Healing through Pleasure

Presence.  Connection. 

More Pleasure.   Deeper Intimacy.  Better Sex.

Welcome!  I'm Melody Joyce.  I honor and celebrate you and the courage it takes to reach for more.  

Are you looking for more touch and intimacy in your life?  Support with sexual difficulties?  I provide compassionate, safe & ethical body-based experiences to help you expand your capacity for pleasure, heal from shame, judgment and trauma, and embrace your wholeness.  I offer non-judgmental, holistic support in many areas, such as:

  • Connecting with body sensations and pleasure

  • Low libido, or libido/desire differences between partners

  • Erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation

  • Healing sexual trauma

  • Releasing shame

  • (re)discovering erotic pleasure in the wake of surgery, an accident, or with aging

  • Developing body acceptance, confidence and love

  • Pelvic pain or numbness

  • Rekindling desire and intimacy in relationship

  • Learning to give and receive, and to speak clearly about giving and receiving

  • Healing childhood trauma, abuse and neglect

  • Experiencing pleasurable touch and non-judgmental acceptance

  • Body and genital dearmouring

  • Yoni massage / genital steaming

  • Learning boundaries and consent

  • Exploring sacred sexuality

  • Personal growth and exploration

  • Learning how to be present for intimacy while clean and sober

  • Anxiety around intimacy and relationships

To learn more about what I do, check out this conversation I had with Gwyn Isaacs in her "What Excites Us" podcast:

Sessions are grounded in safety, clear boundary setting and enthusiastic consent, and can include coaching and practice in breath, movement, body awareness, boundary-setting, communication, anatomy, sensate focus, massage, and other body-based teaching. Our work together is guided by your needs and desires, to nurture, deepen and awaken your felt sense of yourself.   


Together, we work with your body and its innate wisdom, moving slowly and mindfully, to soothe your nervous system and engage your body, mind and spirit in healing and expansion. This transformative work can open possibilities for desire, joy and ecstasy to be more present in your every day life.   


Somatic sex education is a holistic, body-based approach that supports healing, pleasure and erotic empowerment.  It is a client-centered, trauma-informed modality that teaches you to connect with your own body, tune in to desires and create personal pathways to authentic pleasure.  

Is this right for you?  I invite you to a free consultation. It's a great way to talk about what's going on for you, see if we are a good fit, and chat about creating your personal plan for living more fully and pleasurably in your body.
