About The Wellness Way in Granville, Ohio

We understand that common is not normal, and unlike the restrictive healthcare mentality, we dig deeper to find answers to life-restricting health challenges.

We focus on overcoming the three main causes of interference in the body — trauma, toxins, and thoughts — to go beyond symptom-based care and address your unique physiology in a way that allows your mind and body to find an individualized path back to better health.

We don’t guess, we test; rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, we utilize the most in-depth testing and cutting-edge diagnostic tools to uncover the hidden sources of health problems.

We provide the essential guidance to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles through a combination of testing, individual plans, and one-on-one guidance to restore your body to total wellness.

Dr. Erika Downs, DC

Location: Granville

The Wellness Way – Granville

Dr. Erika grew up in Newark, Ohio where she participated in many sporting events throughout high school and college including: volleyball, track, weight lifting and figure competitions. During her free time, you can find Erika playing competitive volleyball, doing any outdoor activity, and hanging with friends and family.

After high school she pursued a Physical Therapy degree, Holistic Nutrition and Wellness degree and a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic. Dr. Erika first worked in many settings with a career in physical therapy including: acute and rehab floors in the local hospital, outpatient, pediatrics and geriatric skilled nursing facilities. Although her love for physical therapy still persists, Dr. Erika started to research the chiropractic profession.

Her road to Chiropractic was heavily influenced by her own health journey that significantly improved through receiving chiropractic care. Dr. Erika spent years researching and looking for answers, believing that a pill for symptomology wasn’t the answer! After realizing the human body doesn’t make mistakes and that all systems work together, Dr. Erika became persistent on making sure others didn’t have to go years without answers to their health concerns. For that reason, Dr. Erika then pursued chiropractic as a career and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa.

While in doctorate school, she trained for 3.5 years under a world recognized spine and extremity expert addressing foot, knee, hip, wrist, elbow, arm and TMJ. She also spent 3 years learning from the Wellness Way practitioners as a student and is extremely excited to join the team as a doctor.

Dr. Erika is extremely passionate in finding the root cause and creating a roadmap to unlocking the body’s full potential of healing. The healing journey can begin for anyone at any age. Dr. Erika is determined to bring this new perspective of health to the Newark, Granville and surrounding areas of Ohio.

Dr. Caroline graduated with Magna Cum Laude with her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa.

Dr. Danae Fields, DC

Location: Granville

The Wellness Way – Granville

Meet Dr. Danae, a small-town girl from Cambridge, Ohio, who grew up diving headfirst into a whirlwind of activities. From nailing gymnastic routines to smashing softballs, dribbling soccer balls to sinking hoops, sprinting on tracks to spiking volleyballs, she did it all. But that wasn’t enough for her versatile spirit – she also tickled the ivories on the piano and let loose on the saxophone. And if that wasn’t adventurous enough already, she even hopped on horses for barrel racing and trail riding. When she’s not busy conquering the world, you’ll find Dr. Danae sweating it out in a competitive game of sports, soaking up the sun outdoors, or sharing treasured moments with her cat, Shady.

After high school, Dr. Danae’s journey led her to Cedarville University, where she majored in Exercise Science and became a force to be reckoned with on the NCAA DII softball field. Her quest for knowledge then took her to Logan University in Saint Louis, Missouri, where she earned her Doctorate in Chiropractic. But her academic pursuits weren’t confined to the classroom – she was an active member of The Wellness Way student club and honed her skills while interning at two different Wellness Way offices.

Dr. Danae’s fascination with chiropractic care ignited during her freshman year of high school when a volleyball season brought her face-to-face with back pain. She went to a chiropractor who revealed an undetected pars fracture in her back that had healed incorrectly. While the fracture remains a part of her, her chiropractor was able to get her back to the sports she cherished. Dr. Danae is so grateful for that chiropractor and wants to be that same light for others.

Dr. Danae is on a mission to empower parents with the unwavering confidence needed to raise strong and healthy children. In a world where health seems to be slipping through our fingers, she proudly defies the norm, guiding prospective parents, moms-to-be, and parents at every stage in making the wisest, healthiest choices for their family.

But that’s not all – Dr. Danae is on a relentless quest to help individuals reclaim the life they want to live. Whether it’s reclaiming their vitality, chasing after little ones, getting back into sports after injuries or time off, or pursuing any other passion, Dr. Danae stands ready to offer a helping hand!

About Our Events

What is your definition of health? At The Wellness Way, we recognize that most people have been conditioned to believe how modern-day healthcare practices are the experts of restoration and preventative medicine. However, our perception of the way the body functions differs from what is traditionally taught. Therefore, we conduct regular informational events to communicate how we view various systems in the human body. Our take on subjects such as hormones, inflammation, autoimmunity, metabolic syndrome, cancer, thyroid health, etc., strays away from “traditional” aspects. We value our patients’ ability to engage with their healthcare journey, which is why we hope by attending these events they achieve accountability and can take charge of their own bodies for a healthier future.
