The thing is awesome. A vibration gets induced as tension chains running up the spinal musculature dissolve.
Everyone wants to sit on it. The best reaction was “This is odd!”March 28, 2006 at 8:25 pm #12004
You weren’t supposed to give away the secret…..but I don’t suppose it will hurt sales.
Seriously, this chair is so creative that I will have to leave it posted for posterity. I suspect it was designed by a genius hybrid between Rube Goldberg and Woody Allen.
Perhaps some future Taoist sexologist will find a useful way to incorporate it into their office practice….
perhaps to stimulate the meridian pulses of their patients? Its biggest market would seem to be amongst women or gays seeking a little excess yang…..

This is my 3rd or 4th day. Here is my analysis.
Chair is the best chair I have ever sat on. My co-workers all have $700 ergo chairs and their backs are total shit. Hmmm… just like glasses make your eyes weaker…
Anyway, the first few hours were easy, but every day around 2:30 my back starts to tire. So I stick it out like I was suffering in a lotus position, and guees what? Each day it is less and I loosen up more and more.
Michael Winn wasn’t bullshitting–it gently coaxes the kundalini up. Much like using an aneros device, a subtle vibration gets generated and the chi comes up. Your body, suspended on the ball, will move as the chi comes up. This subtle effect exposes where your tension is. In my case it is behind my liver/kindeys and heart.
But the vibration wave runs up and down and breaks shit up. I can only imagine in a few months.
Nobody wants to sit on it. They call me faggot, and ask me if I like sitting on my egg. I remind them of that Dr. Zeuss elephant who sat on a bird’s egg and produced magic.
What a great investment. I sit 8 hours a day and that is 8 hours of free training.March 30, 2006 at 11:06 pm #12008March 31, 2006 at 6:17 am #12010

That is TOO FUNNY. where in sam hell do you work anyways?March 31, 2006 at 10:36 am #12012
I just unscrewed back and arm support from office chair.
Easier to target the sitting action. And no balls consideration when on front edge.
Sitting on usual position or front edge.
Same practice. Hard core. One starts to resonate with Indians who don’t use back support and consider whites as back whimps.
Still had to use chair with back support for sitting after the 8h period. Or I would exhaust the kidneys. But with time one strenghtens.March 31, 2006 at 2:13 pm #12014
Have you ever sat on a big yoga ball and how’s it compare?
Also, when I sat on one of those chairs a few years ago (not Winn’s chair but one that looks a lot like it — and cost 3 times as much) it pressed my perenium a lot, which I felt kind of blocked energy. Have you encountered anything like this?
Thanks.March 31, 2006 at 5:38 pm #12016
I sat on a big yoga ball and it is less stable I guess?
Winn’s chair doesn’t press the perinuem at all. Maybe if I were to inflate it really to the max it would press, but I inflate it to the degree that it feels like a waterbed for my ass.

I work for a television network. People around here aren’t very PC. 🙂June 2, 2006 at 3:49 am #12020
I’m not seeing the tai chi chair listed with the products on this site. Where do you buy it, and how much does it cost?June 2, 2006 at 3:51 am #12022
