017- Dead Sea
The Dead Sea’s low elevation and high mineral content make it a unique environment for a variety of recuperative and cosmetic treatments. The lower elevation results in increased oxygen levels, increased atmospheric pressure, and reduced ultraviolet radiation, which are beneficial for lung, skin, and joint ailments. The mineral-rich water and the unique black muds rich in minerals and organic matter are beneficial for skin and joint ailments.
Health spas are common in hotels and resorts around the Dead Sea, and in Ma’in hot springs west of Madaba.
