If licensed massage therapist Bernadette Singleton has learned anything in the eight years since she opened BES Enterprise Natural Solutions, it’s that no two bodies react to treatment the same way. Human senses can be capricious and hard to control—something she knows all too well from her own battle with Meniere’s disease.
Bernadette draws on her years of therapeutic practice as well as her own life experiences to create custom massages that cater to her clients’ individual needs. Her own sensitivity to store-bought products compelled her to handcraft her own blends of oils, creams, and deodorants, and many of these formulas have since worked their way into her treatments. When she isn’t releasing tension with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques or coating water-heated pebbles in oil for a hot-stone massage, she continues to craft cold-processed soaps, hand-dipped candles, and blends of shea butter harvested from cows that once grazed in the New York Mets’ outfield.
