I implicitly trust her wisdom and approach

Reflecting on my experience and interactions with Julie as my acupuncturist, I implicitly trust her wisdom and approach to supporting my sense of well-being. As part of my regular visits, I appreciate Julie’s very intuitive presence and approach to what I may need at any given moment, incorporating whatever I share into each treatment I receive.

migraines during pregnancy

I've been coming to Yinstill for a few months now (during my first trimester) for migraines. When you walk in, there is such a calm and relaxing atmosphere that even my husband has commented on it! Everyone from the staff (Sarah and Claire) to Junko who has been treating me have been so kind and helpful. I can't recommend Junko enough as she always listens to any concerns that I may have and even sends me recipes that will help after my pregnancy is over. I never would have thought acupuncture would help but amazingly I truly believe it has.

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.

PCOS: Pregnant the natural way

My husband and I started trying to conceive in January of 2006. Because of my having PCOS, we had already seen an infertility specialist at Genesis. I wasn’t ovulating as I hadn’t had a natural period in over a decade. My doctor started me on clomid right away. After about six months of trying and having no success, I heard of acupuncture through a friend. I decided to give it a try and met with Spence. Aside from receiving the acupuncture treatments, it was really nice to be able to discuss my infertility frustrations with someone so knowledgeable.

Sean Supports IVF process

I met Sean after being referred to Yinstill for my first acupuncture treatment in conjunction with my IVF treatments at PCRM. I had never imagined how good acupuncture would make me feel until I experienced it with Sean. I first met him and I had a very instant feeling of comfort, ease and trust. He is very down to earth, easy to talk to and is very sensitive to my issues as related to infertility. He catered my treatment alongside my IVF treatments and was heartfelt and caring as each visit progressed. After my first treatment with Sean, I was blown away by how I felt.

I Owe Part of Her "Being" to Dr. Spence

My baby making journey started after not getting pregnant for a year on my own without any contraception. I had always had a cycle that was erratic. When i mentioned this to my neighbour, she told me that she had sent two of her friends who were having the same problem to see Dr. Spence and within two months, they were both pregnant. I wanted to try something more natural and it didn't take long for me to call and book my first appointment.

Forever grateful for the chance encounter that day

A chance conversation between my wife and a new mother first brought us to Dr. Pentland. The new mom had a beautiful baby with her, but told us she'd sadly lost her first when five months pregnant. Thereafter, she began seeing Dr. Pentland; the result was sleeping in her arms. At the time, my wife and I were recovering from the shock of our own miscarriage and trying to get pregnant again.

Healthy Baby Boy!

Before visiting Spence, I felt so alone, frustrated, disappointed and sad every month when my cycle would start yet again. Almost all my friends, family and close co-workers were pregnant / having babies. I was surrounded by all these lucky people who didn't have any problems conceiving so it was hard to find someone to talk to who really understood the ups and downs of what I was going through. I appreciated friends listening to me, but it wasn’t the same as being able to relate to someone who had experienced the same issues.

Gentle care, from IVF transfer day and throughout my pregnancy

I began seeing Harris in August of 2012 while undergoing IVF. I knew immediately upon meeting him that he would help me in my fertility journey. I am certain that his treatments helped me become and stay pregnant, something I was beginning to think would never happen. Not only does Harris go above and beyond in terms of gentle care during acupuncture treatments, but he also takes as much time as you need to discuss your concerns, answer questions, and give you pertinent information.

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.

Gratitude

I appreciate your time with the holistic support I received over the winter and spring. Having someone listen me as I debrief each week has helped too. I haven't been to a clinic like Yinstill where it's warm, welcoming and very supportive. Thanks to you and your team for all you do in supporting my health. Just wanted to share my thoughts in how you all make a difference for me weekly.

Unexplained pelvic pain and lower back pain relieved and a second child conceived

I was experiencing unexplained pelvic and lower back pain, for which my doctor referred me to a specialist...thinking it might be endometriosis. Dissatisfied that I would have to wait several months for an appointment and might only have surgery as an option, I went searching for alternative treatment. I came across Yinstill in my search and their response was immediate. I started acupuncture treatment with Dr Fisher, along with his suggestion of Chinese medicine and within two weeks my pain was barely noticeable. After months of suffering, I finally felt like myself again.

After my third pregnancy loss...

"After my third pregnancy loss I wondered if I would ever be able to have a baby. With the latest of the losses being in the second trimester I was heart broken and scared for what the future may hold. I had never thought that the path to becoming a mother would be so difficult and heart breaking. I started acupuncture in the months that followed and met Spence at that time. Being at acupuncture and working with Spence brought me a sense of calmness and offered an additional support as I continued on the journey to parenthood.

Acupuncture helped me finally conceive!

"I absolutely believe acupuncture was what helped me finally conceive. Dr Flynn has excellent bedside manner, a kind and Patient demeanor, and never let me give up on my body's ability to bear a child. I would recommend your clinic 100%. "
