Rebound Therapy

Rebound Therapy is a form of physiotherapy. It uses trampolines to  provide therapeutic exercises to people with a wide variety of disabilities and additional needs. By using our sensory equipment on our sunken trampoline, our sessions provide therapeutic exercise and recreation to children and young adults alike who have a wide range of special needs and will benefit from sensory feedback and interaction. Most of all, it’s fun!

Rebound Therapy is one of the most popular activities for children with special needs in UK SEN schools.

Some of the benefits of Rebound Therapy include the development and improvement of:

  • Strength of limbs
