I went from an amazing career in production, public relations and communication from the likes of global brands such as Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock Cafe, Louis Vuitton to set up a boutique agency for luxury brands like Emporio Armani, Mini Cooper, Habita Hotels, H Stern. Becoming also a well known DJ in the house music scene. My love for music and its power started at a young age.
In 2004 I went through an important life experience making me reflect and decide that my knowledge and experience could be applied to benefit society on a social level and for the evolution of Humanity. Thus I commenced to explore the indigenous cultures and their profound wisdom.
During these years, I have had the honor of walking with different wisdom keepers and Elders from distinct tribes and indigenous cultures, receiving initiations in Shamanic teachings. I underwent a personal self-evolution process and have been studying techniques related to Holistic and Integrative medicine. I received a degree as a Humanistic Musictheraphist, Reiki master, SoundTouch Therapist, Sweat Lodge facilitator, integrating Eastern and Western World practices.
I have spent many years in the study of energy, vibration, sound, music and consciousness, acknowledging that science and spirituality, music and medicine are complementary and belong to a higher level of technology.
I specialize in the art of the singing bowls and Sacred sounds with her own research linking humanistic music therapy and sound therapy and the teachings of ancient civilizations. Sharing sounds, frequencies and vibrations to awaken the memory of our connection with the Divine integrating and expanding awareness for the development of human potential reaching the deep space of the Self to raise the vibration based on universal Love.
My spiritual and human development process is based on my personal path of life, living, learning, walking, risking, falling, evolving, changing, experiencing and accepting myself in order to live in respect and in love with and for all my relations.
May all Sentient Beings Be Happy and Live in Peace.
In the beginning there was sound. Vibration, sound and energy are thus all forms of live manifested. Open up to a shift in consciousness, in the way you relate to yourself, your environment, your surroundings, amongst others and the Universal Laws of nature to recall your Origins.
Institute of Music and Healing Arts for Peace
Born as a dream from a deep calling in my soul, I co-created a Festival of Music and Healing Arts to promote awareness through a multicultural platform.
Xicome (pronounced Shicome) signifies number seven in Nahuatl, indigenous language in Mexico.
The organization is committed to promote peace, art, science, spirituality, awareness, health and wellness, honor millinery cultures, encourage human development and spiritual growth, human rights, investigation and research, and the power of sound and music, in benefit of all sentient beings and groups of society to generate a transformation in the collective and individual consciousness and intelligence to live in harmony and a culture of peace as a Humanity.

I have learned so much from you and your teaching. You are a beautiful soul ! I hope to be in your presence again some day ,maybe on that sacred mountain again ! I love you sister ! Thank you for making a difference in my life !
"I met Michelle in Mexico City at the beginning of my journey in search for alternative ways to cure my genetic disease cystic fibrosis. Michelle introduced me to plant medicines, peyote in particular, but mostly she helped me transition to a new spiritual and holistic way to view and treat my illness.
I did a two day retreat with Michelle - I loved the process that she designed. The first night, she did sound healing and encouraged me to write letters to my loved ones, which turned out to be a very cathartic process. The day after we spent the day preparing for the temascal ceremony and the peyote ceremony.
What I loved the most about working with Michelle is the fact that she personalized the experience for my friend and I. She is so dedicated to what she does and has a deep psychological and spiritual understanding of people. I trusted her completely which to me is the most important criteria when working with any shaman.
I have worked with other shamans since but I will always remember and cherish my experience with Michelle.
y. It is my pleasure to recommend this individual.”
"Conozco a Michelle button ya tiene unos 10 años. En muchas ocasiones me ha dado terapia de reiki y de cuencos. He llegado con ella cansado, triste, ansioso, incluso desesperado, ella me ha tratado en todos mis estados emocionales y ha sido un canal coherente y confiable en mis sanaciones, confío en su capacidad y en su trabajo y he dejado las sesiones con ella siempre sintiendo mis chakras, sintiéndome más leve, más conectado, más en mi centro, he podido sentir mi energía fluyendo al máximo otra vez. He tenido mejores sincronías, mensajes más claros incluso en mis sueños, me he sentido más leve y revitalizado, más claro y más enfocado, me da gusto saber que puedo contar con su amistad y su apoyo y que si voy a una sesión con ella obtendré el resultado que estoy buscando".
