Bernadette E. Mitchell

Bernadette E. Mitchell, BA, LMT, BCMT, CMMP, FMTCP

Bernadette is the founder and owner of BES Natural Solutions. She is a proud honor graduate from Ashford University and the Baltimore School of Massage/Steiner Education Group and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). Bernadette has a special gift and interest in working with the elderly, people who have been injured or have other health disparities, in addition to businesses and other organizations.  This stems from her early days of providing massage to her mother and grandmother. 

My mother had lupus and would be in such great pain.  There were many days that I would add her creams and massage her ever so gently.  She said I should do this for a living and would say that I was "laying hands on her."  I would always remark, why would I want to do that since I had worked as a legal assistant/paralegal for many years.

Grandma Mary and I had a bond that no other family member shared.  We had the power of touch.  After having a number of strokes, diabetes, amputation of both legs above the knee, Grandma Mary could no longer speak as she use to.  However, I would visit them both every week and would massage and comb their hair.  Grandma Mary did not have much to say, but she would ask to have her legs and her feet "rubbed."  With no knowledge of "phantom leg pain," I would rub her legs and feet and she indicated how she felt really good and would sometimes fall asleep.  While I thought it was strange at first, I would ask her every time if she wanted me to rub her feet.  While I was not raised by my mother or grandmother I thought I did not have that much of a connection until the day she died.  I realized at that time that I would not be able to "rub" her head, legs and feet.  The one connection I learned is that we did have the power of touch and that bond was now broken.  

After a major layoff at my firm, while I did not get laid off - I realized that I needed a Plan B. I enrolled in the Baltimore School of Massage in Linthicum, Maryland and worked diligently to learn and achieve the highest honors. From that journey, I am honored and have received great benefit that my Plan B became Plan A!

I returned to college again and graduated Cum Laude from Ashford University with a Bachelor of Arts in Contemporary and Alternative Health.  In our current society, people desire more than pharmaceuticals.  My craft as a massage therapist helps to provide that care and comfort.

While we provide traditional massage and bodywork services, we specialize in medical massage treatments.  I currently provide care and treatment at Future Care Lochearn, Manor Care Health Services-Woodbridge Valley, Augsburg Lutheran Home & Village and credentialed as medical staff at the MediSpa at Mercy Medical Center.
