Mona Vale Chiropractic Centre – A short history

Mona Vale Chiropractic Centre was founded in 1974 by Martin and Christine Gregory (Neil’s parents). It is now the longest running family operated Chiropractic Clinic in the Northern Beaches.

The clinic has been at it’s current location of 1801 Pittwater Road since 1986. Neil and his wife Lynette originally lived at the back of the Chiropractic clinic. As their family grew with three active sons it was time to expand the clinic and move the family.

The building was changed to Professional Suites in 1995 when extra treatment rooms were added. The clinic began providing massage therapy services and other Chiropractors joined Neil in the busy practice.

Clinical Psychologist Gunter Swoboda and Speech Pathologist Lauren Reid have been running their health-care businesses from 1801 Pittwater Road for many years.

How does SCENAR work?

Scenar device

SCENAR is a non-invasive regulation of body functions used by medical professionals world-side.  It uses a small computer device to stimulate the body’s in-build self-recovery system.

Under normal circumstances the body has the ability to heal itself. For example, if you cut your finger it gets better. With chronic problems, the body repeatedly tries to fix the problem in order to achieve a point of balance. When balance can’t be restored because of low energy it ignores the dysfunction and cuts off the lines of healing communication.

SCENAR stimulates the nervous system to re-open the lines of communication, prompting a reboot of the healing process. SCENAR releases neuropeptides that regulate life processes on a cellular level. Patients often report dramatic pain-relief because these neuropeptides act as natural pain relievers.

The SCENAR device transmits a signal through the skin and reads the response – listening to the body. The device then adjusts its own signal using a unique process of active reflex bio-feedback. When the device is brushed over the skin it will drag over problem areas and slide easily over areas not affected

With acute injuries, SCENAR speeds up healing by triggering the release of neuropeptides (some of which are profoundly involved in inflammation), as it assists the body to direct its focus on healing the injury.
