I thoroughly enjoy being active, spending a large amount of my free time in the woods exploring, or hiking with my dogs.  Plus I enjoy working out.  Having done CrossFit, power lifting, body building, and am currently training for Strongman/ highland games.

I am also a veteran, having served over 7 years.  Doing a tour in Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom II) back in 2004-05.

I am confident that I can help you with your muscular ailments.  Whether its providing you relief from a stiff neck; to preparing for a sporting event. I look forward to assisting you.

"After five days of pain in my neck, three visits to a chiropractor, a visit to my PCP who gave me steroids to relieve the pain in my neck and shoulders. I was just about willing to try anything for relief. I stumbled on the website for The Care Collective and there was an opening. Mac was able to provide the pain relief I have been looking for. I have a greater range of motion and the pain is subsiding. I will definitely be back in the future. Going to have to treat my wife to a message in the near future." - KS

"Absolutely amazing. The knowledge that Mac has of the muscles and anatomy is astounding. His ability to target muscles and relax them is impressive. A++++" - AF

"Mac is an excellent massage therapist. I have long-standing nerve issues in my shoulder, neck, and back and he was able to provide lots of relief. He is very knowledgeable, the experience was very relaxing, and I feel so much better than when I woke up this morning. Definitely planning on rebooking!" - FK
