” attributed to my diabetic condition.  I considered this a tremendous improvement, which I can only attribute to the use of The Chi Machine.

I will continue to use it daily for the rest of my life with the hope that I can for the first time in my life lose more than eleven pounds of weight and hopefully eventually overcome my diabetes.
