Rebound therapy is a rehabilitation service provided for people with learning or physical disabilities. It’s a form of physiotherapy involving the use of a trampoline and has become incredibly popular with people of all ages. Participants gain tremendous benefits from taking part in the sessions, helping them to overcome difficulties relating to physical health, communication, self-esteem and confidence and helping them have fun.
