Misty Hudspeth, LMT, ND, LM and CPM

Misty has been a Licensed Midwife and a Certified Professional Midwife for over 30 years. She is able to integrate bodywork with her prenatal clients.  Prenatal clients is one of the fastest-growing special client populations for massage in NWA. As a progressive and inclusive school we feel all of our students should be able to do a prenatal massage.

During her classes, Misty guides us through the information massage therapists must know for this special population.  At the Black Brook School have a special opportunity for our students as Misty invites her mom's in for a prenatal massage.

Herbs and nutrition are another passion of Misty's and she recently received her Doctor of Naturopathy so she is able to share her expertise with our students in part of our self-care section of the class.
