Lymphatic Rebounding Hazards: Don't buy till you read this.
Moving 4 teaspoons of lymph per minute on a high repetition rebounder can cause many problems if not on a probiotic or the person has a messed up liver. Everyone wants to lose fat and ends up bouncing on a rebounder. When the oils that are being burned in the liver, they leave ashes and residue, just like ashes in a fireplace.
Rebounding is a part of a multi layer approach to getting all the swelling out of the body. About 99% of the people that just bounce and don't know what they are doing don't get results. I have personally called back about 200 people that mentioned they had lymphatic issues on my quiz from 2004. I asked if they still are using the rebounder they bought from me. All the people that got rid of their swelling and lymphatic problems were the ones that knew what they were doing. I gave a free 30 minute consultation with every rebounder. Almost 9 out of 10 didn't even take the free call.
I strongly suggest that anyone rebounding for the first time learns the proper way to rebound. Most people don't even buy the right type of rebounder and get springs that are not heavy or responsive enough for their weight at the low amplitude Health Bounce.
I don't sell the cheap sporting good store grade rebounders that have springs that are 50 grams or less, such as the picture to the right.
The health bounce is when the rebounder gives just enough G force to make you airborne for a split second without being in the air any longer than you need to. The heavier the spring the more responsive it is that will give higher G force closer to the mat instead of having to go several inches higher out of the mat to get the same G force.
Compare the different types of Spring types and weights to get the perfect Health Bounce.
4 teaspoons of lymph exchanges per minute should be the goal. Each type of spring gives a different bounce per minute count and mainly depends on the weight of the person. The New Cellerciser is the only one I have tested that adjusts to the weight. Some have a flat, bottom out feel that you have to expend more energy to do the health bounce and others give many more free bounces where you are working with more momentum with a heavier spring.
Springs at this weight can't generate enough G force to accelerate you just above the mat to flush the lymphatic channels. These are nowhere near over 100 grams per spring that gives the Health Bounce.
People are rebounding for years thinking they are doing the Health Bounce. Most people jump and land on their toes just like they would jump rope. It is impossible to get the benefits everyone talks about when jumping like this. The ballistic impact is dampened to give the G force by not allowing you to jump high out of the mat and landing on your toes defeats the whole purpose of rebounding. It might feel unnatural to do the heal to toe rolling motion but it will come natural usually after a few sessions.
The toxins diffusing from the body by the lymphatic system just dumps the waste into another eliminatory organ and the problem never gets resolved. Goes from one eliminatory organ to the other. So stupid that the "know it all" people don't need advice and think that someone was gonna try to sell them some supplements that they don't need. Sure enough, they stay swollen and never get the results that rebounding promises. Too many people with fibromyalgia and inflammatory problems have told me how they got rid of it. New people come to my site and don't consider that they are into in the best of health and just buy the rebounder and think they are going to get results they hear on the chart of benefits on some rebounder sales website. I am not going to preach or try to offer advice. Just know that it is part of the responsibility of selling a rebounder educate if someone wants it. I know if I sell someone a rebounder and I don't explain how to do the health bounce or tell them the detox concerns of moving too many teaspoons of lymphatic fluid in one session when just beginning is just setting people that buy a rebounder from me for failure.
The people that do it wrong get the rashes and bumpy skin on the back of their arms and wonder why they suddenly got a rash. They blame the rebounder.The toxins are being released from the skin because the gut is so clogged up already and liver can't even process the wastes. I hate to speak to people like they are idiots but they are. I even gave a free probiotic with every rebounder if I didn't have to pay the rebounding coaches for the 30 minute call. I'm not gonna start offering unsolicited advice to people that I think need my help. It's like telling a fat friend of mine to workout and go to the gym and it makes them not want to go even more.
Rebounding is supposed to loosen up the muscles. Yea, for most people but when the body has exhausted the normal eliminatory organs, they settle in the connective tissues causing all kinds of problems.
What pisses me off even more is that the people selling these just sell them and don't feel its their duty to give the education that goes along with it. It's my duty to tell people what I know if they are buying a rebounder from me. I'm not gonna push people but the people that know I offer it can come to me or my coaches when they are ready.
When the toxins are all built up in the connective tissues, it then goes back into the bloodstream and it then goes back into the fat cells, its a never ending circle for people that don't know what they are doing. Can somebody say "Detox!
