Would the chi machine cause problems on a person with hip problems or hip replacement?

That's a very general question. 'Hip Problems' could be anything from a stiff hip to a compound fracture. In general, the answer is that it is extremely unlikely that the Chi Machine could have any adverse effects. Of course the answer has to be general since I don't know what exactly a particular person's situation is. For example, if someone had a hip replacement last week, then I would not do the Chi Machine. So there will always need to be a case-by-case assessment. 

In the vast majority of cases the Chi Machine will be very beneficial for most hip problems. It is a gentle technique with no pressure and no stretching. That's about as harmless as it can get. However you will always have to judge the situation on a case-by-case basis. It is not possible to make a blanket statement from long distance which covers all possibilities.
