Turkish Baths?

It will be my first trip to Turkey and Kalkan and have heard that a Turkish bath is a must do? I dislike saunas as I have trouble with the steam and as I've recently been ill a heavy, pummeling massage would be out of the question. Is it possible to have a gentle massage and scrub etc or am I missing the point all together?!

Turkish baths are more steamy than saunas so probably wouldn't suit you.

Why not try a massage - there are a few places in town and someone on the forums will know where they are. You could ask for them to be very gentle and it would be really relaxing.

I recently had a treatment called "Aromasoul" on a cruise ship - this consisted of a gentle body scrub, which you then showered off, followed by a gentle massage, then a session on a flotation bed whilst the masseuse massaged my head for about 25 minutes.

Heaven! Don't know if anyone does similar in Kalkan.
