Thalassotherapy is a therapeutic skin-treatment method, where mineral elements present in sea-water are believed to have health-related benefits when absorbed through the skin.

By combining the comfort of luxury hotels with the rejuvenation of natural mineral-therapy treatments, Tunisia has attracted an increasing number of tourists who flock to the balmy shores of the Mediterranean to enjoy a relaxing vacation in one of the country's lavish thalassic hotels.

Touristic health-resorts have experienced rapid growth in Tunisia, with state-of-the-art clinics emerging in Sousse, Hammamet, Djerba, and Gammarth. The practices of these centers are regulated strictly under international standards to ensure their authenticity.

The country's relative head start in therapeutic tourism, which was initiated in 1994, and the presence of numerous high-quality medical resorts are believed to be factors that account for the recent success of this sector.

The health-tourism sector attracts approximately150 thousand international tourists and ten thousand Tunisians annually.
