Unique Talents for Your Health

Oct 27, 2016 09:35AM
Neck Back & Beyond Healing Arts is excited to have the unique talents of Nathalie Depastas, MS, MMQG, LMT, Lic.AC on their wellness team. Depastas is a licensed acupuncturist, shiatsu, massage therapist and medical qigong practitioner with more than 30 years of experience.

Qigong is a mind-body practice that improves one’s mental and physical health by integrating postures, movement, breathing techniques and focused intention. Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork based on the theoretical framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Shiatsu means “finger pressure”. Today, Shiatsu has a number of different styles. Some concentrate on acupressure (acupuncture) points, while others emphasize more general work on the body or along the pathways of energy to influence the qi that flows in them.

The body is its own greatest healer, yet, when illness takes hold, the forces that heal are commonly depleted or diminished. Depastas is highly skilled and intuitive using these ancient treatment modalities to stimulate strong healing forces within the body. With qigong, she teaches her patients movements that also build these same vital healing forces at home or office.

Location: 10560 Main St., Ste. PH-1, Fairfax. For more information or to schedule a group or individual session with Nathalie Depastas, call 703-865-5690, email [email protected] or visit
