The phrase "Rebound Therapy" was coined by the founder, E.G. Anderson, in 1969 to describe the use of trampolines in providing therapeutic exercise and recreation for people with a wide range of special needs. Participants range from mild to severe physical disabilities and from mild to profound and multiple learning disabilities, including sensory impairment autism, dyspraxia etc.
We would recommend undergoing an assessment to see what therapy is required.

I am a trained Rebound Therapist, can I use your facilities?
If you are a trained Rebound Therapist you are welcome to use our facilities (charges will apply) with your clients. This includes the room hire, use of a junior sized trampoline, and private facilities. Please contact us for more information and costs.
How do I know if my child needs Rebound Therapy?
Not all children or adolescents will require Rebound Therapy as part of their therapy, it varies on each case. We would recommend undergoing an assessment to see what therapy is required.
Is it just trampolining?
No. Rebound Therapy is often misunderstood. During a Rebound Therapy session, you are always accompanied on the trampoline by a trained therapist who will use a variety of techniques to help encourage movement, posture and balance. The child will never be left alone on the trampoline and will include full 1:1 therapy.
