Reiki Healing Therapy

"Reiki Healing Therapy is a very specific form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, as in “laying on of hands.” Reiki Healing Therapy can also be done “long-distance,” as a form of prayer. According to many versions of its origin, Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese seeker of spiritual truths, brought the Reiki Healing Therapy method into human awareness in 1922 after a deep spiritual experience. He is said to have begun teaching others after a serious earthquake hit Japan and he felt urged to spread his knowledge.

In a Reiki Healing Therapy session, the practitioner is seeking to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The intention is to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing."


We offer different types of therapeutic and relaxing massages. The cost depends upon the practitioner and the time for the massage.

Pete received a 30 hour Thai Yoga Massage training with Ivan Medici in 2014 and since then has continues his practice and given around 20 Thai massage sessions. Although his training was short and Pete is still learning (reflected in the price he charges), the recipients of his Thai Massages have always made complimentary comments afterwards.

TUI NA MASSAGE with Ma Prem Neelam

Tui na massage is an Oriental Bodywork Therapy which has been used in China for over 2,000 years.  It is the oldest massage used in the traditional Chinese medicine. Tui na literaly means "push and grab". This technique stimulates acupunture points by using pressure. It balances the flow of "Chi" the vital force in the body and harmonizes its natural energy flow.

This massage helps to heal pain in the neck, back, muscular pain, constipation, menstrual pain, etc.  It is a healing medicinal massage that liberates blocks of energy in joints and tense muscles.

Tibetan Singing Bowl Sound Healing

For centuries, the Tibetan people have practiced sound healing and consciousness transformation with a musical instrument known as a “singing bowl”. Modern science now reveals the healing secrets of these mystical metal bowls.

"With just one strike the teaching, the dharma, opens in front of you. With just one strike? Yes. That is all that is required in order for you to start learning your inner truth – who you really are. This is the main purpose of the Tibetan Singing Bowls and why they were created." - More Here

The resonance produced by our hand-crafted bowls can measurably improve human immune function, lower heart rate and blood pressure, soothe pain in cancer patients, and drastically reduce stress levels. Indeed, the bowls dissipate stress to such a tremendous degree that the body becomes a perfect receptacle of deep healing.

We have a beautiful set of 9 bowls at The Sanctuary imported from Nepal, the biggest of which weighs 7 kgs.

"The Tibetan Bowl Therapy session I had with Peter John Adams from The Sanctuary was one of the best sessions I ever had in my life & I would highly recommend it. Pete had 5 or 6 bowls that were all different sizes & he made different sounds with each one. Then he put some on a few of my chakras as you can see from the photo ha ha. He also shaked some beads. Omg it was so amazing between the sounds & vibration running through my body. I was feeling really low/depressed for a few days before the session & it really took me out of it & raises my vibrations. I would highly recommend it for everyone to try. Pete was a fabulous & well experienced therapist with Tibetan Bowls. Thanks again Pete I will be back for more" - Diane O'Donavan

Private Breathwork Sessions

Although we usually offer group breathwork sessions on Monday evenings on a by donation basis, for some people the day or time is not convenient, and/or they feel more comfortable to be able to fully let go in a private session.

Breathwork therapy is a complete self- healing system using conscious breathwork to facilitate improved well-being, inner peace and greater joy in life.

Transformational Breath is a unique form of Breathwork. It works by facilitating the natural healing process for all types of trauma, is beneficial in gaining greater physical, mental and spiritual health, and in maintenance of optimal health. 

We offer two different options for Private Breathwork Sessions.

Recorded audio breathwork session, facilitated by a member of The Sanctuary healing team who has previous experience of receiving breathwork. The facilitator (not a trained breathwork facilitator) is there to set up a private space for you (usually in our Healing Room) and to be present during the session. He or she will likely also join in with the breathwork themselves yet be there to offer extra guidance if necessary. More information about the recordings here. The session will last 75 - 90 minutes including a heart to heart sharing session afterwards.

Who is Juan Ricardo Asbury?

