"The principles of Rebound Therapy form the basis of all gymnastic movement and are therefore the logical and advisable starting point for trampoline coach training – even for those who have no intention of teaching people with disabilities."
What exactly are the principles of Rebound Therapy?
Rebound Therapy enhances basic movements by allowing energy assisted patterns of movement to be programmed and easily repeated. This process encompasses movement needs within the motor impaired groups and provides a sound basis upon which able participants can progress through the range of performance levels.
E.G. Anderson - Founder of Rebound Therapy
For a theoretical framework, trainers and training course candidates can refer to a number of papers provided as part of the course information pack.
The title 'Rebound Therapy' was created by the founder Eddy Anderson in 1969, and when correctly applied, describes a specific methodology, assessment and programme of use of trampolines to provide opportunities for enhanced movement patterns, therapeutic positioning, exercise and recreation for a wide range of users with additional needs.
In order to ensure that the quality and integrity of Rebound Therapy is maintained, only those who are qualified and validated by the governing body - ReboundTherapy.org - in the UK, or by one of their overseas partners, may legitimately use the phrase 'Rebound Therapy' to describe their work.
