What is SCENAR therapy?
Self-Controlled Energo Adaptive Regulation (SCENAR) therapy utilises a form of electrotherapy in stimulating the body’s own healing processes. It was originally developed by Soviet scientists in Russia as a diagnosis and treatment technique for astronauts while in space.
It is a small hand held device that generates the electrical impulses that when applied to the body, the electrical waves are being transmitted throughout the user. The device also measures the body’s response to electrical impulses and therefore providing the user with important bio-feedback: the body’s response to treatment.
What is SCENAR therapy used for?
The device used for SCENAR therapy works through the skin and uses computer-modulated, electrical impulses in stimulating the brain. The unique biofeedback capabilities and the ability to stimulate Neuropeptide allow the therapy to achieve excellent healing results.
SCENAR therapy is being used for treating acute or chronic pain and as an adjunct for postoperative pain.
How does SCENAR therapy work?
A session of SCENAR therapy typically lasts from 30 minutes to an hour. Slight tingling sensations will be felt when the device is applied on the skin.
However, the following people should avoid using SCENAR:
- Pregnant women
- Epilepsy patients
- Patients with electrical implants or pacemakers
