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 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.

Hello! My name is Christina. I am a Licensed Esthetician who is passionate about and dedicated to achieving extraordinary results for your skin. Transforming lives through skin care brings joy and fulfillment to my life. Knowing I’ve helped someone heal from something they have been struggling with is the ultimate reward for me.

With over 13 years as a professional in the beauty industry, I have had the privilege of receiving comprehensive training and attending seminars throughout the Northeast and Midwest. Some of my certifications include topics on the science of skin aging, advanced acne treatment, the art of hair removal, body contouring, and various aroma and touch therapies.

 I’m here to help you look and feel your very best! Having suffered from 1st and 2nd degree burns throughout my face and body during my mid-teens is what inspired my journey into skin care. In recent years, my own encounter with adult acne compelled me to seek knowledge specifically in different types of acne and how nutrition can also impact the health of the skin. Treatment of the skin truly needs to be uniquely customized. Taking care of yourself is very important, as you cannot pour from an empty cup! Come visit and allow me to pamper you!
