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.
