Imago Helped Us Grow as a Couple

Grace has helped us come to a deeper understanding of ourselves through a process where we are integral to each other's progress. The Imago method has been powerful in helping us grow together as individuals and, more importantly, as a couple.

By the end of that day, my arm was back to normal...

I strained my arm muscle exercising and through various aggressive movements. It was so uncomfortable and sore, it was distracting me from my work, and I couldn’t lift anything. I received one treatment of acupuncture from Julie Shillabeer, of Acucare Acupuncture. The next morning, my arm felt significantly better, and by the end of that day, my arm was back to normal. Julie’s calm presence, professionalism, and competence helped me feel better quickly and effectively. Thanks Julie!

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.

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%!

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.

I'm healthier, happier and more informed than ever

I had three great acupuncture treatments with Harris that were informative, attune and relaxing. I was given great advice. Sometimes when you decide to be healthier the Universe will align you with those people who will assist you in that transformation. I'm healthier, happier and more informed than ever. Thanks Harris! - J.P.

I truly felt like Spence understood what I was going through

In the summer of 2012, my husband and I embarked on the IVF journey; a potentially stressful experience, which is both expensive and emotional, with no guarantee of success. I had read positive research that supported acupuncture in combination with IVF. Because we were spending so much money on IVF, we wanted to do everything we could in our power to help make this work! Having tried acupuncture in the past, I wanted someone who was familiar with fertility issues. Since I was going to PCRM for my IVF treatment, I decided to meet with Dr.

Time to let the embryo "snuggle in"

I personally didn't enjoy the pre treatment, but only because I was so anxious about the embryo transfer that I found that I couldn't relax. However I was thankful for the treatment after the transfer. Because it was onsite, it was only a few feet a way, which meant more time to let the embryo "snuggle in". It greatly helped to relieve all the tension that I felt leading upto the transfer. Dr. Pentland was of course (and still is) a good sounding board and offered some great advice for the day of the transfer

Healthy Baby Girl !

I received acupuncture in the late Spring of 2008 at your centre in an attempt to conceive my first child. I wanted to let all of the wonderful staff know that I successfully conceived in June and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in February 2009. Thank-you to all of the practitioners for helping make my dream come true. In particular I would like to thank the staff that treated me in my journey, Alda, Raeghan, Spence and Ryan. All of you were incredibly professional, compassionate and skilled in treating me and you all made my journey in trying to conceive much less stressful.

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"

Help With Fertility

I’ve been seeing Sean for about 5 months now to help with fertility. It has been a really great experience working with Sean. He is a great listener and an excellent practitioner and I think that working with him has been pivotal in helping us get pregnant. Whether it is practical advice or tips, or encouraging words combined with the acupuncture, it has been a truly positive experience and I don’t think I would be at this place now without him. I’d highly recommend getting treatment from Sean.

Yinstill works!

I am a patient at Yinstill and my experience has been nothing but positive. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a few years now and were unsuccessful. After attending Yinstill and being treated by Junko, not only did I get the care and support I needed but she worked with me to achieve my goal! Yinstill works! And the best part is all the staff are so caring. I am currently pregnant with my first child and couldn't be happier. All the tips and treatments that was provided helped so much in terms of fertility to make this possible and I owe the credit to Yinstill!

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.

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.
