With a focus on whole-body wellness for the entire family, the unique treatment protocol for each patient at Oda Ohana Chiropractic and Therapeutic Massage helps facilitate the extraordinary natural healing that can take place when the human body is being properly cared for.
Located on South King Street in Honolulu, the busy practice offers a broad range of chiropractic and massage services, as well as innovative laser treatments employed to treat a number of conditions. Oda Ohana can help with issues like back and neck pain, sciatica, scoliosis, and the headaches and migraines related to spinal problems. Pain and reduced mobility from accident-related disc injuries and whiplash are also treated here, as are arm, leg and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis and neuropathy.
Safe, powerful, effective and completely painless, deep tissue laser therapy allows highly targeted focus on muscles, nerves, joints and other tissues, eliminating pain and pressure through a process called photo bio-stimulation. “We first do a comprehensive evaluation and then prescribe a treatment protocol unique to each patient,” explains Dr. Paris H.T. Oda, DC, a chiropractor at the practice. “Each patient is treated with a different setting that is unique to their problem.”
Though laser treatments aren’t covered by insurance, they are approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and they have been proven to reduce pain and inflammation, accelerate healing and strengthen damaged tissue. Oda Ohana is a local, family-owned business, and Dr. Oda and his brother, Dr. Aaries Oda, earned their Doctor of Chiropractic degrees from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose, California. Both are board-certified members of the American Chiropractic Association and Hawaii Chiropractic Association.
With a combined 18 years of experience in chiropractic, the Odas have developed a careful, hands-on approach that inspires patient confidence. “I feel we are unique in that we take our time treating our patients,” Dr. Oda says. “We bring back the value of a doctor’s bedside manner by listening carefully to a patient’s concerns, then evaluating their problems, then providing them treatment for their injury.”
Treatment for an entire family includes pre-natal care, pediatric chiropractic care and wellness programs to encourage and maintain spinal health and mobility. Massage services include shiatsu, lomi lomi, Swedish, trigger point, deep tissue, sports and prenatal treatments. “We additionally offer treatment for workers comp and car accidents,” says Dr. Oda.
The Oda Ohana team also offers an effective modern approach to weight loss through laser therapy. With this technology, light energy from the laser accelerates the body’s natural metabolism, causing fat to burn quickly, and increasing production of collagen. Weight loss and cellulite removal occur with as many as one to two inches of fat reduction after treatment.
Dedicated to effective communication and supported by comprehensive experience and training, Dr. Oda and his team are committed to delivering effective treatments that transform the lives of their patients, and to encouraging wellness as an achievable goal.
“One of the best pieces of advice I give my patients is this: Listen to your body,” says Dr. Oda. “Natural healing occurs from within, and anything that naturally helps promote that will be beneficial.”
He recommends eating healthy, organic food as much as possible; taking nutritional supplements that support your lifestyle, and active movement on a daily basis. “Doesn’t matter what activity; it will do your body good in the long run!”
