‘the true value of Rebound Therapy lies in the fact that part of what occurs is not ‘on earth” Eddy Anderson
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.
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. Gymnastics NSW have been working in partnership with Rebound Therapy.org, since 2009, to launch and implement the program within Australia (Rebound Therapy Australia), which culminated in Paul and Eddy’s first visit to Australian soil in October 2010.
