"Everyone in our office has been to Connections.  Some have gone just for relaxation, and some have gone for pain relief ... If you want pain relief or to just work out the everyday kinks that we all get, this is the place!"

— The Doctors and Staff at
Methodist Plaza Dental Group

Gordon Gymer has been a part of my health care team for over 20 years. I see him on an, as needed, bases and I know that whatever is sore, hurting or stressed in my body will be alleviated by his therapy. His clients get a massage, not a rubdown. I recommend Gordon often because of his skill and understanding of the human body. This is why he is part of my health team.

— Bob Barnes

Hello, I'm 65 years, a carpenter from birth, seems like. I have been going to chiropractors since I was 13. I have tried acupuncture, ice packs, heat packs, pain pills, shots in my spine, and Tequila. I found Gordon about three years ago. I walked into his office stooped over from low back pain that went all through my body. I had tears flowing down my face from the pain. Gordon worked his magic on me for one and a half hours. I walked out of his office standing straight and tall, no pain, I went home and went to sleep pain free for the first time in years.

You will feel so much better after seeing Gordon that you will think that your cured for life. You are if you stay on a regular visit to him.

Try Gordon just once and you will be a believer. Gordon can't fix everything, I still use Tequila a little bit, but not for pain.

— Burt R. Dobbins
