Advanced SCENAR techniques for acute and chronic pain SCENAR is the only refl ex biofeedback device that has been studied, proven to be effective and FDA registered. It is effective in resolving and permanently treating pain syndromes and injuries in one, two or three sessions, where other treatments require several sessions and may not reverse the pathology. Dr. Bark is the only doctor with advanced training and experience with the technology in the Chicago area, Illinois or Wisconsin. She recently returned from Haiti where she introduced the technology to be used in disaster medicine and urgent care for many types of injuries and pain syndromes. Originally developed for the Russian space program, SCENAR is a world fi rst in electrotherapeutic real time bio feedback. Reading the change in skin impedance, SCENAR constantly modulates the form of its impulse. Each impulse is different from the last one, so the body does not adapt to the action, thus allowing neuro-peptides to act to restore the body to homeostasis. Make your appointment with Dr Bark and get out of pain now! A little about Dr. Bark’s background: After residency, while directing an ER, Dr. Bark began her studies and supervision in classical homeopathy. She has graced the “Top Doctors” list for Chicago. Dr. Bark is the medical consultant for Similasan USA, and is an avid educator for institutions, including homeopathic medicine and environmental health for the University of Chicago and the Mayo clinics conference on Complimentary Care.
