Somatic Reawakenings - Restore Your Body. Reclaim Your Life - about Alana Burton

Hello, I’m Alana.

My life’s journey is a testament to the resilience of the human body. Born with spina bifida occulta and a congenital spondylolisthesis that went unknown for many years, I faced back and sciatic pain from a young age. At 16, a car accident led to spinal fusion surgery and years of living with persistent pain.

In 2008, a slip on the ice intensified my suffering, pushing me to seek relief. Turning to a yoga therapist, I found remarkable pain reduction and improved mobility after just one session. Today, my personal experience fuels my dedication to helping others achieve a pain-free life through a unique blend of therapeutic approaches.

“And I said to my body. Softly. ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath. And replied. ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this.’”

–Nayyirah Waheed

Client Testimonials

“When you live with pain for so long, you forget what it is like to live without it. You don’t realize the restrictions that come little by little. You don’t notice the things you have to give up bit by bit. But when the pain is finally gone, you are free of so many things – limited mobility, exhaustion, worry. You get the life back you didn’t realize you lost.”


“I no longer need to balance on the walls and plan each footstep on the stairs, my strength is returning, and my use of pain medication is less than half of what it was.”


“Thank you thank you! I have to tell you, I found myself in spontaneous fits of laughter throughout the day yesterday and even into the night – gleeful that the pain was all but gone. Today, yes, I seem a wee bit stiff… but, believe me, that’s nothing!”
