Jamie V.

Massage Therapist "LMT"

Licensed massage therapist Jamie Vares graduated from Remington College's massage therapy program in October of 2010, and has been working as a massage therapist at Oda Ohana Chiropractic since March 2011.

Jamie has 55 hours of additional training in deep tissue release along with 25 hours of pregnancy and infant massage training and four hours in the study of Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. Also versed in the use of hot stones and aromatherapy, sessions can be made to incorporate a blend of several modalities and techniques, based on the client's individual needs for relaxation and pain relief.

Jamie, who grew up in Aiea, spent her childhood around many elderly neighbors and believes that observing their pain served as inspiration for her current pursuits. As she describes, "I was raised in a neighborhood that was 'old fashion local' in the sense that everyone was your family. I always wanted to help my "aunties" and "uncles" in whatever way I could."

Continuing to involve herself in the community today, Jamie volunteers her services whenever she can, from fundraisers to the Special Olympics. Simply put, "I enjoy helping people feel better," she says.
