Often a new client will contact me with either an undiagnosed ailment or with a comment like “I’m not sure what you can do for me. My friend has been seeing you and she says you have helped her. I don’t know what’s going on exactly, maybe it’s just anxiety that is creating this abdominal pain (diarrhea, constipation, etc)”. Or maybe the potential client says they have had some discomfort ever since they had an abdominal surgery. I have tools for all these folks.

Using the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT) and teaching ATMAT self care techniques, I open up the flow of blood, nerves, lymph and chu’lel (Mayan for energy). I carry Standard Process supplements from Probiotics to Enzymes to mucilaginous foods and herbs, and target the exact nutrition needed for each individual to sooth the inner lining of the digestive tract. And in cases such as infant colic or very sensitive and tender abdomens, the light touch craniosacral therapy can help tremendously!

I have helped people with:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Gut reconditioning
  • Chronic constipation or diarrhea
  • Diverticulitis/Ischemic colitis
  • Food intolerances and celiac

The techniques I use can also help with Crohn’s disease.


“In February of 2007, I began seeing Michelle for general abdominal and bladder challenges. In a few visits, my symptoms began to improve, as I did and continue to do, the self-care she recommended. Her ability to blend knowledge, training and intuitive knowing gives her the capacity to practice abdominal massage with positive results. Her healing abilities are evident.”

“When I first came to Michelle I was in my early 30s and had been having digestive issues for several years. No matter how restrictive my diet and how many medical professionals I saw, I just felt gassy, bloated, and depressed about the prospect of my health and vitality. I was searching for what was wrong with me, at this point not really even believing that I would ever find it.  Michelle helped me to see that my symptoms were signals that my body was out of balance, spiritually and nutritionally. Through her use of Mayan massage and Standard Process supplements I began my journey back to health. Standard Process products served as a direct line for my organs and body systems to once again work in harmony. I can now eat foods I thought I’d never eat again, and as an unexpected bonus, my periods are very regular and almost cramp free!  Michelle has also directed me to products I can give my kids that super charge their immune systems to keep them healthy and happy. It feels so good to be empowered in my body’s health and my overall happiness and I’m forever and ever grateful to Michelle for giving me the tools and knowledge to have that happen.

“Before I started coming to Michelle Brown, I had suffered through over 3 years of persistent diarrhea and bloating that had resulted from a bout of food poisoning.  Almost every day, by mid afternoon, I would feel gassy and uncomfortable and there were many days when I felt so bad I was in bed for much of the day.  I had been to the doctor several times, had undergone a couple of really uncomfortable tests, and they found nothing wrong.  They told me to start taking Benefiber, to use beano and anti-gas medication, none of which made any difference at all.  Probiotics helped a little, but not much. I learned of Michelle through a friend and hesitated going to her for a while because it seemed awfully expensive, and what could she really do anyway?  Well it turns out that what she could really do is what no one else before her had been able to do, and what I thought might not even be possible.  Through regular appointments with her, practicing the mayan massage on myself daily, and taking the natural supplements she gave me to support my body’s systems as it healed, I now lead a transformed life.  Even with seeing such miraculous results in my own body, it still seems magical to me.  My path to healing has been an up and down journey.  Michelle is always there to celebrate each victory, give me insight into why the pitfalls are happening, and to support my own growing intuition about attaining balance in my body and life.”
