Testimonials

Hi there! I have a story to share...

My husband (age 38) and I (age 36) tried to get pregnant for one year - which isn't that long, really, but when you want something badly, any amount of time can be frustrating. I know firsthand how much it sucks to get your period and then wait another month and so on...

I travelled a long road

My infertility nightmare started almost 3 years ago when my husband and I started trying to conceive, I was 36 at the time. After 7 months I became pregnant but unfortunately lost the pregnancy at 6 weeks. The months following my miscarriage are a very black time in my life. I grieved our loss and became increasingly depressed due to our inability to conceive and maintain a pregnancy. (I had chemical pregnancies following the first miscarriage).

I wanted to prevent another miscarriage

I came to Erin as I had experience with miscarriage in the past, and wanted to do everything I could to keep this pregnancy. From herbal remedies to traditional acupuncture treatments, Erin helped calm my worries and educate me on numerous practices. The biggest difference I found from Western medicine was that Erin had time to hear my concerns, and created a treatment plan just for me. She listened and worked with me to overcome every symptom I was experiencing as my pregnancy progressed.

I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Fisher

I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Fisher. He is very personable and immediately made me feel at ease. My first acupuncture visit with him was when I was pregnant full-term with my first child. My contractions started the morning after my appointment and I had an uncomplicated labour and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. I returned to Dr. Fisher about a year and a half later to address postpartum issues with the goal of becoming physically healthy and strong again to try for a second pregnancy. We quickly re-established our rapport and my visits were relaxing and restorative.

Forever grateful for their clinic and doctors!

Dr. Pentland and the entire Yinstill staff have incredibly supportive during our journey to conceive. Having a lot of troubles conceiving in the past to major medical problems, we were resolved to a life without bearing children. Discovering TCM and Dr. Pentland opened our eyes to more than just traditional western medicine. Even after our first failed IVF attempt, Dr. Pentland gave us an ear to listen and the support we desperately needed. He convinced us to start a new treatment plan in preparation for a second IVF cycle.

Acupuncture and Men's Health

Hi, my name is Gianni, I'm 49 years old and had been struggling with erectile disfunction since the age of 40. I was prescribed Cialis and Viagra at different times and continued taking them on and off. I had tried to speak to different doctors about my situation and about different options for treatment, the answer was always the same........take this pill, it will help!......
I got tired and frustrated and began to look into alternative medicines. This is when I found Yinstill clinic on Main st. in Vancouver.

Unexplained infertility and several unsucessful IVFs

My husband and I decided to have a child when I was 30. We stopped BCP, but nothing happened! After 7 months of trying we went to see the doctor and she did all possible tests, which came back completely normal. The following 6 years we did not use any birth control and I got pregnant 3 times - all miscarriages. Fertility clinics labeled me with "unexplained infertility". At age 36 we tried a few IUI - no result. We moved on to IVF.

Invaluable part of both my IVF and first trimester journey

"Dr Pentland quickly became "Spence" such is his easy-to-be-around manner. He clearly has a passion for helping couple's achieve their goals, and that is, the successful birth of a wee monkey. Or in my case, a not so wee monkey. His optimism and expertise made him an invaluable part of both my IVF and first trimester journeys."

Something that we thought might never happen for us...

Dear Spence::
This note is long overdue. I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for all the great work you do each and every day. Your day doesn't just stop when the office door closes or when the weekend shows up on the calendar. If needed you will provide support beyond those business hours and beyond your professional duty. And I'm very happy that we got to meet you and benefit from your wonderful care.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to lose weight

Wanting to lose weight, I had 10 treatments and slept through most of them. I immediately felt energized and never hungry. I lost 2.5 kilograms and never skipped a meal! Julie is always highly professional, a great teacher and has a warm personality. I recommend this to anyone who wants to lose weight. It is painless!

Throughout our fertility journey, Dr. Fisher helped immensely

I first met with Dr. Fisher after my husband and I decided to embark on the parenthood journey. He was incredibly professional and courteous, administering gentle acupuncture treatments (it was my first time receiving acupuncture), as well as providing a wealth of knowledge on the topics of improving my and my partner's fertility. Once pregnant, he helped us by not only providing a session to teach us acupressure points for labour pain but also providing a final acupuncture session for labour induction so that I did not have to receive synthetic hormones. Throughout our journey, Dr.

I can't even describe what an incredible experience I had with Spence, both in terms of the person, and the treatment I received

He came very highly recommended to help deal with an fertility problem my wife and I were having and quickly morphed into a total body and mind experience. I felt so incredible after each treatment, I found myself looking forward to going back (which isn't how I usually feel about going to doctors). Amazingly, after just a few treatments, my wife and I got pregnant!! Even without that happening, I recommend Spence to everybody I know, being pregnant is the icing on the cake. Run, don't walk to see him.

treatments that resulted in my miracle boy

Dear Junko,

It is 2 days less the year that you were giving me my final accupuncture treatments that resulted in my miracle boy. Jesse was born August 18th and I am sure the accupuncture made a huge difference to this success. He is the light of our lives and we love him more than we could have ever imagined.

We will be in touch soon as are hoping to give Jesse a brother or sister in May or June.

Happy holidays and we can never repay you for the kindness and support that gave us the best gift in the entire world.

Jennifier, Ken and Jesse Hammell-Bouchie
