What is SCENAR?

The SCENAR (Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator) is a hand-held therapeutic medical device. This leading edge technology from Russia was originally developed as part of the space programme, by scientists and doctors to maintain astronauts’ health and well-being during space travel. The media has called it “space-age medicine,” “electronic Reiki,” and “Star Trek medicine.” Dr. James Colthurst, the Royal Homeopath, was instrumental in introducing SCENAR to this country. In an interview with the Times he stated, “Widespread use of this device could save the NHS billions of pounds.”


SCENAR Therapists usually use two devices; a Pain Genie, which is used subjectively, being brushed over the skin to find problem areas, which are detectable as sticky or red or produce a different sound on the device. The Professional Device is capable of taking readings from the skin and can deliver numerous treatment protocol combinations.


How does SCENAR work?

SCENAR works primarily because there is a connection between the skin and the nervous system, both being created from the same layer of the young embryo, the ectoderm.


Treatment is a painless and non-invasive electrotherapy. It works by measuring skin impedance and mimicking nerve impulses detected through the skin in a biofeedback conversation with the client’s Central Nervous System. It re-educates the body allowing accelerated natural healing; stimulating specific nerve fibres, called “C fibres” to release powerful healing substances and painkillers from the body’s own internal pharmacy. Pain is relieved and homeostasis (balance) restored.


During SCENAR therapy the therapeutic influence is exactly dosed, and quantity and quality of it is precisely determined by the body itself, depending on what it needs at each particular moment. The influence is strictly individualised.


What can SCENAR treat?

SCENAR is licensed in Europe for pain relief and in the U.S. for pain relief and muscle re-education. However, statistics compiled in Russian clinics show its effectiveness in treating all the systems of the body, including psychological and emotional problems.


Due to its conveniently small size it is taken on expeditions to remote destinations such as the North Pole and Everest. It is also used by many world class athletes, football clubs, hospitals and clinics throughout the world.


Any acute injury, pain or inflammation can be treated, sometimes with dramatic, instant and long-lasting relief. As a side-effect of treatment you may also experience better sleep, higher energy levels and general well-being.


What happens in a SCENAR session?

You will first be asked questions about your medical problems. The therapist will then place the electrode of the device on your skin and increase the power level until you feel a strong but comfortable tingling sensation. It will be brushed over the skin or moved from place to place taking readings. The back is usually treated because nerves from the spine connect to everywhere in the body. However, your problem area need not even be touched; the therapist can work on other parts of your body instead, such as the opposite side, or your forearm, due to the holographic principle that each part contains the whole. Or even just a foot, as in reflexology, when stimulation of reflexes affects all the organs, structures and systems of the body. The reflex zones of the face can be used, also acupuncture points such as those on the ears.


There are various attachments for SCENAR devices, including combs, ear-clips, acupuncture probes and sticky pads to use on specific problem areas. Pads can be left on the skin for the final part of your session, when you lie wrapped up in the Therapeutic Energy Blanket, which complements SCENAR Therapy.


What is the Therapeutic Energy Blanket?

This “Healing Blanket” represents the result of extensive research conducted within the Russian space programme, to diminish stress and increase vital energy of cosmonauts in space. Its unique composition contains reflective metallic material similar to that used in the lining of the astronaut suits for protection against potentially harmful electromagnetic fields.


How will I feel in the Blanket?

You may be aware of pleasant tingling sensations on the skin as the body’s electrical charge is rebalanced. The reflected infra-red radiation gives a deeply relaxing and soothing warmth. Some people fall asleep.


What are the benefits of the Blanket?

  • Immediate reduction of stress and tension (mental and physical), and sleep improvement.
  • Increases brain wave activity thereby enhancing mood and one’s outlook.
  • Reduces recovery period from injuries, surgery and illness, and enhances the effect of any medication.
  • Cocoons the body in a positive self-generated energy field that promotes healing.
  • Enhances the body’s self regulation and self healing ability, by shielding it from electro-magnetic and electrostatic fields.
  • Promotes greater energy flow throughout the body and reduces energy blockages.
  • Repeated use strengthens the immune system and increases resistance to seasonal infections and allergies.


Relaxing at the end of SCENAR sessions (or actually any other complementary therapy) wrapped in the blanket greatly magnifies the positive effects of the treatment. It acts as an energy mirror, reflecting the body’s natural radiation back and showing its “energetic portrait.” The body corrects its imperfections by rebalancing and restoring the harmony of its natural energy flow, gradually improving the state of health and regaining its natural healing powers.
