Scenar - Is the pain bad enough to try something new?

Scenar for Arthritis


Scenar Helps Arthritis


While by no means a cure on its own, Scenar can definitely help with arthritis pain. Depending on the person's overall health and lifestyle, I have seen a combination of Scenar with other technologies deliver remarkable results.

Whichever stage is present, from stiffness and occasional twinges to constant pain and joint deformity, arthritis is something to take seriously and to recognise the myths we've learned about it:

  • Arthritis is not just an inevitable consequence of aging: in the U.K., two thirds are under the age of 65, and 27,000 sufferers are under the age of 25, including 12,000 children.
  • Arthritis is not simply hereditary.
  • Arthritis is not treatable with just chondroitin, glucosamine and other supplements.
  • Arthritis is not just a result of wear and tear: recent research indicates that auto-immune issues are important in Osteoarthritis as well as Rheumatoid Arthritis.
  • It's never too late to start addressing it (although the extent of the damage done will affect how far Scenar can help).

Only one in eight people in the U.K. seeks treatment for their osteoarthritis, and even those with rheumatoid arthritis often let it slip until major damage has occurred. Yet the effects are generally progressive and can eventually produce almost constant pain.

The most obvious initial steps you can take are to change to a less inflammatory diet, add beneficial exercises and to reduce repetitive work and extreme sports activities that may be over-stressing your joints. Given a realistic chance, Scenar can then be a very useful adjunct therapy.


Osteoarthritis is the most common of this family of around 200 conditions. It especially affects the joints of the knees, hips, hands, neck and lower back. Joints with OA may feel warm and swollen, and become stiff after periods of inactivity.

Skeleton with ArthritisOver the age of 45, many people start to experience a hardening, shrinkage and even breaking down of the cushioning cartilage in their joints, causing arthritic pain and stiffness. By 65, most people have some level of osteoarthritis symptoms, although it will have started many years before it became painful. Those who intensely stress their joints through sports or at work may start to suffer in their forties (especially men) and fifties (women). 

With osteoarthritis, key factors are the flexibilty of the cartilage, which becomes more vulnerable to damage, and the quality of the synovial fluid which lines the joints. These together act as a cushion, shock absorber and lubricant. Bones may also thicken or change shape, often producing bone spurs. The joint space narrows, the cartilage degrades, and there may be direct bone to bone contact.

Usually osteoarthritis responds steadily to Scenar, especially if combined with another therapy, Pulsed Electro-magnetic Fields, and dietary changes. The speed of improvement  depends on how far the arthritis has progressed but it should be possible to see a gradual increase in the range of movement and mobility, and the range of activities that can be undertaken.


Rheumatoid ArthritisRheumatoid Arthritis is a serious and disabling degenerative disease. In RA, the immune system turns on its own body, in this case the lining of the joints, especially in the hands and feet. Rheumatoid Arthritis usually begins between 30 and 50 years old, and can destroy cartilage, bone, tendons and ligaments, causing permanent deformity and disability, clawing of fingers and toes, and in severe cases, internal organs, blood vessels and nerves.

Aside from temporary pain relief, Scenar may help by relaxing the Autonomic Nervous System, which appears to be a key factor in the progress of RA. However, it is important to be realistic and to recognise that Rheumatoid Arthritis presents a very difficult challenge, and will usually require a great deal of treatment to see any tangible progress.



Please note that these pages are for general information and not in any way intended to help you diagnose a medical condition. You should first seek a diagnosis from a doctor, and, if you decide to try Scenar therapy, work with your doctor in assessing the progress of the condition and the dosage of any drugs you may be taking.






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."

John Hayward, Engineer and Landscaper, Westham, Sussex (Neck + Shoulder Pain)

"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."
