When it comes to getting bodies healthy, Doctor of Chiropractic Dusty DuBois poses a double threat. She not only holds a chiropractic degree with 200 hours of neurology training, but also has been an aerobics instructor for nearly three decades. She combines these fields in a practice that taps into the body’s own healing capabilities. Dusty’s chiropractic techniques correct pain without the use of drugs, and her Zumba, yoga, and belly-dancing classes keep physiques functioning at peak efficiency.

Though he once dreamed of becoming an astronaut, Christopher Hagedorn instead found his passion on the Earth; he's worked as a national forest hydrologist, oceanography-engineering consultant, and mountaineering-and-wilderness-leadership instructor. After roaming the country on more than 30 extended wilderness trips, he came to rest in the North Cascade Mountains where he leads adventure day trips and wilderness-skills classes. He and his team of experienced guides lead explorers of all ages on Family Adventure Backpacking trips to secluded and mostly unknown destinations, tackling rocky beaches, mountain hillsides, and coniferous forests.
On mountaineering trips, Get In The Wild shows groups how to traverse North Cascades National Park's rugged peaks, roaring waterfalls, and glaciers without having to arm-wrestle bears for passage. Canyoneering trips explore the Dirty Devil River and Capitol Reef National Park, navigating historic sandstone cliffs, rocky domes, and winding canyons; and give photographers the chance to focus their lenses on the wilderness of Southern Utah. Throughout their adventures, the guides keep their charges fueled with gourmet camp food, preparing vegetarian, vegan, and kosher options upon request.
They also lead classes in hiking, glacier climbing, snow camping, canyoneering, and wilderness navigation to help adventurers blaze their own trails.
Versed in a number of massage styles, licensed massage practitioner and Essential Body Wellness owner Leah Wendel-Tarabochia carefully tailors each treatment to ensure her clients receive the most relaxing and revitalizing massage possible. Upon entering her tranquil studio, guests can decompress in a designated quiet room before they’re led to treatment rooms outfitted with heated massage tables dressed in ultra-soft sheets. There, they’re lulled into deep relaxation as Leah goes to work promoting better circulation with gliding Swedish massage strokes or using water-treated hot stones to melt tension and keep clients from accidentally giving friends the cold shoulder. Beyond general relaxation and minor pain relief, Leah also treats sports- and work-related injuries, as well as neuromuscular and musculoskeletal dysfunctions, with her rehabilitation services.
