Katina Demetriou - Founder | Reiki Master | Spiritual Healer | Life Coach | Teacher
- Traditional Usui Reiki Master/Teacher
Born in London, Katina decided to make Australia her home in 1994 after falling in love with the country's natural beauty and relaxed friendly people.
Katina's passion for natural remedies and healing was passed down to her by her mother and grandmother, Katina. All her family chose natural therapies first to help heal medical issues where possible.
In 2001 Katina completed a ‘hands on healing’ course in London, this course changed her life and she started sharing her wonderful experience with others. Katina is a qualified Reiki Master energy healing Practitioner.
Whilst Katina worked at the Geelong University Hospital, witnessing the pressure of overworked staff and emotional pressure on families, she decided to open a Wellbeing Centre close to the hospital, where people could come in to meditate or use other holistic services offering peace and relaxation.
She has enjoyed volunteering for St. John’s Ambulance in London, the Barwon Health Foundation and Reach with the late Jimmy Stynes.
In 2013 Katina joined the choir “Kwaya” and travelled to Uganda volunteering with the orphanages and schools, she then travelled onto Madagascar where she stayed at the Greek Orthodox Mission who run 40 orphanages. Each morning approximately 1000 street orphans would arrive to be given a meal.
The Centre has provided complimentary massage services to staff and visitors for a gold coin donation at the Geelong University Hospital. Funds raised have been shared with the Special Care Nursery, Uganda and Madagascar.
Katina feels grateful being able to contribute and being part of the community, she thanks every one who has helped participate with fundraising over the years.
