While researching modern electro-magnetic medicine technologies I stumbled upon a biofeedback technology called SCENAR, which stands for Self-Controlled Energy Neuro-Adaptive Regulator. This technology originates from Russia’s cold war years and was a secret until Perestroyka came and at which point it was declassified and became available to the mere mortals.

The Gist of This Paper
If you’re in a rush and would like to get a visual gist of the article, here is this article represented as a word cloud, where words that appear more frequently in text are represented by a larger font.
This word cloud was made with a cool free wordle tool by Jonathan Feinberg by feeding it the text of this article, including the comments as of Jan 6, 2015.
Introduction to SCENAR
The technology was originally developed for the Russian Space Program to help cosmonauts maintain their health while in space. From my reading it appears that it is not being used by their cosmonauts these days but many health facilities and multiple private individuals deploy this technology daily with a great success.
SCENAR is reported to be one of the most effective complementary therapies, with success reports ranging from simple injuries and pains to difficult neurological problems. It not only deals quickly with fresh injuries and acute pain, it helps resolve chronic issues where nothing else seems to work. SCENAR has been used successfully in the treatment of: Cardiovascular System, Dental Diseases, Endocrine System, Gastrointestinal System, Immune System, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Nervous System, Respiratory System and Urogenital System.
During a SCENAR session, the recipient feels only a gentle tingle and/or stroking sensation, as the device is moved over the spine, abdomen, infected area or other relevant portions of the bare skin. The SCENAR’s signals changes in response to body changes, thus preventing adaptation or habituation.
In a few words this is a very advanced biofeedback technology that has been polished for the last 40+ years, which interacts directly with the patient’s brain and activates their body’s healing mechanisms. The most recent generation of this technology called COSMODIC can even help body regenerate tissues and organs, and it accomplishes it rather fast. It can be used with great efficacy by medical professionals and lay persons. Some devices are more suitable for professionals and have more manual override modes, others have been designed to be almost fully automatic so that even a child or an elderly person could figure out how to use.
As of this writing there are not too many SCENAR practitioners out there, so unless you’re lucky and find one in your vicinity you may need to acquire one of the devices. Luckily most of these devices have been designed to be easily used by the uninitiated.
As with most technologies these days, there is a lot of competition, copy-cats, disputes, litigation, confusing names of the products, forums full of flame wars, which doesn’t help the customer to make educated choices. Each manufacturer says that their product is the one true SCENAR and the competitors are just pretending that they have the right technology and they don’t. So it’s very difficult to get an understanding of what’s going on and receive an unbiased representation of the state of things. Since I spent many hours reading all possible forums and websites I could find on the subject, both in English and Russian, the following is a summary of my research, so that you won’t have to do it all over again. I’m not selling any of the devices and at the time of this writing I don’t even own one yet, so I will do my best to present an unbiased view of SCENAR world. I will post updates as I gain my own first hand experience with SCENAR devices.
There are many competing brands, most of which provide only SCENAR technology and only one supports COSMODIC. Some of these enterprises are lead by scientists from the original development team, others were reverse-engineered. It’s difficult to tell whether the devices created through reverse-engineering are as good as the ones created by the original developers, but reading various forums it’s clear that they all work well, so even the cheaper rip-offs have been often reported as fixing various ailments and being rather good at it, either because the technology works even if it’s not refined, or because there is a strong placebo effect or both — the fact is the majority of the SCENAR technology users report a significant improvement of their prior condition.
Bird’s View on the SCENAR Kingdom
The philosophy of Scenar Therapy was created by Dr. Gorfinkel and Dr. Revenko. The authors of various Scenar patents are Dr. Karasev, Dr. Revenko, Dr. Kibirev, Dr. Zaharevich, Dr. Nechushkin and Dr. Zenkin. The two true original branches of Scenar were created by Dr. Karasev and Dr. Revenko, the rest of devices are mostly licensed or unlicensed derivatives and/or copy-cats. Apparently some devices that claim to be of the SCENAR family are actually not such, and provide only very basic TENS-like functionality.
Here is the current state of affairs in the SCENAR world:

- In the first column each company name is linked to their respective website (if they have one).
- In the last column I included the approximate prices which I found online. Most vendors hide the price and you have to contact a whole bunch of them to find out the price. Some manufacturers enforce fixed prices across all distributors, others allow prices to vary. Most manufacturers don’t sell the devices directly to consumers. Prices for the same device may vary wildly from one country to another.
