Giving a new meaning to the term fat-burning, chilli wraps are fast becoming a hot commodity in the slimming industry. One of the first health and wellness centers in South Africa to incorporate the powerful weight-loss properties of chili into their treatments; Fortuna Studios are hot on the heels of this highly effective slimming secret. Chilli contains the active ingredient known as capsicum – meaning “to bite” in Greek – and it’s this secret ingredient that fat fears most. With the ability to increase the body’s heat production and in turn speed up the metabolism, capsicum effectively sends excess fat and lingering carbs running for the hefty hills.
Painless and non-invasive, lie back in one of the tranquil Fortuna Studio treatment rooms and relax as one of the therapists applies the special chilli wrap cream to your body. Massaging it in to promote blood circulation, lymph drainage and the break-down of cellulite; the therapist then wraps you in a loose medicinal wrap to let the chilli work its wonders. After approximately 90-minutes and a free foot spa treatment, you’ll be released from your chilli cocoon – only to emerge as a lighter, slimmer you.
