As your host I warmly welcome you to this site. I would like to begin by sharing with you my ethos as a therapist. For me massage is like water; flowing, cleansing and powerful. It is a medium through which my energy and skill creates a positive healing effect on my patients, and in turn rewards me as I have the honour of sharing this gift.
I have been based in the beautiful touristic seaside town of Kalkan for the past 20 years, the last eleven of which have been dedicated to my work as a therapist. After studying an intensive year-long course on anatomy, massage and human relations I received my qualification from the Turkish Ministry of Education in April 2006. Since then I have been running my massage practise both as a mobile practise and at various venues in Kalkan. I provide a range of therapies including Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and more.

What’s more, it helped reduce stress and produce deep relaxation.
From this ancient and continuing practice we have learned that one of the main methods to relieve physical nuisances and emotional stress is massage.
