What is it?

SCENAR is a small hand-held electronic device that was developed by a team of Russian doctors and scientists as part of a secret Soviet space program. The goal was to create a portable, effective device to maintain the health and wellbeing of astronauts without the need to use drugs or medication.

SCENAR is a safe, non-invasive, non-toxic, pain-relieving, biofeedback device. Its aim is to stimulate (kick-start) the body's own healing system to promote homeostasis (balance) within the body. SCENAR treats the route of the problem not just the symptom.

In the UK, SCENAR is licensed by the British Standards Institute and carries a CE mark for pain relief. However, because of its nature of stimulating the nervous system, Russian experience is that SCENAR affects all the body systems including diseases of the digestive, cardio-vascular, respiratory, musculo-skeletal, urinary, reproductive and nervous systems.

How does it work?

SCENAR is directly placed onto the skin (you will feel tingling sensations) at which point it starts the activation/initiation of the body's self healing process by sending (electric like) impulses, similar to the nerve signals. These impulses travel through nerve fibres (specific type C fibres which make around 85% of the nerves in the body) to the brain, stimulating the production and release of the body's own natural chemicals and neuropeptides (endorphins) helping to regulate pain and treat the whole body.

What does SCENAR treat?

SCENAR is recognised as being particularly beneficial in reducing pain, improving and accelerating the healing of wounds, increasing energy, improving the sense of well-being. Amongst others it treats:

sports injuries
back, neck and shoulder pain
knee pain
RSI (repetitive strain injuries)
post operative pain
circulatory and respiratory problems
musculoskeletal and digestive problems


Each treatment lasts from 30-60 minutes and is tailored individually to suit each person depending on the complaint.

The number of treatments may vary. Acute problems need fewer treatments and dramatic effects in the reduction of pain are often noticed in 3 - 4 sessions (in some cases even less). Chronic long term complaints may need more treatments due to the nature of the problem often involving general wear and tear and degeneration.

SCENAR can be used very effectively alone or in conjunction with other therapies. For example it can be ideal for back pain management when combined with Deep Tissue Massage.

SCENAR is not recommended for people with cardiac pacemakers or epilepsy.
