“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 love 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 has 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

Hello and Welcome to Peace Region Wellness,
I began my journey back in 2009 when I made the move from my small town, Spirit River, Alberta, to the “BIG City”, Edmonton, Alberta. At the age of 18, it was a scary endeavor, leaving my family, friends and everything I’ve ever known to enter the great unknown. I was so young and brave back then! 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 8 years combined acupuncture and massage therapy practice experience, I have learned from some of the best practitioners in my field and have thrived in many different clinical settings, all of which have prepared me for the dream I have created. I am thrilled to begin the next chapter of my career, I have the privilege of having my own acupuncture and massage therapy business in my home town of Spirit River.
As both a professional acupuncturist and registered massage therapist, I have experienced the power of combining both therapies, in turn amplifying the efficacy 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, deep, hard to reach structures are targeted that massage alone can’t reach, in turn decreasing 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 pain and muscle imbalances. I take pride in maintaining superior competency in all aspects of my practice. Along with various Sports Medicine Acupuncture certifications, I have also earned certification as a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (FABORM). The ABORM is considered the “gold” standard” of fertility acupuncture in North America and is involved in ground breaking research and collaboration with western fertility doctors and researchers to further enhance natural fertility.
As an Infant Massage Instructor, I have had the privilege of participating 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.
