When something goes wrong in our bodies, when we get older, or injured, sick or stressed our mitochondria, the powerhouses of our cells, are flooded with excessive amounts of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a poisonous red-brown gas that shoves the oxygen out of our cells and stops the flow of energy. When our oxygen is displaced and our energy blocked, our cells get burned out by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress increases the production of free radicals. Free radicals cause inflammation, cell mutations and in worst-case scenarios – cell death. Photobiomodulation Light Therapy (PBMT) will help REMOVE Nitric Oxide from your cells and allow your cells to RETURN to a healthier state; allowing you to experience LESS pain, INCREASED mobility and BETTER health.Read More
Photobiomodulation Light Therapy (PBMT) applies infra-red light over injuries and is
scientificly proven to improve soft tissue healing, increase mobility, reduce
inflamation and reduce or eliminate both acute and chronic pain.
PBMT is different than light therapy - learn more
PBMT can help treat the following:
• Pain & inflammation
• Vehicle or workplace accidents
• Dry macular degeneration
• Depression & Seasonal Anxiety Disorders
• Sprains, strains and bruises

I feel Borealis Photobiomodulation Light Therapy is a gift and I feel so fortunate to have tried it.
Nationally Acclaimed Hair Stylist MS Thriver
If you’re in pain, you’ve got nothing to lose. The light therapy helped decrease the pain intensity. It’s better than taking drugs.
Owner of Glass North
A marginal improvement was all that I anticipated, but there was a significant improvement. My pain is manageable. I feel much better after a treatment."
The thing that is very noticeable is my inner plumbing. It has not been my friend for the last couple weeks. Today however, it is seriously making up for lost time, and I'm okay with that

Depending on the nature and difficulty of the condition being treated, light therapy sessions are typically 15 minutes to one hour long.
Your therapist will identify a therapy plan with you during your initial consultation.
It might resemble a sun tanning bed but the Borealis NovoThor Light Pod is one of the first devices of its kind (and presently there are only 32 in the world for public use) that delivers full-body photobiomodulation therapy in just 12-15 minutes. The NovoThor has been designed to supply optimal wavelengths, power densities and dosages based on the results of published clinical research.
Recommended as a non-medical intervention, NovoThor has been shown to be effective for sports injuries and athletic recovery, acute chronic musculoskeletal conditions like sciatica, tendinopathy, whiplash, arthritis and gout syndrome, as well conditions like alopecia, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia neuropathy, lymphedema and more.
Preconditioning with NovoThor has also been shown to improve muscle recovery and post surgical rehabilitation.
An 1-to-1 LX2 Treatment is a more focused healing protocol for pain and inflammation relief. In consideration of your comfort, you’ll be expected to wear your underwear under a Borealis robe to make the treatment areas on your body accessible for direct contact with the photobiomodulation device.
You’ll be asked to position yourself on one of 2 treatment surface areas by either leaning against a treatment chair or settling back on an adjustable, padded spa table.
In addition to following a specific PBMT protocol, you’ll participate in the progress of your therapy by pointing out any injured or painful areas in order for your therapist to treat the areas that need direct focus and immediate attention.
Parking is available to our clients in front of the mall at 754 Falconbridge Rd.
Please bring some comfortable indoor footwear like slip on shoes or a pair of slippers. Give your filled out intake form to the reception host. If you are scheduled solely for a 1-to-1 LX2 treatment ,wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to expose the area you are having treated. For example, wear a tank top if you are having a shoulder treated and shorts if you are having your leg treated. If you have any questions, please contact the center...
The NovoThor photobiomodulation pod must make direct contact with your skin so you will be required to lay in the bed without clothing. Our reception host will provide you with a robe and key then show you to the change room to undress in privacy.
NovoThor bed treatments are 12-15 minutes and LX2 treatments can range from thirty minutes to 1 hour in length.
Depending on the nature and chronicity of the condition, many clients chose to have a 15 minute session in the NovoThor bed followed by an individual LX2 treatment session with our photobiomodulation therapist.
Your therapist will discuss how long each treatment will take at your initial consultation.
Treatments typically take 30 minutes to one hour and should be applied two or three times a week. The number of treatments will depend on the persistence of the symptoms and the extent of the underlying problem. Based on the genetic makeup of the cells, an individual’s response to light therapy will vary to some degree.