Depending on the spring, it will determine h0w much lymph fluid is flushed
ONE TEASPOON of lymph per minute: Typically the cheap lightweight non-tiered spring that is found on the 50 dollar sporting good store brands. Just know that they can be jarring especially since you have to jump about 4 times as long to get the same benefits as a rebounder designed for the Health Bounce. 80 minutes on here would equal about 15 to 20 minutes on the best one for your weight.
TWO TEASPOONS of lymph per minute: These springs have a little more weight to them and are usually about 50 to 80 grams per spring. They are still jarring and don't give nearly 3 G force yet at amplitudes just above the mat. These typically double the session time to get the same amount of lymphatic flush that the best spring for your weight would give
THREE TEASPOONS of lymph per minute: These are typically the springs that are 80 to 100 grams per spring. These are heavy enough to give the health bounce and the closer to 100 grams the more responsive they are giving more G force at the low amplitudes. This weight takes out most of the ballistic impact letting you bounce for longer session which doesn't hurt most people's knees or ankles. The closer to 100 grams the closer to 4 teaspoons of lymph fluid can be exchanged.
FOUR TEASPOONS of lymph per minute: These are typically the springs that are tiered at the end that gently adjust in tension to taper off to give that pop at the acceleration of the bounce. These are the springs that are known for moving 4 teaspoons of lymph per minute. These are typically over 100 grams per spring each. These springs cut down rebounding time as you get more cumulative G force over a shorter period of time. The springs like these gently pop you up just above the mat instead of throwing you higher above the mat to get the same G force. These give the most bounces per minute of all springs.

HEAL TO TOE BOUNCING
When lymphatic fluid is not flushed, toxins can build up in the chin just like this. Rebounding, doing the Health Bounce, is one of the best ways to get enough flushes so the body won't swell and hold inflamation.
If the body is not adapted yet to moving 4 teaspoons of lymph per minute, its best to either cut down the session time or bounce with lower intensity. Please take a probiotic if you need one to help assimilate the lymphatic ash burned from the liver.
Sweat Spot & Health Bounce: Each rebounder has a smaller or larger sweet spot, or jumping area before it starts to cone in at the middle of the mat which turns in the ankles. The lighter the springs the more the mat will cone in with heavier weight people. A 200 pound person will get a smaller sweat spot than a 150 pound person will get. A 200 pound person would usually prefer a spring over 100 grams. The less the mat has to sag the more surface area the mat will give. On the cheaper springs the responsiveness is possible but you have to spread your feet out close to the edge of the mat to get a firmer bounce which is not the most natural way to jump with the legs at an angle past shoulder width.
Ways to get the most out of the Health Bounce:
Dry skin brushing: Before rebounding for about 3 to 4 minutes, get a black sheet and see how much dead skin comes off just in a 4 minute brushing session. Doing this before rebounding really helps the clogged oil glands in the skin release the sebaceous oils filled with toxins out of the body. Getting rid of the dead skin before rebounding really helps stimulate the lymph vessels under the skin.
ONce the skin is cleansed and the pores can function, the best way is to dry skin brush before you bounce to clear the pores so the sebaceous sweat can drain, not jus the water based sweat. Most people that don't do it can get the bumpy skin and rashes sooner or later. The skins has to be thoroughly cleaned before a rebounding session to get the most out of it. Up to 2 pounds can be eliminated through the skin during a rebounding session. Water, sebaceous oils and toxic waste.
Dry skin brushing can also bring blood to the skin surface and prep the lymph vessels for the rebounding session. Just having a good soap is not good enough. Taking a hot shower and turning it to cold to hot to cold to hot after the session helps restore the skin also. After showering, sitting in a bathtub with epson salt and apple cider vinegar, (get a full cup of it) and 4 cups of that salt. This really makes the big difference in drawing out the rest of the toxins that didn't come out during the rebounding session that were just on the verge which were diffused from the body fat. The cold and hot shower before the epson soak shuts on and off the pores really maximizes the whole effect of the experience.
This is all for the reason to get the swelling out of the body. Swelling is the sign of the body being over loaded with wastes.
Jumping with the dry skin brushing and the shower and the bath every morning as a ritual of mine. The people that do it thank me later for giving this advice. It is best to do the ritual in the morning instead of the evening.
