A number of different therapies are carried out in this school to support learning and physical development.
The therapies carried out are as follows:
Pupils from Hednesford Valley High school attend Cannock Leisure Centre with a qualified PE/rebound therapist to use some full size trampolines. A hoist is available so the facilities can be accessed by all.
For a child or young person with a physical disability and learning difficulties, rebound therapy is a great form of therapeutic exercise and fun.
Rebound therapy offers a wide range of positive outcomes from enjoyment and relaxation to improved postural control and balance. It promotes purposeful interaction and increased eye contact and language skills.
Massage Therapy involves a variety of manual techniques to manipulate muscles and soft tissues of the body. During a treatment the trained staff will use a number of different strokes varying in pressure and movement to aid relaxation.
All sessions take place in quiet, comfortable surroundings. Treatments are generally delivered on a one to one basis.
Massage Therapy has been shown to have many physical benefits including:
- Pain relief
- Reduced muscle tone.
- Improved joint mobility and muscle length.
- Better digestion.
- Improved circulation.
- Improved sleep.
- Improved eye contact.
- Reduced hypersensitivity which can lead to increased acceptance of touch
