Spence was recommended by PCRM...

When I first decided to do acupuncture before ivf I was not sure if it would help but thought I'm desperate so after reading up on the Internet along with the thousand other articles I read I decided it was worth a try. Spence was recommended by Pcrm and I wanted someone who worked with their team. My back story is that we had tried to have a baby for 3 years with 3 failed attempts with iui. We were only planning to do ivf 1 time (so we said but you never know) so I was willing to try anything. Going into I never expected to achieve the sense of serenity I had.

After being a long time Endometriosis sufferer...

After being a long time Endometriosis sufferer since my late teens I came to grips about my infertility issues after two major abdominal surgeries within one year. My husband and I had been trying to concieve for over 2 years. After my second surgery I was referred to Dr. Pentland for treatment before and while we were undergoing IVF treatments at PCRM. If only I had met him years ago!! Not only did he help with pain, bloating, fatigue, anxiety, his patient and kind ear was a wonderful bonus.

My back feels better and my libido is higher !

I have been a patient of Dr.Pentland's for the past 2 months. My weekly treatments are specific to lower back problems and infertility. These visits have been beneficial in helping me feel less stressed and more relaxed. I have noticed a dramatic decrease in my lower back pain with each visit. I have also noticed an increase in my libido since the start of my treatments. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who wants to find balance in their bodies whether it's back pain or infertility. Thank you Dr.Pentland

Would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Pentland...

"My main goal when I approached Dr. Pentland for acupuncture treatment was to help me with anxiety and stress relief following up to and including my IVF procedure. Both of these goals were met. Dr. Pentland has a very sincere, caring manner that is both professional and respectful. I was very much at ease with Dr. Pentland and was particularly impressed with how familiar he was with the IVF procedure. I have no idea whether acupuncture helped medically the IVF procedure work, but I'm pregnant now and that's all I really care about. I would enthusiastically recommend Dr.

鍼治療で約20年もあった生理痛が軽くなりました。 Pain is gone!

昨日から始まった生理の生理痛がとても軽くて驚いています。
1日~2日目はいつもはほぼ4時間おきに薬を切らさずといった感じでないと、生理痛が
ひどいのですが、昨日は3回の服用でした。しかも、今日は2日目にも関わらず、生理痛が無いので
本当に驚いています。生理痛が無い2日目なんて19歳の時以来です。

"After only second treatment with Junko, the menstrual pain has already been reduced a lot. Usually I need pain medication every 4 hours on day 1 and 2, I took only 3 times on day 1. I don't have any pain today on day 2. I've had this severe dysmenorrhea since I was 19!"

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!!

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.

Best IVF response after acupuncture

Thank you, Erin!! I can never thank you enough for believing in me when all my fertility doctors told me that donor eggs or adoption was my best chance of being a mom! I had my best response to IVF after working with you, now I’m pregnant, and I know that acupuncture and diet made the difference! God Bless!!

Recovery from repetitive stress injuries

I have been seeing Sean Quigley for about six months now. Before treatment with Sean, I was in constant pain from repetitive stress and injuries in my joints. I tried many alternatives to aid recovery of my hips and shoulders. From Bowen treatment to Chiropractic to Yoga, nothing seemed to give me lasting relief. As soon as I started seeing Sean, my symptoms began to disappear. It is now to the point where I can't remember the constant pain I once accepted to be a part of everyday life. Thank You so much Sean!

IVF support

I came to Sean for IVF Support during my medicated fertility cycle. Only one ovary was responding to the medication and the other was responding, but not as much as we had hoped. After two sessions to increase blood flow to my uterus my next ultrasound showed that BOTH ovaries were responding well and I had 18 mature follicles for egg harvesting. I could not be happier. I highly recommend him. He is very gentle & kind, and a great listener. I will use him for any future issues including during this pregnancy! i truely believe I owe this pregnancy to Dr.Quigley. Thank you so much!!

WE BELIEVE THAT OUR MIRACLE WILL HAPPEN

My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for five years. We tried many treatments including IUI without any progress. Since nothing worked for us so far, I started searching on the internet for other alternative treatments. Luckily, I have found Yinstill clinic and booked my first appointment. The first moment I walked into Dr. Spence’s clinic, I felt calm and relaxed. During my first appointment Dr. Spence listened carefully to us, and he prepared the treatment plan. Since that first meeting my life changed.
