Katina believes that the body has the ability to heal itself though touch. This can be accomplished by connecting to the life's force through mediation, and relaxation. Hot stones, aroma therapy, and soothing sounds can be used to help facilitate the transition to a relaxed state of being.
Katina is also a Certified Medical Support Clinical Hypnotherapist. She attended the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in the summer of 2013. With this training Katina is now able to coach her clients in achieving their personal goals. Hynpotherapy is a way for clients to get in touch with their emotions which may hender them in achieving a goal because they may have given an event a story that is not true in reality. Once these emotions are addressed clients can now focus on celebrating thier true self. This inturn helps clients to create new behaviors that can bring about a new desired outcome.