Other SCENAR or SCENAR-like devices that weren’t listed above include:
- Auto-SCENAR – Netherlands-made based on OKB RITM license
- SpaceHealer – HK-made RITM clone, sold in NZ
- DermaKey – Germany-made
Note to manufacturers: I only have access to two of the SCENAR products that I purchased myself and you can see from the comments people ask me questions about devices that I have no access to, so if you’d like me to review your SCENAR device please contact me to arrange a delivery of a sample.
SCENAR works by stimulating the immune system and assisting the body to heal more rapidly and it does it well. After SCENAR technology has been around for 20 years, Dr. Karasev invented a new technology called COSMODIC, for improved healing with complex issues and chronic conditions. It tries to mimic body’s own physiological signals, which are much more subtle yet have a more profound effect. This technology operates at the cellular level, and therefore can restore cells to their normal functionality, which leads to cellular regeneration, and in advanced cases triggering stem cells to regenerate damaged tissues.
Comparatively to SCENAR, COSMODIC is fully automated and under the default auto-pilot mode the user just needs to touch the device to their skin and the treatment will commence on its own and complete when the required dosage has been delivered. While having the knowledge of the body is always helpful for one working to heal, no formal training is required to operate this technology.
This technology has been under an active development and new improvements are released all the time.
As of this writing only devices made by LET Medical Laboratories provide the COSMODIC functionality.
Further there are passive and active versions of the technology. Most devices are passive, which means that the signal is continually adjusted until the right location is reached (think many strokes to get the golf ball into the hole and the ball can’t be controlled while it’s moving). And then there is the active version, where the subsequent signal is created based on a more complicated extrapolation of all the previous signals and body responses (think the same game of golf except the golfer carries the ball in hand rather than hitting it, but this time the ball is heavy so he needs to take several breaks before reaching the pit, so it will still take a few iterations but it’ll be much more efficient time-wise – i.e. much faster healing). The EX735Ag model is only one as of this writing that implements the active mode.
Current COSMODIC models are:
PS705 Mini (aka C-Dove) (2006) is used primary as a first aid device, and is not suitable for long term treatments. It’s the cheapest model, though quite effective at the same time.
VX735Ag (2002) is a professional and not fully automatic device (you need to set the action modes and energy manually). It primarily uses SCENAR stimulation and secondary COSMODIC regeneration.
Scenar 035M (MyoScen) (aka DOVE) (2006). it is not a successor of any previous device. Output stage is like it was in ENS-03 but upgraded. It’s very good when working with acute injuries and is very simple to use. It got upgraded in 2012.
EX735Ag supersedes VX735Ag and unites two most efficient technologies SCENARand COSMODIC, providing automatic switching of the two technologies based on which the body needs at the moment. This makes it much easier to use even by a non-experienced person. There have been four iterations of this model so far:
- EX735Ag (2007) was the first generation
- EX735Ag Modific (2009) – faster regeneration effects
- EX735Ag Modific Slider (2011) – acting impluse automatically “slides” between Scenar & Cosmodic
- EX735Ag Slider x2 (2013) – give the body exactly what it “asks” for
EX735Ag Slider x2 come with variations of standard vs. wide electrodes, and then basic vs. advanced functionality.
As of this writing EX735Ag Slider x2 is the fastest, most powerful and most expensive model.
[update: in 2016 a new device ENS has been released by LET Medical. I don’t have access to one at this moment, so I can’t comment on it]
EX715Ag (2005) and PS705Ag (2007) models use only the COSMODIC technology, and were created as a compromise to provide a more affordable solution for those who can’t afford EX735Ag. These models are also useful as a second device to have around in your medical toolkit. EX715Ag has more functions over the PS705Ag model. PS705Ag Mini (2009) is the miniature yet very powerful version which uses permanent magnetic electrodes and is better suitable for traveller’s needs.
If you have to choose between SCENAR and COSMODIC, the latter would be a better choice, since it is efficient in treatment of wider range of conditions than SCENAR. The best results are reached when both technologies are used.
Model names ending with Ag are the ones with pure silver electrodes, without Ag ending – stainless steel electrodes are used. Gold electrodes are available on demand.
