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.

“In 2007 a friend of mine saw an article for LaserHealth® Solutions in the newspaper which caught her eye as it advertised help for people with plantar fasciitis. I was skeptical so I let her be the guinea pig and then being ever so skeptical waited a year and called to see if she was still pain free. Upon confirmation that she was I made my appointment with Blaine (for plantar fasciitis).
On the first visit I discussed my skepticism with Blaine but after 7 weeks I was pain free. Please note that I had put up with this pain for probably 4 years deciding there quite possibly was no cure!
I am a 76 year old female who has experienced various painful knee conditions since my late 3's. Upon consulting an orthopedic surgeon, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and severe tendinitis, which not only affected my knees but also my ankles, wrists and shoulders. At that time the doctor advised me to take cod liver oil pills which I have faithfully maintained. And in spite of trying numerous self help remedies, my knees continued to deteriorate.
In my early 5's my right knee became extremely painful and I began having cortisone injections. This treatment effectively relieved the pain, but only for a short period of… View the whole post
“I think I'm like most of us of a certain age, we want to be as active as possible, so when something goes a little sideways we want to get it fixed. My shoulder had been bugging me for a while but I was putting up with it, wincing every time I put on a jacket, feeling the pain every time I lifted something, putting up with the ache during every workout, but finally I just had enough, I had to get it fixed. I heard about LaserHealth® Solutions so I gave them a try. I was so impressed with their approach, the highly trained therapists there listened closely to my story, then they manipulated a… View the whole post
“I came to LaserHealth® Solutions last month and then received 10 laser treatments. The pain and mobility has greatly improved. I am recommending your services to my friends and family. The sciatica pain was debilitating and prevented me from working and walking. I am walking now and plan on returning to work in 2 weeks.”
“I had right shoulder pain; loss of movement; inability to lift; this problem was affecting my ability to work and also loss of sleep at night. After doctor visits and x-rays and finally an RMI; a diagnosis of tears in tendons and one muscle tear in right shoulder rotator cuff.
I was told at my age of 62 to expect rotator cuff damage; and to stop my working this way; and seek an easier retirement life.
Being self-employed for 32 years as a heavy duty mechanic this statement floored me; with a current strong customer base and a waiting work load; what can be done? I'm not ready to retire; looking hard for a solution while… View the whole post
I have been a patient of LaserHealth® Solutions since December 2012 with amazing results. I have suffered with lower back pain for years as has my sister. In November 2012, my sister heard of LaserHealth® Solutions on the radio and decided to contact them regarding her back problems that she had also suffered with for years. Both of us have tried different treatments which, at the beginning of the treatment regime seemed to work well but after a while these treatments became less and less effective. My sister and I have had entirely different physical activity levels throughout our lives. My sister was very active in sports… View the whole post
“In the month of February 2013 I had injured my knee dancing. At first we had thought it was just a sore muscle and that it would heal. After a few days of ice and medical creams nothing changed. We thought maybe LaserHealth® Solutions would help. I went for 6 treatments and after the first 2 treatments I was able to walk up the stairs without pain. After the 6th treatment I was back to my regular dancing, pain free. A big thanks to LaserHealth® Solutions.”
“Dr. Rob and staff, thanks for providing me with the LaserHealth@reg; treatment solutions. When I first came in to see you I was in major pain and couldn't move my leg or stay comfortable. After going through the six treatments I now have my life back. I'm able to start running and playing ball hockey again pain free. I would recommend this treatment to anyone!! Thanks.”
“Before I go for LaserHealth® Solution I got a lot of pain on my left wrist. It bothered me for my sleep sometimes and playing basketball and household chores. After my six meeting with the therapist I feel better and have changes to my left wrist, as well as my other pain on my other parts of my body. Now I'm feeling 90% recovered from my pain. Thank you very much for your help LaserHealth® Solutions.”
I was heading out to take my dog for a walk and didn't notice the ice on the steps. Well, if I didn't I slip andfall right on my derrière. I was hurt physically as was as my pride.
I saw Blaine about 3 years ago for almost the same kind of injury and got better. I kept thinking about going to see him…but then thought I just need time to heal and things will eventually get better. There was pain when I was walking as the pain was shooting down my right leg, I couldn't sit for long, couldn't stand either. Even driving my vehicle was painful as my right leg hurt to reach the gas pedal. It was either walking slowly or laying down.… View the whole post
