Erina LanderErina Lander, Founder of A Touch of Bliss Organic Spa

My name is Erina and I am the founder of A Touch Of Bliss Organic Spa. I am a holistic Esthetician, Reiki practitioner and Facial Reflexologist. I came from the former USSR more then 25 years ago and found my home here in America. I hold a Masters Degree In Civil Engineering, Associate Degree in Dental Hygiene and a Certification in Esthetics. I love learning, staying current on the latest developments in skin care and incorporating a variety of techniques into the treatments I’m able to provide to my clients.

I became an Esthetician because I love bringing holistic beauty, joy, love and healing into the lives of everybody I touch and believe that true beauty starts within. I am fascinated with ancient healing modalities, the effects of what we eat and think, the power of the mind, and the miracles we can all create in our lives. My passion is to inspire my clients to live better lives and make good choices that are the best for them and our planet. I am honored to share everything I know with you.

My name is Tida. After graduating high school, I earned my Associates of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Quinebaug Valley Community College. While in school, I took a Medical Office Receptionist course and started working at a Naturopathic Physician’s office. While working there I had witnessed so many people transform by improving their lifestyle choices. I concluded that I wanted to help people in their journey of bettering themselves. After taking the Rhode Island State Boards and receiving my Esthetics license, I dove head first into the art of skin care, working to master: organic facials, essential oils, and professional makeup application.

I caught the brow fever and started working at a brow bar where I learned the secrets to shaping and filling in eye brows. I constantly am furthering my education, as I pursue a bachelors in business and consistently attend continuing education courses in Esthetics. I’ve taken many courses including bridal makeup and aroma therapy.

It is my passion to keep advancing in this ever-changing world of beauty, and to give my clients, here at A Touch Of Bliss Spa, the best services imaginable.

Hello, my name is Angie. I graduated CT Center for Massage Therapy in 2017 and have been in love with this field ever since. Prior to becoming a massage therapist, I worked in the medical field for 7 years as a medical assistant. Although I loved helping people, I did not agree with a lot of Western medicine approach – so I decided to make a change. With massage, I have found a great balance between a lifestyle I believe in , and still helping people the best way I know how. My goal is to introduce as many people as possible to massage while promoting self care. Massage has made a positive change in my life. I would love to make a positive change in yours.



My name is Melissa. I have been practicing massage and bodywork therapy for over ten years in Southern Arizona and Northeast Connecticut. I am a licensed massage therapist, a Biodynamic Craniosacral therapist, and a Modern and Aerial Dance instructor. I graduated from the Providence Institute in Tucson, AZ after studying both Western and Eastern Massage modalities. I came to massage after careers in non-profit and academia because I wanted to bring pain relief, body awareness, and balance to people in a way which honors each person’s individual pathway to healing as well as the stories their body carries. Among the modalties I offer are Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish, Medical Massage, Energetic Unwinding, Orthopedic Deep Tissue and Prenatal. I love meeting new clients and tailoring a treatment plan to their individual needs, whether that’s seeking pain relief and relaxation, addressing postural conditions, supporting long-term health issues and emotional holding, or simply seeking whole body maintenance and health. I practice a form of integrative massage and bodywork whose goal is to bring the physical, emotional, and energetic bodies into greater harmony as well as receptivity to living and sensation. In a treatment, we’ll achieve this through a combination of focus work on specific joint, soft tissue and fascial imbalances and Swedish, breathing, stretches and body unwinding. I believe that safety, respect and healthy boundaries are crucial to client-therapist trust and real results—and I promise to create a space that supports your success and healing.
