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

" 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. "

" 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
" 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,
" 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,

" 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. "

" 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.

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
He went from being healthy and active to being completely dependent on steroids and suffered frequent asthma
He had to use different inhalers four or five times a day and often had sleepless nights because of the
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
It is only now beginning to filter through to the UK, where there are 60 practitioners.

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
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
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
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