LET Medical Laboratories website lists only a handful of distributors around the world and prices on the devices are relatively fixed, you might get a slight discount here and there, but not much. I was able to reach only 5 official distributors listed on their website when I was inquiring about prices. I was told that there are many more distributors who aren’t listed on LET Medical Laboratories’ website. I think a lot of the devices are sold via practitioners who recommend the product directly to their clients.
How Does SCENAR Therapy Feel?
SCENAR therapy is non-invasive, non-damaging, and non-addictive. The device is touched to the skin and the electric signal it emits is felt like a gentle tingling. Problematic areas of the body may feel slightly more sensitive, but still gentle.
SCENAR Therapy Side-Effects and Contraindications
There should be no side-effects, other than possible fatigue if one overdoes the therapy – body needs time to do its restorative process, so one shouldn’t rush the process. Since the impulses sent by the device are similar to the body’s own impulses, these are quite safe, even for children.
It’s not recommended to use SCENAR devices with:
- Pregnancy (some sites say ok, some not)
- Cardiac Pacemaker and other electrical implants
- Cardiac fibrillation
- Individual intolerance (in few users)
- Alcohol intoxication
- Serious psychiatric disorders
- Acute infectious diseases of unknown origin (at the site of infection)
How Many SCENAR Treatments Will I Need?
It depends on the severity of the condition and how long it has been present. A lot of people get a huge improvement after just one treatment, and for acute problems usually disappear in 2-3 sessions. Difficult chronic conditions could take up to 10 treatments, after which if the condition is still there the overall state is usually much improved. Treatments can be given every few days, but not too too often since the body needs time to do the healing before it’s ready for more input.
Most treatments are about 30-60 minutes.
Any other therapies can be combined with SCENAR treatments.
Reading various SCENAR forums surprisingly I mainly found very positive testimonials. The few “didn’t-work-for-me” posts were made by those who used questionable copy-cat devices. Here are a few samples of positive feedback that I found online:
I am a golf player, but due to my condition I had been unable to play golf for two years. I had severe back pain, constant stiffness and I was unable to move my neck. I decided to have Scenar treatment in combination with acupuncture. Even though I had only one treatment a week, within five weeks I had no pain in my back, all my symptoms have disappeared and now I am back playing golf! — Mr B. P.
I had pain in my right thigh and right heel and I had had it for a quite long time. I also had stiff back and periodically pain in my back. For six months I had tried everything, the pain was still there. After the first Scenar treatment I had a great improvement in my condition and then I had another three treatments the following week with the Scenar and the pain completely went, there is still some stiffness in my back and I am carrying on the treatment course. –Mrs. G.L.
I was diagnosed five years ago with a rare condition – focal dystonia, where my arm continuously moved without control, and would lock at the front. I was unable to write, or drive and to do everyday movements. I travelled around the world trying to find a cure for my condition. I was told there is no known cure. From my acupuncturist I heard about Scenar treatment. We had an intensive course of treatment over a couple of months. We have made steady, but significant progress. I can drive again and I recently started writing again. My arm is less prone to involuntary locking. At the moment I am continuing with my treatment, I believe it is just a little way to go. –Mr N. H.
Which SCENAR Device To Buy?
It’s so difficult to make choices these days, and choosing a SCENAR device is double so, since you first need to choose one of the many manufacturers, and then choose one of the many models each provides.
Based on my readings it appears that all SCENAR devices work well, just some are better than the others, so this is very helpful to know. And it appears that unbiased experts recommend LET Medical Laboratories devices especially the ones combining SCENAR and COSMODIC technologies in one device. AcuScen Pro (no longer manufactured) and RITM devices subjectively appear to be on the second place, and the rest of the devices in third place. Now I could be completely wrong here, since I’m only giving this suggestion based on the hundreds of websites and forum posts that I’ve sifted through to compile this information.
Ideally if you’re very rich you could buy all of the devices, try them all and then let us all know your experience of each. But for most of us it’d be buying just one device. Wellness practitioners may purchase more than one device, often different from each other so that they could accomplish different tasks at the same time.
Also don’t forget the second hand markets, ebay, craigslist, etc. You might be able to find a relatively new device for as little as half price of the new device.
Remember that if you are buying SCENAR for your personal use — you could share a single device between several friends or families and thus save more.
