Gene
Licensed Massage Therapist

Gene began his journey in massage when he was looking for alternatives in dealing with his service related injuries when conventional approaches were no longer working. A single father and retired U.S. Army soldier, Gene graduated from Everest College in January of 2012 in the top of his class. A firm believer in the inseperable connection between body/mind, Gene is a proponent of massage for relieving physical as well as emotional stress. He also strongly believes in massage as a viable modality for enhancing over all health and well being.

His approach to healing is thoughtful and heartfelt, and combined with his unique experiences, has the tools and knowledge to aid those on their way to a healthy and productive recovery and lifestyle.

    Thank you Dr. Eyford for adjusting my neck and back... I don't know what I would have done if you weren't there friday as i was in so much pain. I felt so so much better afterwards. You really saved me! The Health Connection team is fantastic!!"

  • "The Best in Tacoma
    I would highly recommend The Health Connection!! I am seen for massage & acupuncture which is unbelievable. I am always greeted very professionly by the front desk staff. The environment once you enter the office is very calm, organized and relaxing. I have had these therapies else where but nothing even comes close to Health Connection!!
    Definitely deserving of a TEN STAR!! Thank you for having a place to go that is so above the rest!!!"
