If every Doctor knew about a Rebounder- they just might prescribe a daily dose of it. It passes all of the strictest testing and improves your health in more ways than you can count on our fingers. There are so many benefits to rebounding that it seems too good to be true. While using a bellicon or a Lymphaciser, you are literally engaging every single muscle in your body, powered by the force of gravity, and then relaxing them as you descend.
The act of suspending our body mid-air and then bringing it back down moves the body in the way it was meant to be used, in a dynamic, energizing and cleansing way. This ongoing cycle of bouncing does wonders for your health.
Along with a whole foods diet, regular exercise is known to have positive affects on the immune system.
Decreases Back Pain
Rebounding is a great way to stretch out the spine and open the space between discs. It also helps to strengthen the muscles in and around the back, creating a more solid foundation from which the body can be in alignment.
Helps with Osteoporosis
Rebounding provides a convenient form of exercise with a major advantage being its apparent low level of trauma to the musculoskeletal system. For people with osteoporosis, it is best to exercise without instantaneous trauma and impact on the weight bearing joints.
Helps with Osteoarthritis
Arthritis is a condition that affects the cartilage between bones. Though there are over 100 variations of the disease, one of the symptoms they unfortunately share is joint pain. The reason for this is that Arthritis causes the cartilage, a firm but flexible tissue that acts as a protective buffer between bones, to become inflamed and wear away. The loss of cartilage leads to friction between the adjoining bones, wearing them down and causing discomfort or pain for the arthritis sufferer.
If you consider how bones operate, it makes a lot of sense that they benefit from jumping. Bones, after all, are living tissue that need “weight bearing” force to build and maintain their density. “Weight bearing” exercise uses the force of gravity against bones and muscle to achieve its results.
When performed correctly, weight bearing exercise puts just enough pressure on bones to stimulate them so that they renew themselves, creating new cells to replace old ones and soaking up calcium, which makes them harder.
Exercise can be one of the best treatments for arthritis, which may seem strange when you consider that arthritis is a disease characterized by movement pain. Exercise helps by strengthening the muscles that surround the affected joints, providing additional support and relief for the damaged cartilage. Exercise can also help with weight control, further reducing stress on the joints, as well as providing more energy throughout the day and better rest at night.
“Even moderate exercise can ease your pain and help you maintain a healthy weight. When arthritis threatens to immobilize you, exercise keeps you moving.” ~The Mayo Clinic.
Type 2 Diabetes, a condition characterized by high blood sugar levels, is the fastest growing disease in the United States. Although the exact cause of diabetes is still unknown, genetic factors, weight issues and physical inactivity have been shown to contribute to the onset and progression of the disease.
A Rebounder workout provides the kind of aerobic exercise that helps to prevent diabetes or, for those already suffering from it, helps to reduce its symptoms. If you have diabetes, exercising on the Bellicon assists in regulating your insulin levels by lowering blood sugar and increasing your cells’ ability to absorb glucose, both during and after your workout…with or without insulin. This effect lasts up to 24 hours, so a gentle, effective and fun daily workout on a Rebounder will help to keep your blood sugar levels down naturally.
Improves Stress & Mental Wellness
We all know how great it feels to move. Movement isn’t just good for the body but it affects the chemistry of our brains, making us happier, healthier and more “feel-good”. Even people with physical or time limitations can use a rebounder, creating a better quality of life overall.
Lymph & Edema Health Benefits
The lymphatic system is a vast network organs and blood vessels that recycle body fluid, in the form of “lymph”. This fluid targets and removes bacteria, viruses and waste. When that system becomes sluggish or unhealthy, a variety of problems can arise, such as immune system challenges, infections, cellulite (toxins in fat cells) and even cancer. Another common health issue is lymphedema, which is when arms or legs become swollen with lymph fluid which can’t drain properly.
Working out on a Rebounder energizes your lymphatic system, keeping the fluids in motion flushing toxins, bacteria and other waste from your body, cleansing you from the inside out.
With so many diet plans available, why are most people still overweight, including those who have changed their eating habits? Because exercise is an essential, and often overlooked, part of weight control. Without exercise, your chances of losing weight are (pardon the pun) very slim.
According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, “Getting to, and staying at, a healthy weight requires both regular physical activity and a healthy eating plan.” Among members of the National Weight Control Registry, a group of more than 10,000 people who have lost an average of 66 pounds and kept it off for more than five years, 89 percent used a combination of diet and exercise to achieve success. There’s no way to get around it, if we want to lose weight and keep it off, we have to incorporate exercise into our lifestyle.
Cellulite on the body occurs in areas where toxins are stored in fat cells and accumulate, eventually becoming visible with skin dimpling. When you bounce on a rebounder, the lymphatic system is stimulated and lymph fluids flush out toxins from the cells. Regular exercise on a rebounder can dramatically decrease the incident of cellulite and instead leave toned and firm skin.
Improve Your Balance
Professional athletes know that good balance is critical to any physical activity, which is why so many of them are turning to the bellicon.
Balance can also be improved no matter what your age, making daily activities easier and helping to prevent injuries associated with falls and poor physical alignment.
Rebounding on the bellicon is a great way to improve your balance and coordination while providing the best total-body exercise available.
