The lymphatic system of the body is responsible for screening bacteria and other antigens in the body. They drain the body’s fluid from the tissues and ensure that antigens are attacked by the good cells (white blood cells). The lymphatic system flow relies mainly on body movement because it does not have an organ that pumps body fluids through the system like the heart pumps blood. Now, with rebounding, the body moves entirely and thus promoting lymphatic system drainage.

2. Improved immunity and hormone balance
