Regular Treatments are Beneficial

I've been receiving acupuncture form Sean on a regular basis for over a year now. He's professional, curious, and accommodating. He asks relevant questions. He clearly communicates how he plans to fix me, but is careful to make sure I agree with the approach. The clinic itself also has a warm feel to it. Highly recommended.

RMT Making my Pregnancy More Comfortable

I started receiving massages from Natalie in my second trimester and continued to see her every other week throughout the rest of my pregnancy. She was so good and helpful that I upgraded to weekly massages. Natalie took time to assess my body and its changes and ask about areas of concern that needed attention for that session. Each treatment, she worked on my entire body, while focusing special attention and time to the tender areas, so I always left feelings thoroughly satisfied (but wanting more!).

Not only did we achieve pregnancy and the birth of our beloved baby girl, we learned much about our health, wellness, and life along the way

We had a wonderful experience at Yinstill with Dr. Harris Fisher. Yinstill is a peaceful oasis with staff who greet you warmly at the front door. Dr. Fisher provided acupuncture and so much more on our long journey to parenthood. He is extremely knowledgeable, empathetic, supportive, and ever positive. He meets you where you are, without judgement, and provides care that is perfectly suited to your needs, both physical and emotional. With Dr.

Best bathroom break ever...

It’s hard to believe I am actually writing this email...but we are really REALLY excited to share that we are expecting a baby!! After nearly three years of waiting and hoping and praying (along with some struggling and crying and pounding our heads against walls), L was finally able to pee on the stick and see a positive result! Best bathroom break EVER.

I do not believe I would have my twins if it were not for Spence and his team!

When I was diagnosed with fertility issues and given only a 10-20% chance of having a baby even with IVF, I was in complete despair. I felt helpless, scared, and hopeless. I was fortunate that a good friend had been through IVF and recommended seeing Spence. It was great advice!

Very important to be comfortable on embryo transfer day

When I first heard about a new acupuncture service on site at PCRM, I was so glad because of a convenience. I had a really great relaxing experience on the day of embryo transfer. In my opinion, it is very important to be comfortable on this day of treatment. I was surprised of the calm environment: warm bed and blanket, pleasant scent of essential oils and relaxing meditation.

Many thanks to Dr. Spence Pentland.

Relief from Back Pain and Shoulder Tension

I have been seeing Sean for acupuncture and massage for several years.

Sean is punctual, professional and always listens to my concerns to best figure out a solution to help me move forward - highly recommended.

Abdominal massage

"I've never had abdominal massage before so at first I thought was a little weird, but the effects are so beneficial that I'm going to ask for my tummy to be massaged every time"

Thin Uterine Lining

I was only 3 days away from embryo transfer (IVF with donor egg) when my doctor discovered that my body was not reacting as he had hoped to the estrogen, therefore, the lining of my uterus was not as thick as it should be for implantation. He suggested I have acupuncture to bring more blood blow to my uterus, hoping to increase the lining. I found Spence on the internet and he knew exactly what to do. With only time for 2 treatments, we hoped for the best.

When my doctor scanned my uterus, he said my lining had improved by 75-100%!

The clinic and care you will receive is the most patient-centred, warm, and empathetic I have ever encountered

My husband and I went to Yinstill for treatment during our fertility journey (including IUI and IVF). As a physician myself trained in Western medicine, I sought out acupuncture with the mindset that it would enhance our fertility and compliment the fertility clinic treatments. What we found, was a complete surprise; under the care of Dr. Harris Fisher, we were supported in the most wholistic way possible. Dr. Fisher is an extremely kind, astute practitioner and his emotional support was exceedingly valuable.

Even the bathroom is so inspiring!

Yesterday was the first time I visited the washroom at Yinstill. The moment I open the door and began looking around at all the hopeful positive messages I felt at ease. Surrounded by others' struggles and stories of happiness calmed me in a lasting way. I felt so hopeful and optimistic.
Yinstill is such a beautiful place. Even the bathroom is so inspiring!

Warm and fuzzy,

I am very grateful for Harris' expertise...

Harris helped improve my health with a treatment of Chinese herbs. It worked wonderfully. I had tried many other things but the Chinese herbs were really effective! I am very grateful for Harris' expertise in this situation. - S.F.

Dr. Flynn helped us on our journey to parenthood

I have been a patient of Dr. Erin Flynn’s for over four years. A friend recommended acupuncture as I have PCOS and was having a hard time getting pregnant, and I thought “why not”? A quick Google search led me to a clinic specializing in fertility and my instant love of acupuncture was born.

Help with Restless Leg Syndrome

Thoughtful and welcoming: Restless legs at night had been driving me crazy for months, when I finally decided to try acupuncture. My first time, so naturally i was apprehensive. So impressed that Sean took time to research issue and offer some great insights (an iron test) that my family doctor never suggested. He was right about the iron, and I could definitely changes in energy in my over-stimulated legs and mind. He was also non-judge-y about suggesting lifestyle changes. Every appointment was very relaxing, and after 5 sessions over a month, no more restless legs!!
