Hi,

I've heard that a rebounder, or mini-trampoline, is good for getting toxins out of your body.

Does anybody have one? If so, how does it work for you? Also, where did you get it?

I've seen some with a handlebar on it, and think that would be good to steady yourself, especially for my son.

I have been jumping on my kids backyard trampoline. Its all good...
heart rate goes up, it apparently is beneficial for your lymphatic system and its fun.

I usually forget to skin brush so I'm going the rebounding route.

I would recommend getting one!

I do! I can only lightly bounce right now, and only for about 3 minutes, but it is still worth it. I love it!

Got it at Academy sports.

An AIREX BALANCE PAD is also helpful for a mild bounce, especially if one has vertigo or inner ear / balance issues that can be aggravated with a mini-trampoline rebounder.

Most who have no problems with inner ear issues do very well with light bouncing on a rebounder. Just be sure to get one that is very well built and solid so that the wear is even all the way around.

Sitting (never standing) on a PT/Balance Ball can also provide some bounce to move the lymph - and the feet push from the floor, also helping.

If this is for your son, depending upon his age, maybe family members can provide the bounce with shared exercises that would be both fun and bonding experiences set to music.

If you buy anything new, be sure it can off-gas in fresh air for few days, at least. The AIREX pad is closed cell foam and I never noticed any smell.

I had to give away a trampoline, though, as the smell was just horrid. But, I had had one decades ago that was just perfect. I just had to leave it when I moved.

A brand new PT/Balance Ball, too, would need some airing out as vinyl can really off-gas. Keep out of sunlight and away from heaters.

Had a Needak with a stabilizing bar. Very impressed !

Supposedly the mini tramps are more effective with the lymphatic system. Bouncing on anything else is not as effective (have studied them a bit).

The Needak runs about $300-400. They should last 10 - 20 years.
The Urbans seem OK and about $100 on amazon.

Cheaper ones will injure yor ankles, knees, hips + back.

Reboundair is my brand and I love it!

No question that it helped me tremendously with my lyme induced rheumatoid arthritis. At first I could only sit on it but after a couple of months I could stand and bounce very gently for 5 mins or so. Gentle bouncing is all you need to move toxins.

Within a few more months I was jumping vigorously for up to 30 mins. I bounce in front of the TV.

Today I have no sign of arthritis in my joints and I know the rebounder was a big part of my recovery.

I find it hard to motivate myself to use mine if I am feeling awful, so, paradoxically, I tend to use it in better phases.

I then try to go on it for a count of 120, 3 times a day and I do find that it helps with energy, posture and muscle tightness:

Must start it again TODAY!

I keep meaning to use mine when I read these posts but haven't yet. It is sitting on my front porch. It doesn't have a bar but I am able to hold onto the railing while bouncing.

It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day here, sun is out already at 8:30 a.m. I think maybe I'll give it a try a bit later.

I have the urban rebounder and really like it! my 4 (almost 5) year old gets on it and jumps while i am exercising on the treadmill (it is in the same room).

Thanks for all the feedback. I ended up ordering an Urban Rebounder. It arrived yesterday, and looks like a good one. Now I just need to make sure I get in a routine of using it. [Big Grin]

Great to hear that !

Watch a favorite TV show while bouncing.

And do not, as I often tell my 2 kids, let those kids if they use it have too much fun !

We have one and it works. We also use the Galileo - a vibration plate - rebuilding muscles for people who physically cannot be on normal gym equipment, walk or exercise, but need to exercise while sitting or standing.

Be reminded that any equipment bouncing will shake the tree!, i.e. knock off toxic elements incl. toxic metals that you need to look after with binders to prevent recirculation and reabsorption.

Take care.

i have an urban rebounder... you can order them online from wal-mart for $90 and they come with a stabilizing bar. the urban rebounding company is awesome at replacing parts under warranty too... i wore my mat out from jumping on it so much and they just looked up my credit card information and sent me a new one right away! they didn't make me send in a receipt or anything! some parts are covered for 1 year and others are covered for 5 [Smile]

i used to do the urban rebounding workout dvds and they are awesome, but i had to stop because almost immediately after my whole body stiffens up and i end up in bed all day unable to move [Frown]

i recently read that bouncing is good for your lymphatic system though so i plan to start jumping a few minutes a day while watching tv.

Even if you do not own a rebounder, if lymphatics are a problem, lightly hopping ten times - every hour - wherever you are - works well. Just hold on to something to avoid falling.

One has to be very careful with doing lymphatic drainage massage or any deep tissue work, because that may cause more toxin (mostly toxic metals) than the body can handle at a time.

Anything that stresses the body or organs is not beneficial for healing. Easy does it and you will get there just the same WITH ORGANS INTACT!
I have been using one with handle bar and I also use the Galileo, a vibration plate - now available in many gyms. My husband uses that for about 3x3 minutes at varying frequencies giving him the equivalent of a 2-3 hour workout at a gym.

Lots of ways to keep mobile!

I've had a Needak for about 5 years now. I only wish my LLMD had suggested using one earlier. It released the mystery muscle pain in my upper arms, helped me regain my balance, and also got me exercising regularly again. And the detox benefits are huge.

Just a little goes a long long way, so if you've got one tucked under the bed, Use it!!
