Support for Integrative Healing

Starana provides support for integrative healing and is designed to support clients move through life's challenges with greater ease. Serving those who are undergoing medical treatment for an illness, in a life transition, experienced trauma, in bereavement, facing end of life, or want to improve their overall health and wellness. I can meet each person where they are in their process to ensure needs are met.

In Sanskrit, the word Starana is defined as the act of spreading or scattering.  It is my hope to spread and scatter "seeds" of healing, strength, wisdom, and compassion.

Support includes an integrative use of yoga, reiki, somatic bodywork, energy healing, meditation, mindfulness, and breath work to bring calm and solace to your whole being.

Starana attends to the whole person: emotion, mind, energy, and physical body. I utilize the understanding that healing is not just about treating the physical pain and symptoms.

Through ancient wisdom and scientifically proven practices, Starana’s supportive services help to restore balance of the nervous system and energy body, relieve physical tightness and unease, calm the mind, and soothe emotions. The healing tools used include an integrated use of:  Therapeutic Yoga, Reiki, Somatic Bodywork, Meditation, and Breathing Practices.

Starana’s services are designed to work in harmony and complement other medical procedures, surgeries, and therapies. Through an integrated approach, I help to create an inner environment conducive to balance and healing on every level.

About me

Danielle Thornton, Owner

Wellness Care Doula, End of Life Doula, RYT 500, Reiki Master, Somatic Bodywork Practitioner

My practice provides healing support through the modalities of therapeutic yoga, reiki, somatic bodywork,  guided meditation and visualization, and breathing practices to work with each person's unique needs.  My intention is to be a presence of calm to allow clients to have a safe space to let go, relax, and tap into their own inner potential for healing and growth.

My philosophy is well said through this quote by Maryam Hasnaa: “A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space for you to awaken your inner healer, so that you may heal yourself.” My goal is to empower my clients to tap into the intrinsic knowing that they have the potential to heal themselves. I am serve as a catalyst for this healing.

I believe life transitions can symbolize the death of one chapter of life and allow for the opening of another. This form of death and rebirth can happen many times throughout a lifetime. I hope to facilitate space for this process to happen with grace and ease.

After working in the medical and long-term care settings for 10 years, I found these environments can add stress and discomfort to people who are already facing a challenging experience. I wanted to help, but I first needed to find a way to manage my own stress and unease. This prompted my search for life’s deeper meaning. Through the extensive study of Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama (breath work), Somatic  Bodywork, Mindfulness, Energy Medicine, Consciousness, and Reiki, I have uncovered a renewed authenticity, balance, and fulfillment within myself. It’s my hope to share the transformative power of these practices with clients.
