Barbara Ann Johnson-Stokes, owner of "1st Comes Health" is an Elite Master B.E.S.T. practitioner and a member and affiliate of the Morter Health System. (

B.E.S.T., the acronym for Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique was invented by Dr. M.T. Morter Jr. over 40 years ago in his attempt to "get to the root cause of disease."

B.E.S.T. is a hands only procedure that removes, through non-forceful gentle touch of the energy pulses, primary interference (often a past, present or future thought), permitting structure (bones) and function (muscle) to normalize, so that the body can heal.

B.E.S.T. is used to address stress and promote balance in the body, including the nervous, muscular, circulatory, digestive and hormonal system which, when out of balance can create a pattern of physical, emotional and chemical symptoms, including illness and disease.

While creating B.E.S.T., Dr. Morter, taking a holistic approach to health, focused on the Six Essentials for Life, which are:

  1. What you eat;
  2. What you drink;
  3. How you exercise;
  4. How you rest;
  5. What and how you breathe; and
  6. What you think.

B.E.S.T. is appropriate for children and adults.

Licensed Massage Therapist

Ms. Johnson-Stokes is also a Licensed Massage Therapist. Massage is an excellent complement to B.E.S.T. The purpose of massage is "to improve the circulation of the blood, relaxation of muscles, clarity of the mind, and calmness of spirit, which in turn will have a positive effect upon the energy field that extends from the body."

Ms. Johnson-Stokes focuses on Children's Massage, Compassionate Touch Massage for the elderly and Swedish Massage for adults. All massage session have an initial B.E.S.T. component.
