My name is Stephanie Arnold! I have had the privilege of being a full time massage and bodywork therapist here at Relax! Massage & Skincare since 2017. I am honored to have been nominated in the top 3 Wilmington's "Best Massage Therapist" by Encore Magazine for both 2019 and 2020.

I graduated from the Myotherapy Institute of Massage in 2012. I did not receive a traditional in-class education, but rather a one-on-one personalized learning experience. Since then, my primary focus has been continuing to learn new ways to help my clients with pain relief through hands-on continuing education classes. I am a certified Neuromuscular Cupping Practitioner. Cupping is my favorite go-to modality! I am also certified in pre- and post-natal pregnancy massage. I have experience in both spas and chiropractic offices, as well as working closely with infantry soldiers before moving to Wilmington. I pride myself in bringing a unique blend of relaxation and therapeutic bodywork to my table. Helping people holistically address their concerns and see real results is the best part of what I do!
I'm currently attending Cape Fear Community College's esthetics program with an estimated December 2021 graduation date. My goal is to be dual-licensed in both fields, performing both massage and skin care services interchangeably starting in January 2022!
On a more personal note - I'm originally from a small, one red light town in southeast Georgia. I moved to Wilmington in 2015 to be closer to my family and like many of us in coastal NC, the beach is my happy place! Also, I'm a huge animal lover! I have a 16 yr old dachshund and a 3 yr old cane corso mix.

See what our clients are saying about Stephanie:


I really enjoyed my experience here for my prenatal massage. Check in was easy, and from the moment I arrived the environment was calm, serene, and relaxing. Stephanie was my masseuse and did wonderfully! She was knowledgeable about pregnancy related aches and pains, so she knew just how to help. She was gentle where needed and applied more pressure when needed also. I was very comfortable the whole time - baby too! I feel so rejuvenated and relaxed. Highly recommend. And husbands - pro tip: do like mine did and get this as a gift for your pregnant wife! Major brownie points!


Went for an hour long therapeutic massage and it was EXCELLENT! Stephanie was fantastic - she did a great job customizing my massage to target problem areas. The atmosphere was serene, and the essential oils and other added elements were incorporated seamlessly. Highly recommend!


Stephanie Arnold is amazing! I've now gone for several massages with her and it is perfect. She listens to my concerns and seems to know exactly what I need. The combination of aromatherapy, hot rocks and swedish massage is so relaxing. The facility is clean, quiet and peaceful. It's exactly what I am looking for when I walk in.
