Hello! I'm Myrthe

 

I am from Bantry, in Ireland and I have been practicing massage since 2002. My mother was one of the first massage therapists in Bantry - and set up Anam Cara - Bantry's firs holistic therapy centre. Later myself and my sister took over Anam Cara. In 2009 we closed our doors to move to the city. 
After almost 10 years of working and travelling abroad, I'm back in my home town and offering therapies.
