From a very young age Katina knew that one of her Sacred Gifts was the gift of Service. She had a unique ability in understanding and empathizing with those around her. Her love of creating beauty for others and healing not only their bodies, but their spirit and soul, manifested at an early age. During her teen years, she developed severe Cystic Acne. At 14 years old, her family doctor prescribed a series of antibiotics to treat her skin. She knew she was not sick, but the antibiotics made her sick. She started to read everything she could about Acne. Beautiful skin care has been Katina’s passion and mission ever since. Join me and we’ll talk to Katina about the cost of beautiful, both monetary and spiritually.
Katrina Kritikos ~ From a very young age I knew that one of my Sacred Gifts was the gift of Service.
I had a unique ability in understanding and empathizing with those around me.
My love of creating beauty for others and healing not only their bodies, but their spirit and soul, manifested at an early age. During my teen years, I developed severe Cystic Acne. At 14 years old, my family doctor prescribed a series of antibiotics to treat my skin. I knew I was not sick, but the antibiotics made me sick. I started to read everything I could about Acne. I can honestly say my passion for skin care started then.
After College and University, I had to look for a “real” job. I took a placement within a financial institution which I quickly excelled in. The problem was that I did not love it. I knew I was destined for more. I quickly found my passion in Esthetics and have never looked back.
My first business, Ethos the Spa was built in 1997 and had a successful 14 years in business. Ethos was a leader in our industry and in the community.
I had weekly show with Rogers Cable Television. The A Channel had me as their monthly contributor, as well as was a guest speaker on several local radio shows.
I was a speaker at our annual Esthetics shows in Toronto and a trainer for a skin care company. I have coached others in our industry.
As my career in Esthetics was expanding, my commitment to my clients had continued to deepen, it is the most fulfilling work that I can do. Being a leader in this industry is a huge responsibility that I do not take lightly. I believe in mentoring not only my staff, but young women looking to grow in this industry. I am chair of South Collegiate Institute Parent’s Association and actively give back to my community. My greatest love is for my boys, who make me want to be a better person.
Etherion Advance Skin Care and Laser Clinic grew out of a need in our community to fuse together the Medical Esthetics with a Holistic Sensibility. As I was training, I quickly realized that our industry was polarized in medical, beauty, or holistic. There was nothing in between. Nothing that balance all three. So, I set out to create a space that encompassed all three elements to skin care. Our highly trained professionals create a relationship with our clients. We search out the answers as to why your skin may be manifesting problems. We address, hormones, stress, relationships, diet, sleep, lifestyle and nutrition. We also know the environment you live in, or work in can also play an important roll in skin health as does our climate. We see each and every client as a whole person. My Staff and I are on this incredible journey with you, we build a relationship and we focus on you, and your skin’s health and wellbeing, we know that no two clients are alike, and each client’s skin had its own story to tell. We listen.
Solving your skin concerns, is our goal.
Bringing back your confidence and allowing you to truly shine in your own healthy, vibrant skin is our mission.
