About 8 Weeks to Wellness®
8 Weeks to Wellness® was developed and founded by third generation Chiropractors, Dr. Dane Donohue and Dr. Denise Chranowski, specializing in health and wellness.
8 Weeks to Wellness® is a holistic wellness program that focuses on overall health. Our program encompasses all the fundamental wellness therapies, including Chiropractic, Exercise, and nutrition, and features a computerized Wellness Score.
The practice, which first began strictly as a Chiropractic office, has grown tremendously over the years due to patient demand and their success in approaching health from a wellness standpoint rather than sickness. This wellness approach led to the development of the 8 Weeks to Wellness® program for which the two doctors wanted to share with other like-minded professionals.
Chiropractic – True Healthcare at It’s Finest
No need to preach to the choir – we all know that Chiropractic is a healing art, science and philosophy that deals with the removal of interference to the nervous system. The primary role of the nervous system is to relay information in the form of energy to the brain. Then, the brain sends information back to the body through the nervous system to adapt the body to its environment. It is a feedback loop that is happening in your body right now in response to temperature, visual stimuli, sounds, smells, what you have eaten recently, body positions and many other environmental stimuli. How successfully your nervous system controls this process will determine your level of health. Chiropractic is not so much concerned with the treatment of disease, although we often help many conditions where other treatments have failed. Chiropractic is about maximizing your health potential by removing interference to the greatest healer that has ever existed, the healer inside you.
Statistics covering health and wellness in America are shocking. The CDC states that over 60% of adults in the U.S. are overweight and over 25% or 1 in 4 is obese. – The CDC also gives an equally alarming statistic on the growing trend that 40% of adults in America never engage in any type of physical activity. These two facts combined says the CDC are linked to an increased risk in a variety of chronic health conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
On our program your patients will work with your own professional personal trainer in a program designed specifically for your patients and your patients’ goals. You will work on 3 key aspects of fitness: Mobility and flexibility, Cardiovascular training, and Resistance or Strength training. Each program is tailored to your patient’s ability taking into account you age, any limitations or injuries they may have, previous exercise history, and their current starting fitness level. Whether you are 18 or 80, you will find this program a match for your patient.
Once considered to be pampering for the rich and famous, massage therapy is now finding enormous popularity among millions of Americans. Massage therapy has been shown to reduce waste products such as lactic acid that build up in muscles that are overworked. Massage therapy loosens tight muscles preventing formation of adhesions that restrict your range of motion and cause arthritis to set in.
Massage helps to stimulate the release of endorphins (the body’s natural pain killer) into the nervous system to reduce your feelings of pain and discomfort without the use of unnatural and risky drugs. It stimulates your body’s natural pharmacy, which is always dosage specific, target specific and most important, FREE! This is why our 8WW® program includes one 60 minute massage each week.
Mindfulness is taking control of your mind by directing its awareness towards something else, like your breath. Remember we are trying to strengthen our PEACE of mind muscles. This can’t be done without peace. It’s like trying to lift weights without the weights. Mindfulness is the mind-body tool that will remove fears, reduce cravings, strengthen self-awareness, and increase our ability to make proper choices when perceiving a stressful event. With 8 Weeks to Wellness® your patients will achieve an INCREASE in physical and mental relaxation, in alertness, in the capacity for more intimate and quality contact with others, in creativity and productivity, and in personal satisfaction with life and work.
The 8 Weeks To Wellness program will show your patients how to eat for the rest of their life. This is not a quick fix diet, a liquid diet, a starvation diet, a low carb diet, etc. It is simply an eating program that will teach your patient, maybe for the first time, how to eat properly.
As part of the 8 Weeks to Wellness® Program, your patient will learn how to read a food label, determine proper portion control, eat more frequent, smaller meals, and they will learn about their body’s need for proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It is all about choices…healthier food choices will make a healthier you!

"8WW has been a revolution for our office. It has set my chiropractic soul free. The beautiful thing with 8WW is that chiropractic is at the core of the program. I have no doubt in my mind that we are saving lives in our office. The objective criteria examination is evidence of this. It gives us the ability to base our client's health on function over feeling. We have had everything from a reversal of type two diabetes to lowering of cholesterol to weight loss of over 3 stone. 8 Weeks to Wellness works and it does 'what it says on the tin!'. I now have a mission to make 8WW the #1 recognized health program of the world! 8WW will save our profession in chiropractic and steer us in the direction our paradigm was born. A true HEALTH paradigm. We need to become the Wellness doctors of the future and lead our clients toward healing through changing their health and not fixing their symptoms. Become part of something that is changing the face of healthcare and join our 8WW tribe." Dr. Joe-James Tilley, United Kingdom
