  • "Thank you!
    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!!!"
