Anita's Healthy Tips

Rebounding, or gently bouncing on a Rebounder, similar to a "mini trampoline", is a great form of gentle exercise.

Rebounding is great for the lymphatic system and helps move toxins out of the body. The lymphatic system runs next to the circulatory system. The circulatory system has a pump to pump blood through but the lymphatic system does not have a pump. The lymphatic system is like the “garbage can” of the blood and takes toxins out of the bloodstream.

Why do we need to move more?

For health and our well-being, we are told to exercise for about 30 minutes a day. Exercise helps the lymphatic system move out the toxins so they are not reabsorbed back into the body.  The type of up and down, vertical motion done on a rebounder is especially helpful for lymphatic drainage. It only needs to be done for a few minutes a day and is a good thing to add to your exercise regimen.

In this video I will demonstrate the motion and you can see for yourself how easy it is to exercise on a rebounder.
