Scenar Pain Relief Massage
Scenar massage is an amazing combination of two therapies; classic massage and Scenar pain relief treatment. Classic or swedish massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.
Scenar therapy stimulates the body to use its own internal pharmacy to cure a state of ‘dis-ease’. When the Scenar passes over a ‘painful’ area it sends out a signal to the brain telling it that there is an imbalance, experienced as 'stickiness' on the skin.
Scenar technology was developed to "jump-start" the body’s own natural healing response, telling the brain that more of the bodies’ natural medicinal compounds are required to neutralise the pain and heal the injury. Instead of blocking or manipulating the body in a forceful, one-way process, Scenar's signals are being constantly modified by the body's responses. Coached to repair itself using its own resources, the body will generally choose to do so quickly and deeply.
By combining the manipulation of massage and the healing signals of the Scenar the client can experience amazing results. Initially you may feel a little 'zapped' as this is a powerful treatment, but later you will feel rejuvenated and refreshed and aches and pains dramatically reduced.
The Scenar massage is generally a service that will be recommended by our therapists after a conventional treatment and analysis of how you responded to that treatment. For injuries like muscle strains the scenar massage can be an excellent starting point. Our therapist will evaluate the best approach for you after consultation either on the phone when you enquire or at the time of your first visit.
What to Expect
Before treatment, your therapist will provide a full consultation, asking you various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure treatment is right for you. Most Scenar massage treatments take approximately an hour.
Treatments usually take place on a massage table or couch, though some may require you to sit in a chair. If the treatment involves the therapist directly massaging your skin, a nourishing oil or cream-based product will generally be used to provide a free-flowing massage, and towels carefully placed to ensure your modesty and keep you warm and comfortable throughout the treatment.
A pair of electrode patches are connected to the Scenar unit and one patch is attached to you and the other to the therapist. At this stage no signal is being passed because the signal loop is open so to speak.
Once the therapist applies the oil and then starts massaging the signal loop is complete and it can travel through the therapists hands as she massages your body. You will feel a pleasant light pins and needle type tingling and if this is too strong the strength of the signal can be reduced to suit your comfort.
Another method is for the therapist to wear electrode gloves that are connected to the Scenar and massage you without oil.
The two approaches are very different and the therapist will decide the best approach to make sure you receive the best possible treatment.
