Meet Jolie Zhou: Your Experienced Guide

Gua Sha Spa was founded by Jolie Zhou, a licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist (LMBT) in North Carolina (License #15985) and a certified Reflexologist. With a Doctorate in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Jolie has not only practiced but also successfully taught various Chinese Traditional Medical Massage modalities, including Tuina, Cupping Therapy, and Guasha Therapy, in different countries and regions for many years.

Discover the Wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient healing system that dates back over 2,000 years, with some practices even older. One of its guiding principles is to “dispel evil and support the good.” While TCM effectively treats illness, Jolie’s drug-free treatments focus on strengthening the body’s defenses, enhancing its capacity for healing, and maintaining health. Through techniques such as Tuina, Acupressure, Cupping Therapy, hot stone meridians massage, Guasha, and Moxibustion with herbal massage oil, Jolie aims to restore balance in the body. Her goal is to assist you in building a functional body that remains in harmony.

A Holistic Approach to Health

Jolie Zhou has dedicated her life to studying Traditional Chinese Medical Massage modalities. She understands that the human body is intricately connected to all aspects of life and the environment. This includes factors like seasons, weather, time of day, diet, and emotional states. Jolie believes that true health is achieved when the body, mind, and spirit work in harmony. In TCM, the smooth flow of “qi” (pronounced “chee”), or life energy, is essential for well-being. Imbalances or disruptions in the circulation of qi are often seen as the root causes of disease. Jolie, with her expertise, assesses your health level through palpations and applies techniques to restore the balanced flow of qi.

Unlocking the Power of Qi

While qi itself cannot be directly measured or detected, its effects are evident in the success of TCM. Some in the West attribute TCM’s effectiveness to biochemical mechanisms, such as stimulating endorphin production through acupressure and Tuina, leading to pain reduction. The results of these treatments suggest that they influence adenosine receptors, which play a vital role in the body’s energy balance.

What People Say About Us

My lower back and shoulders are feeling much better after Jolie unblocked my meridians; she’s also very knowledgeable and gave me helpful advice on my insomnia. I’m feeling good overall now, but I’ll return to her first next time if something happens instead of to my acupuncturist or chiropractor.

I stumbled upon Gua Sha Spa and Jolie. My initial thoughts were a quick 30-minute trial, but Jolie was so thorough and informative. She walked me through every moment of the treatment and explained the lymphatic connections to my pain. It was an amazing experience and I will definitely be going back.

Amazing experience. My shoulder issue was resolved in 2 appointments, giving me full range once again. Jolie has extensive knowledge of the body and the ability to relieve pain through deep-tissue massage. She takes the time to listen to you and explains what she is doing. So very happy to have found Gua Sha Spa!
