Coastal Massage & Spa is an award-winning seaside spa that has become a favorite among locals and visitors to the Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach areas.
Founded in 2012, their offerings include individuals, couples, and groups, massage, facials, bodywork treatments, on-site massage and “spa days sessions.”
Why you’ll love it here
When owner Theresa Anne Stevens, a Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist herself, opened the spa, she envisioned a professional, friendly spa experience in a warm, private, and peaceful setting. A spa that would cater to a clientele who expected and appreciated the best of the best in quality, care, and expertise.
Because of her vision and attention to detail, guests at Coastal Massage & Spa are able to take advantage of treatment rooms that are enriched with beautifully appointed treatment tables, soft linens, gentle music and a wide variety of signature treatment offerings.
Their expert massage therapists will listen to your needs for the day and create the perfect session each time. Pain management, stress reduction or pure relaxation – you will not find the one size fits all approach here. All massages are customized to the clients unique needs and include choice of aromatherapy, soothing soft eye pillow and a cozy heated table.
Spa services offered
Unlike salons who offer massage and facials in the midsts of hair fumes and blow drying, Coastal Massage & Spa purely specializes in massage, facials, and ensuring a five star experience for their clients (with over 125 five star reviews and counting!).
The spa is able to cater to clients seeking all massage techniques and are one of the only spas in the area that offer couples massage. Their on-site massage service is popular among businesses and visitors who prefer to have the therapist arrive with a table to their home, office, or hotel.
You can choose from a variety of facials or allow their on-site skin care specialist to conduct a customized facial based on your skin type and skin care goals that will leave you refreshed and glowing.
Another signature product from this spa is the Wrightsville Beach Message in a Bottle Gift Certificate. These are unique, handmade bottles where the gift certificate is placed inside and attached to a cork lid. The coastal chic look and fun usability of these bottles elevate every gift giving experience.

“Our mission is to re-educate the Wilmington area about the true benefits of pain management through massage and therapeutic massage therapy,” said Stevens.
For some, a massage is a luxury expenditure–a guilty pleasure to pamper yourself. But the team at Coastal Massage & Spa looks at massage from a healthcare perspective. In addition to relaxation, massage also can provide effective pain management treatment for a range of conditions such as back pain, sports injuries, jaw pain, anxiety, carpal tunnel, circulatory problems, women’s health issues, and many more.
What’s the most popular massage?
The most popular massage we offer is our Signature Wrightsville Beach Massage (aka The Perfect Massage),” says Stevens.
The Signature Wrightsville Beach Massage is a 75 minute massage that relieves areas of tension with deep-tissue massage to back, neck, and shoulders and then transitions to Swedish techniques over the rest of the body while incorporating hot towels, aromatherapy, and hot stones. This massage will end with a soothing foot and scalp massage. Yep, sounds pretty perfect! You can book a massage now through their site!
Coastal Massage & Spa is on Wrightsville Avenue in their new location at Grand View Apartments, just before the causeway that leads to Wrightsville Beach and is easily reached from downtown and Figure Eight Island. The new 3,000-square-foot spa opened in May 2018 and features nine treatment rooms, a locker room with showers, a steam room, a sauna, HydraFacial, relaxation space and a bridal suite for private events and bridal parties. The interior of Coastal Massage & Spa was designed to blend coastal elegance with a calming color pallette, soft textures and luxury finishes such as quartz countertops, glass tile and frosted glass windows and doors.
