Technology Scenar

The SCENAR device works through your skin (transdermal).
It uses computer-modulated, electrical impulses to stimulate your brain (electroneuro-stimulator).


SCENAR stimulates C-fibres in the peripheral nervous system
The electrical impulses produced by your SCENAR device are similar to the body’s own neurological impulses, so the body reacts positively to them. They are particularly effective, compared with other technologies, at stimulating C-fibres.

70% of nerves in your body are C-fibres. Much smaller than other nerves, they are found in every part of the body. They carry sensory information from the periphery to the brain and produce a lot of neuropeptides.

SCENAR technology is unique because it genuinely interacts with the body’s own healing mechanisms, communicating directly with the nervous system to stimulate neuropeptide release.

The flexibility of SCENAR to adapt is its key to success, and yours!

“SCENAR works by making the body’s own communication systems operate more efficiently. Technically it is a complex device, which sends electronic impulses via the skin to the brain but it was designed to be used by anybody without any special medical training. You use it in contact with the skin over the affected area or organ and it sends an amplified signal of pain to the brain. This causes the brain to trigger the body’s immune system, which, after only a few minutes of treatment, the patient starts feeling much better.“ – Alexander Karasev, Founding researcher.

Electronic stimulation of the nervous system has been used in hospitals worldwide for some time, in order to alleviate pain in birth and in cases where pain medication is not appropriate. An example of this is the TENS machine. It transmits electrical impulses – programmed to work just as endogenous nerve impulses do — through the skin to the nervous system. Scenar advances this process to a new dimension.


Use of the TENS approach is somewhat limited to short-term acute pain because the machines currently used send out uniform impulses. This means before long, your body gets used to the signals and they cease to cause a reaction. The machine becomes ineffective and, over time, may be counter-productive. SCENAR is the next generation of pain treatment.

The SCENAR enables practitioners to communicate directly with a client’s central nervous system, stimulating the natural adaptive processes of the body and nervous system so that the body can heal itself. The SCENAR sends electronic impulses through the nerve fibres, causing the brain to release a measured dose of the body’s own powerful internal pharmacy of bio-active compounds directly to the site of pain. Included in this is are neuropeptides, some of the most powerful pain relief agents the body produces, and widely regarded as some of the most powerful healing compounds.

  • Builds new nervous system responses
  • Uses biofeedback for individualised output
  • Stimulates neuro-peptide production

Holding a real-time conversation with the body’s own healing systems SCENAR relies on the fact that the body is a large, bio-electrical machine which uses complex feedback mechanisms to maintain stable internal conditions. This process is called homeostasis.

Homeostatic mechanisms are regulated by nerve signals which release biologically active chemicals called neuro-mediators into the body; the most important of these are neuropeptides.

The aim of SCENAR therapy is to induce the release of enough neuropeptides to relieve pain and initiate a healing sequence through the body’s own active feedback mechanisms.

SCENAR’s unique bio-feedback capability

Electronic stimulation of the nervous system is widely used in hospitals to alleviate pain. Like other bio-electrical devices, SCENAR transmits electrical impulses, from an electrode in its hand-held unit, through the skin to the nervous system.

The difference lies in the ability of SCENAR to react to changes in the body’s response to those impulses. The device monitors changes in the electrical impedance of the skin (a measure of its resistance to electrical current flowing through it), detecting any impedance changes as the body reacts to its impulses. It then responds in kind, adjusting strength, frequency and timing for the optimal response.


The SCENAR enables practitioners to communicate directly with a client’s central nervous system, stimulating the natural adaptive processes of the body and nervous system so that the body can heal itself.

Primary and secondary signs of an illness

How you use SCENAR is determined by the appearance and location of primary and secondary signs of a health problem, or problems, on your patient’s body.
Primary signs refer to the patient’s complaints such as pain, inflammation, swelling or a loss of sensation. Other primary signs include obvious injuries such as wounds, rashes, ulcers, scars and discolorations.

Secondary signs are the patient’s response to SCENAR treatment. They can be any localized changes that take place during or immediately after treatment and don’t necessarily appear on the immediate area under treatment.

Performing a SCENAR treatment

A planned treatment course is a pre-set algorithm aimed at stimulating the body to deploy its own healing mechanisms. The treatment session lasts around one hour for most people. For acute injuries the treatment time is usually about 30 minutes. The practitioner brushes the hand-held device over the appropriate zone until the patient feels a slight tingling sensation. It may be slightly uncomfortable but not painful. The patient encouraged to report any changes or sensations experienced.

The aim is to achieve a change in your patient’s condition during the treatment and in some cases they may feel worse immediately after the treatment. In most cases a patient requires a minimum of 3 treatments (some acute conditions may resolve sooner). Further treatment may be performed on the area of pain after the initial treatment and can take place up to several times a day, with a minimum of two hours between each session.


A tried and tested therapy for more than 40 years
SCENAR has been reviewed in medical journals globally since it was developed in the 1970s for the Soviet Union space project.

Over the past four decades a large body of case studies has been built up supporting the benefits of the device created by inventor Alexander Karasev.

They tend to agree that when used properly, SCENAR can produce startlingly swift results from the start of treatment in cases that would otherwise require invasive surgery under orthodox western medicine practice.

As a result of those studies, some of which are linked below, SCENAR has been adopted by health practitioners worldwide and could provide huge benefits and savings for governmental health budgets.
