Rebounding involves jumping on a rebounder, which is very similar to a mini-trampoline, but designed specifically for exercise. Repeatedly jumping up and down for 5-10 minutes at a time, at least 5-6 times per day improves both blood and lymph circulation, thereby strengthening the immune system.
Our lymph systems provide nutrients to our cells while removing toxins and other waste products. However, lymph system circulation is totally dependent on physical exercise. Lymph fluid travels through vessels that run up the legs, up the arms and up the torso. These vessels are filled with one-way valves, so the lymph fluid always moves in the same direction. The vertical up-and-down movement of rebounding effectively pumps the lymph through these vertical vessels, increasing lymph flow by 15-30 times.
Additional benefits of rebounding include: stronger cells, improved cardiovascular function, stronger immune system, better balance, greater physical strength, flexibility and muscular development.
As with any type of full wellness support, it is important to fully research and form your own opinion on utilizing a rebounder in partnership with a qualified healthcare professional.
