The Birth of The North Raleigh Well Nest
Many years ago while living in California, Linda Zukowski, the founder of The North Raleigh Well Nest, had the vision of creating a wellness center that incorporated bodywork and other healing modalities with programs and workshops that the community could benefit from, while simultaneously supporting local artists.
Life got in the way, and nearly twenty years later, Linda found herself living in Raleigh, North Carolina with a thriving massage practice, but no wellness center. As the leaseholder of the suite she was practicing out of, she decided it was time to take steps to make her long-term dream a reality.
A fortuitous meeting with others interested in collaborating on serving women in Raleigh has helped The North Raleigh Well Nest become the cooperative space that it is today.
