FAQ about Scenar Devices and Scenar Therapy

Q: How does it work?

A: Our health relies on the continuous exchange of information within the body. Each and every function of the body is interrelated and works in harmony with other functions - that is until stress, injury or disease disrupts that communication. The SCENAR communicates with all functions of the body through direct contact on the skin, tuning into the body's inner communication, and understanding the body's needs from the signals being sent back and forth. The SCENAR responds to these signals accordingly with gentle electrical impulses that communicate with the nervous system to stimulate the body's own healing process, so your body can operate with maximum efficiency once again.

This process used by the SCENAR is called 'Reflex Biofeedback', which is an ongoing, reflex conversation that proceeds at real-time, in biological speed and requires no conscious mental activity.

The SCENAR device sends out a series of electrical signals through the skin and measures the response. Each signal is only sent out when a change, in response to the previous signal, is recorded in the electrical properties of the skin. Visible responses include reddening of the skin, numbness, stickiness (the device will have the feeling of being magnetically dragged), a change in the numerical readout and an increase in the electronic clattering of the device. The C-fibres, which compromise 85% of all nerves in the body, react most readily to the electro-stimulation and are responsible for the production of neuro peptides and other regulatory peptides.

The body can get accustomed to a stable pathological state, which may have been caused by injury, or disease. The SCENAR acts as a catalyst to produce regulatory peptides by stimulation of C-fibres for the body to use where necessary. It is these neuro peptides that in turn reestablish the body's natural physiological state and are responsible for the healing process. As these peptides last up to several hours, the healing process will continue long after the treatment is over. The large quantity of neuro peptides and C-fibres in the Central Nervous System can also result in the treatment on one area aiding with other chemical imbalances, correcting sleeplessness, appetite and even behavioural problems.

   

Q: How Does SCENAR compare?

A: SCENAR therapy is a quantum leap in technology .

In conventional for example, the pain subsides usually only while the unit is activated. With SCENAR therapy, pain relief extends beyond the actual treatment, often weeks beyond. Thats because  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.

SCENAR therapy also influences local blood flow, especially in regulating micro-circulation. That's important in the 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, it is the release of neuropeptides that enables SCENAR to quickly heal injuries of all types.

SCENAR


SCENAR - dynamic therapy. The device is moved over the skin in order to specifically find optimal treatment areas.

SCENAR - specificity of treatment. The unique SCENAR waveform uses biofeedback to detect areas on the skin that are neurologically related to areas of injured tissue.

SCENAR - unique waveform. Pulsed, damped, sinusoidal and skin-impedance sensitive. High amplitude and very short pulse width of the waveform prevents accommodation. No two waveforms are the same.

SCENAR - highly effective. Treatment time 5 - 20 minutes.

Q: How long will my SCENAR treatment take?

A: Treatment usually takes 30-45 minutes depending on your complaint.For acute injuries the treatment time is usually about 30 minutes. For chronic complaints the treatment time is usually about 45 minute, we book allotments of 1hr for your treatment time.

Q: How many SCENAR treatments will I need?

A: The number of SCENAR treatments varies greatly from 1 session to many. Each complaint is individual and therefore each approach is individual.

In cases of Acute pain/injury, the best result will be achieved by having treatment sessions close to each other. The body releases its own neuropeptides that have an impact on the acute complaint, but after few hours the neuropeptides break down and more treatment is needed.
In cases of Chronic pain the you should expect gradual pain reduction over a period of time. Remember the more chronic the condition, the more time it will take to achieve sustained pain relief.

Q: How often should I use my SCENAR Home/Sport device in order to get results?

A: When using the SCENAR home or sport device, it can be used for up to half an hour at any one time, every two hours.

Q: What will happen during my SCENAR treatment?

A: The SCENAR device is a small hand held medical device unit and the therapist will apply it onto your skin typically at the site of pain or injury. It also often applied to the spine in order to stimulate the entire nervous system. You will feel a comfortable tingling sensation. It should not be painful.
