I am so grateful for my time with Melody and the excellent care and attention I received. Melody and I worked together over the course of more than 4 months, using hypnosis to access relaxation, self confidence, and better body image. Melody is an exquisite listener - grounded, caring, & compassionate. I felt beautifully tended to and supported. Most of all I felt such safety in working with Melody. I have struggled in the past with finding practitioners with whom I’ve felt comfortable, and Melody is truly a gem. She offered such presence to meet me where I was at, and simultaneously gently guided me along to allow for exploration and my learning to unfold. I felt no judgement from her - just acceptance and kindness, ready to hold space for whatever I would be bringing to the session & however I was arriving that day. Thank you Melody!
I had the immense pleasure to work with Melody twice over the last few months and both times were illuminating and cathartic. Her melodic voice and calming energy were immediately felt even though our sessions were taking place virtually. We had an instant connection and I learned so much from her both times. Despite the fact that we couldn’t physically touch, she had inventive techniques that transcended the traditional ways we manifest touch and after our sessions, I walked away feeling calm, secure and satiated. I had doubts naturally since this was my first experience doing a virtual cuddling session, but the experience far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend giving her a try.  She is incredibly open, a great listener, responsive to your needs, compassionate and nurturing.
Melody’s Healing Touch, combined with Taoist erotic massage session exceeded my expectations! I went in with the goal of opening up about my sexual practices and learning Taoist techniques. In addition to achieving these goals, Melody unblocked my Chakras and aided in relieving chronic pelvic pain. Melody was extremely welcoming. Her warm, friendly demeanor made me feel exceptionally comfortable. I knew I could trust her with my secrets. Melody is incredibly gifted at energy transference. The visceral feeling when she cleared my Chakras was concrete; I felt negative energy leaving and my body opening.

Somatic Sex Education ~~ Spring/Summer Special!
A place to experience being deeply present and tuned in to your body, noticing your desires and sensations, speaking clearly about touch, and accessing pleasure as a healing resource. Using breath, sound, movement and touch, this transformative work helps desire, joy and pleasure be more present in your everyday life. It is especially effective for trauma healing, letting go of shame and judgment, and reconnection with your core being. Body-based experiences support you in developing presence within your body, opening interior awareness, and learning how your body can feel more and more alive. Breath, movement, noticing, boundary-setting, communication, the anatomy of pleasure, sensate focus, massage, and other body-based teaching provide safe, compassionate support of your intentions. These science-based embodied practices address trauma, support healing, and help you orient toward pleasure as a healing resource. I help to recognize and support releasing shame, judgmental attitudes, and misinformation from cultural and media messages about sexuality. Sessions can also be a safe place for you to experiment with and explore kink/BDSM. There is time for savoring and integration. We'll talk about practices and resources you can use at home (homeplay), to support your desires and intentions.​ Staying Safe during Covid: Safety is a prerequisite for pleasure! I am fully vaccinated and boosted. I'm only seeing clients in-person who have been vaccinated and provide proof in the form of their vaccination card or Excelsior Pass. Not yet vaccinated? I can support you with a virtual session. For established clients, shorter or longer sessions are available. Discounted session packages are available, to support the amazing healing and unfolding that can happen with a series of sessions. You can read more about this on my website: https://www.bodysouljourney.com/services-8

Massage for Couples ~~ Spring/Summer Special!
An exquisite, extra special experience for you and your beloved!  It brings me great joy to make a contribution to the beauty and wonder that you share.   Deepen your intimacy. Learn skills for talking about, offering and receiving touch, and asking for your desires. Each of you will receive a four-handed sensual massage, with my guidance, so that you both experience giving and receiving deep pleasure, and expand your touch skills. Luxuriate in a hot towel rubdown after each massage, to enhance the pleasure for each of you. You are welcome to stay in the space after your 3 hour session, to enjoy private time for cuddling, savoring, and enjoying a delicious snack. You can look at the session space here: https://bit.ly/Session-Room. I recommend you set up a free call first, for us to meet and talk about what you are looking for, so you can feel into whether it feels right to work with me. I accept other payment arrangements than the credit cards through Heal.me. We'll have a check in during the first part of the session. I'm happy to provide snacks and drinks that you would find particularly delicious, and to arrange for just the kind of music or sound background that would delight you. During my Spring/Summer Special, I'm offering this at a $100 discount (normally $600). I would be honored and delighted to share this special experience with you.

