Natural and medical treatment
The unusual attributes of the Dead Sea have been known for centuries. It is the only place in the world where this particular combination of spa benefits exists. Peculiar sun radiation and climatic conditions, enriched oxygen atmosphere, mineral-rich sea salt, thermo-mineral springs, and mineral-rich mud all offer effective medical treatment and therapeutic benefits that attract visitors from all over the world. The plants that grow at the lakeside, particularly the balsam tree, produce highly valuable and sought-after cosmetics, perfumes and medical substances.
Dead Sea Treatments
The therapeutic benefits of the Dead Sea have been known to man for at least two thousand years. At 410m below sea level, it has a unique combination of climatic conditions and elements – sun, water, mud and air – that have been proven to offer excellent natural treatments for a range of chronic ailments including dermatological problems such as Psoriasis, Atopic Dermatitis, Vitiligo and Psoriatic Arthritis, as well as for respiratory conditions such as Asthma, and for many other ailments, including Arthritis, circulatory problems, hypertension, Parkinson’s Disease and some eye problems.
Today, thousands of people from all over the world come to the Dead Sea to rejuvenate, recover, relax and enjoy its natural benefits. A chain of world class luxury hotel and spa resorts line the coast. These provide superlative accommodation and range of treatments in their spas. The Dead Sea’s clinics specialize in the treatment of skin, joint and eye diseases as well as respiratory and hypertension problems. Each clinic has a team of senior physicians and experts and a fully trained nursing staff.
The Dead Sea’s laboratories produce a range of facial mud masks, bath salts, shampoos, cleansers, nourishing creams, moisturizers, hand creams, make-up removers, skin toners, astringents, face washes, bath and shower gels, soaps and sun protection creams. All are produced from the area’s natural products, are of excellent quality and are available in outlets throughout Jordan or can be ordered on-line for delivery anywhere in the world, so that visitors can continue to enjoy the benefits of the Dead Sea long after they have returned home.
Using these products peels away the dead skin cells on the surface, revealing a healthier looking under layer. At the same time, it will moisturize and tighten your skin so that you will look younger and more vibrant. It calms and relaxes the skin so that wrinkles will not be visible to the naked eye. They are also able to help control skin disorders by strengthening the skin and removing all of the toxins in the body by flushing them out.
The Dead Sea Medical Center is certified by the Jordanian Ministry of Health and the Jordanian Chamber of Physicians for the treatment of skin complaints, physical therapy and rehabilitation.
