Nirvana Healing Center
- Arequipa, Peru Send center a message
We are a new Tantra Healing Center in the volcanic capital of Peru. We are born out of the U.S., Ireland and England. Our vision was to open 2 centers in Peru, one in Cusco and one in Arequipa, but when we first arrived in Lima we were robbed of over 7,000 Euro we brought to start the business.
We had to ditch the idea of Cusco, and after getting enough funds through Crowdsurfing and lots of support through family and friends, we still went for the center in Arequipa. It has been a big challenge starting up this business, with such a rough start, especially not speaking the language! However, we've had a strong team that is making it happen and we're starting to see the fruits of our labor.
We're on the leading edge with bringing Tantra to this part of the world and have a strong determination to share this love, connection and healing here!
Our offerings include, but are not limited to:
Tantra Massage, Prostate Massage, Sex & Relationship Coaching, workshops, vegan cooking, plant medicine, Kambo Ceremony, accommodations, yoga, private events, retreats and more!

Venue HighlightsWe are ideally located in the center of Arequipa, right off the main promenade. Only 4 blocks to the main Plaza de Armas, we are within walking distance to all the sites. Framed by 3 volcanoes and the Andes Mountains, Arequipa is filled with baroque buildings constructed from sillar, a white volcanic stone. Treks to hike one of the magnificent snow-tipped volcanoes is easily accessible.
Peru is known as one of the best culinary locations in the world and the town is marked with gastronomy schools. Arequipa is known for it's cuisine, museum, churches, cathedrals, art and music. Due to its regional cultural features more clearly defined than in the rest of Peru, Arequipa is described as a cultural and natural oasis.
As it is high-altitude at 2,335 m, the climate is mild year-round, with an average of 300 days of sunshine a year! Throughout the year, temperatures do not exceed 25 °C (77 °F) and rarely drop below 5 °C (41 °F).
For an evening out, we're a block from a Latin dance studio, 20 minute walk from a spa and plenty of nearby discotheques.
We can arrange trips to Colca Canyon and white water rafting in the Chili River.
