Services: SCENAR (Self Controlled Neuro-Adaptive Regulator)


The innovative SCENAR is a biofeedback healing device that uses computerized technology for managing pain.  Developed in the Russian space program, it is a highly efficient alternative medical device for promoting the body’s own healing process in pain syndromes.  It is placed on the skin with an electrical contact at one end.  You will feel a gentle tingling or stroking sensation.  By influencing the thin C-fibers of the nervous system, which constitute most of the nerves in the body, it stimulates the production of the body’s own pharmacy of regulatory neuropeptides into the bloodstream.  These natural body chemicals help the brain recognize where a problem exists and allow the body to heal itself more efficiently.  As with most interventions for pain management, a series of sessions is usually necessary to achieve optimal results.  Extensive experience in Russia has demonstrated a success rate of approximately 80%.


Pain relief is extremely effective with SCENAR.  By triggering the body to heal itself at a cellular level, SCENAR treatment will not mask an underlying problem but instead will force the body to address it, reversing the pathology.  Experience in Russia has shown that the treatment can be equally effective for many other diseases, often enabling patient recovery in far less time than would be expected.


Patients receiving SCENAR treatment must take responsibility for their own health, and are advised to participate actively in the treatment and recovery process.  Inform your doctor about SCENAR treatment, as it may enable you to reduce or even stop taking some medication, which should be done under the supervision of your doctor.


A series of SCENAR treatments lasting 15 to 60 minutes, is recommended for reaching the therapeutic goal of pain remission.
