Embrace was established in 2009 to provide Westside-area residents with the most comprehensive therapeutic treatments available outside the traditional medical community. Starting as Chiropractic and Acupuncture practitioners who specialized in sports injuries, we broadened our focus to encompass many lifestyle-related health treatments, including ergonomics issues, strength, flexibility and nutrition. Our practice now specializes in rebuilding your natural energy and well-being by repairing and mitigating physical problems.
We understand that pain and discomfort can hinder your body, mind and spirit. We promise to use our unique combination of therapies and personal attention to ensure your rapid recovery.

Dawn Yoshioka, D.C., C.C.S.P, L.Ac
A native Southern Californian, Dr. Dawn Yoshioka (affectionately known as Dr. Dawn) grew up living a very active and athletic lifestyle. She always had a passion for sports and today she continues to participate in basketball, surfing, snowboarding and bicycling.
Every athlete has his or her fair share of injuries, and Dr. Dawn was not immune. Throughout the years, she has been treated with both acupuncture and chiropractic care. From these experiences, she learned that finding the root cause of problems can help the body heal faster and more efficiently than relying solely on medications. The benefits of both styles of treatment drove Dr. Dawn to pursue her own studies to incorporate traditional Chinese medicine with chiropractic care.
To this end, Dr. Dawn achieved her Bachelor of Science in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology at UCLA. Following her undergraduate studies, she earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic and Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Southern California University of Health Sciences. This is where Dr. Dawn studied under some of the most respected Acupuncturists and Doctors of Oriental Medicine.
With a desire to expand her knowledge of sport-related injuries, Dr. Dawn became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP) and also attained a certification in Active Release Technique (A.R.T.), which is a patented soft-tissue system/movement-based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Dr. Dawn created Embrace Healing & Wellness to provide the most comprehensive care to her patients. She always had the dream that she could help people as a whole rather than treating just the symptoms of disease. Her motto: Live your life now—embrace your healing and wellness!

Carol Alonge graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences with her Doctorate in Chiropractic and Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. She spent her internship learning a variety of skills with well-known doctors that specialized in sports injuries, pre- and postnatal care, and family wellness.
As a wellness advocate, Dr. Carol understands the importance of health and what the body needs in order to get back on track. She uses an assortment of techniques to personalize each treatment for that individual’s specific needs. Treating the body as a whole, she focuses on getting the patient back to optimal health as soon as possible. When Dr. Carol isn’t hanging around the office with her patients, you can find her on the beach, with her family and friends, or on one of her daily runs around the neighborhood.
