Jenevie Shoykhet is a Reiki Master trained in the Usui System by her Master, Nicole Duran of Raise the Vibration Studio. Her Reiki training began in 2009 and completed in the summer of 2014.
Jenevie has a fusion style that incorporates her years of Shamanic studies with teachers such as Hank Wesselman and his wife, Jill Kuykendall; Chief Golden Light Eagle; Reverend Jean Holmes; Barbara Morningstar; and many others. Her work in recent years has centered around healing through sensuality and partnership, with an emphasis on women's sexuality.

Reiki is a subtle and effective method of hands-on healing utilized by hospitals such as Johns Hopkins, Stanford, and Kaiser, in which the practitioner gently places her hands on, or just above, various points on the body. It is extremely effective for treating anxiety and stress, accelerated physical healing, pain abatement, and releasing emotional blockages. In a session with Jenevie, she begins by smudging (unless the client is sensitive to smoke and scents) and calls in the directions to access a ceremonial state. Soft music will play as you lay back on the massage table and receive healing touch. In an extended session, she accesses various divination card decks to see what helpers are showing up to be of service, and what messages might want to come through to aid your healing process. Various essential oils might also be employed during treatment unless otherwise indicated.
