The Calgary clinic opened in 2004 and has successfully treated thousands of people for conditions such as tendonitis, sciatica, cervical and shoulder injuries, tennis elbow, low back pain, TMJ syndrome, plantar fasciitis, sports injuries and arthritis. Treatments are a combination of laser therapy and manual therapy.
Laser therapy is proven to help reduce or eliminate inflammation. Light photons are deeply absorbed by soft tissue, stimulating physiological effects necessary to healing. It is a painless, noninvasive therapy which can help restore normal cell function and enhance the body’s healing processes.
The manual work provided by the therapists includes Manual Osteopathic Therapy, Somatics, Onsen® Therapy and Massage Therapy Techniques. These are used to assess and correct structural and functional imbalances. Improved musculoskeletal balance means the reduction or elimination of pain, an increased range of motion and the release of entrapped nerves or trigger points.
The cost is $125+GST per visit. An assessment is included in the first visit at no extra charge and each visit takes just under an hour. You are one-on-one with the therapist the whole time. You won't just be receiving laser therapy. Laser therapy is an important part of the treatment because of its ability to reduce or eliminate inflammation and speed up the healing process. The manual therapy is just as important because these techniques deal with the structural and muscular reasons why the pain and inflammation started. Laser Health Solutions has developed a unique therapy program using Osteopathic techniques, Laser Therapy, Somatics, and Massage Therapy that you won't find anywhere else. On average, only ten treatments are needed.
If you have insurance benefits which allow you to see a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), you can claim reimbursement for Laser Health Solutions treatments when you see one of our RMTs. If you have any of the following insurance and are able to see a Manual Osteopathic Therapist (DMO), you are able to claim reimbursement when treated by one of our osteopaths: Blue Cross, Desjardins, Empire Life, Equitable Life, Great West Life, Canada Life, Greenshield, Manulife or Sunlife.

"I came into LaserHealth® Solutions two weeks after being in a motor vehicular accident in late 2010 where I was rear ended, twisting me in my seat. I was having back and neck pain which caused my legs to go numb. I could not sit for 10 minutes without being in major pain and could not walk long distances. My doctor prescribed muscle relaxants and I attended physiotherapy/massage as often as three times a week. I would end up leaving the physiotherapy appointments in more pain then when I entered and I was seeing little to no improvement.
My shoulders have been bad for 15 years. Then 2 months ago, I fell down the stairs and wrenched my right shoulder really bad; to the point that I was in a sling. Because I was here (LaserHealth® Solutions) before, I knew that this would be the best option. I came down for 7 treatments but even after the 1st visit, I noticed 20% improvement. There was accelerated improvement everyday after that. I am swimming too to help build my muscle tone. Now I have 100% recovery and my shoulder is better than it has been in the last 1 years!
Hello Blaine, I just wanted to let you know that I was able to complete the New York Marathon on November 7, 21. My foot really held up and really didn't cause me any issue. Thanks again for allowing me to run pain free. I will have no problems with recommending LaserHealth® to any of my network.

“I began to experience a pain in my right shoulder after completing the Sun Run in the month of May.The pain was so severe that I could barely put a sweater on without wincing with pain.I began to have tightness around my neck area and shoulder.I couldn't sleep on my right side and I could not exercise and lift weights as I once used to.I decided to have massage therapy and after 4 sessions my therapist said the tightness was far too deep to get into and suggested I see my doctor for x-rays.The doctor was quick to prescribe anti-inflammatory medication and suggested I see a sport therapist.I refused the… View the whole post
“Hi Everyone, I wanted to touch base and let you know that my back is doing well. Amazing that it survived a 4450 km drive from Craven, SK to Whitehorse, YT! Also, I have started running and a Kung Fu class ~ FANTASTIC! Now I remember why I love Bruce Lee movies so much :) Thank you for fixing me.”
Hi Blaine, I was a patient back in December 29/Jan 21. I wanted to thank you for restoring my foot back to normal. I had a stress fracture and plantar fasciitis, was unable to run and walking was painful. Last week I was able to run a half-marathon race without any pain thanks to your treatments.
I have been taking Glucosomine/Chondrotin (9mg) since 199 for arthritis in my big toe. It is almost impossible for me to find a boot that I can wear and bare the pain. It was diagnosed in 28 that I have arthritis in my right thumb. To put any amount of stress on the thumb caused severe pain - so things like opening jars and lids or applying pressure to push in thumb tacks or pushing the throttle on my ATV became painful. Laser Therapy was suggested and recommended by Dr. YY for both my thumb and big toe. My family doctor in 199 had said nothing could be done for the toe. So I took Dr. YY's suggestion and started… View the whole post

“For about a year I had been experiencing pain in my right hip joint. Over time the pain spread down my leg gradually affecting my ability to walk upstairs or on an incline. I tried stretching, physio, acupuncture. Everything helped to a point, but nothing got rid of the pain. I am a long distance walker and was contemplating doing another full marathon but I knew I couldn't do the number of kilometers required to do the necessary training. In December 2009 I met a runner who suggested that I try Laser Therapy because she had heard of great successes. After completing the therapy I did a half marathon with no pain in… View the whole post
