I feel so grateful to have found such a profound healer as in Dr. Melissa

“Words like visionary, medicine woman and healer of healers comes to mind when thinking of Dr. Melissa. She…shares with the world what it really means to clear the vessel of dis-ease and trauma in the body and psyche so that we can all truly step into our vibrant radiance.”

–Debora Seidman, writer

Visionary, Medicine Woman and Healer of Healers

“Dr. Melissa Sophia Joy is a highly talented healer. Her power lies in an approach that truly looks at the ‘whole’ person. She skillfully weaves her knowledge of the body with her understanding of the spirit, how they are interconnected, and how they can shift and heal together. I don’t know of any other doctor who can offer powerful tools for changing beliefs and shifting deeply held emotional patterns while at the same time offering solid, tangible support on the physical level with herbs, nutrition and other holistic modalities.

When practicing medical intuition, Dr. Melissa has been spot on about the conditions I have faced—conditions which lab tests later confirmed.

I highly recommend Dr. Melissa to anyone who is serious about healing body, mind, spirit— your whole being!”

–Mandy Snyder

Looking at the Whole Person From Mandy Snyder

“Sometimes we are blessed to find individuals who step up when needed most…amazing souls doing what they have mastered even in the face of danger. Dr. Melissa is one of those souls who I know saved my life.

I first came to Melissa with PTSD…and severe insomnia…she carefully guided me through the process of healing the trauma, diving into the very root of the insomnia, all the while addressing my many other health issues.

With her unwavering dedication to my healing, I was able to make it through, even while dealing with a prognosis of my imminent death from my gastroenterologist and oncologist. She worked carefully with my Kaiser doctors to bring me to a state of harmonious health. I have a deep appreciation for the amazing light that is Dr. Melissa; she is truly a radiant Soul, and master of many powerful modalities to bring about a deep healing.”

Dr. Melissa Saved My Life From Kevin Nave

“I have worked with dozens of spiritual masters and healers over the last 25 years and have had the most profound healings and experiences with Melissa Sophia Joy, ND. She has helped me enter the most incredible places of deep peace and personal power that my life has been transformed as a result. I feel stronger, more grounded and even more optimistic about the future. I highly recommend working with her.”

Profound Healings and Experiences with Melissa Sophia Joy From Tiffany Bass-Bukow

“I have worked with Dr. Melissa for the last year on healing my fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and psoriatic arthritis. I sought her out to get a sense of how an alternative medicine practitioner might approach my illnesses because though traditional medicine had helped me, it hadn’t healed me.

“To my surprise, Melissa invited me to entertain the smallest of doubts about my belief that I could not heal. She prescribed supplements and flower essences, and, more importantly, worked with me on the energetic and emotional components of my illness.

“I have found Melissa to be a loving, supportive presence and a gifted healer. Under her care, I have transitioned off of ten of the prescription medicines I was taking, and for the first time since my diagnosis of fibromyalgia eight years ago I awaken each day with a sense of hope.”

A Loving, Supportive Healer From Maya P.

“I think of Melissa as my ‘one-stop’ health care provider. She has an extraordinary breadth of knowledge, both medically from a naturopathic perspective, but also very knowledgeable about allopathic medicine.

In addition, she adds a profound intuitive clarity in which she is able to see the deeper causes of health issues. She has the ability to guide one through the difficult root cause and core issues (in a way) that…feels supported and safe.

She has taught me how to navigate into the deeper more difficult parts of myself, both in this life and past lives. Most of our work has been by telephone, yet she has the capacity to be totally ‘present,’ more than any other healthcare practitioner I have worked with.

My health issues (adrenal dysfunction, tiredness and cancer) have improved, and I am feeling strong and more clear about my life path.”

Being Totally Present From E.C., PhD Clinical Psychologist

“Enter Dr. Melissa, a breath of fresh air. I’ve learned from working with her that illness is not a battle against ourselves, but an opportunity to realign ourselves with wholeness and our higher purpose in life.”

Illness is Not a Battle Against Ourselves From Rachel

“When I came to see Dr. Melissa, I was very sick and my quality of life was quite poor. I was living with chronic pain, illness, fatigue, severe anxiety, insomnia and depression.

Dr. Melissa not only helped me to treat my complex symptoms, but she was able to give me empowering insight into their root causes. Dr. Melissa was the first doctor I’d seen who truly understood how sensitive I was, and based on that she was able to create a healing protocol that supported holistic healing without over stressing or exacerbating my conditions.

Dr. Melissa’s personality also helped to facilitate my healing because I was quickly able to trust her, and I don’t trust easily. Because of my work with Dr. Melissa, I am no longer stuck in a cycle of victim-hood with my illnesses, and I am continuing to make progress with my healing.”

Understanding Sensitive Patients From Kathleen

“I danced into Melissa’s presence with a deep sense of feeling lost. The emotions of anxiety, worry, stress, and dissatisfaction rippled throughout my being. I held it together for a while on the outside, but on the inside, I knew something had to shift.

From our very first meeting, my body slowly began relaxing. We worked with my eating habits, birth control options, and the inner crew that resides in my (head.) From this space, I slowly started to peel away the layers that held me hostage.

I am now in the process of rebuilding the life and body THAT I CHOOSE. Melissa’s commitment to this work is shown through her ability to listen deeply, reflect purely, and hold space for profound transformation. She has been a blessing on this path that I call Earth School.”