Learn More About Melody Joyce - Healing Through Pleasure

About me

As a coach and educator, I offer you information, resources, and body-based practices that soothe your nervous system and promote living in a more fulfilling way. I fully support and guide you in the expansive and juicy process of healing through pleasure.

Listen and learn more about what I do: https://bit.ly/MJPodcastInterview. It was my pleasure to speak with Tom Fuld on his "Conversations With Healers: the Pandemic Episodes" podcast.

I used to be afraid that sex was always going to be painful, and I'd be burdened by difficult experiences from early life/early adulthood. Somatic sex education, a compassionate, celebratory, trauma-informed modality, changed my life! I'm discovering levels of pleasure and ecstasy that continue to amaze me. I am excited to share this with you, along with other complementary modalities I've learned, including hypnosis, professional cuddling, Neuro Affective Touch, and energy medicine. Kink/BDSM have been a wonderful part of my journey, and I'm happy to provide a safe place for you to learn about and explore kink. I also love guiding couples in massage, where you each receive and give one another the gift of pleasure.

"Melody is a rare combination of extreme intelligence, a loving, compassionate spirit, and the abilities of a talented, highly trained and informed, nonjudgmental practitioner. On a scale of 5 stars, I’d give her 10." ---- Barry C

My Philosophy of Care

My work is grounded in the principles of consent, safety and science. We'll move slowly enough to really notice, stay safe, and feel deeply. Research shows that pleasure is healing, and that neural pathways can be rewired to orient toward pleasure rather than stress, resulting in increased health and happiness and better relationships.

My intake form provides information and questions for you to reflect on before we meet: https://bit.ly/MelodyIntake.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

We'll talk about your sexual and relationship history, your health, & your intentions. I'll guide you in using body-based tools (breath, sound, movement, imagination and touch) to support you in being present in your body and increase your capacity for pleasure.

I'll provide body-based experiences (e.g. cuddling/massage/hands on practices) for noticing what's going on in and feel safe in your body. There is time for savoring & integration. I'll provide "home play" resources for you.

My Inspiration

My own healing journey brought me here. I began exploring my sexuality in my 30's. My path wound its way into kink, energy medicine & body-based sex education. My first embodied workshop blew me away. I thought "WOW!! This stuff changes people's lives. THIS is what I must do."

I feel deep compassion for others seeking more for their sexuality, and deep awe & joy as I witness their transformation. I'd love to share this with you!

Blessings,
Melody

Melody is The Real Deal! Approachable, non-judgmental, pleasant, nurturing and open-minded, Melody is the the safe space I’ve been searching for to help me with my challenges (e.g. self-love, intimacy, sensuality, pleasure). I am prone to avoidance and resistance to being vulnerable and I am so thankful I kept my initial appointment instead of cancelling out of fear. With Melody, all my preconceived areas of concern never materialized. We did an assortment of different exercises for 2 hours over ZOOM and the time flew by! Melody put me so much at ease that I could have stayed on for another hour or two. Her extensive training in various areas and fantastic listening skills make her an excellent guide. I feel like we are co-collaborators and that’s exactly what I wanted! There is no hierarchy of power. We are equals. Melody followed up our session with an email list of exercises for me to try and insisted I only do whatever feels manageable. No worries about doing anything right or enough or at all. Melody is intelligent, generous and compassionate -- and I am THRILLED I had the courage to let her into my life.
Melody lead us through a wonderful visual mediation and emotional release session. She is so kind and helpful. Everyone has questions and can benefit from help with relationships and sensuality. Getting another perspective on important issues can make a lasting impact on current and future relationships and self love.
