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

Scenar - What the Papers Say


Scenar Media Stories" For one of the most injury prone players in the sport (Dan Luger) ... (the Scenar) provides some insurance against further damage... 'I've used (Scenar) for problems with my neck and groin and there's no doubt it speeds up recovery.' " England rugby international Dan Luger in The Daily Mail, October 2003

"I am no medical man, so I cannot say for sure how much I owe to the machine (Scenar). But put it this way, the day before I started using it, I did a 20-minute run on the treadmill and really struggled on level eight. After three days of treatment, I did the same run on level 15 and didn't feel it at all." England rugby international Mike Catt in the Mirror.

" Scars remain when the body has not completed its healing process. A device called Scenar... is undergoing trials in this country, but in Russia, where it has been much used, it has been shown to encourage healing. The machine is held close to the part of the body that needs healing and emits electronic impulses that stimulate the brain to complete the healing process. "  The Guardian, February 2003


" Australian-born Olympic hopeful Theodora Spathis is resorting to space-age technology. Atter injuring her achilles tendon last May, Spathis has been undergoing Scenar treatment (developed for cosmonauts in the Soviet era), which releases small electrical impulses into the muscles to cause the brain to release natural healing compounds. "  The Guardian, February 2012


" Olympic hopeful Emma Nedov; a teenage gymnast from Sydney who is the reigning Commonwealth World Junior Champion on the beam apparatus has been using RITM SCENAR® since she was 10 years old and credits the device for enabling her to recover from her frequent injuries and get back to training in the shortest possible time. Together with Jo Brigden Jones, who has qualified for the London Olympics in the Sprint Kayaking event, they are using RITM SCENAR® as a vital element in their Olympic preparation. " PRWeb, February 2012


" Personal trainer Theodora Spathis is going for gold - thanks to Soviet space age technology. The Sheffield-based hepathlete aims to represent the country of her birth at the London Olympics this year. An Achilles tendon injury threatened to dash the Australian’s chances of competing. Then she discovered Scenar therapy - developed by the Soviets to treat cosmonauts who were not allowed to use pharmaceutical drugs while on space missions. Now Theodora is back up and running and jumping and throwing her way towards her Olympic dream. The Scenar is a battery-powered, handheld device, which is brushed over an area of inflammation or pain, releasing gentle electrical impulses, similar to those produced by the nervous system. These are sent to the brain, stimulating the release of powerful, natural healing compounds.Theodora, from Carter Knowle, who works at the Virgin gym in Heeley, is being treated by Alla Cranham, who runs In Vivo Health and Beauty in Nottingham. She says the results have been dramatic, with an immediate and long-lasting reduction in pain. Theodora, aged 28, said: “Scenar therapy has played a massive part in my recovery, without a doubt. I would not have recovered in time without it. It has made all the difference. I had an Achilles tendon injury in May last year, tried a few remedies, acupuncture, physio, herbal but nothing worked - this has.” Theodora is hoping to build up enough points by the end of June to qualify for a place in the Australian Olympic squad. Then she will be taking on the world’s best, including Sheffield’s gold medal hope Jessica Ennis. Theodora said: “I’m confident of making the squad. I’m not up to Jessica’s standards yet, but I’m getting better.” The Star, Sheffield, February 2012


" It looks like a TV remote control, but a new device is offering people in Sussex the chance to try out an alternative treatment for their health problems. The inventors of the Self-Controlled Neuro Adaptive Regulation (Scenar) originally created it to treat Russian astronauts in space. Scientists were asked to devise a way of treating health problems during space flights because, with urine being recycled as drinking water, taking drugs was out of the question. The machine is believed to be able to heal health complaints through electrical current stimulation which encourages the body to heal itself. It is pressed on to the skin where the pain is, and emits a low electrical current. This triggers the body's natural and potent healing powers by creating a link between the brain and the part of the body that needs healing. The brain is kick-started into releasing self-healing chemicals such as serotonin that speed up and enhance the rate of recovery of the illness or injury. The Argus newspaper (Sussex), November 30, 2002


