THREE ADDITIONAL BENEFITS OF “BOUNCE BACK” THE FITNESS CHAIR

#1 STRESS REDUCTION

Through the gentle bouncing motion of “Bounce Back” The Fitness Chair, you will experience a wonderful release of stress and a deep feeling of relaxation.  Three of the best-selling drugs in the USA are used to treat stress-related illnesses; 80% to 90% of all visits to health care professionals are a result of stress-related illnesses and issues; and 70% of all accidents are stress related.  Constant stress has been linked to many serious diseases with entire centers and clinics for stress reduction and stress management are becoming common in our busy would.  Exercise appears to be the most effective way of releasing the stress response in a healthy manner.  “Bounce Back” The Fitness chair is a wonderful tool for managing physical stress.  After 20 minutes in the “Bounce Back” The Fitness Chair, you well feel like a new person. Reducing stress can relieve pain in muscles and joints as well as improving mental stability.  To understand the great ability of the “Bounce Back” The Fitness Chair to reduce stress, you have only to try it!

#2 STIMULATES LYMPHATIC FLOW

 The lymph system is literally your body’s “Tree of Life”.  Lymph fluid is clear and surrounds every cell in your body.  Its function is to neutralize, remove or dissolve the toxic wastes that build up in your body and provide your cells with a clean environment in which to perform their life building tasks.  When the lymph system fails to function properly, excess fluid and poisons build up in the body and pain, loss of energy, infections and disease can take place.  “Bounce Back”The Fitness Chair will stimulate the activity of the lymph system and help it to perform its function more efficiently!  The lymph fluid circulates completely through the body approximately two times every 24 hours.  “Bounce Back”The Fitness Chair can speed up the flow of the lymph fluid by as much as 10 times, increasing your body’s ability to eliminate toxins and provide needed nutrients to each cell.  Only deep breathing exercises have a similar impact on the lymph system.

#3 STIMULATES BLOOD FLOW

The gentle bouncing motion experienced in the legs and arms while sitting in “Bounce Back” The Fitness Chair, stimulates the muscles in your thighs, knees calves and ankles and increases the circulation of blood to your legs and lower body.  Some individuals have experienced increased feeling in their hips and legs.   Better circulation provides more warmth in your hands and feet.

The blood caries oxygen to every cell in our bodies and improved blood circulation means more oxygen and more nutrients for every cell.  As the lymph system provides our cells with a clean, balanced environment in which to function, improved blood circulation provides more of the nutrients the cells require for proper function.
