RiVision™ is an innovative physical therapy method that is designed to treat musculoskeletal injuries and chronic pain. This method uniquely combines physical therapy, dance/movement therapy and guided imagery so that, working together, they can be more effective than they would be if used separately (RiVision Healing Centre).
This book is a concise guide to the new physical therapy treatment, RiVision™. Authored by the pioneer of the technique, Dr Rivi Har-El from State University New York Downstate Medical Centre, the first chapters provide an overview of RiVision™ and its application.
The following chapters explain each component of the technique – physical therapy, dance/movement therapy and guided imagery – and how they interrelate to help treat musculoskeletal pain. Case studies featuring treatment goals, exercises and outcomes are also included.
