Scenar Treatment

Dear Paul,


I write to thank you for my recent Scenar treatment that has been extraordinarily successful and beyond my expectations. I hope this letter might help to inspire others who face similar conditions.

To recap, I came to you following about six years of investigation by specialists for a slowly deteriorating nerve condition in the right arm and shoulder including chronic radiculopathy in the right hand. This included three MRI scans and nerve conduction tests at Hurstwood Park and Kings College, London culminating, a few months ago, in the diagnosis of nerve compression due to an old injury sustained to the C5/6/7 vertebrae whilst motorbike racing thirty years ago, probably worsening as a result of wear and tear on the joint discs. 

I now faced the prospect of surgery. The recommendation was to go in through the front of my neck (past the larynx, with possible damage to such) to install metal inserts to permanently separate and stabilise my neck vertebrae. 

The pain levels in the shoulder, arm and hand had risen spasmodically over the years but after a contract to rebuild an old brick retaining wall last October, the pain reached levels that stopped my physical workload and severely restricted even computerised design work for my wildlife habitat landscaping company. Co-Codamol was re-prescribed at my request (2 x 4 times daily! – this was too much for me to stay awake so I reduced it to 1 x 6 times a day). 

Before deciding whether to go ahead with surgery, and concerned about whether I could continue with actively playing football, and at the age of 53 years, I thought that I would try at least one alternative therapy. I had heard of some startling reports of Scenar success and therefore searched the internet for a local therapist and found you there. 

Being a rather practical person, trained in civil and mechanical engineering, I was more than a little sceptical of the Scenar’s ability to even affect the symptoms from such a skeletal defect – but I was wrong! After a slow start with only slight reduction to the pain levels after the first and second treatments, I thought that any effect was a good sign and decided to continue with another couple of sessions. This was without any pressure at all from your good self, leaving me to call you after I had time to consider the benefits after each treatment, a refreshing attitude indeed from the world of alternative therapists. 

After just four Scenar treatments, I was able to stop the painkillers completely and each successive session has shown progressive improvement with only the slightest discomfort in the arm/head movement remaining and this is probably only due to my own decision to combine the treatment with light traction of the neck to try to restore the soft tissue between the problematic vertebrae. After three months and 10 treatments to date, I can also report some other benefits I have noticed as follows:  ability to sleep on my side again, ability to write and sign my signature fluently again, ability to turn my head fully to right and left, ability to undertake a reasonable ‘throw-in’ during football !!

I realise I may need top-up treatments from time to time, and I'll follow your advice and check in with my GP. But having not had a treatment for nearly four weeks now, I think these benefits can be assumed to be permanent and my ‘normal’ active life is resumed at last! 

Altogether, a phenomenal success – Thank you!


John Hayward



Progress Update (six months after the end of the main course of treatment, only three treatments since then):

"Six months later, I'm doing heavy physical work again as part of my job, and despite needing occasional top-ups, I'm basically pain-free except for the occasional twinge when work requires extreme neck and shoulder movements. When undertaking this kind of work, any pains seem to be self healing in a few days rather than taking several weeks or months as it used to."




Terry Waller, Insurance Manager, London (Frozen Shoulder)

"After lifting some heavy machinery, I found that trying to raise my left arm above my waist was very painful. My osteopath told me I had a frozen shoulder and although I got some relief from his treatment, he said it could take up to 12 months for things to normalise. Some weeks later I was introduced to Paul and his Scenar equipment. I was a little sceptical at first but after 2-3 sessions I began to notice improvement. To my amazement, after just 8 sessions I realised that I could raise my left arm as high and easily as my right. It's now just over a year later and I have remained completely pain free ever since. There is no hard sell with Paul who I found to be very knowledgeable and a consummate professional."

"The pain had reached levels that stopped my physical workload. The diagnosis was nerve compression due to an old injury to the C5/6/7 vertebrae. After four Scenar treatments, I was able to stop the painkillers. After three months and 10 treatments I can sleep on my side again, write and sign my signature fluently again, turn my head fully to the right and left..." 

Six months followup: "I'm doing heavy physical work again as part of my job, and despite needing occasional top-ups, I'm basically pain-free. Altogether, a phenomenal success."

Don Elwick, Managing Director, Brighton Media Centre (Cracked Ribs)

"On December 21st, 2009, I went out running, slipped on some ice, and fell heavily on my back. A nurse and a doctor both confirmed I had two or three cracked ribs. I spent the next week hardly sleeping due to the pain. On December 29th I saw Paul Lowe for a Scenar treatment, and that night I slept properly again. Over the next few days, almost all the pain had gone. I had a second Scenar treatment January 1st, and on January 4th, the doctor found it hard to believe there was nothing left from the accident."

