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"

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!).

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.

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.

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.

I heard about Spence on Global News...

I heard about Spence on Global News and my husband and I had been trying to conceive for some time. When I first met Spence, I appreciated his honestly and frankness as well as his ability to adapt his approach to meet our specific needs and my personality traits. After our initial meeting with Spence, he drafted a comprehensive plan for treatment which included all aspects of my health and well-being including but not limited to, physical, psychological, emotional, dietary and cognitive. The plan was impressive and the implementation was seemless.

After 6 rounds of Clomid and a failed IVF cycle...

After 6 rounds of Clomid and a failed IVF cycle, I explored the option of IVF acupuncture for my second IVF cycle. Having acupuncture on my embryo transfer day gave me the confidence that my body and mind were at their epitome of relaxation. Also, having it done on site gave me the calming, positive and warm thoughts I was seeking for the moments leading up to my embryo transfer - and the relaxation right after. I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with twins. I truly believe Dr. Pentland's help has contributed to my success!

Acupuncture for headaches and pregnancy

Sean is such an incredible practitioner! I've seen him multiple times for acupuncture - one of which was while I was suffering form daily headaches during the beginning of my pregnancy. After one treatment with Sean, my headache went away completely! Plus his positive energy and humour is always welcome! Highly recommended as a fertility acupuncturist!!!

Thought I would give accupuncture a try

I found it to be relaxing and calmed me down a little. I was super nervous as not knowing what the outcome is going to be in a few weeks time especially since I have had treatment done many times and have been unsuccessful so thought I would give accupuncture a try as it is supposed to help with blood flow and all. Having the clinic onsite is great, helps decrease some of the stress of having to drive around to places and make it for the transfer on time.

Thank you so much to Dr Pentland he was great!

Support during Late Pregnancy

I had several acupuncture treatments with Sean while I was in my last two months of pregnancy. He was incredibly knowledgable and gentle. He asked a lot of questions about how I was feeling and in turn tried to release areas of discomfort. Overall a very positive experience. I will be back for my next pregnancy:)

If you are scared of needles go and see Sherry!

Sherry is an amazing acupuncturist and her knowledge of TCM is outstanding. She is very caring and always goes the extra mile for you. If anybody is scared of needles - go and see her.

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.

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.

My successful 'pregnancy achievement'

I would like to thank Spence for his stellar knowledge and support in my successful 'pregnancy achievement'. I am now 37 and 25 weeks happily pregnant with my first child. My partner and I had been trying to conceive for 5 months, when I visited the doctor, and started acupuncture. My feeling was that being 36, and never having been pregnant before, I needed a boost to help my fertility. I was starting to feel anxious, but hopeful that it wouldn't take too much help to get pregnant.

Fertility Help and Men's Health

Working with Sean and the Yinstill team has been transformational for my physical and mental health. I began my treatment journey with Yinstill to increase my fertility, which resulted in my wife and I conceiving a child (who is a very awesome little human being) and also helped with my overall health, too. In addition to enhancing my fertility, I rarely succumb to colds, sleep better than I should with a toddler in the house, and handle stress well, too.