" It's only a little black box, but it may turn out to be a medical miracle. It looks like something out of Star Trek, and indeed, the latest weapon in the war to keep us healthy was developed by Russian scientists to ensure that cosmonauts stayed fighting fit as they floated in the stratosphere. A little black box of tricks that looks exactly like a TV remote control: run it over the body, and the device's electrical currents are said to stimulate the body to repair itself. It sounds too good to be true. Yet in Russia the Scenar (Self-controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulation) won its inventors the prestigious Order of Lenin - the equivalent of the Nobel Prize... James Colthurst, a surgeon and qualified homeopath who was also the late Princess Diana's confidant and allegedly the go-between for her and the author Andrew Morton, was among the first to use the invention in this country. Its approval by the medical authorities here, however, is as a pain agent - and this is the only official medical claim that is being made for it. " The Scotsman, January 26, 2000

" Sorrel Warwick, a 56-year old BHSAI and accredited eventing trainer, admits to being impressed by the speed at which Scenar therapy helped one of her charges to recover from a potentially serious leg problem. Top National Hunt racehorse Avanti Express had pulled a superficial flexor tendon and the thoroughbred's owner agreed to Sorrel's suggestion that Roger (Meacock, a vet using Scenar) be called in. He arrived, along with another vet, on the day the injury was detected. Over a period of about three months, Roger treated Avanti Express twice a week for the first two weeks, followed by once a week, then once a fortnight and finally once a month," esplains Sorrel, who runs Wiltshire-based Cholderton Equestrian Centre. "I expected the injury to have left a thicker tendon, but now you really have to look hard to see any evidence of it. The horse came back to win two races. I had used Scenar therapy with other horses and found the device helpful in speeding up recovery. I thought that it would trigger Avanti Express's body into instigating its own healing process, which is what seems to have happened." Sorrel, who also found the treatment beneficial in easing an arthritic wrist, says that she is a great supporter of alternative therapies like Scenar, although she firmly believes in combining a particular horse and problem with the right treatment. "Scenar therapy has a serious place when it comes to sports horses," she adds. "Especially due to the need for non-invasive treatments in order to comply with Jockey Club rules. " 
Horse magazine, December 2003 
" If you suffer from chronic pain, or often find yourself reaching for analgesics, ENAR (a model of Scenar) may offer a better solution... a hand-held electronic device that communicates with your body's nervous system to help promote healing as well as reduce pain. This non-invasive, non-toxic and energy-efficient form of therapy has been used to treat a range of health problems, including tendonitis, back pain, ulcers, burns, allergies and even musculoskeletal injuries. " Better Homes and Gardens magazine, May 2007  

" You may never have thought it would take a team of Russian scientists to relieve your aches and pains, but that's exactly the kind of know-how the ENAR (a type of Scenar) therapy system is built on. The hand-held device combines Western electrical biofeedback with Eastern energy medicine to treat a diverse range of disorders. Also very effective against stress and muscle tension, (Scenar) is often described as 'acupuncture without the needles' and communicates with the body's nervous system through an electrical pulse that clears and regulates neuro-energy pathways.

Space age treatment is making a world of difference

ARTHRITIS and asthma sufferers in the Capital are being offered a new treatment first used on Russian cosmonauts in the 1970s.

The Scenar technique, developed to provide healthcare for the Russian space programme, uses electrical signals to stimulate the immune system.

Nur Mohammed, who works from an alternative therapy centre in Edinburgh, is one of only two practitioners in Scotland who can use the equipment.

The technology for Scenar was developed by a team of Russian doctors and scientists who were looking for a method of treatment that was portable, energy efficient and non-invasive and which would avoid them having to take drugs and equipment into space.

The solution they came up with is a device which is about the same size as a TV remote control and is hooked to a patient’s body using an electrode.

Scenar, which stands for Self Controlled Energo Neuro Adaptive Regulator, stimulates the body’s own immune system, encouraging it to heal itself.

It emits an electrical impulse which is similar to a human neural impulse and stimulates the body's neural fibres. The Scenar finds damaged cells and sends an "impulse" to the brain, which responds by attempting to harmonise the frequency omitted by the damaged cell.

It also causes the body to release serotonin and opiates, which are the body’s natural pain killers.

The device has been used to treat a number of different illnesses, from Alzheimers and arthritis to eye diseases, skin conditions and dental ailments.

Mr Mohammed has treated around 120 people with the device and charges around 30 a session at the AJP clinic in Lyne Street, Abbeyhill.

He said: "The skin is like a computer screen which displays information on bioelectrical activity. The electrode is placed on the skin and connected to the body through the electrical sockets placed on the skin. It starts to read what’s happening inside the body and looks for information about problems. It could be a damaged knee or an asthmatic chest. It reprogrammes that information. If people are using drugs to help their condition, dosage can be reduced. The treatment is very effective and very fast."

