About Wild Iris Wellness
Life is a balance of holding and letting go.
My name is DeVere Keen Gamble and I am the owner of Wild Iris Wellness. Self-care has been an important part of my life ever since I was in my early 20’s. I remember the feeling of walking out of my first massage and finally feeling so good under my own skin. I realized how much I took my body and health for granted. I was ready to stop abusing my body, both mentally and physically, and say thank you for all of the miracles my body was doing at every second of the day. Not only did I want to continue to take the time to give my body this love and gratitude, but I also wanted to give that same experience to other people as well.
I opened Wild Iris Wellness to do just that, support my clients maintain and obtain a healthy and vibrant life. I blended two modelaties that have shifted my life dramatically, craniosacral therapy and health coaching, to create a healing space designed for my clients.
The first time I had a craniosacral therapy session, I felt like I was floating on water, and that sensation lasted for days. I knew that there was something so deep and profound with this type of work and I was drawn to it immediately. When I was a massage therapist, I found that adding craniosacral therapy into my sessions gave a deeper, more healing and beneficial experience than massage alone. After attending classes with the Upledger Institute for Craniosacral Therapy, and studying under a local osteopathic doctor, I decided to make craniosacral therapy one of my primary offerings.
I believe that most modern day diseases are caused by stress and/or trauma. Our bodies get stuck in the sympathetic nervous system - fight flight. Our bodies weren’t designed to sustain fight flight for long periods of time. Craniosacral therapy helps people hit the reset button on the autonomic nervous system so they can be in their more natural state of ease and grace.
I wanted to offer another tool that would pair well with craniosacral therapy and became a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City. I now have more tools to better serve clients in reaching their optimal health and well-being. This adds a holistic way to look at what’s working and not working in people’s lives, on and off the plate. From food, relationships, career choices, how you move your body, cooking, connection and play, all of these pieces fit together to create a picture of health.
Health is a journey not a destination.
When I am not supporting my clients in the office, you can find me in the mountains of Colorado, or the deserts of Utah with my family, tending to the garden, doing yoga and playing the ukulele, or taking road trips in our camper van to explore new places.

"DeVere is a gift! DeVere is a healer. No doubt about it. In my latest session with her I had such a profound deep release that I was able to make a massive emotional transition I had been resisting for months. I walked away feeling lighter, more grounded and completely at peace in my own skin. I highly recommend anyone looking for a shift in to greater peace or freedom to give DeVere a try. You won't regret it!"
