Qualifications: 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.

Healing through Katina Demetriou, Reiki Master/Teacher
I cannot praise Katina, and the centre enough. Opening myself up to new ways of thinking, embracing Katina’s loving guidance and practices, has truly given me a new, bright perspective on my path forward. Everyday is a new blessing. Thank you. Oct 2019
Katina has a lovely relaxed warmth that puts you immediately at ease. The treatment itself is like a tonic for the soul. Just beautiful and down with sincerity. Liz L Oct 2019
I have just shared the most transformational time of my life with Katina on a spiritual retreat in Mykonos, Greece. With heartfelt gratitude and thanks to you Katina and all the souls who were with me on this week’s journey. I will be eternally grateful for all the healing treatments, the astrological workshops, yoga and the powerful discussion that took place. It was an incredible journey Katina and I will be forever grateful to you and your energies. You have taught me so much and are a true healer. Anyone who is lucky enough to meet you and heal alongside you is truly very lucky 🙏I am now back at home in the UK with my precious crystal babies following my new path that is no longer being suppressed. With love and thanks, Torty July 2019
I met Katina while on vacation in Mykonos, Greece and it felt like I've known her forever. She's such a caring and talented healer. I had no experience with healings before and did not know what to expect, but I was in really good hands.
The whole experience was very relaxing and spiritual, I could feel the energy vibrating through me the entire time, and all my worries and negative thoughts started slowly fading away. I highly recommend this kind of healing therapy, which leaves you at peace and wanting more.
Thank you so much Katina for everything!! Aug 2019
Having no pre conceived idea of what to expect, entering a quiet room with Katina telling me to close my eyes and do some deep breathing. I started to focus on the soothing music surrounding me, with the Tibetan singing bowls, letting go of negative feelings and thoughts. My body felt calm and moved through a transition of deep relaxation, my mind did not wander just stayed in this beautiful state of tranquility.
I wanted to stay in this wonderful almost sleeping experience until I heard the gentle words of Katina with her hands almost touching the sides of my hair and telling me it was time to wake up. Can I say, I can highly recommend this healing therapy. Thank you Katina, you have special gifts of comfort and compassion which is felt throughout this amazing healing experience.

Katina is a highly spiritual soul and so considerate of others. Naturaly a patient, giving and nurturing teacher, I was able to learn so much from her. Reiki treatments were deeply relaxing and powerfully healing as I could feel immediate shifts and results from them, as well as so calming and peaceful! Thank you for the reiki healings, for your teachings during our quality time in Mykonos together during dinners & walks and for the chance to connect and bond with such lovely people on the retreat. (All so special). Such a spiritual, uplifting & enlightening journey! I learnt more about myself & direction in life than I honestly thought I would and in a short space of time! So grateful. Thank you. Aug 2019
Katina is an amazing empath and healer and her compassion let’s your soul and body relax in a way that allows for profound healing. June 2019

