The therapeutic effects of
bathing in the Dead Sea were well known even
in times of antiquity. Galenus, for instance, stated that this salt
water was good for the treatment of
Eczema, Muscular Pain, Rheumatism, Psoriasis, and
also to Relieve Tension, Aid
Relaxation, and develop Smooth Silky Skin.

The waters of the Dead Sea are
unique compared to other seas and lakes primarily
due to the high concentration of salts reaching 27% compared to
3% in ordinary sea water. The composition of the Dead Sea salts is also
unique. Whereas in ordinary sea water sodium chloride (common salt) is
the major constituent (about 80% of the total salt content) the Dead Sea
on the other hand contains a considerably smaller proportion of sodium
chloride, the balance consisting of magnesium, potassium and calcium
chlorides, and a comparatively high
concentration of bromides. It is believed that the therapeutic
properties of the Dead Sea are due in large
extent to the presence of these other salts, mainly those of magnesium,
potassium and bromide.
