Gentle and effective

Very professional! Erin was able to fit me into her tight schedule. I have been to a few acupuncturists and Erin was very gentle and very effective. I would highly recommend others to go see her, especially for girl stuff.

Profound satisfaction

I’ve had all kinds of massages from all types of practitioners. I’ve had deep tissue, soft tissue, Swedish, Thai, Ayurvedic – you name it. I’ve found all beneficial in their way, but each discipline has its limits and none were able to provide the treatment I needed. I was expecting a similar experience with Natalie. But my first session was a revelation. Natalie intuitively grasped the unique needs of my body. Her fluency in a wide range of approaches allowed her to synthesize different techniques in order to directly address my problems. The result: profound satisfaction.

Sherry was very welcoming and put my mind at ease.

I had never tried acupuncture before and I was a little nervous until I met with Sherry. She was very welcoming and put my mind at ease. She took a lot of time to talk to me to find out my desired outcome for treatments. I saw her for prenatal treatments to prepare my body for labour. I was afraid that I would go overdue since all the women in my family always went overdue. Sherry did a great job at treating me and I felt relaxing during our sessions. I ended up going into labour on my due date and had a problem free labour and delivery! I would recommend her to anyone!

Junko helped regulate my cycle and conceive!

I went to Yinstill and saw Junko weekly in an effort to regulate my hormones and cycles when my husband and I were trying to conceive. Her warm and professional demeanour made me feel comfortable from the start (important as I had never been to acupuncture before) and it was relieving to have someone to talk to along our fertility journey. Very quickly my cycles became more regular and within a few months I was pregnant! I continued seeing Junko for the first twelve weeks of my pregnancy and returned to see her at the end - even receiving a treatment as I was in early labour.

My FSH level was 16...I only had one egg retrieved

2 years after having my first child we started to try for a second baby. Since the first time it happened quickly and easily we assumed it would be the same again. After 7 months of trying (and because I was 39 years old) our doctor suggested we see a specialist at PCRM and start the process to see what was going on. After initial tests and consultation with Dr. Roberts at PCRM we received devastating news. My FSH level was 16 and we had less than a 5% change of becoming pregnant.

I recommend Erin for your first time acupuncture

Erin Flynn is a true professional and an incredibly caring person. I first started seeing her more than seven years ago to assist with stomach cramps, when she was still a student. After my first meeting with her I knew that it was an amazing gift that I had found her. Erin is so knowledgeable and a wonderful resource on issues, treatments and research related to women and all other health issues. Erin helped reduce my stomach pains and stress. She takes her time and really listens to your concerns and questions.

Dr Harris Fisher my testimony for such great treatment and care

Shortly after getting married in 2013, I had a miscarriage. I was 35 at the time and my husband and I were devastated — I became obsessed with motherhood. “My whole focus turned to getting pregnant. And every month that it didn’t happen, my obsession got worse.” After losing another baby at around 10 weeks, I was desperate. A trip to a fertility clinic with my husband, revealed that I had high levels of follicle-stimulating hormones and lower levels of Anti-Mullerian Hormones.

A long journey to success

My husband and I have just gone through an IVF cycle with an egg donor and we're now looking forward to an upcoming pregnancy test. Regardless of the outcome of that test, we are still a success story and we appreciate what Spence has done for us ...

The calming, stress free enviroment helped me relax

I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have had the onsite treatments, before and after my embryo transfer. The calming, stress free enviroment helped me relax before the transfer and my treatment after made me feel as though I had done everything I could in order to achieve success. Thank you Dr. Pentland for taking such wonderful care of me during this important time.

Stress relief during a very Stressful time

The acupuncture from Sean was great for stress relief during a very stressful time. I truly felt that it allowed me to experience total relaxation which I'm sure helped to bring about a positive result. The environment is calm and soothing and the staff are caring and professional. Would absolutely recommend.

20 YEAR JOURNEY COMPLETED!

Wow, I’m not sure where to begin, I think the title alone says a lot. I just wish I had learned about Spence a lot sooner. I first learnt of Spence from a flyer in the waiting room of the IVF office in the fall of 2008. At the time I was only days away from retrieval. This was technically our 2nd attempt at IVF but the first one was 10 years prior, it took us that long to muster up the courage and strength (emotionally) to give IVF another try. In the meantime we had tried numerous alternative therapies with no success, and also taken time off to enjoy life too.

Even the bathroom is so inspiring!

Yesterday was the first time I visited the washroom at Yinstill. The moment I open the door and began looking around at all the hopeful positive messages I felt at ease. Surrounded by others' struggles and stories of happiness calmed me in a lasting way. I felt so hopeful and optimistic.
Yinstill is such a beautiful place. Even the bathroom is so inspiring!

Warm and fuzzy,

Variety of Treatments

I have been seeing Sean for a variety of issues for the past 6 months and he consistently provides me with great care and attentiveness. I seem to always have something that I can work on in my acupuncture sessions that changes week to week and Sean is always very flexible with my treatment. He is very good at listening to my concerns and determining what is the most pressing issue at hand, while administering treatment that focuses on one main problem while targeting others along the way. I have seen a lot of practitioners in the past and I have been the most comfortable with Sean.
