The simplest explanation of how the Scenar works was given in a rare interview by one of its founding researchers Alexander Karasev:
SCENAR works by making the body’s own immune system operate more efficiently. Technically it is a very complicated device, which sends electronic impulses via the skin to the brain but it was designed to be used by anybody without any special medical training. You just hold it over the affected area or organ and it sends an amplified signal of pain to the brain. This causes the brain to trigger the body’s immune system, which, after only a few minutes of treatment, the patient starts feeling much better.
Scenar therapy stimulates the body to use its own internal pharmacy to cure a state of ‘dis-ease’. When the Scenar passes over a ‘painful’ area it sends out a signal to the brain telling it that there is an imbalance, experienced as 'stickiness' on the skin.
The brain constantly monitors the condition of the body so will already know that this imbalance has occurred. As a normal process it would send bio-active compounds to ease the pain and begin the healing process.
Scenar technology was developed to "jump-start" the body’s own natural healing response, telling the brain that more of the bodies’ natural medicinal compounds are required to neutralise the pain and heal the injury. Using electro-stimulation on the skin a very sophisticated electronic feedback loop is set up and the nervous system sends a measured dose of neuropeptides, some of the most plowerful pain relief agents that the body produces, to the site of pain. As the device is brushed over the area it continuously monitors the changes, sending messages back to the brain so that it is able to adjust the treatment accordingly.
At the start of the treatment the Scenar appears to drag over the point of pain feeling ‘sticky’. As healing begins the site may redden or change colour in relation to the surrounding skin and the device may emit a ‘buzzing’ sound as it passes over the point of pain. Once the area undergoes change, either by reduced stickiness, change of skin colour, or a fainter buzzing sound, the treatment is complete.
In minutes the body has delivered sufficient natural chemicals to give plowerful pain relief and to speed up the healing process.
Having been treated by the Scenar device by Jenny I was delighted with the treatment. It was relaxing; I felt rejuvenated and would be keen to have further treatments in the future.
I have completed a course of treatments, this is the first therapy to actually treat the shoulder injury successfully and not the symptoms. In two weeks I was back at work as my condition had been treated very successfully.
Scenar treatment has made the world of difference to my llower back problem - the pain is gone and my back feels great, the best in years. I move without pain.
