This is the page where we basically say that while Chi-Plates are good, you use them at your own risk much as you park your car at your own risk etc... We do this simply because no one can cover everything in life, and we do not know every person's situation. Hence self-responsibilty, and by using the Chi-Plates you agree to accept any consquences of use.
Chi-Plates are a simple tool for the promotion of comfort and relaxation and makes no claims explicitly or implicitly to treat any medical condition.
Disclaimer: There are Government (TGA, FDA) restrictions on what we can say, report or claim as an effect of the use of Chi-Plates as a device for the treatment of any condition other than a general "treatment of discomfort" and or "relaxation" statement. This doesn't change what Chi-Plates can do; it changes what we can say about what we can do. All references to clinical effects other than simple alleviation of discomfort and the promotion of comfot refer to life force effects not the effects of Chi-Plates themselves.
In these days even commonsense can at times be a rare commodity. It would be nice not to have to add to this section but here it is to cover the outliers and remote chances that inevitably occur for any process in any statistical process over a long time.
The devices sold and marketed as Chi-Plates do not replace or intent to replace medical advice.
If in doubt or if you feel adverse effects or uncomfortable, discontinue use and consult your health care professional.
Basically we believe that Chi-Plates are a good thing and don’t have any reason to believe otherwise. The unknown, the new and the unforeseen is always possible, so we simply say: Acceptance of risk is implied through the use of Chi-Plates.
Summary: The manufacturers believe that Chi-Plates have many benefits they would like to share with others. To the best of our knowledge Chi-Plates are a safe and benign relaxation tool. However one has to acknowledge that all things in life contain unknowns and hence unpredictable factors.
The manufacturer offers this product in good faith because it has been empirically and anecdotally found to be useful and beneficial for people. Because Chi-Plates do not claim to be therapeutic devices they have not been tested in formal clinical trials other than a few minor tests see: http://www.gene5.com/study.htm . In all things there are the odd one in a 100,000 chances that occur, and all things in life have two sides to them. If this represents an unacceptable risk to you please do not purchase this product or return the product citing the above as your 'reason' for return. NB: Please return the product (undamaged in original packing) for a refund according to the refund conditions. By using this device you agree to do so at your own risk and to take full responsibility. You indemnify the manufacturer, designer and his agents against all claims, directly or indirectly arising through the use of the product.
+ every technique no matter how benign entails some 'risks'.
+ every new action in life entails some risk however infinitesimally small.
+ It is not possible to test and know all possible contingencies. We regularly accept many risks without fully knowing every possible contingency e.g. Gene food, and the effects of residual herbicides, hormones, and antibiotics in our food. Please note: accepting a risk means that while 99,999+ times there is no problem and you are happy if a problem does occurr you do not seek to blame or seek reconpense from anyone else for it. This is the definiton of 'acceptance of risk' used here.
These warnings were not given because of any adverse effects reported to date, but simply to cover legalities.
The bottom line: While we believe there are no unreasonable risks in using Chi-Plates (Biocircuits..etc..) and recommend them: you do so at your own risk, much as you park a car at your own risk etc... .
Please see the warnings page for related information.
