Compared to the 3% salt content of ordinary sea water, the Dead Sea water contains 32% salts with relatively high concentration of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, bromide and potassium. Exposure to Dead Sea water is uniquely acclaimed for nourishing the skin, easing rheumatic discomfort, activating the circulatory system, and relaxing the nerves. This is endorsed by European health funds who send their members to be treated at the Dead Sea for chronic skin and rheumatic conditions. Its very high density enables the body to float effortlessly. This special feature permits free, relaxed and easier movement in the water thus enhancing the effects of physiotherapy.
