A father-son team, Dickson Flyfishing guides and teaches fly-fishing to all levels of anglers on Olympic Peninsula waters, Puget Sound rivers, and many eastern Washington rivers. Conscious of their environmental impact, they lead eco-rafting trips throughout the year on the Skagit, Sauk, and Queets Rivers, as well as fishing trips for steelhead, cutthroat trout, and salmon with scales made of gold. More adventurous clients can embark on winter fly-fishing trips for tarpon on the flats of the Caribbean or three-day campouts on the Grande Ronde River. Additionally, scenic rafting tours bring visitors up close to wildlife such as eagles. Dickson Flyfishing also runs a virtual fly shop, where they sell their own line of equipment.

Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner Jong Rea Roh anchors his practice at ON Acupuncture Clinic in the ancient Chinese concept of chi, the life energy that controls the body’s health and vitality.

Jong Rea Roh addresses discomfort that spans all bodily systems, from musculoskeletal pain to digestive discontent and even psychological concerns such as depression and anxiety.
Cutting-edge technology and New Age philosophies collide at Canadian MediPain Clinic, where treatments are based on groundbreaking medical research, but remain entirely noninvasive.

Canadian MediPain Clinic also has a location based in Calgary.
Clinic director and surgeon Dr. Segal oversees a well trained staff of hair harvesters that rounds up ready-to-pick follicles using gentle laser technology. The clinic’s high-tech hair-removal equipment channels safe radio frequencies in conjunction with light energy to stunt actively sprouting hairs at the follicles. Fingers can rid themselves of excess hair (a $50 value per session), and ladies can strut puddle side with confidence after thorough bikini line maintenance (a $175 value per session). To reduce redness and discomfort, Segal Vein and Laser simultaneously cools the surface of the skin. Unlike flailing toward a wall of flypaper, Segal Vein and Laser’s treatments typically do not require recovery time.
