Rebounding is a fun way to burn a few calories, get your child’s play in and stimulate your lymphatic system!
The Health Benefits of Rebounding:
- First off, Rebounding is fun!
- Why I do it … Boosts lymphatic drainage and immune function.
- Great for skeletal system and increasing bone mass.
- Helps improve digestion.
- More than twice as effective as running without the extra stress on the ankles and knees.
- Helps improve the effects of other exercise- one study found that those who rebounded for 30 seconds between weight lifting sets saw 25% more improvement after 12 weeks than those who did not.
- Increases endurance on a cellular level by stimulating mitochondrial production (these are responsible for cell energy).
- Helps improve balance by stimulating the vestibule in the middle ear.
- Rebounding helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy.
- Rebounding in a whole body exercise that improves muscle tone throughout the body.
- Some sources online claim that the motion of rebounding could help support the thyroid and adrenals.
How To Do It (there’s a technique):
It is best to start with feet on the rebounder and only gentle bounces, as opposed to high jumps. Short, soft landing jumps is the trick. 3-5 minutes a day, twice daily, is all you need to reap the benefits. Keep it in a place where you’re going to see it. Take turns with your kids.
The action of rebounding makes use of the increased G-force from gravity based exercises like this and each cell in the body has to respond to the acceleration and deceleration. The up and down motion is beneficial for the lymphatic system since it runs in a vertical direction in the body.
Another study showed that the increased G-force helped increase Lymphocyte activity. The lymph system transports immune cells throughout the body and supports immune function. For this reason, rebounding is often suggested as a detoxifying and immune boosting activity.
After my cancer scare in 2015, I began researching anything having to do with detoxing, cleansing and healing the body (it has to be done in this order to work).
I’m a firm believer that the body is capable of healing, if you believe it can and do the necessary actions.
