Benefits of Rebounding
1. Lymphatic drainage:
Aids in venous blood flow allowing our lymphatic system (where our toxins are stored) to flow better, therefore detoxifies better which improves the immune system.
2. Stress reduction:
Light bouncing can help increase blood flow to underused muscles and loosen and release overused ones, plus it helps the body release endorphins which are your brain’s natural calming, feel good aid.
Improves proprioception (ability to sense the orientation and position of your body) which aids in fall/injury reduction. It also stimulates the vestibule in the middle ear to improve balance.
4. Strengthen pelvic floor muscles:
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that effectively form a hammock across the base of your pelvis and support the internal organs above it. Having strong and flexible pelvic floor muscles helps control the bladder, stabilize the hip joints, and connect to the deep core.
5. Improve bone strength:
Rebounding produces up to 2-3x vertical gravitation, which can serve as strengthening resistance for our bones, plus it’s low impact so it’s much easier on our joints, vertebrae and cartilage. It also increases red-cell production activity of the bone marrow (raising oxygen-delivery capacity).
6. Increases heart health/cardio endurance: Strengthens the heart and other muscles, causing them to work with greater efficiency as well as improves endurance on a cellular level by stimulating mitochondrial production (responsible for cell energy) as well as aids in cellular detoxification
7. Increase energy:
Helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy.
8. Improves digestion
Rebounding improves digestion and elimination by increasing blood flow to the gut therefore increasing it’s effectiveness.
9. Burns calories:
Rebounding burns more calories than walking or jogging because it is a whole body exercise that increases the heart rate, improves muscle tone through the entire body which in turn burns calories more calories all throughout your day.
