“Devon is a wonderful practitioner! She is very knowledgeable and not only gives me great care during treatments but gives me advice on exercises and lifestyle adjustments that I can make outside of the treatment room. She truly encompasses holistic practice and I loe that every aspect of my being feels at ease with her guidance.”Ashley
“Devon is a talented practitioner. As a fellow acupuncturist, I have referred patients to Devon if they are in her area. I know they will always get the best care and effective treatments. Everyone I have referred to Devon have reported back with remarks about their progress and how happy they are with their results.”Taylore
“At 50, menopause set it and with a vengeance. I endured ceaseless hot flashes and night sweats for over a year as I wasn’t prepared to try any hormone therapies. Devon suggested she could put together a tailored blend of Chinese herbs to help alleviate my menopause symptoms. The blend worked! I went from 12 hot flashes per day to 3. I have to remember to take the blend faithfully, as when I don’t, I notice the hot flashes return. I am so grateful for Devon!”Gerri
Devon Jarvis R.Ac, RMT
Registered Massage Therapist
I began my journey 9 years ago when I made the big move from a small town in Alberta (Spirit River) to the big city (Edmonton). It was there that I began my Massage Therapy studies. After becoming a RMT, I then made the natural transition into becoming an Acupuncturist. I now have 7 years combined acupuncture and massage therapy practice experience under my belt, as well as various sports rehabilitative acupuncture and massage, pregnancy and fertility acupuncture and massage certifications. I have learned from some of the best practitioners in my field and am excited and ready to begin the next stage of my career and life. I get the privilege of starting my own business in my home territory, the Peace Region!
As both a professional acupuncturist and registered massage therapist, I have experienced the power of combining both therapies, in turn amplifying the effectiveness of each. Combining acupuncture and massage therapy allows my patients to achieve changes in muscles and fascia that might otherwise take numerous sessions when using each technique alone. When massage is used with Acupuncture I can target deep structures that massage alone can’t reach, and in turn decrease inflammation and pain. This speeds up the healing process in a more effective and efficient manner, enabling the patient to reach their wellness goals faster and with ease.
I am continually working on fine tuning my acupuncture and massage therapy skills in the fields of fertility, obstetrics and gynecology, as well as musculoskeletal pain and imbalances. I have primarily focused my energy on prenatal/labor support acupuncture and fertility acupuncture. I am taking The American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) exam in the spring of 2018 to take my fertility acupuncture knowledge and certification to the next level.
I am also a certified Infant Massage Instructor and was a practitioner involved in the Pediatric Integrative Medicine (PIM) Trial at the Stollery Children’s Hospital which was the first of its kind to offer complementary health services to hospitalized children.
