Jeanie Matteson


Jeanie is a Registered Somatic Therapist with ISMETA, the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association, specifically trained in SomaSoul®, a Reiki Master Teacher in three lineages including Karuna Reiki®, the Reiki for compassionate action, a registered 200 hour yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, and among many other trainings, a Certified Angel Card Reader with Doreen Virtue.  She has a rich background and education in counseling, psychology, expressive arts and healing arts with over 15 years of experience as a healer, mentor, teacher and business owner. She has helped hundreds of clients find and express themselves and begin their journey of true self-discovery, grounded empowerment with clarity, direction and a renewed sense of centered peace.

Jeanie developed Restorative Reiki in early 2000's after she started her private practice as a Reiki Master. Her intuitive skills, education and experience in psychology led her to this unique blend of Reiki and emotional processing. After completing a Master of Arts degree in Music Therapy, she became an adjunct professor at Immaculata University teaching expressive arts and meditation. In 2003 she founded Creative Healing Arts, LLC, continuing her teaching throughout western Pennsylvania.  Opening a holistic center in West Chester in 2005, she led workshops, classes and events, as well as managed employees and other practitioners for 10 years while she continued her private practice and teaching at the center.  Jeanie is presently a Co-owner of Now and Zen Yoga, LLC with Sarah Beck in West Chester.

Having a passion for sharing the joy and healing power of expressive movement and dance, Jeanie has been leading classes such as Shake Your Soul® since 2001. Her classes continue to grow and change with the needs of her clientele, adding new music, new moves and contagious humor and lightness that comes from the grace and ease of many years of experience. 

She also teaches Mindfully Gentle Yoga, referring to it as moving meditation, meaningfully choosing music that helps her students move with breath as they flow in and out of postures.

Jeanie’s mission is to help you enliven your spirit and thrive through a variety of modalities, choosing a specific blend of these modalities that is right for you. She assists you in embodying who you are, accessing your intuitive wisdom and higher guidance leading you to your true purpose with ground, empowerment and a deep sense of peace.

Many have said after working with Jeanie that they can truly move forward in their life with renewed confidence and ease.



Jeanie is a beautifully gifted person. She is intuitive, kind, a fabulous listener, a great healer and a truly loving person. It’s as if Jeanie’s spirit wraps around you like a blanket and comforts you when you need it. During our sessions, I feel like our souls are in harmony, working together to create a peaceful exchange of energy. And when it’s over, I always feel blissful and rejuvenated AT THE END OF EACH SESSION. 

The guidance and messages Jeanie gives me are invaluable. After 4 wonderful years of knowing Jeanie, I am on an entirely new and exciting path. I can’t say enough about the benefits of Restorative Reiki!

Restorative Reiki

Jeanie has such insightful, intuitive guidance – she presents options that did not occur to me, gently steers me back onto the path if I’ve gotten lost, or confirms my own tentative thoughts and gives me the courage to act on them.  Her support provides a safety net that makes it much easier to take the necessary leaps in order to make changes in my life.  Her compassion allows me the space to honestly confront what’s bogging me down; there’s no holding back for fear of being judged for what I say or feel.  I can tell her anything.  Some practitioners have just one approach and they try to squeeze you and your issues into that approach.  Jeanie works with you to find a path that’s appropriate for who you are and how you process things. 


I heartily recommend Restorative Reiki.  I leave every session with a feeling of clarity and centeredness, ready to meet the challenges ahead.  Jeanie’s warmth, humor, insight and empathy will make you feel like you’ve come home.

Restorative Reiki

Yoga Dance makes my soul sing! How lovely to be in a class that lets us all flow together in an energy raising celebration! Laughter fills the room as we twirl & swirl, becoming so light as we release whatever is stuck. Yoga warms us up before dance & calms us afterwards. We leave restored & energetic.

Shake Your Soul®

I have been receiving Restorative Reiki from Jeanie for about 8 months and I am amazed at how much it has changed my life for the better.  The Restorative Reiki has really helped with the anxiety and stress in my life.  It helped me realize what aspects of my life (both presently and in the past) were causing such stress and in turn I have been able to work on these aspects. 

The Restorative Reiki sessions have also given me the confidence in myself to go back to school to pursue a career change, something I never thought I'd be able to do.  I have recommended Jeanie's Restorative Reiki to many of my friends and family and do highly recommend it for everyone.

Restorative Reiki

Jeanie Matteson introduced me to the Somatic Therapy called SomaSoul®. These sessions guide both my personal and spiritual growth.The amazing thing about sessions with Jeanie is how she personalizes each session to meet you where you are. Jeanie has such a strong heart and a patient presence. Her non-judging character allows me to comfortably feel and share my personal emotions.

Rather than sharing verbally, Jeanie often provides colored pastels to express how I am feeling. Through these drawling's, and with Jeanie's guidance I am able to visualize where in my body I hold on to things that hinder my growth. Together we notice, observe and release whatever is not serving me. I’ve never heard of SomaSoul before experiencing it through and with Jeanie. I had no expectations or any limitations for myself, which made me open to experience the possibilities of growth. With the guidance of Jeannie and her SomaSoul therapy I am able to tap into a deeper understanding for myself. I'm excited to continue this journey of growth.

SomaSoul® Somatic Therapy

Restorative Reiki has made a huge difference in my life. I have been seeing Jeanie for Restorative Reiki for over 2 years. Jeanie is so intuitive and I learn something different about myself and how to cope with life during every single session. I feel this type of Reiki is the right type for me because it allows me the chance to have some time at the beginning of each session to talk about what is going on in my life. Jeanie often receives important messages to pass on to me during our sessions based on this upfront discussion. I have noticed a big change in how I approach life’s challenges since I have been going to Restorative Reiki and even though I get out of balance at times, I can recognize it much easier and know what to do to get back in balance. The Restorative Reiki sessions definitely help clear my energy, and my body and mind are always more relaxed after a session. Jeanie is wonderful and I would highly recommend her! Restorative Reiki is an important tool in my discovery and journey through life.

Shake Your Soul® with Jeanie has not only been fun but a terrific work-out too.  I have a Fitbit and I love to see my steps count really go up during her class.  Another benefit is her clientele is there for the same reason I am, so the camaraderie is great.  Jeanie is an excellent teacher, she is truly gifted and talented.  I highly recommend her sessions.

Shake Your Soul®

For years I’ve been seeing Jeanie for Reiki, and love her unique style of practice.  When she added SomaSoul® Therapy, it brought everything to a whole new level.  SomaSoul® is very different, an intense inward journey, but hugely rewarding on the other side.  I’ve definitely felt a shift in my internal energy and emotions.  I feel more consistently grounded, without the stressful highs and lows that used to be difficult for me.  I also love the way Jeanie blends it all together to match my individual needs at each session.  I don’t know what I’d do without her.
