Lisa Guo opened Yu Spa in 2013 in order to carry on the specialized modalities used by massage therapists and body work professionals she grew up around her whole life. She said it was massage therapy and the healthy and holistic lifestyle that encompasses most in that line of work that helped her lose more than 100 pounds several years ago.

"I used to be real heavy…and I used massage to help me lose weight and reduce stress," she said adding that she now uses massage therapy to take care of others. "I love being able to help people get rid of their pain."

Guo became a licensed massage therapist in 2009 and said she was drawn to Hinesville because of its close proximity to the military base.

"I always wanted to join the army but I am too old to join now," she said. In return Guo loves serving the military community helping them de-stress.

Yu Spa offers an array of therapeutic services. Guo said the two most popular treatments are the Deep Tissue massage and Swedish massage.

Swedish massage focuses on relaxation, Guo said. Deep Tissue is the most popular and Guo said when done correctly it helps to loosen tight muscles and flush out toxins from the body tissues. She said folks booking a Deep Tissue Massage are encouraged to drink plenty of water beforehand, which helps reduce soreness afterwards.

Yu Spa also specializes in prenatal massage. She said her staff has received specialized training in the delicate modality and it is a safe way to get some relief on specific pressure areas associated with pregnancy.

Guo offers Reflexology at her spa. This specific treatment is more than a mere foot massage. Reflexology is a specialized modality that uses the pressure point system taught in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The most popular method of Reflexology is applied to the feet but can be done on the hands and ears as well. Reflexology involves pressure being applied to specific reflex points which correspond to different body organs and systems. It is said to have beneficial effects on a person’s health. 

"Sometimes when I am massaging a person’s feet I can tell if they have stomach issues or health issues," Guo said.

By focusing on the pressure points, clients are able to alleviate ailments.

Guo offers free hot stone treatments to all military personnel and also with any massage that is 60 minutes or longer.

Guo said she finds her work rewarding

"Sometimes people come into my office hurting...not being able to even walk upright and when they finish their massage they feel better," she said. "That’s why I do it."
