Josie Zhuo

About Master Josie Zhuo

Josie Zhuo comes from a family of four generations of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Tai Chi/Qi Gong practitioners. She is a licensed acupuncturist and holds a Master in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) from the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She also served as an apprentice with renowned Chinese medical doctors, Dr. Xie Sun Shen and Dr. Tan Cun Sun. When she was ten years old, she began her traditional martial arts and Qi Gong training. Later she was awarded the Champion for Women’s Sword at the First Beijing College Martial Arts Tournament in China. In 1991, she received the Educator of the Year Award by the Association of Teachers in New York.

Josie’s unique style of acupuncture and herbal therapy combines her knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine with healing elements of Tai Chi and Qi Gong practices. She works with patients to improve their overall health, not only by eliminating pain and illnesses, but also by promoting wellness. Dedicated to strengthening the flow of Qi energy, she educates patients about the connection between mind and body, and encourages preventive and self-healing techniques, such as food therapy, self-acupressure, self-massage, meditation, and energy healing exercises.

Patients and students express their appreciation of Josie’s vast reservoir of Traditional Chinese Medicine expertise, her life experiences, her compassionate care, and her everyday commitment to the art of energy healing.

Testimonials

"I had a disc herniation in my neck and had to have surgery. I was in excruciating pain. After only three acupuncture sessions with Josie, the pain subsided! I was able to get off pain medications. Josie approaches health from all viewpoints––mind, body, and spirit. She is a natural healer and I will be eternally grateful to her."
"When I first came to see Josie, Western doctors had told me that there was no further treatment they could give me to help relieve the pain in my arthritic foot. The pain was interfering in my work and my training in martial arts. Through acupuncture, herbal treatments, and continual work with Josie, I am now free of foot pain. Acupuncture treatments help me with my stress, my way of seeing my body, and give me an overall sense of well-being. Josie Zhuo is a tremendously skilled physician and a delightful person! I look forward to my sessions and continuing to learn more about Chinese medicine and energy."
Fran O’Donnell
"I came to Josie for my symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. My mood and energy were low, especially on grey days. Josie is a miracle worker! Beginning the first week of treatment I saw a dramatic increase in my mood and energy. I am so grateful. I am telling everyone I know about Josie."
Shawn Sutton
"Josie’s Qi Gong/Tai Chi class has been an inspiration. It truly helps me feel the mind/body/spirit connection, especially because of the teaching of Josie. Her gentle, wise, and warm guidance has helped make a difference in my life. I look forward to Josie’s class and hope that she continues to teach for many years!"
Joan Lite Miller
"For the last two years I have been having a nagging stomach discomfort at night. The sensation is bloating, as if gas cannot release. I have consulted many doctors and specialists, but no one could help me. The diagnosis they all agreed on is: IBS. The discomfort affected my quality of life—after the discomfort flared at night I could only sleep for four hours and felt overwhelmed as I’m also a new mom. A dear friend recommended Josie. After only a few treatments, my digestion and overall health improved. Josie’s stress-relief and self-massage techniques, meditation, and herbs are effective. My stomach and body are getting stronger. Josie Zhuo is truly a healing master."
Amanda Jacobs
"Josie Zhuo is a compassionate healer and master. Her acupuncture treatments and teachings improve my life in myriad ways. I no longer experience chronic shoulder pain or take daily medication and my anxiety after quitting smoking is diminished. Josie inspires me to practice Tai Chi/Qi Gong every day—movements that empower self-healing, rid blockages, and generate Qi energy passing through my body. She builds bridges connecting the physical and spiritual worlds by sharing Chinese traditions and philosophy in a gentle, yet powerful holistic way."
Geri Gale
"I started seeing Josie after a car accident. She decreased my pain level with the first visit. Besides being a skilled practitioner, she has a very open and accessible personality and she teaches you how to care for yourself."
Cathy Brinton
"I came to Dr. Josie after battling infertility for one year. I had tried various routes of treatment, including Western Medicine. My western doctor insists that I would not get pregnant without the help of the fertility drugs. I was convinced that this was not true and continued on the quest. Dr. Josie's calming words of encouragement and acupuncture really made me believe that my body was ready. And sure enough, one and a half months after treatment, I'm pregnant! Dr. Josie is truly a miracle worker."

Tai Chi and Qi Gong Teaching

Tai Chi, a centuries-old Chinese martial art form, enhances slow breathing, balance, relaxation, and tranquility. Emerging research indicates that the meditative practice of Tai Chi is beneficial for diseases, such as hypertension, heart disease, asthma, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.

Qi Gong, or “vital energy exercise,” promotes the conscious cultivation and nourishing qualities of Qi, or vital energy. Qi Gong, a self-healing art, combines gentle movements with deep breathing, self-massage, and meditation. Core movements are simple yet powerful. The energy exercise movements are designed to get energy flowing smoothly through pathways to promote vibrant health.

Master Josie Zhuo incorporates Tai Chi and Qi Gong into her acupuncture practice. She teaches her patients how to open their bodies and minds to Qi, the vital energy, according to their individual needs.

Tai Chi/Qi Gong teachings cover these five key elements:

  • Experience the Qi flow in your body—awaken and experience the Qi.
  • Promote a smooth and calm energy flow in your body by applying self-care acupressure points designed for your individual needs.
  • Practice the simple yet powerful energy movements to increase Qi, open energy blockages, and prevent Qi stagnation.
  • Gain insights into the interconnectivity of the body, mind, spirit, emotions and how they influence your health and wellness.
  • Discover energy characteristics of the four seasons and their effect on your organs systems according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
