SCENAR therapy is a quantum leap in technology over TENS Therapy. In conventional TENS therapy, for example, the pain subsides usually only while the TENS unit is activated.
With SCENAR therapy, pain relief extends beyond the actual treatment, often weeks beyond. That’s because with the use of TENS devices, the body adapts itself to the electrical signal and eventually just ignores it. The net result? The pain returns. This is one of the major distinguishing factors in SCENAR therapy.
The SCENAR device sends out a signal and then waits for it to return from the body. The device then reads the returning signal and adjusts its own subsequent signal. Because of this biofeedback mechanism, each new signal differs from the previous one, thus overcoming the adaptiveness of the body to a single, continuous electrical signal as in TENS.
SCENAR therapy also inﬂuences local blood ﬂow, especially in regulating micro-circulation. That’s important in treatment of sports injuries, as blood brings the building blocks for repair and removes dead tissue and waste products. But one of the biggest factors in the effectiveness of SCENAR therapy is its ability to induce the release of neuropeptides. While SCENAR also induces the body to release natural opium-like painkillers called endorphins (similar to the action of TENS), it is the release of neuropeptides that enables SCENAR to quickly heal injuries of all types.
Why is that important? Neuropeptides regulate almost all life processes on the cellular level, thus linking together all body systems. They have been referred to as the body’s internal pharmacy, the key in the lock that causes the cascading, chain reaction effect, creating a holistic body response. Among other regulatory functions, neuropeptides are profoundly involved in inﬂammation. For athletes the best part of SCENAR therapy is that it is drug-free, non-invasive, non-addictive, and has no side effects!
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.
