John Crundall began teaching Reiki in 1991, in partnership with his beloved wife and spiritual teacher, Denise Crundall, who had been traveling across Australia and in California teaching and administering to people with terminal illness. Denise invited John to teach with her as the Reiki expanded into the wider community, to join her on the journey and to help her to train teachers and to work with Volunteers.

John Crundall

Our Reiki Master and Friend

Together they inspired people around the world: teaching in Australia, Canada, USA, Germany, Russia, Austria and Thailand.


In 1991, Denise and John established the Usui Reiki Centre in Melbourne; a healing center which is run entirely by volunteers and funded by donations. To date, more than 30,000 people have received Reiki from the Reiki Centre in Melbourne.


After Denise’s death in June 2002, John continues this work and teaches worldwide. Together with Reiki Master Ellen Rose, they faithfully follow the pattern of Reiki teaching brought to Australia by Beth Gray in 1983 and enriched with Denise’s understanding. Classes are dynamic, fun and full of healing, joy, and self discovery.


John and Ellen’s warmth, wit and wisdom make them gentle and powerful teachers. Their Love for Reiki and this lineage inspire all who step into the energy of Reiki to heal themselves and discover their own spirituality.
