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.

Proud & Pregnant

After a long and frustrating journey with infertility I am proud to announce that I am 14 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby! My husband and I recently had the pleasure to see our angel baby on ultrasound and we were amazed to see the beautiful result of our endurance and resilience. We would not be at this settled place without the help of Dr. Spence Pentland.

An integral part of my health team!

I'm sure it helped in our success!

The entire experience was incredible. I highly recommend it. I really enjoyed talking with Dr Fisher about the process and learning from him. I found the treatments both before and after the transfer extremely relaxing and it was very convenient having it right next door to the OR. I'm sure it helped in our success!

PCOS: hypothalamic amenorrhea

I write you hereby a short description of “our story”. I imagine every couple’s story will be different, but still, the doubts and disappointments must be there for everyone, and I would be most glad to encourage those who have lost faith.

One of the most knowledgeable practitioners I have come across

I have seen Dr. Fisher for a number of issues and have always been very impressed with the results, as well as the process. Dr. Fisher is very genuine and attentive during the intake process and always makes me feel very comfortable and relaxed. He is always very thorough and takes that little bit of extra time gathering information to get to the root of the issue. I am very familiar with different types of alternative health care and Dr. Fisher is one of the most knowledgeable practitioners I have come across!

My acupuncture treatments for infertility, then pregnancy

My husband and I started to try to conceive when I was 35 and after 2 years of trying, we had no idea why I wasn’t getting pregnant. After being tested at the fertility clinic, we were told our infertility issues were “unexplained”. I had a friend who was going to acupuncture treatments for fertility issues too, and I asked her about it. Up until then, I had never even considered acupuncture for anything. I met Erin in June 2009 and upon meeting her, her personal and caring approach made me comfortable with giving it a try. Getting weekly treatments did so many things for me.

I would recommend this to anyone going through IVF

I can't say enough about how great it was to be able to have my transfer day acupuncture completed on site at PCRM. The environment created was so soothing that I was really able to relax and clear my head. I loved having the scented eye mask and listening to relaxing music with headphones to block out any noise. It was an added benefit that I was able to send Spence a quick e-mail when I was given my transfer date and I didn't have to worry about booking additional appointments. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend this to anyone going through IVF.

Invaluable part of both my IVF and first trimester journey

"Dr Pentland quickly became "Spence" such is his easy-to-be-around manner. He clearly has a passion for helping couple's achieve their goals, and that is, the successful birth of a wee monkey. Or in my case, a not so wee monkey. His optimism and expertise made him an invaluable part of both my IVF and first trimester journeys."

Twins! I would just like to share my acupuncture experience

I had been through one complete IVF failure: 24 eggs, but nothing to freeze, and no pregnancy. I decided to use acupuncture to support the second attempt at IVF. My husband and I had both felt something was missing from the first treatment, even before we knew it had failed. I am now in the late stages of pregnancy, carrying a set of what appears to be very robust, healthy twins, from two implanted embryos. I also have eighteen great quality embryos in storage, a complete turnaround from the first procedure, after a change of IVF clinic too.

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.

IVF is an incredibly stressful procedure and I always left your clinic feeling more relaxed

Hi Dr Pentland / Dr Fisher, I wanted to thank you both for the exceptional care you provided me those two weeks in Burnaby when I was going through IVF treatment. I feel that the care you both showed me was far above and beyond what I have ever experienced at an acupuncture clinic, and your concern for and treatment of the acute shoulder pain I was also experiencing at that time was truly appreciated. Your clinic is like a spa with the scented eye pillow, guided meditations, and cozy electric blanket!

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.
