I am happy to have found Helene…

Thank you for a fabulous facial. Your knowledge, application and attention to detail to treat your clients utilizing safe & sumptuous products can never be underestimated. It’s not just the great products it’s the knowledge & years of experience of a trained professional to produce the highest level of excellence without spending a fortune. I have been going to Helene for the last 15 years and I can’t imagine going to anyone else. You care about your clients and take great pride in the work that you do. It really is an amazing experience.

I have been a client of Helene’s for over 10 years now, and I could not be happier! Over the past year, I found myself dealing with particularly bad breakouts. After visiting a dermatologist in Boston, where I now live, I was told that the only real option for my skin would be to take fairly intense acne medication (e.g., Accutane). I decided to see Helene while I was back in New York and she managed to transform my skin within less than 2 months. No medication needed!! I am beyond grateful for her services and know that I will be an ongoing client in the years to come.

I would, and have, recommended Helene for any type of cosmetic or therapeutic procedure. Helene is the most knowledgeable esthetician I have met. As far as massage therapy, this is not your “run of the mill massage”. Helene can pinpoint areas of pain and works with your body in a therapeutic and healing way. There has never been a time when I have been anything less than completely amazed at how I feel after one of her massages, regardless of the shape I was in when I walked through the door. Helene makes a total commitment when it comes to accomplishing her clients goals and well being.

My family including my children have been using Cloud 9 services for years. From facials, massage and waxing, there is no other place.

Not only is Helene passionate about what she does, her personality is perfect for this type of business. Her calming aura is all part of the experience. Cloud 9 is the perfect place for top notch treatments that will leave you feeling better than when you walked in.

Helene is so dynamic and always on top of the latest ideas with her facial treatments. I always look 10 years younger after one of her facials. Not only does she examine your skin, but she knows exactly what you need. Everyone should at least try Helene. You will
see the difference immediately!

I’ve been a client of Helene’s for about 16 years. From the beginning I found her to be passionate about her work, nurturing in nature, great at all she does, super knowledgeable, and the results I get have never wavered. The treatments I receive from Helene are facials, eyebrow shaping, waxing, and my favorite is the massage. Helene has wonder hands! I go, I relax, I breath, and walk out a new person. Thank you Helene for all you do!

I love Helene! I’ve had pigmentation issues around my eye area for many years, and every other product, diet or lifestyle change did not improve my skin’s overall health as much as Helene’s facials. She has gone out of her way to try new products that have also alleviated the symptoms, and most importantly she is a breeze to get along with. A lively and unassuming personality, Helene makes you feel at ease in any situation (even for those awkward bikini waxes!). Her services are located within ‘Amadam’ hair salon so its not a full-blown ‘spa’ experience, but Helene’s expertise and quality work (at a reasonable price) will leave you satisfied & relaxed regardless. Definitely recommended!

Love Cloud 9 Day Spa and Love Helene! I have been going to her for over 10 years! She is great at putting you at ease, she explains everything,  she is professional, honest and just all around fantastic!! Don’t hesitate!!

This place is great.  Helene and all of the women there are very professional and skilled technicians – plus they are all very sweet.  I go there once a month for massage and it is sooooo beyond worth it!!!

This place is awesome!  I had a facial here yesterday. Helene took the time to evaluate my skin and determine the best treatment for me. She was knowledgable, patient, and made my experience relaxing and enjoyable. My skin was glowing afterwards and wasn’t red or puffy like I’ve seen happen after extractions.  I will return and highly recommend!!

First time getting waxed professionally.

I was a bit worried about the pain factor, but Helene did such a wonderful job allaying my fears.  Her friendly personality completely changed the entire procedure into something fun and relaxing!

Was there pain? Yes, of course… but anyone who goes for waxing should know this!

Note- Helene works FAST, so if you are looking to be coddled and pampered, then best look elsewhere.
But if you are looking for a clean, friendly salon that can fit into your busy schedule, check this place out!

