The lymphatic system does not have its own pump to keep fluids flowing (unlike our circulatory system, which has the heart). So we must create our own pump, and one of the main ways to do that is through exercise — without it, waste and toxins can build up and create fatigue, illness, swelling, and pain.

The one-way valves of the lymph system run in the same direction, up and down the arms, legs, and torso. The most effective way to get them flowing is by moving on a vertical plane (up and down). This is where rebounding comes in, with an assist in intensity from the forces of gravity. An added benefit of jumping on the trampoline is the activation of all muscles — voluntary and involuntary — which aids in additional lymph flow.

Beyond that, the bungees on the mini-trampoline absorb most of the shock, making it gentle on the joints and allowing you to jump for as long as you want.