I’d also recommend to check the prices with vendors in Russia — during my research I found some SCENAR devices sold in Canada are 3 times more expensive than their price in Russia. Except it’s more complicated to buy directly from Russia, as they won’t accept your credit card and if things go wrong who knows what will happen to your hard earned money.
Some of the products can be reimbursed by your insurance company as they are prescription devices and approved by FDA and other regulatory bodies around the world for pain relief and pain management.
If you’re trying to choose between a professional model versus personal (or semi-professional) model you need to know that while the SCENAR signal is usually the same – professional models typically come with assessment/diagnostics features, and could be significantly faster at their tasks. The professional models often have a lot more settings and options. This may or may not mean that the learning curve might be significantly higher and may require a dedicated onsite training. Some professional models can be successfully deployed with little training. Personal (home) models are typically designed for simplicity and require little learning — you should still be able to accomplish very good results with basic models. Sometimes less is more.
Ultimately what makes the real difference is not the device you buy, but knowing how to use it properly. Therefore make sure that when you get the device you get access to an indepth training. Sometimes a pre-recorded group training on video does the trick, but ideally you will want to participate in such a training in person. Good manuals are important, but can’t substitute for a first hand experience of learning from an expert. Being able to ask questions and to receive insightful answers can be of a paramount importance.
If you are a practitioner you may want to consider buying the latest revision of the device — I read reports where the healing process was almost twice as fast by just getting a newer version of the same SCENAR model — i.e. you could treat more customers during the same period of time so you’d recoup your investment faster.
One more thing to consider if you’re a SCENAR practitioner is to make sure that the device you’re about to buy is certified for use in your country and if you have an indemnity insurance make sure it’ll cover the usage of that particular model of the device. (e.g. if you practice in Europe the device needs to have a CE-certification).
If you have a choice of materials the electrodes are made of– it’s the best to go for pure silver electrodes since they provide additional healing effects since silver is known for its bactericidal, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and styptic effects. If you’re buying a device for cosmetic purposes and can afford it then gold electrodes would be of the best choice. Of course the price of either pure silver or gold electrodes would make the total purchase much more expensive.
If you find it very difficult to make your own choice I’d recommend to find a SCENAR practitioner in your area, go for a session, see how it feels and talk to the practitioner and ask for their recommendations.
In this synthesis I gave you the map of the SCENAR kingdom, revealing to you what’s available on the menu, who are the experts, what are the price ranges. Now all is remaining is for you to look at the respective sites, make your choice, purchase the device, get well and help those around you to get well as well.
In a private correspondence (from mar 2017) Alexander Karasev said:
All the LET Medical devices listed in this article without exception came from my first mass produced device SCENAR-035. Most of them have a relatively similar effectivity. I like all of them as they support my idea of healing the world.
I recommend to all PS705Ag. It’s a reliable and sufficiently effective device. The price of $700 is low, considering it has silver electrodes. Its function is sufficient for any common illnesses. Higher investments into this technology should be done with caution. Powerful devices are needed only infrequently. Raising the effectivity by 10%, the price goes up 300%.
We have many refurbished devices of older models and we can help those who are on a low budget and have an urgent need to heal. Prices for those are 50%-off.
Note: Please do not contact me asking which device for you to buy. I haven’t tried all the devices, so unfortunately I can’t give you even my subjective opinion. All I know is already laid out in this article and I will keep updating it as I learn new things about various devices.
Attachments for SCENAR Devices
Most SCENAR devices support various attachments, that usually include hair combs, pointy pens, rectal and vaginal probes, shoes, socks, gloves, etc.
Small area electrode
Small Y-shape electrode for facial treatments
Large Y-shape electrode – for spinal column & larger muscles
There are many more attachments available — these are just a few examples.
Some of these attachments can be used with most SCENAR devices, others work only with the device they were designed for.
Professional SCENAR Associations
If you’re lucky and the practitioner you plan to visit has one of the very advanced SCENAR devices with “auto-pilot” it probably matters less who the practitioner is. And besides there are many excellent practitioners out there who are mavericks and don’t want to belong to any organizations. If it makes it for a better experience for you to work with someone belonging to a professional association, here is the list of professional SCENAR Associations:
- SCENAR Therapist Association Australasia Inc. — Australia and New Zealand
- SCENAR Practitioners Society of Ireland
- SCENAR Association of Bulgaria
- SCENAR Professional Association of North America (broken site as of this writing: http://scenarprofessionalassociation.org/)
- International SCENAR Technology Association (defunct)
- SCENAR Therapists Association for North America and Europe (defunct)
Several associations disappeared circa 2010 with the economy downturn.

