SCENAR Frequently Asked Questions
How often will I need treatment?
In order to create a continuous flow of circulating regulative peptides, SCENAR action must be given quite often. For any fresh injury or any acute inflammatory process, treatment needs to be intensive, ideally once or even twice daily. For chronic conditions, treatments are ideally given three or four times per week initially. As things improve, the frequency can be reduced.
A course of treatments will vary from individual to individual and takes into account such factors as the stage of the pathological process, the person’s age, state of health, and so on.
Is it safe?
As the SCENAR impulse is similar to endogenous nerve impulses, it is non-damaging and safe. Only people with cardiac pacemakers are not allowed to have SCENAR treatment. Children and pregnant women can be treated, and even animals enjoy it!
What about my conventional treatment?
If you are receiving treatment from your doctor, it makes sense to inform him about SCENAR therapy. Treatment with SCENAR may enable you to reduce or even stop taking some medication, which can be done under the supervision of your doctor.
What else do I need to know?
During the treatment of chronic conditions, occasionally, a healing crisis may occur (experienced as a malaise and a complete lack of energy). This arises if the body is getting rid of toxic energy too rapidly. There are techniques that can be used with the SCENAR to manage this. For best results, it is advisable not to bathe or shower for two hours before and after treatment. It may be necessary to shave an area of the skin to ensure good communication between the device and the nervous system. Patients generally experience increased energy, more refreshing sleep, and an improved sense of well-being.
How does it differ from other therapies?
There are several ways in which it differs from other electrical therapies. Unlike TENS machines, each impulse is different from the previous one, so the body cannot adapt to the signal. The SCENAR impulse is high amplitude, so it stimulates C-fibers, which make up about 85% of the nerves in the body. This explains the quick effectiveness of SCENAR therapy on the whole body.
The SCENAR may affect the operation of cardiac pacemakers, particularly demand-type pacemakers. It does not stimulate directly on the eyes or over the carotid sinus.
SCENAR has met regulatory Requirements for marketing in the USA. The NeuroSCENAR 97.5, biofeedback-controlled electro-stimulator, is regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration under 21 CFR 882.5050, Generic Name: Device, Biofeedback, Product Code HCC, Class II exempt from 510(k) pre-market notification according to FDA Notice (Federal Register), Jan. 21, 1998, p. 84) as a battery-powered, professional-use device for relaxation training and muscle re-education.
