"Having a dozen of my staff trained as Rebound Therapy trainers was the most effective training expenditure I have ever commissioned, in terms of measurable outcome from my students."
"...... pupils would benefit from more regular access to this outstanding provision."
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.
For these reasons, the Rebound Therapy training course is widely accepted as the logical starting point for trampoline coach training - even for those who do not intend to work with disabilities.
The training course has been continually developing since it was first introduced in 1972 and is recognised both nationally in the UK and abroad.