Discussion Forums on SCENAR Technology
I couldn’t find any active public forums dedicated specifically to SCENAR technology for English-speakers. There existed quite a few in the past but they all went quiet around 2009. There are still active Russian forums.
Here are some forums that can still be read:
There are also several private forums accessible only after one takes a SCENAR training with the provider of the forum.
Forums in Russian:
- http://www.scenar.com.ru/Club/index.php (OKB-RITM)
Free Self-Learning Resources
Similarly to the sad state of the discussion forums, there are very few online resources where you could learn about SCENAR and COSMODIC by yourself. Most sites are either practitioners or resellers with a good article posted here and there, but not much to really list here.
One site stands apart and this is Dr. Irina Kossovskaia’s http://healthboss.org/ where you can find many free articles and audio/video recordings of various teleseminars and workshops. While you can buy full recordings of various trainings on that site, there are many very useful free resources as well. This is actually very rare that someone would put out so much free information out there in a very accessible way. I was very surprised to have discovered her site. This site links to a few other sites created by Dr. Irina Kossovskaia where you can find even more information on SCENAR and related technologies Dr. Irina recommends. Dr. Irina was the one who introduced the technology of SCENAR in North America and has been constantly refining the perfect combination of technology and wisdom to help lay persons be in charge of their health. I wish other trainers were as generous in sharing their knowledge as Dr. Irina is. Thank you, Dr. Irina!
Other than the available books on SCENAR which you can find at the end of this article, several companies and individuals provide training in SCENAR and COSMODIC technology. Some provide pre-recorded trainings that you can purchase as DVDs or watch online. Others do only live group training in person or as a webinar. For the latter you need to travel to where the training happens and spend extra $$ on travel and lodging, but nothing beats having an expert work with you hands on in person.
Here are a few suggestions to start from:
- Dr. Irina Kossovskaia @ http://healthboss.org (recorded and live) [scenar+cosmodic]
- Vivienne Constad @ http://www.scenar-cosmodic.co.uk (live only) [scenar+cosmodic]
- Alexander Revenko @ http://www.scenar-revenko.ru (live) [ritm scenar]
- Benedick Howard @ http://www.ebodyfusion.com (online only) [all scenars]

The following major technological milestones were reaching in the last 40 years in Russia. All three use electric current to provide medication-free treatments:
- 1973: TENS: provide short term pain relief.
- 1976: SCENAR: restore body to its normal function
- 1998: COSMODIC: restore body at the cellular level
Here is an attempt to make a chronological timeline of various events in the history of the SCENAR industry based on the data on various SCENAR-dedicated websites:
So it all started in 1973 when Dr. Karasev invented a TENS machine, which stands for “Transcutaneous Electro-Neuro-Stimulation”. Such machine generates an electric current to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. TENS helps to manage the pain, both acute and chronic, but provides only a short-term relief. You can buy a basic model today for as little as $20.
The next development was to discover a way to communicate with the brain and adapt the electric current based on the response of the body to the initially applied current, using the biofeedback principle. This development gave birth to the first SCENAR device: ENS-01.
RITM OKB ZAO registered the first patent of the SCENAR®.
Alexander Karasev continues to improve his technology and the first device that was introduced to the Russian population when the technology was declassified was SCENAR-035, which he described as:
“The SCENAR works by making the body’s own immune system operate more efficiently. Technically it is a very complicated 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 just hold it over the affected area or organ and it sends an amplified signal to the brain. This causes the brain to trigger the body’s immune system, and, hey presto, after only a few minutes of treatment, the patient starts feeling much better.”
According to Alexander Karasev, all the current devices released by LET Medical are derivatives of SCENAR-035.
Sergey Solomko founds INVET, which created SCENAR devices ENART 800- and 900-series. ENART stands for Energo-Neuro-Adaptive Receptor Therapy.
A. Gurov creates a Belorussian company REMA which patents Prologue-02 based on ENS-03. The latest revisions were done in 2009.
