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 Osteopathic, Somatics, Onsen® and massage techniques. These techniques 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 $120 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 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, Greenshield, Manulife or Sunlife.

“I slipped in Sept. 2007 and twisted my knee. In November I went to see the Dr. as I had started curling and my knee was hurting. He did an x-ray and couldn't see anything. He sent me for an MRI which happened in April, 2008. It showed I had a tear in my ACL. I got to see a Specialist in November, 2008. He did not want to do surgery. So I persisted with the curling season wrapping my knee when I curled. When it really hurt was at night. In May I decided to try Laser Therapy. My brother-in-law in Regina had laser on his shoulder and he swore by it. So I didn't think it would hurt. When I met with Blaine he thought that I might need 20… View the whole post
I have had problems with the heels of my feet for many years due to planters fasciitis. Many of my vacations were a bust, because I couldn't keep up or walk very far without being in so much pain. I tried orthotics and that was only a short fix. In no time at all, I was in pain again and out $5..
I saw an ad in a paper for LaserHealth® Therapy and thought, what have I got to lose? I underwent the treatments, and I feel great, and I am able to walk properly. I didn't think I could wear flip flops or sandals again that didn't have a big foam cushion. (which I may add were not that attractive)
“Nearly 3 weeks ago I dislocated my shoulder playing hockey.I was told by the ER doctor to keep my arm in the sling for about 3 weeks and to not do any physical activity for at least 6 weeks.Already knowing about the success of Laser Therapy from a past injury I started with Dr. Rob right away.After 5 treatments over about a week and a half my arm was out of my sling and starting to regain mobility.With no pain, I plan to return to hockey after only missing 2 weeks.It WORKS!!!!Thanks Dr. Rob and everyone at LaserHealth® Solutions!”
I received treatment for Sciatica - very, very painful condition. After a series of laser treatments I am now back to normal. After having laid low', so to speak, for such a long time I am very happy with the results and the excellent kindness of the caregivers.
“I awoke Easter Sunday with unbearable pain running down my left arm, constant and in waves. On Monday I went into a medical walk in clinic as I couldn't wait to see my family doctor as the pain was so intense. I was given 2 painkillers and a recommendation to receive physiotherapy treatment. I went to physiotherapy 4 times but did not get much relief and I didn't want to be on pain killers because of the side effects. I remembered the ad in the local paper concerning laser treatment and I came to LaserHealth® Solutions. I really started to feel the effects of pain relief after 4-5 sessions. I remained on Turmeric… View the whole post
“I injured my right side of the lower back and pelvis from falling off a horse. I had acute pain on the lower back muscle and the buttock area and I could not walk with my back straight; sitting down and getting up from a chair was a big challenge and not to mention putting on my pants without sharp pain. I had very little flexibility since. The doctor from the emergence center told me that I had neither broken bone nor hair line fracture on my spine, and he prescribed me Advil and ice pack and send me home.
I appreciated Suzanne at LaserHealth® Solutions allowing me to see Blaine right away. I was told that my pelvic was… View the whole post
I was told about Laser Therapy from a friend who had had it done on her neck. I had been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot for about 5 or 6 years since I had been pregnant with my son. I saw Dr. Tova and he signed me up. I did about 12 or 13 sessions of Laser Therapy and finally after so many years I was pain free. After about a year and a half I got Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot so I did 15 sessions on that with the help of orthotics chich I had made through the office once again I was pain free! Dr. Rob and his team are an awesome group of people who really listen and try their absolute best to find a solution to your problem. Laser is easy to do and highly effective. Thanks everybody.
Hi Cheryl/Blaine/Janet: I want to relate to you the wonderful results that I have experienced as a result of undergoing your therapy.
I came to you with two very different problems: extensive soft tissue damage to my ankle as a result of a chipped bone in my foot and sciatica.
First the ankle. There was little pain while simply standing or walking, but I meditate for an hour a day and prefer to sit in full lotus for as much of that hour as possible. Before breaking my foot I could sit for 45 minutes or more. After breaking it I could not sit in lotus at all and by the time I came to your clinic I could sit only 5-1 seconds at a… View the whole post
After years of chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy appointments, and specialized exercise and stretching regimens, I had become reconciled to periods of relative pain free activity followed by some sort of innocent activity that would aggravate my whole condition: turning suddenly, bending over to tie my shoes, getting up from the couch, sleeping the wrong way'. This last time I felt a wrenching crunch that went down my right buttock and into my leg while lifting a box that couldn't have weighed more than 5 kilograms. I was hobbling around like a one legged pirate! It even hurt to sneeze or cough. I made my first… View the whole post
“8 months ago, pain began in my heel. I took a lot of medicine, I wear orthotics in my shoes but there was no change, the pain was getting worse. Then, 3 months ago, I came to Laser Therapy. Ten treatments later and I didn't feel much change, but after 10 more treatments my heel was much better. Now after 22 treatments my pain is gone, I'm so happy, I can walk again! Thank you very much Dr. Rob and staff for helping me. I can live again! It is a big gift for me for Easter.”
