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.

Alicia Mazzoni
My name is Alicia Mazzoni and I am a Massage Therapist at A Touch of Bliss. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had the ability to really connect with people. I have so much positive and healing energy to give and I’ve always wanted to help people with whatever they happen to be dealing with or going through in their life. I discovered my love for massage therapy right after high school and I have been licensed since 2015 after attending The Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Newington Connecticut. If you’re looking for a complete sense of relaxation, you found the right table! I specialize in classic Swedish, CBD ritual, our signature Ultimate Bliss, and Deep-Tissue Massage for those areas of your body that really need some attention! My goal is to make sure you feel relaxed, relieved and ready to take on your day. I believe self care is so important and that you should really take the time to appreciate yourself and give your body, mind and soul what it really needs to achieve balance. I think nature is life and you can never stay outside for too long. I love seeing the difference I can make in my client’s life. In this day and age, a little relaxation can go a long way. So if you’re looking to have a quiet, calm, stress free experience in this hectic life we are living right now, come visit me and I would love to be a part of your self-care routine!

My name is Brittany and I’m excited to join A Touch of Bliss Organic Spa. My background in Human Resources has given me the ability to better understand your needs and communicate clearly. I have been working with clients to provide quality services with a holistic approach. After having suffered with hormonal acne for many years, working with acne clients to heal their skin became my passion. My goal is to provide a results oriented treatment that will give you an ultimate relaxation simultaneously. Because of this, I take education very seriously and continue to challenge myself to learn and grow consistently. For me, it is a gift to help others change and grow. I love sharing my knowledge to empower you to feel your best.
I can’t wait to meet you so I can guide you on your self care journey to a beautiful, confident YOU! 

Hello my name is Kate and I am a Guest Services Expert at Touch of Bliss. Whether I am welcoming you to the spa, or saying goodbye after your appointment, it is my goal to create a relaxing and peaceful environment. During the first year of the pandemic I left Boston behind, along with my corporate career, and moved to West Hartford. I am now a certified Yoga Instructor and I believe that reconnecting with your body is one of the most cathartic acts of self care imaginable. My hope is that you will let go of your daily stress and relax, even just for the short time you are here, so you can leave more in tune and open than you were when you arrived. 

Hello! My name is Meadow. I am a Guest Services Expert here at A Touch of Bliss. I am super passionate about helping others feel good about themselves and I love creating a homey, and safe space for all of the unique individuals who come to us. I come from working in banking and dance so I love getting to know you and being able to personalize your visit. I am super outgoing and love to socialize so it is my pleasure to be able to meet and assist every guest who comes to us. I believe every single person has beauty inside of them, and sometimes being pampered is just the thing you need to have all the confidence in the world. Being the first and last person you see at the spa, I promise to make your experience as relaxing and stress free as possible so you can go home feeling as amazing as you felt here!
