Founding Story

As a college student on summer break, I needed to make money, yet I had very little skills. I lived in Tacoma, Washington and one of the major employers was Nalleys Pickles. So, I went to work on the factory floor packing cucumbers in jars and enduring the strongest vinegar smell imaginable. The pay was a few dollars per hour over what I could make other pla

The aquatic PT is amazing no problems there. The issue I have is how few showers there are just 3 for everyone so you have to wait a bit.They just changed the shower curtains and got the shortest ones ever. If youre short the curtains cover nothing.I dont know who is in charge of rescheduling the aquatic therapy appointment over the phone but theyre very rude.I once got really sick had to go to the hospital and missed an appt the person over to the phone wouldnt let me schedule any more appts making me miss nearly three weeks of PT

I was referred to this place by a friend. I had arthritis in my hip that led to getting it replaced. My friend told me about the water aerobics class that they have. You have to have permission from your Dr to attend the class. I love the class. It has been the best therapy for me so far. The staff is friendly. Very accommodatiing. I only attend this class but they do offer other services that I havent had a chance to experience. I just started going here a month ago.

I was sent here by my therapist but I came to appreciate the people that manage the facility. The water is warm and the Jacuzzi is large.
