Get the epic self love life you deserve
Release sexual trauma and body shame, feel delicious in your own skin, become the bold and confident lover that drives your partner wild...
....and stop letting external validation run your life
You'll never get enough of what you don't really want. External validation to feel sexy and lovable is one of those things.
Do you ever feel like you're draining your energy and bank account with restrictive diets, exhaustive exercise, beauty services and new clothes...
...only to find yourself rejecting the sexual advances of your partner, or having sex that doesn't actually feel good to you, because after all that effort, you don't actually feel connected to your body and sexuality?
It makes you wonder:
What's the point of all that energetic investment, if it doesn't lead to more intimacy, more pleasure, and a deeper physical connection with the actual human you get naked with?
It's a trap we've all fallen into. I'll be the first to admit it.
It's so easy to get addicted to the external validation, equating sexual fulfillment with the feeling of being wanted...
...while being completely detached from what YOU actually want, what turns YOU on, the seduction and touch that YOUR body requires to melt into deep orgasmic states of bliss!
We treat our bodies and sexuality like assets to be leveraged, like they aren't ours to enjoy in and of themselves...
It's possible to break the validation addiction (and easier than you think!), but you have to be willing to give up the game other people are playing, and rewrite your sexual reality from the inside out
through sexual embodiment.
How a sexual embodiment practice transforms your life
Expand your capacity to channel love & pleasure in your body
Feel sexier and more erotically alive in your own skin
Become a magnet for lovers who adore you in your sexual power
And what exactly is a sexual embodiment practice?
It's anything that combines an intention to connect with yourself and your body + activation of your sexual energy
the yoni egg
Sacred sexuality tools like these are the BEST way to release internalized sexual shame and insecurity, and start tapping into the body's true capacity for love, pleasure, and spiritual awakening!
This is how the things you WANT to believe about yourself actually become your embodied TRUTH.
These are the same practices that I use with my private clients and their results have been phenomenal! See for yourself:
" Michelle focused mainly on my desires, and got me to recreate these experiences on a somatic level in my own body. It was so incredible to understand that these experiences are always within me and that I can recreate them at any time."
"Michelle's beautiful voice keeps me focused and feeling safe as I explore parts of myself that may feel triggering. Without pushing, she guides me through my triggers and I leave my sessions feeling relaxed and integrated... I know these sessions will allow me to learn to love my body more and more!"
"I wanted to work through my resistance to self-pleasure and experience orgasm without a vibrator. I got what I wanted!"
"One of my biggest takeaways will be how my vastly improved relationship with my body has in turn vastly improved my relationship with the divine.
I find that I'm no longer so focused on my appearance and therefore have capacity for far deeper experiences."
"The home play sessions that Michelle sent me each week were truly magical and enabled me to reconnect to my inner radiance and cultivate an inner ecology of self love and compassion.
Thank you, Michelle! You have been the catalyst for so much beautiful transformation in my world."
"Michelle's body and heart wisdom and masterful guidance have allowed me to expand my frame of reference around love, cultivate a deeper connection to my partner, and begin to break free from shame.

About Your Coach
I'm Michelle Martinez, MPH
I believe that sexual wounds, insecurities, and trauma are a public health issue, a root cause of the suffering and disconnection we experience as humans today.
And I believe that deep, connected, full-of-love sex can actually support the spiritual evolution and enlightenment of humanity. So that's what I'm here to serve.
You can learn more about my story here.
My coaching methods have evolved from three key influences:
I have over 10 years' experience working in psychology research labs, exploring the benefits and mechanisms of change for therapies such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Dialectical Behavior Therapy on trauma and depression, which now inform my coaching practice.
With a PTSD research team in Seattle, I co-authored 16 publications on mindfulness- and meditation-based therapies for PTSD, appearing in the American Journal of Medicine, Medical Care, the Journal of Clinical Psychology, the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, and the Journal of Traumatic Stress.
I also co-authored a chapter on Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in the 4th Edition of Integrative Medicine.
I completed a 600-hour training in the Vital and Integrated Tantric Approach to coaching, with specialized certification in Female Sexuality and Tantric Sex from the Tantric Institute of Integrated Sexuality.
Although I am not a tantra expert or guru, many of my coaching tools draw from concepts and practices learned in my studies of tantra and neo-tantra.
An App-Enhanced Coaching Experience
Becoming BodyWise requires a deep commitment to connecting with your body on a consistent, regular basis.
In a world that bombards us with enticing ways to distract ourselves on social media, numb out with TV, and the constant pressure to hustle and achieve in order to get ahead, this is no easy feat!
The BodyWise app is the bridge between your modern, tech-centered lifestyle and your sexually embodied living.
Practice Tracking for Accountability
Each week, you'll have a sexual or spiritual embodiment practice to do in between sessions to bring you into deeper energetic alignment with your erotic truth.
As you track these practices in the BodyWise app, I'll be able to see your entries, so I can celebrate your consistency and help you troubleshoot resistance and logistical barriers if your practice starts to lapse.
In-App Chat for Support Between Sessions
When you have a question or need some extra support between sessions, you can message me directly anytime through the app!
Guided Challenge to Overcome the Time Barrier
The Everyday Embodiment Challenge is included in your BodyWise account to teach you a step-by-step process for establishing a daily practice you LOVE using proven behavior change principles from Tiny Habits.
All bodies, all genders! Some of the audio guides refer to particular parts of anatomy, as they guide you to pay attention to, or touch, certain parts of the body. I have done my best to organize them accordingly so that you can listen to the audio guides that will resonate with your own experience. I work primarily with vulva (yoni)-having humans, so there are many more practices in that category than in the one for penis (lingam)-havers, but that collection will be expanding throughout 2022.
Yes! In fact, every video lesson is downloadable as well!
There is! It includes the Tracking feature, and preview content inside the Practice Library and Everyday Embodiment. Click here to compare features between the free version and the Erotic Alignment membership.
The snake because, in goddess-worshipping cultures, the snake was often revered as a symbol of feminine power and wisdom. And then, probably as part of an intentional effort to erase or demonize the goddess, the snake was written as an evil force that tempts women into WANTING wisdom (the Tree of Knowledge) which leads to the downfall of humankind and makes childbearing painful and everyone ashamed of their naked bodies.
So the snake is there as a reclamation of goddess wisdom, and rejection of the Biblical narrative that would have us believe that our bodies are sources of pain and shame, rather than pleasure and celebration.
And the flower, because one of my first memories of slut-shaming was in a teen bible study church class, where we were basically told that we are like flowers, and every time we have sex with someone, we lose one of our petals, and eventually if we keep whoring around we'll have nothing left to give our future spouses
So reclaiming that imagery as well.
Your sexuality is for YOU.
Own it. Embody it. Love it.
Shedding sexual shame and embodying your most confident, orgasmic, and erotically vibrant self takes an investment of time and personal practice, which is why most people don't do it...
But you aren't most people ;)
And you can use the BodyWise app to begin and sustain a sacred sexuality practice that will transform your experience of sex and your own body forever.
