Optimize Your Health with the Power of Light!
Photobiomodulation Light Therapy Heals at the Cellular Level
Photobiomodulation (PBM) is the application of light (Low Level Laser and/or LED & Near Infra-red) to the body.
When applied at specific power levels and time, the light penetrates into the mitochondria of your cells to help restore normal cell function wherever the beam is applied. With over 50 years of scientific study, PBM has been proven to reduce pain, repair tissue and improve function.
We use world leading Light Therapy Technology to:
- Boost Your Immune Function
- Enhance Physical and Cognitive Performance
- Heal Injuries & Chronic Conditions such as Muscle and Joint Pain, Sports Injuries, Arthritis, Migraines, Concussions, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Eczema, TMJ, Oral Mucositis and many more!
At Luminous, we use Lasers, LED and Near Infrared light at very low levels. Unlike lasers used in cosmetic skin resurfacing or for surgery in hospitals, PBM lights don’t get hot and will not harm you in any way.
Luminous is the only Light clinic in Vancouver with a full body LED Light Bed as well as THOR targeted hand-held Laser and LED light probes.
PBM is natural, painless, non-thermal, non-invasive, and Health Canada approved.
We have treated hundreds of people at our clinic for many different health conditions as well as for overall wellness, performance enhancement, and anti-aging.
We can help you get back to feeling your best faster and naturally with no drugs or side effects.
What Conditions Can We Treat?
Muscle & Joint Pain/Sports Injuries
Whether you’re suffering from chronic pain or have an acute injury, PBM reduces pain and speeds healing. Used by many athletes and pro sports teams, PBM can reduce healing time by 50%. Great for Arthritis, Tendonitis, Bursitis, Carpal Tunnel, TMJ, Fibromyalgia, and other painful conditions.
Concussions / Neurological Conditions
Inflammation and brain cell damage from injuries, strokes, concussions, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s can all be treated with PBM. The light reduces inflammation and promotes healing of damaged cells and tissue to improve cognitive & motor function.
Wounds / Post Surgery Healing
PBM is very effective at accelerating healing of wounds (lacerations, bruises, burns) and post-surgery healing. Many clients use our services after cosmetic surgery to speed healing and minimize scarring. PBM also heals skin conditions such as psoriasis, and eczema.
Whether you’re recovering from dental work or have other oral ailments such as TMJ/TMD or lesions, light therapy has been proven to heal, relieve pain and other symptoms. PBM is a very effective treatment for Oral Mucositis, a painful condition caused by chemotherapy treatments.

This relaxing, non-invasive treatment targets specific injury or symptom areas using LED/Near Infrared and Laser light probes. These probes emit warm light at specific frequencies & times. The light penetrates your skin 2-5 cm deep to reach damaged cells and repair tissue.
This specialized light relieves pain & inflammation, increases circulation and HEALS!
How Can Light Therapy (PBM) Successfully Treat So Many Different Conditions?
Photobiomodulation does one thing very well. It Heals at the CELLULAR LEVEL.
All of these conditions have one thing in common, oxidative stress. Oxidative stress (an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants) causes inflammation in your cells. Although inflammation is a natural response to injury, chronic inflammation can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, and cell and tissue damage and is at the root of most health conditions. Time Magazine calls Inflammation “The Silent Killer” after scientific medical studies linked chronic inflammation to many serious illnesses including Alzheimer’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease and more.
PBM is a very powerful way to eliminate oxidative stress from damaged cells to reduce inflammation,
increase circulation and accelerate the natural healing process.
What Our Customers are Saying About Our Service
From the moment I walked into the office, I felt a very calm and welcoming environment. The Luminous practitioner spent a lot of time with me reviewing my symptoms and getting to know me. I felt immediate relief from my back and shoulder pain after the first session and had no pain after my fourth session. Thank you Luminous!
