$39 for a 60-Minute Swedish or Deep-Tissue Massage ($80 Value)
During Swedish massages, Kristina Mozzicato, LMT, taps and kneads weary muscles to increase circulation, soothe aches, reduce stress, and improve flexibility. During deep-tissue massages, she aims to root out knots and chronic pain caused by repetitive motions and past injuries and helps flush toxins from the body. Since Kristina customizes each massage, she’s happy to blend the two modalities.
Kristina E. Mozzicato, LMT
Kristina Mozzicato is a modern-day Renaissance woman. In addition to earning two bachelor's degrees from the College of the Holy Cross in Italian studies and music, she baked and souffléd her way to a culinary-arts certificate from the Connecticut Culinary Institute. So it wasn’t too much of a stretch for her to add a degree from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, a massage license, and national certification to her list of credentials.
In characteristic Kristina style, she approaches her bodywork with a refreshing degree of meticulousness. To protect her clients from parabens, artificial preservatives, and synthetic chemicals, Kristina uses only nontoxic lotions and creams during her massages. She's especially fond of Young Living therapeutic-grade essential oils, and incorporates them into her sessions gratis upon request. While she kneads sinews, she draws on a range of modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, trigger-point therapy, and hot stone. Taking the path less traveled, her raindrop massage technique combines Vita-Flex techniques with essential oils to bring the body and mind into harmony, boost immunity, and reduce pain. When she isn't helping humans mend, she massages canines to help them cope with stress, aching joints, injuries, and nightmares about vengeful squirrels.
