Rebound Therapy

The phrase ‘Rebound Therapy’ was coined by the founder, E.G. Anderson, in 1969 , to describe the use of trampolines to provide therapeutic exercise and recreation for people  with a wide range of special needs. In 2006, Eddy joined forces with disability sports coaches and Saturn V Rebound Hall founders Paul and Shirley Kaye and formed ‘Rebound Therapy.org’, www.reboundtherapy.org, the UK governing body and international consultancy for Rebound Therapy.

Rebound Therapy is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, promote an increase or decrease in muscle tone, promote relaxation, promote sensory integration, improve fitness and exercise tolerance and to improve communication skills.
