“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!”

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 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

“Dr. Melissa is a modern-day medicine woman with a powerful array of knowledge and tools to call upon.  I salute her dedication in cultivating such diverse know-how and talents over many years.

With great compassion, she worked with me to help me find my personal truth in navigating my compulsive overeating and mitigating the ensuing health complications.

She truly is a holistic provider, offering support ranging from concrete nutritional advice to nuanced mind-body support. She helped me create meaningful dialogue amongst the various voices of my psyche to facilitate a process of deep integration.

I also appreciate Dr. Melissa’s intuitive powers; her insight nearly always resonated with my inner wisdom and she helped me gain important perspective regarding many aspects of my life.

Dr. Melissa is a healing force of nature… she lovingly empowers her patients to set themselves free… and I recommend her care with all my heart!”
