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

Very important to be comfortable on embryo transfer day

When I first heard about a new acupuncture service on site at PCRM, I was so glad because of a convenience. I had a really great relaxing experience on the day of embryo transfer. In my opinion, it is very important to be comfortable on this day of treatment. I was surprised of the calm environment: warm bed and blanket, pleasant scent of essential oils and relaxing meditation.

Many thanks to Dr. Spence Pentland.

Regular Treatments are Beneficial

I've been receiving acupuncture form Sean on a regular basis for over a year now. He's professional, curious, and accommodating. He asks relevant questions. He clearly communicates how he plans to fix me, but is careful to make sure I agree with the approach. The clinic itself also has a warm feel to it. Highly recommended.

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!!

After 2 Miscarriages...

After two early miscarriages and almost two years of trying for a successful pregnancy with no identifiable reason for our troubles, we decided to look into IVF and happened to come across the website for Spence. I decided to try acupuncture and herbal teas as way of preparing for IVF. I enjoyed my weekly treatments, in part for the opportunity to simply relax and take some time for myself. After all the frustration and disappointment of the previous two years, it was nice to have hope again and a sense of well being from taking care of myself.

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!).

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.

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.

Injured in an auto accident

I was injured in auto accident prior to this trip. I was experiencing pain in upper and lower back with pain and great amount of stiffness in my neck. Upon 3 treatments of acupuncture I had increased my range of motion in my neck and greatly reduced pain in upper and lower back areas.

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.

Worth the drive from Abbotsford

Thanks for being an awesome Dr... You always take the time to listen to my concerns. It's worth the drive from Abby ~ Nina
