What is Rebound Therapy?

Briefly, it is the phrase that describes the specific 'Eddy Anderson model'of exercise therapy which uses trampolines to provide opportunities for movement, therapeutic exercise and recreation for people across the whole spectrum of special needs.

Sometimes referred to as special needs trampolining, but that does not give a full picture. The Rebound Therapy training course teaches logical progressions of movement patterns designed to encourage the student to continually develop whilst at the same time experiencing healthy exercise and enjoyment.