I was born in Midwestern USA in 1948 and am presently 66 years old. I first came to Mexico in the fall of 1967 as a student at the University of the Americas, which at the time was located on the outskirts of Mexico City. I was 19 and it was an eye opening experience to say the least. Since then I have spent many years in Mexico and Central America and have spent the last 24 years living in an all Indian community in the high Sierra Mazateca living in the outskirts of Huautla de Jimenez, Oaxaca and practicing acupuncture and cultivation of medicinal mushrooms. I was able to learn the language, Mazatec, but not nearly as well as some of my children who were born there.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s I was the manager of a four star gourmet Northern Italian, French provincial restaurant that was quite famous for about a 500 mile radius of its location. I worked very long hours, 17 and 18 hour days, and eventually developed a stomach ulcer from the huge pressure and a bad back problem that eventually made work impossible…..I had tried several stomach doctors and chiropractors for the back but they were just maintaining me so to speak….I was not really getting better. One of my chefs had been urging me to go see the Chinamen acupuncturist that her mom went to for any sort of health issue she had. I remained defiant and said I needed real medicine not quack needles that would do nothing for someone with the pain I was in. But once I could no longer work and had given up on traditional methods used by the doctors in the area….I finally went to seek out the Chinamen. He asked me what was wrong and I explained that I had a stomach ulcer and a terrible back problem…..He looked at me and said….it is one problem that is manifesting in the front as an ulcer and in the back as severe pain. I had never even thought of such a connection. He cured me totally after four sessions. I was blown away and so impressed that I asked him if he would teach me. He replied that I would not stick to it and he didn’t want to start training someone likely to quit halfway through the training….however, I was finally able to assure him of my deep desire to learn and he said it would cost ten thousand dollars but that I could pay little by little. I jumped at the opportunity, for I knew that someday I would wind up in those Oaxacan mountains and there would be no one to heal me, and had better learn myself. This was the main motivation. Eventually a few years later I visited Shanghai, China and took some additional course work there.

I am also a mid-wife (mid-husband?), and have delivered all of my 17 children and quite some others for friends who did not want their kids born in a hospital setting. Over the years I have studied nutrition and the effects of poor diet on human pathology and it is an ongoing study. I am a follower of Dr. Joseph Mercola who has an online health page and store. I have learned an immense amount from that site. I have been living in Puerto Escondido since February of 2015 and became involved with the Sanctuary in the end of April 2015.

Private Yoga Class

Would you like a one on one personal yoga class, perhaps as an introduction to yoga or maybe to help you deepen your practice?  We do offer daily group yoga classes Monday to Saturday 7.45 am - 9 am at a cost of 50 pesos per class, but for some people this is too early in the day, and/or they prefer some personal tuition. We therefore also give the option of private classes (for one or more)

Currently we offer private 90 minute sessions with Pete Adams. Pete teaches an introductory Agama / Hridaya style meditative hatha yoga class. If this is your first class with him it will include some yogic theory. The class will finish with a full body relaxation.

To book a private Yoga Class, at a cost of 500 pesos for one person (add 50 pesos per additional person), Send us a message letting us know when and with who you would like your class. 

FIR Sauna

 Click here for even more information

We are very pleased to have the benefit of a Far Infra Red Sauna at The Sanctuary. FIR sauna therapy speeds up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in substantial caloric loss, i.e. weight loss, during a sauna session.

The increased blood flow speeds healing of sprains and strains and relieves pain. It also helps aching muscles to recover faster because the metabolic and toxic waste products are purged faster from your system and through the skin when perspiring. This article offers much more information

You will need to bring at least one towel with you, to sit on in the sauna and to dry yourself when you shower afterwards. As a maximum of 5 to 10 minutes is suggested for your first FIR sauna session, offer an introductory first trial session price of 40 pesos.

Thereafter we ask for a 60 peso donation per session (up to 15 minutes) or 80 pesos (up to 25 minutes) and you may take a shower afterwards. You may purchase in advance a 10 session package for a 20% discount (to be used within 1 month).

If you wish us to provide towels for you we ask for an additional 10 peso per towel donation to cover laundry costs. 

Resident Guests at The Sanctuary can use the FIR sauna free of charge for up to 15 minutes per day. Send us a message to book an FIR Sauna Healing Therapy.
