Thank you for visiting my site today. I will assume you are looking for Total Harmony, both inside and out.

My name is Maureen Hughes, PhD, LMT, CTT, CATP,
and I am one of the most highly educated
massage and bodywork practitioners in St. Louis, Missouri.
I am also an Integrative Health and Wellness Specialist

that focuses on using SomaVeda® Methods of Traditional and Indigenous Therapies. The work that I offer is about finding consciousness and connection through and with the body. I have helped many people release their pains, lose weight, and regain mobility which has a much greater impact on their lives than they could have ever imagined.

It also helps those that are healthy get even healthier!

Although I offer individual sessions, my passion is offering the SomaVeda® Individualized Programs, which include a personalized mix of the following modalities: SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Hatha Yoga Lessons (geared towards beginners), Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), Ayurveda Based Nutritional Counseling, Reiki, and Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Testing).

Getting the body in working order both physically and energetically takes precedence when starting the process of healing from any ailment including post-surgical recovery, cancer recovery, alcohol recovery, and trauma recovery (including PTSD).

The path of Integrated Wellness with Total Harmony is about the multi-faceted journey to look inside of ourselves and understand what is "right" for us. 
I help people in transition. I help people at wits end. I help people regain their hope. I help people set goals for their health and keep them. Whether there has been the death of a love partner, a battle with cancer, stroke, trauma recovery, a need for weight loss, or a desire to remove alcohol and/or drugs from your life, there are many reasons to stop looking and join me on the mat for a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Session, which is like a "sacred dance" to release what you have been holding onto, that which has been holding you back.

Have you ever thought there must be something that goes beyond the gimmicks you see everywhere?  Maureen had tried many of those gimmicks, and failed many times.  Instead, she offers an approach that helps people embrace self-acceptance, understand the science behind toxicity and that chronic pain in the physical body is many times due to not only external influences. Again, being "healthy" is not just about looking good on the outside. Looking good on the surface comes along with feeling good on the inside.

“I started my journey to Wellness in 1996 when I stepped into my first yoga class in Chicago.  I was sore 6 hrs after that class and I could barely move for 3 days. In 1999 I started taking Aikido, and then Yoga more consistently. In 2006 I decided to enter the Biotechnology arena as a Technical Sales Representative, and with that lifestyle, the traveling, and meetings I found it difficult to maintain a healthy routine.  Until 2013 I was on and off the path of wellness, I had a great job in the industry but it wasn't fulfilling my heart and soul.  I had reached rock bottom personally. But then I woke up -- and identifying my Soul's purpose helped me step back on the path, and this is where I reside today. 

It is helping others on the journey of self-realization, and releasing the suffering of the past so that change can happen, that is what I am drawn to do. I offer this through SomaVeda® Thai Yoga and the other healing modalities I have been trained in. I am here as a humble servant to those who are ready to make a shift.”
