The Science of Scenar


      BIO Scenar will help, diminish and even cure pain. Scenar is intended for delivering non-invasive treatment to the body’s physiological systems via skin area, in order to provide pain relief and restore function. The Scenar impulse is carried via efferent nerve fibres to regulatory centres of the brain which responds via efferent nerve fibre. Bio Scenar device provides direct therapeutic effect and is achieved through the stimulation of reflective zones and acupuncture points on the skin’s surface. Part of the Scenar therapy treatments includes rating pain on the day of appointment from 1 to 10 pain scale, measuring the range of movement and testing movement related to the functional impairment.

Bio Scenar enables a maximal part of the nervous tissue to be activated. Scenar is a system of monitoring and response, detecting the therapeutic impulses from Scenar, enabling a unique interaction between it and your body.
You have not tried everything to be pain-free until you have tried Bio Scenar. Live again and know what it’s like to be free of pain!

I believe that no one should suffer from pain.

Don’t manage pain alone.
No one should manage pain alone. Our focus is not only on your immediate treatment but also on your successful long-term recovery from chronic pain. That means we don’t give up on finding relief for you, no matter how long that takes.

I empower you & your family to play an active role in your pain care. Pain is very personal, and so by working with you to understand how your experience is affecting you, we can give you practical steps that can help reduce its impact and put you back in control.

People do not have to live with pain.

By the time people see us they are frustrated and fed up. Pain has reduced their quality of life and they have often been told they have to live with pain. This is not always the case! We will strive to find a way to manage the pain & remember that we are not just treating a pain problem; we are treating a person in pain. We need to understand the person who is suffering the pain before we can focus treatment on the pain.

There is no quick fix for managing pain.

Pain management is a marathon, not a race. It takes time and patients need to be just as committed to managing their pain as we are. Unfortunately, despite all our hard work, we are unable to help every pain that we treat but this is usually the exception rather than the rule.

The key to successful pain management is ‘the right treatment, for the right person, at the right time’.

A little history on Scenar Therapy.

Scenar therapy was developed in Russia combining Western electrical biofeedback with Eastern energy medicine and its technology was a product of the space race. The scenar technology was originally developed for Astronauts and cosmonauts that could not take pharmaceuticals for possible malady into space, so Scenar therapy was developed as an energetic medicine and a biofeedback system for healing.

Scenar technology was developed by a team of Russian doctors and scientists in the late 1970’s as a treatment that was energy efficient, portable and non-invasive.

The Scenar device is a repeatable therapeutic treatment using electrical signals to stimulate the immune system using the body’s own healer.

Scenar therapy works on disease and dysfunctions of every sort, by acting systemically on the body’s own energy field. It can be used as a non-invasive treatment for serious disease and injuries and on chronic medical conditions.

Scenar therapy greatly reduces recovery times after accidents and serious injuries. In accident and emergency wards, it is used to aid recovery from cardiac arrest, massive trauma, and coma. It has proven beneficial in burns, fractures, insect bites, allergic reactions, immune disorders, depression and other mental afflictions, dental problems and skin conditions.

In addition, trials have demonstrated dramatic benefits for pain relief. Clients of both cancer and fractures have experienced more pain relief from the release of natural opioids stimulated by SCENAR treatment than from chemical opioids.


I, myself,  experienced a severe sinus infection- the pain was at its worst at night, when the body was resting. Using Scenar therapy gave me relief to sleep. Relieving pain and giving comfort- knowing I could get some relief until antibiotics were later taken for the infection.

A sinus infection occurs when bacteria from the nose enter the sinuses. To help you assess whether you have a sinus tooth pain or a toothache (caused by something else). Take note of symptoms that occur in addition to pain around the upper teeth, eyes, or cheekbones.

I also use Bio Scenar for my Spondylosis in my back. Without this device, I would not be moving today as pain takes your breath away and you just can’t function in severe pain. Spondylosis is also called cervical osteoarthritis. This condition involves changes to the bones, discs, and joints of the neck. These changes are the normal wear-and-tear of aging. With age, the discs of the cervical spine gradually break down, lose fluid, and become stiffer.

