Vivian Bernardi, LMT ART
Vivian started working in a chiropractic office in 1993 as a bilingual office assistant. By 1994 she received her certification as a chiropractic x-ray technician and chiropractor’s assistant. In 1995 she graduated from the Health Options Institute massage therapy program and has worked with chiropractors since. Besides performing massage therapy to patients in 1999 she managed a chiropractic office for 14 years. She is licensed in the State of Pennsylvania for massage therapy and a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.
After sustaining an injury in a 2015 motor vehicle accident and treating for a year with traditional chiropractic, physical therapy and massage therapy her recovery came to a plato. She found herself with residual left arm weakness and nerve impingement seriously affecting her ability to proper deliver massage therapy to her clients without further compromising her well being. That's when she became aware of Active Release Techniques® (ART) through a friend. She started treatment with Dr Donna Copertino at Back In Action and experienced exceptional improvement to her injury in a short period of time. Vivian decided to become an ART® Provider and in August 2017 began her journey in this effective soft tissue modality by becoming certified.
Vivian integrates a number of different massage systems to customize each session to the needs of the individual client. Such as Active Release Techniques®, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue and Reflexology to name a few.
In addition she believes in service to the community and is proud to have supported several causes by volunteering her time at 5/10K races and donating her services to such organizations as the American Diabetes Assn, Pediatric Cancer, Salvation Army Care 4 Kids, Ben Yourgey Foundation and National Alliance for Mental Illness.
