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.

“I woke one morning to find that I couldn't open my mouth. X-rays showed nothing, so Dr. YY suggested laser treatments. She convinced me after talking about a patient who had recovered 80% of her mandible (lower jaw) mobility after laser treatments. Ten treatments later, I am functioning normally again.I am able to eat a sandwich or enjoy a hamburger without pain.Laser was, without a doubt, the best solution!
I went to LaserHealth® Solutions after approximately three months of physiotherapy for a left lateral epicondylitis. After reaching a plateau in my treatment without resolution of my symptoms, I was pleased to experience a marked improvement after only 1 Laser Therapy treatments. I first noticed improvements after four treatments.
I initially came in unable to lift a coffee cup along with other daily tasks. That has changed, now I am able to function normally.
“I am a very active woman who never likes to sit down.Recently I went cross-country skiing and wore boots that were a little to big for me and after 15 kilometers I ended up with a bit of Achilles Tendonitis in my right ankle.
I've done seven treatments to date and have noticed that it only hurts to touch it but I am back to my active self playing sports and going snowboarding.In fact I have since played shinny for an hour and had no pain afterwards.Thank you LaserHealth® Solutions.”
“A few years ago I started having a bit of pain in my hip.Eventually I had a hip replaced, which helped with the pain.Recently in the last two years, my knees have started to become aggravated when I walk for any long distance or climb stairs.
A friend of mine in the Canadian Legion referred me to LaserHealth® Solutions.I have since had 6 treatments and I can already feel the difference.I can walk for more than an hour and stairs are easier to climb.I would say that it is better by about 40 percent.I still have more treatments to do.”
I had 1 laser treatments on the navicular joint in my foot. My last treatment was Thursday December 15, 25.
I have advanced arthritis in my foot and the only advice given me by my doctor was to take glucosamine. Surgery is not successful with this condition.
I am a skeptic of alternative medicine, but after seeing LaserHealth® Solution's ad in the newspaper, I decided to give it a try. I emailed the office and was given a prompt reply to my questions. I found the people I came in contact with to be informed and professional. They also sent for my x-rays and I was finally able to see the problem on the computer screen with my own eyes… View the whole post
I have been suffering with neck pain and head aches off and on for over 12 years. One day while working under the dash of a client's car I twisted my neck and immediately felt a muscle cramp and a dull ache. The next morning I woke up with severe right sided neck pain, a head ache and pain into my left shoulder.
Four days later I started laser treatments and after about the third treatment, I noticed some improvement. I had 15 treatments in total and my neck is more mobile, and the pain has improved 70% and the chronic left shoulder tendonitis that I had for 3 years has improved by over 80%.
The pain in the bottom of my foot/heel area would re-occur every 3-4 months. This pain would last for 3-4 weeks at a time. This made walking and regular activities very painful as could not roll my foot from the heel to the ball of my foot. Hobbies and sports activities (golf, jogging) were next to impossible.
After about 4 or 5 treatments at LaserHealth® Solutions, I noticed the pain starting to subside. By the 9th and 1th treatment I was relatively pain-free and could resume my regular activities.
I would recommend LaserHealth® Solutions for treatments of similar pain conditions.
“As a running back in football I went through many years of pain in my knees.The right knee was the worst after tearing the tendons in the back during my last season.I toughed it out for a year but after falling 10ft off a scaffold at work it was too much.My MRI was full of little problems but nothing that surgery could fix.Then my Dad heard about LaserHealth® Solutions on the radio and thought this was an idea for me.After the first three treatments I could already feel improvement and got back to work.Still in pain however I noticed the biggest improvement when I had a few weeks off of work and got… View the whole post
“Within an hour of burning my stomach on a roasting pan in my kitchen, I had Laser Therapy. To my surprise there was no throbbing, stinging or burning pain after my first treatment. I received nine treatments in total and now the scar is barely visible. I truly believe that without the laser the scar would have been more noticeable.
Thanks to all the doctors and staff at LaserHealth® Solutions!”
As a stylist that owns a hair salon, I work long hours. Last year I was having problems standing, walking any distance. I developed bumps on my heels and my legs were tightened up all the time. Even getting up from bed in the mornings, my feet hurt. One of my clients works at LaserHealth® Solutions and recommended me to come here. I started in May. I have had great results in my heels. I stand better, my heel bumps have come down at least 85%, my walking ability is better.
Thanks for helping my daily walking and standing problems.
