Vita Lerman, Dipl. ABT (NCCAOM), AOBTA®-CP.

Vita found People’s Community Acupuncture when she was looking for a spot to do her externship hours for her Shiatsu certification. She liked our sliding scale and the community concept. The patients liked her.

Some compared her shiatsu to floating. Another said, “I don’t have breathing problems, but while she worked on me, my lungs ‘opened up’ and I breathed better than I ever have.”

Vita is nationally board certified as a Diplomate of Asian Bodywork Therapy by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She also is credentialed as a Shiatsu Certified Practitioner by the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA), a national professional association that defines Asian bodywork therapy educational standards that are grounded in Chinese medicine. She completed a 625-hour certification program at Zen Shiatsu Chicago and an externship at People’s Community Acupuncture. Vita also is a Master-level Reiki practitioner.
