Mini exercise trampoline
rebounding helps to restore
lymphatic flow when you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A mini exercise
trampoline will also provide you with gentle aerobic exercise that is
not weather dependant.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is
characterised by lethargy that makes it difficult for us to find energy
to exercise. Unfortunately, this lack of exercise has a negative effect
on the lymphatic system and recovery from chronic fatigue syndrome.
and the Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system, a major part of the body's immune system, is a
network of lymph nodes, ducts, and vessels that transport lymphatic
fluid from the tissues to the bloodstream.
Lymph nodes act as filters and
remove bacteria and toxins. Their role is vital in maintaining health
and the lymph system must be kept flowing in order to function
correctly, especially for those suffering from chronic fatigue
People with chronic fatigue
syndrome often have depressed immune systems, and a healthy lymphatic
system will reduce the symptoms.
Unlike the circulatory system
which uses the heart as a pump, the lymph system relies on body
movement, that is, exercise to circulate lymph around the body.
When you don't exercise
sufficiently, the lymph system becomes stagnant and blocked. For those
with chronic fatigue syndrome, it means your body is unable to
efficiently dispose of toxins and bacteria and begin to heal.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Sufferers Can Rebound with Exercise
When you are feeling dragged down by chronic fatigue syndrome, exercise
is the furthest thing from your mind. However, to reduce the symptoms
of chronic fatigue syndrome you need to exercise to get your lymph
system moving and rid your body of harmful toxins and waste.
Lymph fluid is activated in
three ways: muscular contraction from exercise, gravitational pressure,
and internal massage to the valves of the lymph ducts.
You don't have to run marathons
in order to get the exercise you need. In fact, a mini exercise
trampoline called a rebounder is the perfect exercise tool for you.
For chronic fatigue sufferers,
mini exercise trampoline rebounding is the most efficient and effective
form of exercise to get your lymph system flowing.
Exercise Trampoline Advantages:
More Efficient Exercise:
For those with chronic fatigue syndrome, mini exercise trampoline
rebounding is a very efficient form of exercise.
With most forms of exercise,
you have to spend as much energy decelerating as you do accelerating.
But when you exercise with a rebounder, at the bottom of a bounce the
force is recycled upwards without you having to expend extra energy.
For those with chronic fatigue syndrome, this energy saving is a
When you bounce downwards, the
mat absorbs the impact. Even though the impact is cushioned, it still
strengthens the entire body more thoroughly than any other form of
exercise. If you suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, a strong body is
Gentle on the Joints:
Chronic fatigue syndrome sufferers usually have joint problems and
pain. With this form of exercise the mat absorbs up to 87% of the
shock. Thus exercise using a rebounder causes very little wear and tear
on the body - perfect for those with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Improved Lymphatic Flow: When
you exercise with a rebounder every cell in your body goes up with you
and comes down with you. Exercise like this increases circulation in
the lymph system.
The effects of this type of
exercise on the lymph system are many: better detoxification, greater
relaxation, and increased strength.
When it comes down to it, a little fun is good for the soul. This is
one form of exercise that is great fun. In fact, it's so enjoyable it
doesn't feel like work.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is not
much fun, so why not try something that will do your body some good and
leave you with a smile on your face? Ten minutes of exercise on a
rebounder will really get your lymph moving and reduce your chronic

Don't try to do all the steps
below the first time you use the mini exercise trampoline. Begin with
step 1 for a couple of minutes and see how you feel. Over a few weeks
you can build in the other steps as you gain strength and stamina.
- With your arms and shoulders relaxed,
gradually start bouncing up and down on the trampoline. Breathe deeply
and exhale completely with each bounce.
- Now put your arms out parallel with your
shoulders. As you bounce, move your arms in a circular motion. Begin
the exercise with small tight circles and expand them to bigger ones
until you're moving your arms as if you are holding a skipping rope.
- Slow down to a steady jog. Raise your
knees so that your feet are four inches off the mini exercise
trampoline. This can be strenuous, so go easy. In the beginning, for
this exercise, simply walk on the trampoline and lift your knees a
- Go back to a steady bounce. Shuffle your
feet back and forth in mid-air, first one foot, then the other.
- Now twist your body from the waist down
as you bounce, first to one side, then the other. For this exercise, it
helps to steady yourself by holding your arms out.
- Finally, a very energetic exercise on the
mini exercise trampoline. While bouncing, kick one foot out in front of
you, lifting it as high as you can. Do the other side alternately.
