Ione Stafford, LMT

Northern Idaho has much to offer for the adventurous. During my time away from the office and teaching I enjoy mountain and road biking. There are miles of amazing single track trails and paved trails within a short drive. Including the Hiawathia Bike Trail for a beautiful adventure.

When I’m not on two wheels I enjoy hiking and backpacking with our two dogs. No matter if its a day hike or a multi-day trip the options are endless.

Winter time here brings a whole different range of fun adventures.
Snowboarding, snowmobiling and back-country skiing keep us busy.
Wether you are here for a visit or a permanant resident I would encourage you to come in and experience the unique treatments that I have to offer. You will be happy you did!
