- SCENAR promotes fast recovery in the area of pain management, injury recovery and healing from chronic diseases.
- SCENAR therapy can help a wide range of health conditions but is best known for its remarkable ability to give lasting pain relief.
- SCENAR devices use mild electrical impulses to stimulate and focus the body’s powerful self-repair systems.
- The SCENAR is a hand-held, electro-stimulation therapeutic medical device.
- SCENAR’s deep, and usually permanent, results make it one of the most effective of all complementary therapies, and its reputation is growing fast.
The Human Body has a way of healing that is "in-built" and natural. All forms of holistic health care including your SCENAR treatments, closely follow these principles. The objective of natural healing is to assist the body to heal itself.
What is SCENAR therapy?
SCENAR is a form of therapeutic electro-therapy delivered via the skin, which produces local effects by stimulating the skin, muscle and blood vessels. It also has a systemic influence on the body by influencing nervous and endocrine systems. SCENAR impulses stimulate neural pathways via "active points" on the skin in an effort to restore and improve the function of disease-affected organs and tissues.
Can SCENAR help me?
SCENAR is effective regardless of diagnosis and is therefore non-specific. Its action depends substantially on the ability and the speed of the patient's body to react to the SCENAR signal. Optimum therapeutic results depend on the body's response and are therefore individual to each patient. this possibility of side effect is minimal because the SCENAR device monitors and evaluates throughout the treatment.
Sometimes it gets stuck in a rut and seemingly loses its way. SCENAR therapy involves finding imbalances and treating them by helping the body regain balance. Our health relies on the continuous exchange of information between cells and the brain. Each body function is interrelated and works in harmony - until stress, injury or disease disrupts that communication.
- Conditions most effectively treated are:
- Skeletal, muscular and nerve pains
- Sprains, strains, swellings
- Hematomas, inflammation
- Digestive, circulatory, respiratory difficulties
- Chronic fatigue and stress
The RITM SCENAR device is a small hand held unit, which the practitioner will apply to your skin. You may feel a slight tingling sensation. It may be slightly uncomfortable but not painful.
The treatment session is normally an hour for most people. For acute injuries, the treatment time is usually less. The practitioner will "brush" the device over your skin during your treatment. You will be encouraged to tell your practitioner of any changes you feel and any sensations you are experiencing.
The aim is to achieve a CHANGE in your condition during the treatment. In some cases you may feel "worse" after the treatment. You need not be alarmed - this is a good sign! It indicates that your body is responding quickly and a change is occurring. This is what we are looking for after your first consultation.
Your practitioner will ask you to make notes of any changes you experience after your initial treatment, good or bad. Bring these notes (mental or written) to your next treatment and tell your practitioner. It will help focus your treatments.
After one or two treatments your practitioner will be in a better position to estimate how many treatments you may need and the time between them. Your practitioner may also recommend the use of an Energy Blanket to use during your clinic visits.
Is SCENAR safe?
A SCENAR impulse is similar to the body’s natural electro-neuro impulses. It is therefore safe and will not damage any part of the body systems.
People with metallic implants such as pins, plates, screws, as well as hip/knee replacements are able to receive SCENAR therapy. However people with a demand-type cardiac pacemaker are NOT allowed to have SCENAR treatment.
This depends on the nature and stage of the condition, your overall health, and the degree of pain and urgency. With very acute conditions and recent injuries, we may treat daily, but the normal pattern is two or three times per week until the symptoms are clearly starting to go. Some conditions, such as simple back pain, may resolve in one or two sessions.
What about my conventional treatment?
The therapist prefers that your doctor knows you are receiving this treatment. It is hoped that any non-essential drugs can be reduced or eliminated over time and your doctor needs to be involved in that.
For best results it is advisable not to bathe or shower for two hours before or after treatment, as the optimal effectiveness of the treatment will be disturbed by the washing of the skin.
SCENAR technology relies on the body's own mechanisms of adaptation, which provide dynamic equilibrium - allostasis. The body achieves regulation of its vital functions through close communication and interaction of the nervous and endocrine systems.
The trained SCENAR practitioner facilitates the device's most efficient function by observing the treatment process. In this way the patient, the device and the practitioner create a "treatment triangle". This treatment triangle is essential for correcting the disturbed function of the body and for modifying the adaptive reactions of the body. This results in the restoration of the body's balance.
A unique characteristic of SCENAR is that it makes changes to its electrical impulse automatically after measuring the body's own response to the device. While conventional therapeutic devices are passive, SCENAR involves active reflex biofeedback, which means that the device communicates actively with the processes that are happening in the body.
The SCENAR device does this by monitoring the skin's impedance and consequently changing the electrical impulse it emits. Maximal therapeutic effectiveness is possible with this active reflex biofeedback.
SCENAR is the modern, painless way to ease pain and regain body balance.
Results reported for the SCENAR have been remarkable. There seems to be very few ailment categories that it cannot assist. Improvements in particular conditions are simply the result of applying procedures developed over two decades of the device's use to effect a change in skin/body response to the SCENAR signal/impulse.
Several medical studies in Russia, where the device was developed, in USA and in Europe now have shown the high effectiveness of the SCENAR treatment.
