Devonne NafzigerFounder, Doctor of Acupuncture, Registered Herbalist
Devonne was born and raised in central Alberta, where she grew up with her family near Innisfail. She loves yoga, travelling, cooking and adventure. She became interested in holistic medicine while living in Asia. Seeing the way that natural healthcare was integrated with daily life in Asia inspired her to seek an education and career in Traditional Chinese Medicine (“TCM”). TCM uses Acupuncture, herbal remedies, diet and lifestyle therapies to reach and maintain optimal health. What she really loves about TCM is that it utilizes the body’s natural ability to heal itself and maintain balance to achieve wellness.
Devonne began her undergraduate studies in science at the University of Saskatchewan, before completing her Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (DTCM) in Calgary at the Canadian Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. After she graduated with her DTCM she travelled to
China to embark on a one year intensive internship training, at the Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where she trained under many famous doctors. This is an opportunity only a handful of Canadians have had the chance to complete.
