About Us

Cloud 9 is a Health and Beauty salon based on the shore (almost) of Teignmouth, The Gem of South Devon.

Cloud 9 Health & Beauty is not an ordinary salon or therapy centre, why? Because Cloud 9 specialise in providing a range of holistic therapies in addition to a wide range of beauty treatments all within a calm and tranquil environment. The fully qualified and experienced therapists take time and concern to ensure each and everyone of their clients needs are met, whether they have come there for a pre-holiday wax or a relaxing massage. So throw away your worries, book your appointment and go to Cloud 9!

Treatment Rooms

Maria Arpino (NVQ, VTCT)


Maria has 15 years experience, specialising in areas relating to managing stress, anxiety and depression. She trained at South Devon College achieving NVQ, VTCT and Diploma standards, she continues her professional development today as an accredited member of Embody and BABTAC.

Maria is the owner and founder of Cloud 9 Health & Beauty. After working as a fully qualified therapist for 4 years she decided to fulfil her dream and provide the perfect surroundings and atmosphere for delivering treatments and so Cloud 9 was born. Opting for treatment rooms opposed to the more traditional shop front layout as many salons offer, Maria used her unique sense of style to create clean, calm and comfortable rooms in which clients can feel relaxed and zen-like!

Cloud 9 Health & Beauty┬áis now in it’s 10th year and Maria is busier than ever: “I specialise in massage and stress management (as well as being a fully trained beautician), so creating the right environment was so important to me. I like to offer clients a space to escape, irrespective of treatment type and length of time. I offer an ‘experience’ not just a treatment and give detail and attention to every single person I see, which can sometimes mean spending more time with someone than expected. We are all very different; acknowledging differences means I can create bespoke treatments and hopefully happy clients.”

As founder and owner Maria takes her fastidiousness for health and beauty into every element of Cloud 9. Therapists and visiting practitioners are personally vetted and all products sold at the salon and online shop have been trialled by Maria (with friends and family often roped in for thoughts and feedback).
