Devon Jarvis Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, Infant Massage Instructor


or call 780-428-8897 to book

As both a professional acupuncturist and registered massage therapist, Devon has experienced the power of combining these therapies, in turn extending or amplifying the effectiveness of each. The method of combining acupuncture and massage therapy allows her to achieve changes in muscles and fascia that might otherwise take numerous sessions when using each technique alone. For instance, massage therapy is effective at increasing blood circulation, aligning muscle fibres and breaking up fascial restrictions;  and a manual stretch can return a shortened muscle to its healthy length. When used with Acupuncture she can target deep structures that massage can’t reach, and in turn decrease inflammation and pain, and speed up the healing process.

Devon is also a certified Infant Massage Instructor and was also a practitioner involved in the Pediatric Integrative Medicine (PIM) Trial at the Stollery Childrens Hospital which was the first of its kind to offer complementary health services to hospitalized children.
