Welcome to Japanese and Asian things as commodities because of the related images they conjure. The "effects" of this already questionable machine are... questionable. Coming at no surprise, Asia and Japan are immediately and inextricably linked with Chi and Zen, therefore making legitimate claims such as the latter. The moral is rather simple: if it's a commodity to be sold and it's "Zen" or "Chi", it's not Zen or Chi.