RTS ART is set up and now trades as Denas MS producing the Denas (based on SCENAR-032 PROTON) and DiaDens. DENAS stands for a Dual-Range Electric Neuro-Adaptive Stimulator. DiaDENS (Diagnostic Dynamic Electro Neuro Stimulation) is the latest line of products. There was also ZooDENS for animals, but it is now discontinued.
Unlike all other SCENAR manufacturers who sell their products through distributors, DENAS MS created a huge marketing machine by using the Multi-Level Marketing scheme (MLM) and combined with cheaper prices and constant discounted “sales” it appears that they sell a lot more SCENAR devices than any other SCENAR manufacturer. It’s hard of course to make an objective comparison of quantities sold. The company is not shy competing with its MLM distributors and sells their products from their website directly to consumer. Their website suggests that their devices are significantly cheaper than their competitors’ due to the mass production capacity, which the latter don’t possess.
Dr. Revenko spins off his own company which he calls OKB-RITM and releases SCENAR 90.0 followed by the 97.4 and 97.5 with computer interface.
Dr. Karasev invents the COSMODIC technology. Releases the first COSMODIC device 705 in 2002.
Jan De Jong establishes RITMEDIC (original name: Intermediate Services) in Holland. In 2004 the company releases Personal RitmScenar and Professional RitmScenar devices using OKB-RITM ZAO License with modifications to hardware settings and interface for the Western markets.
Dr. Colthurst (UK) creates a digital version of SCENAR technology and called it Fenzian Treatment System. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2012.
RITM OKB ZAO signs a license agreement with a Chinese company PERVADE WAVE CO Ltd to manufacture CHANS-01-SCENAR, which was re-branded as ENAR. The license was revoked in 2002, as the license fees were paid but PERVADE WAVE CO Ltd continued manufacturing and selling ENAR in Australia via Enlightened Therapies Pty Ltd. No legal action was taken by RITM.
Dr. Avagyan makes his own technology branch and develops a device called AcuScen. Dr. Teppone participated in the creation of this device. Latest products include Acuscen Pro+, Acuscen Premium and Acuscen Auto. Dr. Avagyan passed on in 2011 and his company doesn’t exist anymore.
Tim Smith founds Avazzia, which started manufacturing BEST (Biofeedback Electro-Stimulation Technology) devices.
Zulia Frost founds Neuro Resource Group which created the InterX line of SCENAR products.
Dr. Tennant introduces the Tennant Biomodulator. In his book called Healing is Voltage Dr. Tennant explains his theory about why our bodies get disease and what to do about it. Jerry Tennat suggests that the SCENAR technology gets energy to the cells, using the acupuncture meridians, at a frequency that they can receive, and in the process changes the pH of the cells. With adequate energy, the body is able to make new cells that are healthier, and to overcome a healing crisis. He was first using the existing SCENAR devices in his practice but recently he created a line of SCENAR products of his own that he called BioModulator (Plus and Pro), with various additions to the underlying SCENAR technology. The unique proposition of his technology is that it can measure and increase the electric voltage and the pH value of the cells.
Dr. Tennant’s BioModulator is manufactured by Avazzia, which also sells SCENAR devices, which at least on the outside look identical to Tennant’s BioModulator.
Company MyoScen in Voronezh creates a new device called SCENAR 035M (aka The DOVE = Device Organizing Vital Energy). It was designed by Dr. Karasev, but is not being manufactured by LET Medical. It is not a successor of any previous device. DOVE got updated in 2012.
Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation restores the trademark “SCENAR” to RITM OKB ZAO.

It is very discouraging to see that there are no active forums about SCENAR technologies, as it’s a clear indication that there aren’t many SCENAR owners out there, yet as one of the distributors explained to me that it’s the bad economy’s fault which hit this industry very hard as most of its high level devices are quite expensive.
So the technology is fantastic but the top quality ones are not very affordable at the moment. However there are several devices in the $300-500 range, and if you buy second hand, it’s even cheaper.
Of course this could be a misleading conclusion since in a long term if a large upfront investment rids one of the many ailments at no extra cost, this could mean not only mental and emotional “savings”, but a real monetary savings if one were to sum up how much money one spends on doctors, medicine, missed opportunities, etc.
I’m in the process of acquiring my first SCENAR device and I will update this write up once I gain a first hand experience with it at my own healing.