I've never experienced Reiki healing like the session at Geelong Wellbeing Centre. For the first time in a long while I am ready to accept and move on. I will be back for more sessions. May 2019
Katina you are an extraordinary healer ; the universe blessed me the day we met, you gave me your gift of Reiki and told me you would find my birth mother who gave me up for adoption when I was 10 days old. 2 months later I spoke to my biological sister and my niece. Six months later I was in England surrounded my my brothers sisters and family. Thank you Katina I am forever grateful Oct 2017
I have enjoyed the soothing, rejuvenative benefits of Katina's healing hands, but what she has done for my mother, Audrey, is miraculous. Mum is 87, frail and suffers pain and mobility problems. The regular healing sessions she has with Katina have helped her enormously. She feels so much better - the pain subsides, she moves more freely, she is re-energised. Katina is a beautiful woman with a tender, nurturing manner and a healing gift. We wholeheartedly recommend her. Sept 2018
Last week I had a healing with Reiki Master, Katina Geelong Wellbeing Centre
After a lifetime of pain and trauma I'd been holding onto a lot of unnecessary junk. Her healing helped me to let go of some of that junk. She guided me into relaxed state, while using a sound bowl and reminded me I am loved and I am safe. I've felt so much lighter and been able to focus more without the added anxiety. In turn that's helped with my chronic pain as well. I highly recommend Katina, not only is she amazing at what she does she will put you at ease as soon as are in her presence. Nov 2018
Katina is a gift to the world. She is an integral healer and beautiful visualizer of potential. Her caring approach is nurturing and effective.Thankyou !!! Sept 2018
Hi, I had a beautiful experience using the Reiki healing at the centre. I will admit I was previously dubious of the outcome, but after the healing I felt uplifted, lighter and calmer. Strange but true and all I had to do is lye there and let the healer work on me. I have had another session to clean up the residual (as you would expect after 40 years of sh*t) and I felt even more calm. I suggest you try it if you don't feel your self, always angry, things just aren't going your way. And its private. Thanks Katina. Dion June 2016
A reiki master, Katina provided me with great relief and clarity. From the moment I walked in the door she made sure I was as comfortable and content as possible. Even letting me bring my dog Spot into the healing, making me feel so much more at ease and allowing Spot to participate in the healing as well.
The healing itself was remarkable, I never thought it would be as powerful as it was. I can't recommend Katina enough and her services. I walked into my healing feeling so out of place, but left feeling great relief like weights have been lifted off me and I can finally think and concentrate again.
I have never felt the need to write a review on anything before, but my experience with Katina is worth sharing. If you have a chance to meet Katina or are contemplating booking a reiki session, do it - for you. July 2018
I was very fortunate to meet Katina in Mykonos, thanks to a friend she was visiting ,and to receive a Reiki healing from her at the Villa Konstantin. She is a beautiful soul and her healing comes from the heart. She was immediately able to pinpoint what I needed and to guide me on my journey. I felt a strong soothing and invigorating sensation during the session. I also liked that she used crystals to focus on specific areas. At the end I felt light and rejuvenated. And when I looked at myself in the mirror my eyes had changed colour, they were at least two shades lighter. I was literally looking at a new me. It was unbelievable! The days that followed I noticed a shift in my mindset and that I had released some mental blockages. Feeling opened to give and receive love. Katina, i can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me on so many levels. June 2018
Katina is a truly wonderful and gifted healer and I couldn’t recommend her more for an amazing healing session 🙏 March 2019
Thank you once again Katina for all your help and support. You are a wonderful Healer and it's so fantastic to see how much you are doing for others in need. You are like a sunflower, made up of intricate parts each representing all your life’s experiences both joyous and sad which, over a lifetime become seamless and transform into a uniform state, forming the core of your Being and becoming a life healing force which, like the sunflower becomes a source of nourishment, promoting new life to the bee and its colony. The family of bees, as with the people who are blessed to know you, then share the source of this life force to other insects who visit the sunflower, sharing the nectar peacefully under the majestic eternal wings of one glorious vision of LOVE and HOPE. Thank you for your Selflessness. Your Faith. Your Desire for a more just and humane world where Life and Goodness flourish into fields of everlasting sunflowers🌻🌻🌻 Sept 2018
Katina, you bring a calm to those who need inner balance. Your spiritual qualities marry perfectly with the healing you give. I have always felt renewed, balanced and an inner connection with the 'self' after your healing; thank you. I have learnt so much from you and have grown spiritually; thank you again. For those seeking a holistic, natural and spiritual avenue for healing etc, you are simply first class, unique and very special. Sept 2017
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the Geelong Wellbeing Centre for a Reiki session. While I went in with a healthy deal of scepticism, I decided to keep an open mind about the session. I regrettably arrived late, but Katina did a great job of calming me down and getting me into the right state of mind that Reiki session requires.
Once I was lying down and comfortable, I gradually drifted into a state of physical relaxation. I was in my head for the first few minutes (as this was a new experience for me), but Katina soon managed to put me in a mental state of relaxation as well. Herein, I believe, lies the key to the success of Reiki. In my opinion, Reiki can best be described as a minimalist massage that focuses primarily of the state of consciousness rather than on the manipulation of muscles that a normal massage entails, although physical interaction is crucial to the process.
If you've ever considered Reiki but you're unsure of it's merit, I can personally say that the experience was undoubtedly a very positive one. I left the session feeling undeniably more relaxed and energised. I felt motivated to do things that I otherwise wouldn't have and I had a tangible sense of wellness and contentedness. People can argue all day about the empirical efficacy of such treatments; however, whether mystical or via placebo, my personal experience certainly had me feeling better than when I went it. March 2017
I can't put into words how amazing my experiences have been at the Geelong Wellbeing Cente. I have had received Reiki treatments from Katina on a number of occasions, each of which have been astounding. Katina has an intuitive nature about her, and is able to pick up on areas of my life which may need some work. After my visits to the Geelong Wellbeing centre I always feel uplifted with a new sense of direction in my life. The centre is clean and beautiful with a relaxing atmosphere which will make you want to come back again and again. Thank you for the amazing treatments, I will be back soon! June 2017

I was very fortunate to have found this tranquil beautiful place. The Reiki healing is a rejuvenating experience each and every time. Katina and all the wonderful people who work within the Geelong Wellbeing Centre are friendly and welcoming. A calm soothing energy emanates from and surrounds this Centre and all who practice within it. I can highly recommend. Nov 2017
Thank you Katina for the amazing hour I spent with you.
What a great way to start the weekend with a Reiki session followed by a Massage. I would highly recommend the team at the Geelong Wellbeing Centre. Looking forward to seeing them again soon. June 2016
I have received treatments from practitioners of the Geelong Wellbeing Centre for a period of two years. The treatment is provided in a caring and sensitive manner. In particular I have gained valuable relief from treatment through the Reiki program. I find that that the treatment gives me a calm and relaxed feeling. The facilities are well presented which enables a positive atmosphere to be provided. I have recommended the Centre’s services to family and friends.

I have been a client at the Geelong Wellbeing Centre since 2012 (previously known as Geelong Beauty & Wellbeing Centre).
During the last three years I have experienced a number of Beauty Treatments including Remedial, Relaxation Massage and Reiki Healing. I find the therapists friendly, caring, knowledgeable and sensitive to my wellbeing.
The ambience of the Centre exudes the feeling of calmness, relaxation and healing which is intrinsic to my needs and which also helps reduce the stress in my life. I leave the Centre feeling uplifted, rejuvenated and calm.
I am extremely satisfied with my treatments and members of my family have also received therapy as a result of my recommendation. May 2016
Katina is one of the most kind hearted, dedicated, genuine and relaxed individuals I have ever met and the Geelong wellbeing Centre is a reflection of her .
Thank you for having a positive influence on my life. Oct 2016
