About Me

Jonathan has learnt and practiced Reiki for over 20 years, he considers himself a healing facilitator, here’s why…

Jonathan Stuart

Jonathan started training in a Western style Reiki in 1998. This was after being gifted a treatment and being interested in alternative health, after years suffering from a bad back and undiagnosed digestive issues.

After two years, he became a (Western) Reiki Master Teacher. Subsequently, one of his fellow students was one of the first westerners to be taught by Chiyoko Yamaguchi (3rd generation in the Reiki Lineage) along with Frank Arjava Petter, a world-renowned Reiki teacher, in Japan.

They recommended he attend the first seminar being taught in the UK in 2004 by Tadao Yamaguchi, Chiyoko’s son. Jonathan joined that class and never looked back. He obtained his Jikiden Reiki Shihan (Teacher) status, after a trip to Japan in 2007 to further his education, then taking the course in September 2008. (Official list of teachers #39). 

This was a turning point, “it was like being given exactly what you had been looking for, without knowing you were looking”.

Being handed down the information as it was originally taught, made so much sense. It cleared up any ambiguities and now makes teaching flow correctly and easily. He felt very different from after taking previous courses, and the benefits to him were obvious. Have a look at what others say about him here.

Jonathan teaches all he has learnt, and passing this simple, practical healing method on, with its deep history and meaning, only taught in Jikiden Reiki. 

Note: It is with great respect to Mrs. Hawayo Takata that Jonathan is connected to Reiki because without her efforts, we in the west would not have the opportunity to experience Reiki and to that end, millions have benefitted, thanks to her.

Unfortunately, over time important teachings were changed or left out of her student’s courses (99% of courses taught today). Luckily, the original teachings can now be passed on once more. With huge thanks to Chiyoko and Tadao Yamaguchi.

Jonathan is a very dedicated Reiki master who has been organising the monthly Reiki Share for us for the past years.

Whenever I attend his Reiki Share my enthusiasm & understanding of Reiki principles refreshed and I feel refreshed too.
Above all a very friendly & welcoming atmosphere

Jonathan has a huge passion about Reiki. He is very kind and thoughtful and gentleman. I feel comfortable and always enjoy attending his Reiki share because it has always been a lovely “氣” (Qi energy) each time in a harmonious, friendly atmosphere.

Mrs Beauvais


I really enjoy the Reiki shares as it is a great opportunity to practice and to get together with like-minded people.  The room is a calm and comfortable environment and Jonathan is always helpful and able to advise on best practices.
