Arasys : Arasys works by placing electrodes to specific areas of the body, where an electrical impulse is sent directly to the muscle to improve muscle tone, decrease body fat and reduce water retention.There are many benefits such as detoxification, weight loss, improved metabolism and improved body contour (after 12-18 treatments, people may lose 1-2 dress sizes). It is a great option for weight loss, however in order to improve cardiovascular health, getting your heart rate up via a physical workout with cardio and weight lifting is essential. Also, it is important to observe a healthy diet as well. Once arasys gives you the results you want, it will be necessary to have ongoing treatments to maintain and/or have an exercise routine. I recommend working out to improve your cardiovascular health.

Sorry: Nothing, and i mean nothing can replace exercising 5 days a week for 45 minutes each session. Weight liss of 7-10 lbs should be a primary target if you are overweight.
