Singer-songwriter, creative arts & sound therapist Melissa Joss brings you MYSHA Music…Sounds to soothe, uplift and unify mind, body, heart & soul. Born in Brisbane, Melissa spent her early twenties performing in venues showcasing alternative 90s original music. At the turn of the millennium, Melissa spent a couple of years in the UK where she took her smooth, rich vocal tones, steel acoustic guitar and contemplative lyrics to audiences around London.
Melissa’s passion for yoga began in the late 90s which saw a distinct shift in musical genres. Since the early 2000s Melissa has been writing and performing her all-original “spiritsongs” for singing and chanting circles and live music events at yoga studios, retreats, festivals, sound healings and concerts up and down the coast.
As well as being a long-time singer songwriter, yoga teacher and ANZACATA registered arts therapist, Melissa also trained with the British Academy of Sound Therapy. She has developed her own unique blend of arts and sound therapy processes using creative arts modalities, neuropsychotherapy and yoga & meditation, called MYSHA (Meditation Yoga Self Healing Arts) Therapy. In her private practice on the Gold Coast, Melissa supports people of all ages to find their uniquely expressive path to wellbeing. She facilitates a weekly women’s creative wellbeing circle, girls group (ages 5-12yrs), 1:1 sessions, yoga class, as well as both participatory sound journeys and sound baths for pure relaxation, using a variety of divine instruments including, true tone crystal bowls, Himalayan bowls, gongs, therapeutic percussion along with piano, guitar and loops.
