Worthington Optimal Wellness was founded in 1987 by Dr. Julia Keiser.

In 2020, Dr. Keiser retired and the ownership was transferred to Dr. KJ Shannan.

The original name was Worthington Chiropractic. As WOW began to add more holistic means to augment chiropractic care, it became clear that the mission of WOW is to treat the whole person with natural and holistic methods. WOW’s core service remains chiropractic care.

WOW has 3 full-time chiropractors, 4 massage therapists, full-time staff who assist with nutrition, supplements, exercise, allergy relief, supporting products for better sleep, posture, and personal care. The office manager is Carol Grimm.
