Dr. Dawn Smallwood, DC, NTP

Doctor of Chiropractic

Nutritional Therapy Practitioner


I was blessed to grow up on 15 acres of land in a small town in the Finger Lakes Wine Region of New York State where I enjoyed and quickly grew to love the beauty of the outdoors and the elements of nature during all four seasons.  Being in this natural environment since birth, I developed a deep-rooted desire to help people become and remain healthy and vital without the use of unnatural, invasive procedures or toxic drugs.  With this natural health drive, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health Education from Ithaca College in beautiful Ithaca, NY in 2000.  After experiencing a taste of the Northwest on a cross country camping adventure, I fell in love with the natural landscapes and moved to the Seattle area in 2002.  With a passion for lifelong learning and my intuitive knowledge that the body heals itself when given proper nutrition, I decided to complete my Nutritional Therapy Practitioner degree from The Nutritional Therapy Association in Olympia, WA in 2004.  This holisitic program only increased my thirst for more modalities of healing so I continued my education at the University of Western States in Portland, OR where I graduated Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2007.


Since undergraduate education at Ithaca College, my long-term vision was to help as many people as possible by establishing a wellness center.  This dream was realized as I managed and owned the Absolute Chiropractic and Wellness Center in the lower Queen Anne area of Seattle from 2009 to 2017.  Absolute was an oasis of holistic healing where massage therapists, acupuncturists, osteopathic doctors, and myself as chiropractor and nutritionist, worked collaboratively to help guide people to higher levels of wellness and vitality.  In 2017, my husband and I moved to Ronald, WA full-time where we have enjoyed participating in the community-centered atmosphere of this small town.  I have gratefully reclaimed my youthful enjoyment of nature and the outdoors through my adventures in hiking, boating, waterskiing, gardening, running and weight lifting, spending time with family and friends, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, jetskiing, RVing, and playing with my dog, Abbie!  Happiness abounds!  I am excited and honored to serve your natural healthcare needs.  Thank you for this opportunity to share my love of helping to spread holistic health and wellness out into the world!
