The little things are what make trips to Lavender Fields Day Spa feel extra special. Complimentary refreshments greet clients as they walk through the door: fruit spritzers, aromatic cups of herbal tea, and ionized water that wouldn't even melt the wickedest of witches. And the surroundings promise luxurious relaxation, too, as guests enjoy access to a spa lounge, sauna, and steam shower with their treatments.
It's no wonder, then, that Lavender Fields Day Spa is regularly named one of the best day spas in Connecticut by outlets such as Made Man and CBS. But of course, all of those extras are only icing on a non-edible cake filled with face and body treatments and spa packages for men, women, and couples.

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 souffl?d 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.
When Foot Reflexology CT founder Barbara Chudiak was growing up, her mother purchased a book entitled Stories Your Feet Can Tell. Barbara’s mother was enamored with how feet act as a link to the rest of the body—specifically, how pressure applied to the feet can help alleviate aches and stress. If Barbara ever came down with a stomach ache, or a headache, her mother would skip trips to the doctor and administer reflexology treatments. To Barbara's own amazement, the approach worked.
Barbara followed in the footsteps of her mother's fascination with reflexology as an adult. At first, she only used her healing touch on family and friends but soon realized she could help scores of others. So, she ditched the fast-paced world of business and opened Foot Reflexology CT. There, Barbara's reward isn’t a corner office with a view, but the relaxed and rejuvenated faces of her clients following a session. Barbara's repertoire of treatments stretches beyond feet, too, as she applies similar principles to the hands, face, and head to alleviate discomfort and reduce stress.