"I had a very painful injury to my leg and I tried several therapies. Scenar was the best for really deep healing. Thank you Paul."

Tali Saar, Shiatsu and Cranio-Sacral Therapist, Lewes, Sussex (Facial Paralysis)

"I was treated by Paul Lowe for facial paralysis, I also had pain in my face and ear canal. The pains disappeared after the first two treatments, and soon there was a huge improvement in the paralysis and my energy levels. The treatments reminded me of a deep, relaxing place I had lost for many years. I experienced changes at many levels, far beyond my original symptoms. Paul has been both supportive and inspiring. He is a unique practitioner with vast knowledge in his field."

Erica Yonge, Energy Therapist, Marlborough, Wiltshire (Back Pain)

"Paul, I just wanted to say thank you so much for sorting out my back problem so effectively with Scenar. I was told I had a potential herniated disc in my lower back, and I was in a lot of pain for many years. In recent months, I was frequently unable to stand up straight for minutes at a time. After six Scenar sessions, not only am I completely pain free in my back for the first time in years, but my posture has corrected itself naturally. I wouldn't have believed I could be this pain free after so many years of pain.

Eighteen months followup: My back is still very good and posture is better than it's ever been. If you weren't so far away, I'd come for regular top-ups!"

Lucienne Atkinson, Business Owner, Oulston, Yorkshire  (Back Pain)

"Life had been years of debilitating pain. I was at my wit's end. Finding Paul Lowe and the Scenar treatment has been nothing short of a miracle for me. After two long treatments with him, the worst problem area for pain changed, almost disappeared."

18 months followup: "It's truly a miracle. I have gone back to the athletic person I was before. I can train hard on my mountain bike for 3 or 4 days in a row with no back pain!"

Tim Cornwall, Works Manager, Herstmonceaux, Sussex (Back Pain)

"I've had hip and lower back problems for over 30 years. This episode was the worst I've had for two years: I could hardly walk or drive. Until now, I'd go to the chiropractor for several treatments and take at least three weeks to recover. With Paul it took five days and four Scenar treatments to get back to normal. On day 1, I could barely walk. On day 3, I took the dog for a one-hour walk."

Barry Chapman, Designer, Hove, Sussex (Leg pain)

"I would recommend anybody with health challenges to talk to Paul. I had a combination of polymyalgia, extremely sore feet, low energy and limited mobility. I thought I had tried everything and had resigned myself to sliding down the slippery slope. Paul, his guidance and treatments, gave me hope when I had none, and for this I am extremely thankful. I've adjusted my lifestyle and diet and worked hard. I am now fit, energetic and strong."

Angela Gilroy, Media Designer, London (Back Pain)

"When I hurt my lower back, the pain made it impossible to move my right leg backwards when walking, so I had to shuffle. Paul Lowe gave me a brief Scenar treatment that night and I felt some relief immediately and got a good night's sleep. The next morning he gave me a full back treatment, and this produced a major change. It still felt a little tender but I could walk around almost normally."

Marco Crivello, Artist, Lewes, Sussex (Shoulder + Back Pain)

"I had acute pain in my right shoulder. I tried osteopathy and cranio-sacral over several weeks, but with negligible results. Paul treated me with Scenar daily for four days, and by the end I was pain-free. On another occasion, I was in acute pain months after Achilles tendon surgery -- after one treatment from Paul, the pain went away. I also threw my back out twice. Each time, one Scenar treatment was enough to put it back to normal."

Stephanie Davies-Arai, Sculptor, Lewes, Sussex (Back Pain)

"I was rushed to hospital on three occasions and given four strong painkillers including morphine. I finally collapsed at work in agony, unable to walk. After 10 daily treatments with Paul, I was able to stop the painkillers and drive 80 miles to a work event."

Six months followup: "I'm still pain free."

Phil Turtle, Company Director, Brighton  (Fracture, Post Surgery)

"I broke the humerus bone in my arm and had it operated on, in January 2014. I then had frequent Scenar and pulsed electromagnetic field treatments from Paul Lowe and quickly regained use of the arm. Five weeks after the operation, I saw my consultant and he was obviously shocked at how 'back to normal' my arm was at such an early stage."

Dolores Goodey, School Teacher,  Newhaven, Sussex  (Chronic Whiplash Pain)

"It works, and I tried everything. I have more energy and I'm sleeping well. I used to get aches all the way down my back but not now. I'm also impressed that the treatments had such long lasting effects."
