    Kneaded Work
    Massage Therapist
    Being mobile, I come to the office for maintenance de- stress relief. Stress is the slow, didn't know it was happening, killer.

    Love taking my table for pregnancy massage, knowing the person can just go to sleep afterwards, ultimate decompressing from the changes that are occurring in the body at such a fast rate!

    I have been massaging professionally for 20 years, and still learning new techniques about our bodies.
    Research has shown that massage improves pain and function,better then Narcotics.  I work with all beings that are need of healing.

    "If you want to be strong and healthy, listen to your body. Learn from your life and don't allow negative emotions to manifest in your body. It's not individual health you work for. Your body is a microcasm of the earth itself. Take care of your body and take of the earth."

    Linda Kunicki has had numerous positions that have allowed her to service others from children to seniors in various positions and was the family caregiver through her mother’s aging process from 1999-2015. From studying trends she knows that our senior population is growing and impacting many of the services needed in our world. This trend is also affecting the senior’s adult children who may also have youngsters putting them into the sandwich generation. All these segments are in need of care and resources that services the generations. When she saw that BrightStar Care had earned the Joint Commission Accreditation she knew then it is a premium company which is important to her; it’s also the people with BrightStar  who showed passion and a mission to serve the community that drew her to become part of this company.

    Social Media Success Catalyst
    Ask me about social media marketing & you’ll enter a lively discussion about unsuccessful "random acts of social media” which don’t deliver ROI. I may bend your ear about frustration with template solutions being peddled to the detriment of businesses that need to uniquely build their social presence. 

    It's about building trusted business relationships. I’ve been helping companies master social media since 2009, from Mom N’ Pop Shops to Fortune 100 corporations. One of my specialties is in regulated professional services, but my adaptability allows me to service a wide variety of industries.
