Healing through Pleasure

Presence.  Connection.  Joy. 

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 seeking healing and wholeness, or more joy?  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

  • Healing the imprints of trauma in your body

  • Releasing shame

  • Learning what boundaries and consent feel like and how to create them

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

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

  • Developing body acceptance, confidence and love

  • Pelvic pain or numbness

  • 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

  • Low libido, or libido/desire differences between partners

  • Erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation

  • Rekindling desire and intimacy in relationship

  • Exploring sacred sexuality

  • Personal growth and exploration

  • 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:

In this podcast with Taara, in her Sex Ed for the Modern Bed podcast, our conversation focuses on healing trauma.  You can check  it out on YouTube:

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.   


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

Is working with me right for you?  I invite you to a discovery call. It's a great way to talk about what's going on for you, experience a bit of what somatic work is like, and chat about creating your personal plan for living more fully and pleasurably in your body.
