Karina is a practising Reiki Master and wholistic relaxation massage, who combines these modalities to create intuitive healing sessions.
"I hold the core belief that everyone has a purpose and gift to share in the healing of Earth just waiting to be uncovered. At this point in time, with the reality of the climate emergency, we need to awaken our wild and whole selves so we can show up fully in the world. I help support people to find their purpose in this time in history."
Who am I?
I am simply a human being trying to be the best version of myself and be fully awake to what is happening to our world.
I am a fiercely passionate wild woman who's home is the ocean, and have dedicated myself towards the healing of the earth and those it nurtures.
