How about getting some massage?

Here we are talking about massage therapy to indicate that this is one of the oldest and most effective methods to cure a person through the body.

Massage is one of the oldest and most common techniques to treat each other. Touching each other is a non-verbal way of communication. It is the intention that turns a touch into a healing or into a painful experience. Every child makes this experience in his mother’s arms. (i.e. touch for health).
Besides that, therapeutical massage has the aim to heal through the body.

Tatjana Rottenberg uses the following techniques for massage:

  • Classical massage
  • Releasing techniques from Shiatsu
  • Trigger point massage
  • Reflexology
  • Fertility massage: for women who want a baby but are too much under stress to release and let things happen (only works, if the reason for infertility is not the husband of course, any serious health problem or a completely confused hormone system after years of hormone therapy).

Informed Walking Tours of the City


 Istanbul ‘N’ Constantinople: Informed Walking Tours of the City

As an Oxford-trained historian, with a wide interest in the politics, history and culture of the Balkans and the wider Middle East, our consultant will walk (and talk) you through the city of Istanbul. Your walk will be designed according to your interests and predilections: stressing either, the historical, the cultural or the purely picturesque.

Widen the scope of your acquaintance with the City beyond the confines of Sultanahmet and the Blue Mosque. Discover the many flavours of Istanbul, strolling through the hustle and bustle of Tahtakale, visiting the mosque of Rüstem Pasha, or taking a leisurely stroll across the İstiklâl Caddesi (formerly known as la Grande rue de Péra) to experience sides of the City quite unknown to most tourists. Further afield, our walk could take you to such places as Tophane, Cihangir, Bebek, or Sarıyer on this shoreline. Or alternatively, you could venture across the Bosphorus and discover the Anatolian part of the City: from the picturesque Kadıköy with its lively fish market, over the lofty heights of Ottoman architecture present in Üsküdar and from there hop on the bus to Beylerbeyi, where a nineteenth-century summer palace and an eighteenth-century mosque constitute vivid reminders of the City’s history among the picturesque village which is the district of Beylerbeyi.

But there are so many more sights to behold that it would be impossible to list them all. If you are interested to find out more about Istanbul, its pre-Ottoman and Ottoman history and culture, and its current vibrancy then you should get in touch with Dr Can Erimtan at or call: (+9) 0 537 778 79 15

New Apartment, New Photos


It’s good to give you news about our website from time to time. As you may have realized, a new apartment (namely, Angels and Demons) joined to Istanbul Sweet Home family recently. Besides all the renovation/construction part, the web-work for each apartment also takes huge time to complete, considering the “photo-taking” and ”video shooting and editing” as a part of this web-business.

Now I’m proud to say there are more than “just a couple of photos” to tell you more about Angels and Demons. The video is also on the way (I’m sort of busy with the editing-bit) and I will let you know through these pages! (Latest addition: The video is also ready…) Please take some time to explore the photo pages of Angels and Demons…

Just another dipnote to remind you that there have been quite a few additions to photos of Bohemian Rhapsody and My Turkish Bath…
