Scenar Therapy/Physiokey Therapy


In 1998 I discovered Scenar. This electronic device, which is not an alternative therapy, but a medical device, registered with the TGA, helps relieve pain anywhere in the body.

This tool has very successfully helped me relieve clients’ pain alongside my massage techniques. Scenar therapy can help halve healing times when injured and help with pain and recovery in chronic or acute conditions.

I have now been treating people all over the world in Europe, England, Australia, New Zealand and America and Canada, helping them relieve their pain.

This is a relatively new therapy to Australia from Russia and is registered as a ‘drug free pain relief’. SCENAR accelerates the successful healing of a broad range of acute and chronic illnesses, injuries and disorders.

Physiokey, is a German version of Scenar and offers new and updated technology which I now also use.  It uses similar electronic neuro-muscular transmissions to heal the body from injury and pain.

Scenar has been used in Australia at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in the pain clinic and there have been some clinical trials conducted in Australia with the Macquarie University (2004) studying Scenar on neck pain. There have been many scientific studies carried out in Russia but have not been translated to English as yet.


Scenar treatment

Scenar treatment

S.C.E.N.A.R – is an acronym for Self-Controlled Energy Neuro Adaptive Regulator. Basically speaking Scenar is a hand held, two-way or ‘bio-feedback’ device and is an electrical based neuro-stimulation therapy. Scenar has exactly the same electrical frequency as our brain, therefore, it communicates to the body the same way the brain does, through electrical information that travels through our neural pathways to the injured or malfunctioning site in the body. Although similar to the TENS machine, often used by physiotherapists, it is more advanced. This is because it receives electrical information from the body first and then changes its signal back into the body accordingly. Therefore, this is far more sophisticated than the TENS machine.

It was developed in the first instance for the Russian space programme to overcome the unique problems of space travel and has been dubbed the ‘Star Trek’ device as a result. A team of doctors and scientists in the 1970s developed a method of treatment that was energy efficient, multi-applicable & portable.  In the UK it is licensed by the British Standards Institute and in Russia it has been authorised for clinical use by the Health Ministry of Russia in 1986. It is currently used worldwide very successfully.


Our bodies adjust to the many external environmental and internal influences to maintain what we call ‘homeostasis’, ie balance, stability or a constant, for example the regulation of temperature or PH. When the body is unable to adjust to maintain homeostasis it may experience physical dysfunction or pathology. Scenar helps the body to regain homeostasis by treating asymmetries which tell us where homeostasis is not present.

Scenar acts non-invasively through the skin where its electrical impulses, the parameters of which are similar to endogenous nerve impulses, are transmitted through the skin to the nervous system. Each impulse is different from the previous one as it changes according to the body’s responses. It is in continuous two-way communication with the body (bio-feedback). Serotonin and Opiate, our body’s natural painkillers, are also activated and delivered into the bloodstream and because these biochemicals last up to several hours or more, the healing process will continue long after the treatment is over. The effects of this change in chemistry on the Central Nervous System will also result in the treatment of one area aiding with the treatment of other imbalances. This goes some way to explaining how old and often forgotten problems are brought to the surface for treatment.


As biofeedback technology Scenar doesn’t treat any condition itself, but stimulates the healing processes of the body. The most pronounced effect after application is pain relief of any origin, which lasts a lot longer than use of regular means of pain control and there are no side effects, it cannot harm you in any way.

If you are in pain or suffering from dysfunction of the auto-immune, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, neurological, skin, dental or endocrine systems, Scenar may help you. Scenar can specifically help with musculoskeletal injuries, back pain, arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, bronchitis, eczema, allergies, psoriasis, hormonal imbalances, stroke, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and migraines or acute and chronic pain anywhere in the body. Scenar has been found to be beneficial with nutritional and metabolic disorders as well as stress and depression.
In Russia many health practitioners currently use the device as their principal instrument of treatment. As well as being used on most types of disorders or injuries, it has also been found to be beneficial with nutritional and metabolic disorders, stress and depression.

Scenar is further credited with vastly reducing recovery times. In accident and emergency wards its ability to aid recovery is used to help those with burns, fractures, insect bites, allergic reactions, cardiac arrest, trauma, coma and many types of extreme sports injuries.


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 receive scenar treatment. Children and animals can be treated safely.


After a client assessment, Scenar treatment will be performed according to the patient’s needs. The Scenar device runs over the spine or affected area and a tingling/stroking sensation will be felt. Patients having Scenar treatment also need to take responsibility for their health themselves and are advised to participate actively in the treatment and recovery process. The treatment times are usually an hour at a time and patients generally experience an increase in energy, more refreshing sleep and an improved sense of well-being.


In order to create a sufficient flow of circulating regulative peptides Scenar action must be given more frequently at the beginning of the course of treatments. As one improves, the frequency can be gradually reduced. Treatment will vary from individual to individual and will depend on pathological process, person’s age, overall state of health, lifestyle and if the condition is chronic or acute and the cause of the problem.

CASE STUDIES – I have too many to mention all of them but here are a few:-

Female 30 yr old – nutritionist for Olympic Boxing Team had not been menstruating for 6 yrs – doctors could not help and she could not concieve. After two sessions with Scenar on the pituitary gland the client’s menstrual cycle returned to normal. The client was so impressed she also trained in Scenar & is now a practicing therapist in the UK.
Male 35 yr old – an ex-army officer currently lecturing sports science at University suffering from asthma and sinusitis had been on a steroid inhaler for 5 yrs. One session of Scenar cleared his sinuses and after a second session he has not had to use his steroid inhaler for asthma again.
Male 29 yr old – injured during an endurance competition was diagnosed by his physiotherapist with a herniated (slipped) disc. Scenar demands the release of the body’s anti-inflammatory chemicals and after only 4 sessions the need for an operation was prevented because the inflammation was reduced and the protrusion of the disc was reversed.


SCENAR FOR ANIMALS – CASE STUDIES – again too many to mention all of them – here are a few examples:-

Animal Case Study # 1
Successful treatment of racehorse – after 6 months of unsuccessful conventional treatment for tendon damage scenar was applied and after four sessions the horse was no longer lame and back in training.
Animal Case Study # 2
Successful treatment of arthritis in dog’s back leg – pet dog’s arthritis in back leg became so severe the dog could barely walk. After several scenar sessions the dog was able to move around more freely and was obviously in less pain.
