RiVision® is an innovative physical rehabilitation method that is designed to treat musculoskeletal injuries and chronic pain.

This method uniquely combines manual stabilization, dance/movement therapy, physical therapy, and guided imagery.  Working together, they are more effective on your body wellness.

In order to thoroughly evaluate and analyze the complexity of the body disorder/discomfort, Dr. Rivi draws from the following elements within physical therapy, dance/movement therapy and guided imagery. In physical therapy, she relates to patient's range of motion, pain level, posture and function levels. In dance/movement therapy, she relates to the patient's typical pattern of movement and how it may be related to their injury. In guided imagery, Dr. Rivi relates to the images the patients use when describing what they are feeling in their body and responses to particular people and situations.

Sometimes a single therapy like manual/hands-on techniques is utilized. Dr. Rivi diverges from conventional practices prevalent in PT and gym setting where machines and exercises dominate.  Dr. Rivi emphasizes thorough and sensitive joint and soft tissue mobilization tailored to each patient to improve body wellness at her Upper East Side of Manhattan, NY office.  Dr. Rivi is also available for online appointments for added convenience!
