Oda Ohana Chiropractic and Therapeutic Massage not only offers spinal adjustments and massages — you can experience their modern approach to weight loss through laser treatment programs. “At our office, we focus on a whole-body approach to wellness. Patients often do not realize that part of their back pain, nerve pain, fatigue and discomfort start with their weight,” says Dr. Paris Oda.

Here’s how it works: Light energy supercharges the body’s natural metabolism to burn fat rapidly. It also increases collagen production to create tighter skin and fade stretch marks. The results include weight loss, body slimming, cellulite removal, up to one to two inches of fat loss right after treatment and body contouring.

Treatment programs and pricing will vary depending on your specific needs and goals, which will be determined during your first consultation, which is priced for a limited time at $37 until July 12. “During this consultation, we will be able to explain, in detail, specifics on how the laser works and what to expect. We can reserve a spot for a close friend or family to get a same offer with you on that day,” says Dr. Paris.

Many people have difficulty of truly starting a weight loss program because they do not see a change or attain their goals. According to Dr. Paris, this machine can be the catalyst to change by starting the person on improving their life by losing their first 10 to 20 pounds. Dr. Paris says, “When a person sees marked improvement, they have the desire to continue to eat better, then they can start to exercise more and feel better about themselves which is the true driving factor behind a better life. Why not use modern medicine which has now made it easier to help you get back on the right track for your goals?”

In addition to the weight loss program, Dr. Paris works with his brother Dr. Aaries to provide adjustments that help your spine function at its best. Chiropractic care realigns the spine, which can improve blood pressure, organ function, mental clarity and energy levels. “The idea is, if your spine is working properly, your entire body will as well,” says Dr. Paris.

Dr. Paris and his brother have been in the field of chiropractic care for a combined total of 19 years. They have Doctorate of Chiropractic degrees from the Palmer College of Chiropractic, located in San Jose, California, and both are board certified. As chiropractors, they believe a natural, holistic approach will provide patients with better, faster and long-lasting results. At their practice, the two brothers and their staff also offer therapeutic massage services, including shiatsu, lomi lomi and more, are also available. They also treat auto accidents and work comp injuries.

“Often times, our patients are being prescribed traditional medicines that only treat their symptoms, such as fatigue, migraines or back pain. We believe that chiropractic care targets the actual problem, which is almost always spine misalignment,” says Dr. Paris.

For aches and pains, Oda Ohana also offers a deep-tissue laser therapy that penetrates a patient’s tissue using a highly technological combination of physics, laser science and engineering. The laser accelerates the recovery process by targeting tissues of the body, such as the nerves, joints and muscles, taking away nerve pressure and removing pain. It’s administered by either holding the hand-piece above the targeted area, or by pressing the hand-piece directly against the area, whether it is a patient’s back, knee or arm. Dr. Oda also treats sciatica, nerve neuropathy, frozen shoulder and osteoarthritis.
