Tui Na, Not Your Typical Massage

Stripping down to your birthday suit for a modern spa massage can be an uncomfortable

experience for many. And the results are often only temporary.


If you’re looking for a massage that provides longer-lasting results AND allows you to keep

your clothes on, look no further than Tui Na.


It’s a therapeutic form of massage that’s been used in China for millennia and is thought to

be the first system of physiotherapy. Tui Na has gained international attention in recent

years as a safe and effective treatment for a variety of conditions including fatigue, pain and

other musculoskeletal conditions.


At AcuMedGroup, Dr. Rusnak combines this ancient form of massage with acupuncture and

cupping therapy most often to alleviate pain and balance the body’s Qi, the circulating

system of lifeforce energy that is the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine.


Translated as “pinch and pull” in Chinese, there are many types of Tui Na techniques. The

general method entails a specially trained therapist using their arms and hands to massage

muscles and tendons and manipulate the body to improve blood flow and realigns the

musculoskeletal system.


Our Tui Na therapist Melissa has 23 years of experience in therapeutic massage and the

strongest hands in Central Florida. You might experience slight discomfort during and

shortly after the massage. But the result is a deeply healing effect on the body, which also

eliminates the mental discomfort associated with pain.


AcuMedGroup Wellness Center is not a spa, but it is a relaxing and serene place where you

can connect with yourself and heal from the inside out.
