About Us

Welcome to Rehabilitative Massage Therapy.  My name is Xiaoli Gao but I like to go by Li.  My practice is focused on providing my clients relief from pain associated with stress and repetitive motion injuries.   I am a registered Massage Therapist in the State of North Carolina (LMBT #14729).  I graduated from The Medical Arts School in Raleigh where my studies focused on a deep understanding of human anatomy with an emphasis on how to apply Massage techniques to relieve stress and pain.  In addition, I have received extensive supplemental training in California and in Guangzhou, China to enhance my knowledge and skill in the use of Trigger Point Techniques to relieve stress and pain.  This technique has been shown to be effective in providing relief from headaches, shoulder pain, upper...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • She is so talented and does amazing body work.

    Li is very professional and was very caring about her treatment.

  • Xiaoli knows what she’s doing! I will definitely be returning

    Different massage technique but it was amazing. I'll definitely be going back!

  • Li never said no to the clients that need help with the massage. She would go out of her way to help them to get better, I call that an excellent customer service. Would recommend this to everyone who wants professional massage.

    I like that she often ask if the level of pressure is ok. Mostly, the results last longer than what I get when seeing a chiropractor or PT. Best deep tissue massage ever!

  • Thanks The ancient Chinese medical technique is just amazing. Have a happy and safe trip to China.

    this was my first experience with acupressure, and I was amazed at its effectiveness in eliminating my residual shoulder pain (from a frozen shoulder). I also had some knee pain and general neck a shoulder pain from work. I left pain-free , feeling far greater fluidity in my gait.

  • I very much enjoyed my time with Li and I look forward to our next appointment. Her attention to detail was very strong, and I valued her focus on me and my needs. My only feedback would be that the sign in the hallway be updated to reflect that "if arriving at the time of appointment please knock." As our session was delayed by about 20 minutes, having arrived 15 minutes early, due to the sign's misdirection. All is well otherwise!!!!!

    The therapist is attentive and professional. She does not play around and she is âmazing. Would come b?ck for my pain mângement.

Very effective! I hadn't quite understood the difference between this type of massage and a more traditional (i.e., Swedish) one, but the treatment definitely improved my range of motion in a joint that is problematic. Thank you!

Li takes excessive care to improve your situation, not just provide short-term relief and make you feel good temporarily. That happens, too, of course. I had a lingering lower back issue which she resolved and her work has held for over a week. She actually told me to push out my next appointment to a later date signaling to me that she is more focused on my well-being than hers. Li is a breath of fresh air to this profession. I highly recommend her.

Li is a very passionate, knowledgeable therapist. She is thorough with her massages, she explains everything she will do based on the information you provided to her. She gave me recommendations on exercises and pain relief management to continue at home. Very friendly and professional. Would highly recommend her to anyone :) Thanks Li! Nadia

Seeing her has been Life Changing! She does incredible work. I came to her and could barely move my back was so sore and after just one session I was about 90% better! Had my 2nd session yesterday. When my Groupons are up I'm going to buy a maintenance package!

Great massage closer to medical than relaxation. She loves and is very knowledgable in her profession and it abundantly shows. She is especially keen to reacting to feedback and working on troublesome areas in your muscles. Once muscles are nice and supple, she then switches to more relaxation techniques, but I haven't reached that point yet. One of the most productive massages I've ever had, highly recommended.

I've only had one session with Li, I think her desire is to provide relief for pain or tension. I have other sessions scheduled I'll know better after a few sessions.

Xiaoli Chinese trigger point technic was wonderful! I highly recommend anyone who is suffering from joint/muscle aches, arthritis, allergies, etc. to make an appoint today! Within five minutes I was able to walk up a flight of upstairs without any pain. Xiaoli is very knowledgeable and an expert in her field.