Extra bonus- if you leave your cell number, you will get text-messaged confirmations and reminders.

I recently bought a Groupon for Cloud 9 Skin Care & Body Work Center for waxing.  It was a great deal and the center is close to my home, so I thought what could be the harm in trying!

I had an amazing experience at the center.  I walked in and was waited on immediately.  More importantly, waxing is an uncomfortable situation but Helene, my waxer, made me feel so comfortable and at ease.

I am so glad I bought this Groupon because I found a new center for all my waxing needs and even other services that I plan on trying.

Helene is wonderful. She is SO down to earth and when you meet her, it will feel like you’ve known her for years. I’ve only seen her three times so far but I feel so comfortable while there – let’s face it, getting a wax is always a little awkward, but not with Helene.

As for the wax itself – it was wonderful! I first went to Helene with a Groupon and was slightly hesitant but after reading one review here on Yelp, I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did.

Helene also specializes in massages and facials, although I have yet to book one of those services with her.

Helen is great! I went for my first time 2 months ago. My wax was done quick and as painless as possible. Definitely going back!

– Aneis L.

I decided to go to Cloud 9 to see Helene for a wax because of the great reviews on yelp. SO glad I did! She’s amazing. Booking an appointment with her is really easy – she does everything via text message. I had a hard time finding the place as Cloud 9 is inside of the Amadam Salon on Central Ave in Pearl River. But I called Helene to ask her where she was located and she guided me right to it. She’s so sweet and funny, and the wax was super quick! I used to go to the European Wax Center, and now I’ll never go anywhere but to Helene. Totally worth it!

I highly recommend Helene for bikini waxing and skin care treatments. It was my first time getting a Brazilian wax and she was especially friendly and good at calming my nerves. She explained everything about the procedure and left no surprises, which I really appreciated. She also explained to me afterwards how to properly take care of my newly bare skin. I can’t believe how relatively painless my first Brazilian wax was!

I purchased a Groupon for a facial with Helene. I had been recommended by someone to see her for a facial. The spa is located in a hair salon called Amadam. Helene is very friendly, down-to-earth and warm. The spa itself is a no fuss, no frills type of place — she uses Dermalogica products. I think if you have fairly sensitive skin, just warn her in advance because the Dermalogica products can be very strong. However, the results are amazing — Helene is very thorough with her extractions and upon leaving her spa, my skin’s condition has improved. I have to say her extractions are much less painful than other places I have been to, and she really does make a conscious effort to get everything out of your face versus leaving bits and pieces to harpoon you in for additional treatments or to push products on you. She’s got a great temperament. I appreciate her facials although she does leave you to steam and leaves the room, you don’t feel pressured to talk to her during the entire process like in some spas where the estheticians can be extremely chatty whilst you’re getting your treatment. Compared to other places, this isn’t an establishment you’d go to for the ambience but if you’re going to get honest results – this is definitely the place for you. I would recommend this establishment if you have acne prone skin or problematic skin because you’ll definitely see results.

I went to Helene for my first Brazilian wax she is so friendly and made me feel so comfortable I almost forgot what I was doing!!! I recommend her to anyone who needs any type of wax she is great and her prices are good!!! I have also used her for other waxing!

– Nanc G.

Helene is an expert esthetician and very helpful. I very much recommend her for any of your skin care needs.

– BG.


Loved Helene. She was so kind and welcoming. She put me at ease and even went further than what I signed up for… great skin advice as well. Such a big change in the morning. Loved it!

– Scarlet K.

I have been getting facials and massages from Helene for over a decade now. She is a caring and knowledgeable practitioner. Her skills as an esthetician are amazing, and I love the Dermalogica product line. Also I can’t say enough about  her awesome massage treatments. Helene is very “in sync” with my needs, and I always feel very uplifted after my time with her. Her pricing is competitive. I would highly recommend Cloud 9 and look forward to my next visit!

I have had services done by Cloud 9 Spa many times and have been very happy every time. I highly recommend this place if your looking for professionalism and a great job!
