had tortured me for twenty years, and I was a man almost forgotten and
deserted by the community. Since twenty years ago, I gradually felt fatigued
and weary, but I did not know what the cause was. There were tension and
pain, and later the disease progressed into general muscular cramp. It
happened frequently, sometimes over ten times daily. More and more symptoms
occurred, such as headache, insomnia, loss of appetite and weight, getting
thinner and emaciated. There would be severe pain after walking ten or
more minutes. I could not sit or stand for half an hour.
lost my working ability, and my family members separated from me. I lived
on social welfare, and had a very hard time. Year in and year out I made
inquiries about medicine and drugs. I had visited doctors of western medicine
as well as Chinese traditional medicine. The money spent on acupuncture,
moxibustion and massage was over several thousand dollars. At first, I
could pay through the help from my brothers and sisters, but later I had
no more support from them and could not afford to pay the doctor. Every
one has his/her family and burden. How could one have excess money to
financially aid for a long time for someone else? When the symptoms broke
out, I could do nothing but endure with dogged will and hold out with
all my might.
had a family, a very happy and joyful one. As the disease failed to respond
to any medical treatment, there was no hope for recovery. Unemployment
and poverty made every one go away. I lived in the empty home lonely.
I was powerless and helpless, without any saving.
chance, three weeks ago I met a friend named Amy. She recognized my desperate
situation, and recommended me to visit a doctor. She has high regards
for the doctor.
mid-August, I made a big physical effort to get to China Town. In front
of Room 208, No. 238b Canal Street, I saw a plain and ordinary clinic.
Was it such that a sleeping dragon or a hidden tiger was waiting to be
discovered? Dr. Li Yong Ping was the one I sought. Yong (yongyuan in Chinese
means forever or always,) Ping (Pingan in Chinese means peace,) meant
11 always peaceful." The name indicated good wish and blessing. I hoped
so. With a prayer, I entered the clinic.
Li listened carefully about my chief complaints, occasionally raised some
questions. After a general examination, he said, "at present, massage
is not applicable to your disease." I was puzzled and did not understand
what he meant. Was my disease too serious to be cured, or was he afraid
that I could not afford the huge expense for treatment? It seemed that
he sensed what I thought. He explained, "it is not that I'm not willing
to treat you by massage. For in your case, massage will take 1-2 months
to have effect, and you'll need to spend a lot of money. Currently, the
best choice IS to use the Chi Machine Aerobic Exerciser."

the desired result, was it possible that the Chi Machine could do the
Li said, "the use Of the Chi Machine Aerobic Exerciser produces rhythmical
vibration. You are lying down to do the exercise, so there is no pressure
at all. It brings about the beneficial effect of general massage. It relaxes
the nerves and muscles. The tension and cramp will disappear. Pain and
ache will be reduced. Such vibrating exercise will accelerate the general
blood circulation, increase metabolism, improve your general functional
well being and regulate the function of your nervous system. If you persist
for a certain period of time, your health will be recovered." The detailed
explanation and sincere talk of Dr. Li made me believe lie was different
from the ordinary. He is trustworthy. But how could I get five hundred
dollars to buy a Chi Machine Aerobic Exerciser? I told Dr. Li my financial
may come here to use the Chi Machine Aerobic Exerciser daily, twice or
three times daily, free of charge." I did not believe what I heard. When
Dr. Li repeated again, 'free of charge for one month's use," now, I was
certain that was true!
day I went to Dr. Li's clinic, and used the Chi Machine Aerobic Exerciser
twice daily. It is now the Twelfth Day. The pain and ache of my whole
body basically have disappeared, and no more cramp in my muscles. I can
walk for half an hour without any pain, and have a good sleep. Every morning
when I wake up, I feel good. What a blessing and how wonderful it is!
want to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Li. The Chi Machine Aerobic
Exerciser has saved me!