During Treatment: the patient feels only a gentle tingling or stroking sensation, as Scenar is run on the spine, abdomen, infected area or other relevant portions of the bare skin. The Scenar device sends electrical signals, records the resistive response, and uses its sophisticated software to return a freshly modulated signal. Your therapist determines where to apply the device by looking for anomalies on the skin surface, indicated by redness, numbness, stickiness or a change in sound from the device. These areas may not seem to be directly related to the symptoms for which treatment is sought, but the experience indicates that the healing process is commenced by treating these “asymmetries.”

How it works:

The Scenar is operated by placing the device directly on the skin, where it collects electromagnetic signals that are modified and sent back to the body. This “biofeedback” feature is what distinguishes it from Tens machines and other electrical therapies. These send out a consistent continuous signal to which the body can eventually fail to respond. The Scenar’s signals, by contrast, change in response to body changes, preventing adaptation. The device sends out a series of signals through the skin and measures the response. Each signal is sent only when a change is recorded in the electrical properties of the skin in response to the previous signal.

How the SCENAR heals involves neuropeptides, the internal pharmacy of chemicals which keep the body in physiological balance and healing. Without the activity of regulatory peptides produced by the nerves, the body can adapt to disease states, (which may be caused by injury, injection or toxicity).

 The SCENAR stimulates the nervous system to produce its regulatory peptides, thereby prompting the body to heal itself. The device catalyzes the production of neuropeptides for use where necessary to re-establish the body’s natural physiological state and cause healing. Because these peptides last up to several hours, the healing process continues long after the treatment is over.

The healing process is ongoing for another reason. Disease occurs where portions of the body have been blocked from communication with the energetic system that keeps it in balance. The SCENAR begins a dialogue with these blocked areas. Once the lines of communication have been re-established, the information-starved areas keep on talking. They want to stretch and move and come back to life. Healing is reported not only in the nervous system but in conjunction with other chemical imbalances, correcting sleeplessness, appetite, behavioral problems, learning ability, memory, and overall physical health.

The SCENAR works on an informational level to remind the body that it still has repair work to do.

Research and Contraindications:

No unwanted side effects have been demonstrated from SCENAR treatment in over twenty years of use in Russia and Europe. The impulses sent by the device are similar to the body’s own nerve impulses and are quite safe, even for children and pregnant women. Scenar is not available for people with cardiac pacemakers, although certain other diseases and injuries should be treated only by a practitioner with thorough training.

As with all-natural treatments that stimulate rather than suppress the body’s own healing power, the initial effect may be a “healing crisis”- this makes the patient feel worse before feeling better. A lack of energy or general malaise may result as old problems are brought to the surface for treatment and elimination. But this necessary bit of housekeeping soon passes and is followed by new heights of well-being, increased energy, and a more refreshing sleep.

Russian research indicates that for long-lasting effectiveness, chronic problems may need treatment three or four times by three treatment sessions. Acute problems, however, often resolve after only one or two treatments. Fresh injuries or acute inflammatory processes may require intensive treatment once or twice daily for several weeks, reducing gradually as the condition improves

Definition: Causing Irritation of the Sciatic

  • Acute Tenderness in the buttocks and Sciatica like pain.
    The pain goes down the back of the thigh, calf, and foot.
    Dull ache in the buttock, pain when walking stairs.
    Pain after prolonged sitting and reduced range of hip joint

Piriformis Syndrome is a condition in which the Piriformis muscle, located in the buttock region spasms and causes buttock pain.
This also irritates the nearby sciatic nerve and causes pain numbness and tingling along back of legs and into the foot.

Causes of Sciatica
1. Lumbar herniated disc. This can be referred to as a slipped disc. If you did slip a disc, you wouldn’t be walking.
2. Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease (eg: Spondylolisthesis), which can also irritate the L5 nerve. This lies on top of the sacroiliac joint, causing sciatica type pain.
