Yury Gorfinkel would be 54 today

Today, June 22, is Yury Gorfinkel's birthday. The new arrival was a man who eventually became one of the founders of a new medical branch - SCENAR therapy.
Having graduated from the Rostov State Medical Institute in 1984 Yury started his career as an emergency doctor. Searching for more efficient methods of emergency medical assistance he came across SCENAR device. He tried it out and immediately realized its significance for the modern medicine.
At first SCENAR was applied by placing the device within the area selected. Gorfinkel was the first who offered to move the device on the skin surface without pauses. This method revealed completely new reactions: "stickiness" of the electrode in particular areas, red and pale spots on the skin, changes in the sounding of the device during the operation. That is how the famous subjectively-dosed mode (SDM) appeared. Now it is widely used by both seasoned SCENAR therapists and novice users.
Yury Gorfinkel's life was not long but his contribution into the SCENAR therapy is invaluable. He will always be remembered and honored by hundreds of trainees and thousands of recovered patients.

Dear colleagues!

We receive from time to time the same question: "How to make a high frequency with SCENAR?". There is a fairly simple formula to calculate the equivalent frequency at Int > 1.

Feq = 1 000 000/(2*E+20*Gap)

Please note that the equivalent frequency does not depend on Intensity at all. But if Int = 1 extra (high) frequency is not available, while increasing Int from 2 to 8, it appears, and its share is growing. Extra (high) frequency does not depend on the basic frequency (F) too. But the basic frequency limits the maximum Intensity and, accordingly, the maximum attainable proportion of Extra (high) frequency. If you want to have 528 Hz, you can get this equivalent frequency at different combinations of Energy and Gap. For example, if Gap = 80 you have to set the Energy = 147. (The equivalent frequency is increased when the energy is decreased). If you want to have 528 Hz when the power is 250, set the Gap = 70. I place an Excel file here, in which is a formula and some examples for different combinations of Energy and Gap. Please note that the equivalent frequency does not depend on Intensity at all. But if Int = 1 extra (high) frequency is not available, while increasing Int from 2 to 8, it appears, and its share is growing. Extra (high) frequency does not depend on the basic frequency (F) too. But the basic frequency limits the maximum Intensity and, accordingly, the maximum attainable proportion of Extra (high) frequency.

SCENAR: The history of development

Dear colleagues,
We present to you Jacob Grinberg's report in Vienna conference 'SCENAR: The history of development'.

The report concerns important aspects of SCENAR and similar devices' authorship in Russia and around the world. Many widespread myths about 'authors' of newest devices are presented; the true state of affairs is described.
The report shows one of the authentic documents dated by USSR, which testifies who, when and where designed SCENAR devices for the first time.

CE is the only sign in the EU which confirms the compliance of a product with the European safety standards (for the person, property and environment). Products without the CE sign are restricted for sale on the EU market territory.

SCENAR enters Russian Football Premier League

Two football clubs of Russian Premier League have started to officially use SCENAR while training their team members. "Rostov" Football Club management has purchased SCENAR-D equipped with external electrodes. Medical Service of "Locomotive" Football Club now has SCENAR SuperPro, SCENAR-1-NT, external skin universal electrodes and adhesive electrodes at their service. Also, railway men have purchased a healing blanket "Nega", known to enhance SCENAR treatment efficiency.
Was used for the first time in the end of century for "Uralmash-M" five-a-side team. At first, the footballers were skeptical to SCENAR. The situation was changed by a team member who was so hurt that he was carried away from the pitch. The team doctor diagnosed him with an ankle-guard hurt and recommended a week of beg rest. But after only three days of SCENAR therapy the sportsman started to train again.
Soon another team member tore his hamstring muscle bundle. The injury got intensive treatment hourly. Five days later the team member started to train by an individual program. He was allowed to resume his group training three days later.
The attitudes to SCENAR-therapy changed radically. Now team members themselves came to SCENAR therapists for treatment. SCENAR therapy has been equally effectively used with "Uralmash" women's basketball team.

It has been 17 years since Yuri Gorfinkel left us

His relatives and friends remember him as unique and handsome, solemn and wistful man. "He always was a child at heart"

He passed away as a young man at the age of 37. He cured hundreds of people, and hundreds of followers still carry on his work. His charisma, love of live and talent not only impressed people but also encouraged them, and, for some, meant a real change.

SCENAR-therapist Irina Ershova recalls: "When I first saw Gorfinkel, he certainly made a powerful impression on me as both a remarkable tutor and a skilled practitioner. Then I became highly interested in his work. I saw great opportunities in a single device that unites both diagnostics and medical treatment. It provided doctors with an opportunity to look at pathologies and patients' problems from a whole new perspective. It inspired me immensely".

Yuri Gorfinkel started his professional career as an emergency doctor immediately after graduating from Rostov State Medical Institute in 1984. He saw a SCENAR-apparatus prototype in 1986 for the first time and became a strong supporter of its use in medical practice. Since 1988 he was a SCENAR therapist and in 1994 he grounded his famous SCENAR therapy study.

Yurij Gorfinkel said about his brainchild: "My attitude to SCENAR was a first-sight love, which became even stronger year by year. It is interesting that SCENAR itself gets accustomed to a person who is holding it. It is a very "person-oriented" device". He was one of the initiators of SCENAR therapy and pioneer of the apparatus emergency using. Before Yuri Gorfinkel there was one way of using electrodes in physiotherapy which seemed everlasting: the electrode is always stable and works in a user-determined part of the body only. To move electrode along body was possible only by rearranging. That was the way of using SCENAR. Gorfinkel was the first to suggest the idea to move the electrode along the problem part. The result was stunning: the electrode stuck, treatment turned skin pale or red because of handling, the sound of electrode disappeared or swelled, skin sensibility changed as far as the electrode moved. Thus the asymmetric areas were discovered, and it was the beginning of exposure rate, which was named subjectively-measured, but now is more often called Gorfinkelev's method. He was also the initiator of SCENAR-vaccination and other ideas.

Perhaps, time is a great healer. We may console ourselves but we shall never forget.

Congratulations to our partner SCENAR Center - Bulgaria on its 15th anniversary.

The decision to establish this company was a result of a surge in interest to SCENAR therapy abroad at the turn of XXth and XXIth centuries.
Eventually, our Bulgarian partners have become first people who successfully facilitated SCENAR philosophy movement outside our country.

Today SCENAR center - Bulgaria Ltd. is a prosperous company engaged in SCENAR distribution and conducting SCENAR therapy training courses.
Later, upon an initiative of the company's management team two more organizations were established: Bulgarian SCENAR community and SCENAR association Bulgaria.
In a couple of days The national research and practical conference on SCENAR therapy will be held in Starogorski-Bani. The Conference drew a vivid interest of the Bulgarians and stands to win. This is yet more evidence of our Bulgarian partners' fruitful activity.
