Customers from Surrey Choices demonstrate the skills they have learnt from Rebound Therapy at a presentation day.
Surrey Choices introduced Rebound Therapy sessions in September 2015, and it has proved to be extremely beneficial to customers.
Rebound Therapy is the use of trampolines to provide therapeutic exercise and recreation for people with a wide range of support needs. As well as providing a variety of health and fitness benefits, Rebound Therapy also helps to build confidence and develop communication skills, whilst in a fun and sociable environment.
Surrey Choices provides support services in the community for people with learning, mental, physical or sensory disability.
Enthusiastic customers took part in a presentation day at Surrey Choices’ Lockwood service, on Friday 19 August, demonstrating the skills and moves they have been recently working on to family, friends and staff. The presentation day was rounded off with an award ceremony and certificate presentation, for customers who had achieved Winstrada Award levels in Rebound Therapy and Trampolining.
Speaking of the Rebound Therapy, Surrey Choices day service officer, Donna Wilson, said: “We’re delighted to offer Rebound Therapy as it gives our customers a wide range of benefits, and they really enjoy the sessions. The presentation day was a fantastic opportunity for our customers to showcase the work we have been doing and to celebrate the achievements of our customers so far.”
Rachel Risbridger, whose son attends three Rebound Therapy sessions a week, said: “My son absolutely loves attending the sessions, and it definitely helps his physical, mental and social skills. The exercise is really good for him, and it’s helped him to improve in following commands, as well as becoming more interactive, and he will now have short conversations with Donna when he uses the trampoline.”