One patient who has benefited from the treatment is Rob Phelan, who developed chronic asthma about four years ago.

He went from being healthy and active to being completely dependent on steroids and suffered frequent asthma attacks.

He had to use different inhalers four or five times a day and often had sleepless nights because of the asthma attacks.

But after a series of sessions using Scenar, he has almost totally given up his inhaler and is able to lead a normal life again.

Mr Phelan, 36, who lives in Liberton, said: "There was very little result from using the steroids. I had tried out all sorts of herbal remedies, but nothing worked. I was very sceptical about trying Scenar, but I had about ten sessions initially and by the third one it was obvious that it was cutting down my inhaler use. Now I hardly have to use it at all.

"If I go out, I don’t have to worry about where my inhalers are - I don’t even have to carry them around with me. I was shocked to find that something so simple could work. It’s incredible."

The method has been widely adopted in Russia, where 600 practitioners have used the treatment on 50,000 patients.

It is only now beginning to filter through to the UK, where there are 60 practitioners.



Well Being magazine - GP Dr. Virginia Reid discusses Scenar in a wider energy medicine framework:


" Eastern Medicine Meets Western Technology. It was dubbed "the Star Trek Device" by the European press, after the all-curing, energetic medical device used on that popular science fiction series. Cures have been claimed from it for all types of disorders - circulatory, respiratory, neurological, genito-urinary, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, immune, psychological... 


Ironically, the Scenar was never used in space, but its technology is helping to solve the health-care crisis in Russia, and it could also help solve the health-care crisis in the West. The device works on diseases and dysfunctions of every kind by acting systemically on the energy field of the body... Results reported.. have been remarkable. There seem to be very few ailments that it cannot alleviate or cure. To date, over 50,000 cases have been reported involving the device... A large body of information available from research papers, clinical reports and training manuals indicates that, overall, the Scenar is effective in about 80% of cases (where "effectiveness" is defined as a cure in two-thirds of cases and significant improvement in the remainder)... 


The scenar heals by using neuropeptides, the internal pharmacy of chemicals by which the body is kept in physiological balance. Without regulatory peptides being produced by the nerves, the body can adapt to disease states, which may be caused by injury, injection or toxicity. The Scenar stimulates the nervous system to produce its regulatory peptides, thereby prompting the body to heal itself... Because these peptides last for up to several hours, the healing process continues long after the treatment is over.  

The healing process is ongoing for another reason. Disease occurs where portions of the body have been blocked from communication with the energetic system that keeps it in balance. The Scenar begins a dialogue with these blocked areas. Once the lines of communication have been re-established, the information-starved areas keep on talking. They want to stretch and move and come back to life. Healing is reported not only in the nervous system, but in conjunction with other chemical imbalances, correcting sleeplessness, appetite, behavioural problems, learning ability, memory, sexual function, and overall physical health. 


Arguably, these results could be ascribed to the placebo effect, but British veterinarian, Roger Meacock has achieved results in animals. He has successfully treated horses, pigs, cattle, sheep, dogs and cats with the Scenar, and has found it to be the best available treatment, particularly for musculoskeletal injuries in horses as it gives rapid, profound healing to tendon and ligament injuries. As for the principles behind Scenar treatment, Dr. Meacock explains that the body has a finite amount of energy that must be divided among multiple functions. Its essential survival functions are energy replacement (feeding), reproduction and the fight-or-flight response. Injuries need to be repaired, but only sufficiently for the organism to maintain its survival functions. When repair reaches that level, the stressed organism with insufficient energy for its needs abandons the healing process and returns to eating, reproducing and fleeing enemies. The Scenar works on an information level to remind the body that it still has repair work to do... 


No unwanted side effects have been demonstrated from (the Scenar) in over 20 years of use in Russia and Europe. The impulses sent by the device are similar to the body's own nerve impulses and are quite safe, even for children and pregnant women... Russian research indicates that for long-lasting effectiveness, chronic problems may need treatment three or four times a week for up to six weeks. Acute problems, however, often resolve after only one or two treatments. Fresh injuries or acute inflammatory processes may require intensive treatment once or twice daily for several weeks. They should reduce gradually as the condition improves. " Natural Health and Vegetarian Life magazine, Winter 2007 












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."

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."
