What is SCENAR?

SCENAR Therapy is a revolutionary therapeutic medical modality that utilizes computer-modulated interactive electro-stimulation to prompt the body to heal itself.

The SCENAR (Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator) is a hand-held, therapeutic medical device (ARTG 101783). The SCENAR is licensed by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration to treat pain and physiological dysfunction.

Why is SCENAR different?

SCENAR therapy is different from other therapeutic stimulation because of the type of electronic stimulation it produces The SCENAR device interacts with the body through the skin to precisely and simultaneously locate, measure and treat problem areas (asymmetries) to help relieve pain and restore function.

Where is SCENAR from?

SCENAR was initially developed by doctors and scientists within the Russian space programme in the late 1970s to cope with the unique problems of space travel. Today SCENAR is a mainstream medical modality in Russia and there it has very many applications. SCENAR eventually was introduced in many other countries around the world and is now available in Australia.

How does SCENAR work?

Our health relies on the continuous exchange of information within the body. Every function of the body is inter-related and works in harmony with other functions – that is until stress, injury or disease disrupt that communication.

The SCENAR communicates with all functions of the body through direct contact on the skin, tuning into the body’s inner communication, and understanding the body’s needs from the signals being sent back and forth.

The SCENAR responds to these signals accordingly with gentle electrical impulses that communicate with the nervous system to stimulate the body’s own healing process.

This process used by the SCENAR is called Reflex Biofeedback, which is an ongoing, reflex conversation that proceeds in real-time, at biological speed and requires no conscious mental activity.

The SCENAR device sends out a series of electrical signals through the skin and measures the response. Each signal is only sent out when a change, in response to the previous signal, is recorded in the electrical properties of the skin.

Visible responses include reddening of the skin, numbness, stickiness (the device will have the feeling of being magnetically dragged), a change in the numerical readout and an increase in the electronic clattering sound of the device.

The C-fibres, which comprise 85% of all nerves in the body, react most readily to the electro-stimulation and are responsible for the production of neuropeptides and other regulatory peptides.

The body can get accustomed to a stable pathological state, which may have been caused by injury, or disease.

The SCENAR acts as a catalyst to stimulate the C-fibres to produce regulatory peptides for the body to use where necessary. It is these neuropeptides that in turn re-establish the body’s natural physiological state and are responsible for the healing process.

As these peptides last up to several hours, the healing process will continue long after the treatment is over.

What conditions can SCENAR treat?

SCENAR gives pain relief. The effectiveness of SCENAR Therapy for pain relief is substantial and lasts longer than other pain control methods.

SCENAR Therapy does not treat a disease – it restores health. SCENAR finds imbalances (asymmetries) in the body and treats them accordingly. SCENAR Therapy does not act upon just one specific part of the body or organ, but on the whole body. The sole purpose of SCENAR Therapy is to stimulate the body’s own natural healing process, so your body can operate with maximum efficiency once again.

The large quantity of neuropeptides and C-fibres produced in the Central Nervous System during SCENAR Therapy can also result in the treatment on one area aiding the correction of chemical imbalances in other areas. This is why areas other than the one being treated can gain benefit, and even conditions such as sleeplessness, appetite and behavioral problems can be corrected.
