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 $123+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.

Jose presented to our clinic suffering with plantar fasciitis for one year. He had eleven laser treatments and this is what he had to say...
When I first found out about Laser Therapy I was excited about the prospect that I could have the pain completely eliminated from my foot. After a short couple of months I can get back to my sports activities without worry. Your staff was great explaining the procedure and doing a good job overall.
I broke my ankle 8 years ago and even though I wore a cast for 12 weeks, it did not heal well. I also have osteoarthritis that the doctor said was affecting my ankle. It had arrived to a point when my limp was so bad and the pain so intense when I walked, that I was prepared to go to a surgeon to see what could be done. Then I heard about low intensity laser from a friend and skeptically decided to try it. It was a good choice. The first treatment showed improvement. Then it just got better and no longer needed treatments after just 8 sessions. I am very grateful!
“I have suffered from severe low back and hip pain, which has caused leg and foot pain, along with numbness and tingling for over 20 years. After seeing numerous Doctors, being subject to ongoing medical tests and procedures, I was eventually diagnosed with fibromyalgia and told nothing could be done to help me and I would have to learn how to manage my pain. Even though I did everything that was suggested, including narcotic drugs, exercise, weekly physiotherapy for the past 12 years, massage therapy, acupuncture, relaxation courses, mindfulness courses and 8 weeks at St. Paul's Hospital Pain Clinic, nothing helped alleviate my pain for… View the whole post
“I have always been a physically active person involved in sports such as gymnastics, track & field, and basketball.In my youth, and with the onset of age, took up yoga, aerobics and walking my dog.Yoga four times a week at lunch hour!Imagine my surprise when I woke one morning in August 2005, unable to move my arms without severe pain.I literally had to roll out of my bed as I could not put any pressure on my arms.I was wakened out of sleep by throbbing shoulder pain and freezing then hot sensations on my upper arm.I tried several months of massage and acupuncture, which gave me some relief,… View the whole post
“Several years ago I was diagnosed with having plantar fasciitis in my right foot. Limited my ability to walk and jog. After about five years it seemed to get worse.If I was on my feet for a long period of time during the day, if I sat down, once I got up I could barely walk.
My wife heard a recommendation by a doctor on the radio that this LaserHealth® might be a solution. So I got the information that I need and phoned up and talked with Dr. Rob. It seemed to me that it was the right thing to do and it wasn't putting me in to a position to do any invasive surgery or anything dramatic so I thought I… View the whole post
At the age of 48 and still very active in a number of sports, I have seen my share of injuries, bumps and bruises.
My latest injury, a strained rhomboid muscle was so painful that it was keeping me from normal work duties and even preventing me from sleeping.
After only a few visits to L.H.S. the pain subsided and I began to return to pain-free living and to playing hockey. L.I.L.T. (low intensity Laser Therapy) worked for me when pain killers and muscle relaxants did not.
I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone.
“My hand started bothering me one-and-a-half years ago.I took Celebrex, which took the pain away for most of the day but it kept coming back.I then switched to Lakota for joint and muscle pain.This also relieved the pain for a period of time each day but it still came back.I heard about LaserHealth® Solutions and decided to give this a try.I have had six treatments to my hand over three and a half weeks and the pain is all gone.My fingers are mobile once again and the pain hasn't come back.Thank you!”
I have been having a pain in my left shoulder for a couple of years. I heard of LaserHealth® Solutions on my car radio one day. I went in to see if they could help me. This was after I was told it would take me two years to get in to the sports clinic at the university.
I have completed 10 treatments at the clinic, may I say I am quite impressed. I was warmly welcomed with each treatment and I received immediate attention! The two therapists that helped me were very knowledgeable. I am curling now with no pain, and the exercises they gave me to do seem to have solved my problem. I have no reoccurring pain and I am satisfied that treatments have done a good job for me.
“Twenty five years ago I fell off a scaffold and shattered my ankle and damaged my hip. After surgery, 5 steel pins were put in my leg (ankle). Approximately 3 months ago the pain became worse and I was unable to stand or walk without excruciating pain. After 10 laser treatments the pain in my hip is 80% gone and after 2 laser treatments on my ankle I am pain free.
Many thanks to Dr. Rob of LaserHealth® Solutions!”
“The people out there (LaserHealth® Solutions - Surrey) were so nice and it was nothing short of a miracle.I thought I was going to have to have my neck fused but it is a lot better now. I wish there was some place out here in Winnipeg for me to go to.I think I‘ll tell the doctor here at the pain clinic about you because it was so great.”