Health Bounce Warning:
Above mat time - too long:
The health bounce is when you barely have to leave the mat to get enough G force to throw you in the air to get that split second of weightless. When the body oscillates between increased G force and Zero G force, creating a compression/decompression, this diffuses fluid into and out of the cells, which carries fresh oxygen and nutrients inside and flushes toxins out.
The cleansing process is decreased significantly when the repetition count is slowed down. The rebounders we have chosen as our favorites have the highest repetition rate and keep you lowest to the mat.
There has to be enough pressure exerted on the lymphatic system when accelerating off the mat, even if you aren't leaving the mat. If the pop is too hard it will jar you even though it creates the G force. If it throws you up too slow, it won't activate the valves in the lymphatic channels enough to force fluid in and out of the cell.
The rebounders not designed for the health bounce will still move lymph, its just a matter of moving 4 teaspoons of fluid per minute or much less. The best rebounders can speed up the the lymph movement as much as 300% as others. A good session can cleanse the entire lymphatic system. After that, there needs to be enough time for the wastes to be processed in the body before the next session.
Yes, it can make you itch like mosquitos biting you all over.
Call me to make sure this doesn't happen to you.
Warning: The Health bounce on the Cellerciser, moving 4 teaspoons of lymph (lymph turns) per minute and breaking up circulation blockages doing the Health Bounce needs to be done with caution. Please call if you are concerned.
I always make sure that I never land on my toes. The reason to land on the heals is to get the G force to break open blockages. The Cellerciser keeps the feet the closest to the mat with the least airborne time which stops the negative pressure which can slow lymph drainage.
Warning: The Health Bounce can make you itch, I mean to the point that you want to put some anti-itch cream on your legs. 80% of the lymphatic vessels are in our legs. I do not recommend toxic people to rebound more than 2 minutes at a time until the lymph can drain until the next session.
The way the Health Bounce technique is performed is by pushing down on the heels to give an upward movement but not too much force so that the toes still remain on the mat. The only part of the foot that comes off the mat is the heels. When landing the heels receive 90% of the weight. The other key to this form is making sure the knees are almost unbent. I never lock my knees but bend them just slightly. As you do this and are bouncing see if you can notice how you feel the forces of gravity more in your upper body and head with your knees less bent versus more bent and also when landing and rising on your heels versus toes.
So in this technique it’s all about getting as many bounces in during a session to flush the lymphatic system. This technique became so popular that there was a rebounder company that created their equipment to efficiently use that specific movement. With that brand I do like the efficiency of how many bounces I can get per minute but sometimes I also like to use other movements as well over the course of a week so I have to use my other favorite rebounder brand as well.
I’ll be honest I use even a third brand of rebounder for other more dynamic exercises that involve jumping very high off the mat. Some folks tell me they would love to do all the different movements I do but they are not going to spend all that money on three rebounders and is there just one that will do it all?! The answer is there is one brand that can support 80% of every type of movement. Some movements it is perfect on and others it’s pretty close to other brands that just specialize in those other movements.
I talk about technique a lot and I personally am a been fan of doing a variety of routines if the goal is weight loss. Why? Because with the exception of the health bounce type of movement I explained above, the body can adapt very quickly to different types of movements and if the goal is keeping the rate of fat loss high then a variety of movements will keep challenging the body.
Let me give an example, some types of rebounders are much more challenging to maintain balance on. The body needs to work much harder to bounce on them and this can equate to more calories burned. Also some rebounders have the option of a bar. Sometimes this can be helpful for when a lot of movements and routines want to be performed on the rebounder. Some of the routines call for use of a bar in order to accomplish them. If one has a desire to work the body out then a bar will add new potential movements into the mix. Resistance bands also are an easy way to challenge the muscles more and incorporate bouncing and resistance onto the upper body. They can easily be placed under the rebounder regardless of the brand.
I specifically warn people all the time that if they weight above a certain amount they should not consider certain brands unless they want to keep replacing certain parts on those rebounders. It can get expensive. This gets us back to the whole debate between when a person wants a rebounder with bungee resistance cords versus metal springs. Please see the Buying Based on Your Weight page on the site for more important info on this.
To put it simply some rebounders can generate more stress and forces on the body and this can lead to greater calories burned over time.
