Licensed Massage Therapist

Mike is a former custodian who has been drawn to the healing arts for most of his life. He became intrigued early on by the connection between the mind and the body in regard to health and well-being. After developing neck and shoulder pain from many years of working as a custodian, Mike received a long overdue reminder about the value of massage treatment. Deciding it was time for a career that was more in line with his healing inclinations, Mike enrolled at the American Institute of Clinical Massage (AICM) to begin his training. He discovered both a talent and passion for massage, and knew he had finally found his calling. After graduating from AICM in September of 2015, Mike left Spokane for Western Washington to be with the love of his life. He now resides in University Place with his wife and a multitude of four legged children.

  • "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!!!"
