Portable Light Therapy

Easy, convenient technology to use wherever you are.

Scientifically proven to enhance cognitive ability and increase cerebral blood flow.



What is “Photobiomodulation”?

Photobiomodulation (PBM) previously referred to as Low Level Laser Therapy, is the use of red and near-infrared light on injuries or lesions to enhance the speed, quality and strength of healing, decrease inflammation, and alleviate both acute and chronic pain. It is also used to resolve inflammation and provide pain relief.

The impacts of PBM are photochemical, similar to photosynthesis in plants. When using the appropriate intensity and treatment duration, red and near-infrared light diminishes oxidative stress and boosts ATP production. This enhances cell metabolism and mitigates inflammation.

What is Portable Brain PBM?

These portable devices are designed to focus the same photobiomodulation therapy on the most receptive areas on your head and in your nasal cavity to enhance brain function by improving:

  • Blood flow
  • Metabolism
  • Cell creation
  • Overall brain protection

Leading to a healthier and more functional life!  They allow treatment at home, at the office or wherever you are!  The device fits comfortably over your head and/or gently clips onto your nose, depending on which model you choose. This allows for a mobile, hands free treatment!


Who is using this technology?

Anyone can use this technology to heal or enhance their brain function, but it is often used by patients with diseased and/or damaged tissues. This could be damage caused by diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s or from physical damage such as a motor vehicle accident or sport concussion. This technology has also been successful in treating patients suffering from PTSD and depression.


Who is giving Low Intensity Light Therapy (ie. Laser) treatments in this area?

Abbi May has been treating LAKESIDE HEALTH patients with therapeutic laser since 2019. She is a trained Laser Therapy Technician with a a degree in Physiotherapy from Queen’s University. She comes to the field of photo-therapy with a strong background in anatomy and clinical assessment skills. Book a laser appointment with Abbi using our larger laser equipment HERE.


What do the Portable Brain PBM devices cost?

Your initial investment for a portable unit ranges from $500 to $3400, depending on the model and current exchange rates.  After your initial cost is paid, treating yourself does not cost a thing!


Has this technology been studied?

There are many published studies on this technology for different conditions.  Positive results have been seen in research on Alzheimer’s, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson’s, Autism, PTSD and Long-Covid.
