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.

When I first went to be treated for infertility I had my reservations

Western medical science cannot solve my specific problem and I thought that Traditional Chinese Medicine was an esoteric last ditch effort in a fight against the unknown. Fortunately enough, I came into contact with Spence Pentland.

Hi there! I have a story to share...

My husband (age 38) and I (age 36) tried to get pregnant for one year - which isn't that long, really, but when you want something badly, any amount of time can be frustrating. I know firsthand how much it sucks to get your period and then wait another month and so on...

Another Huge Fan !

After some time trying to conceive, I became concerned that my body was somehow subtly out of balance. According to western medical methods, everything was completely "normal", but I had an inkling that my IBS and the years I had spent overseas working in a stressful environment had taken a toll on my body.

Acupuncture and Men's Health

Hi, my name is Gianni, I'm 49 years old and had been struggling with erectile disfunction since the age of 40. I was prescribed Cialis and Viagra at different times and continued taking them on and off. I had tried to speak to different doctors about my situation and about different options for treatment, the answer was always the same........take this pill, it will help!......
I got tired and frustrated and began to look into alternative medicines. This is when I found Yinstill clinic on Main st. in Vancouver.

Grace Made A Huge Difference in Our Marriage

Grace made a huge difference in our marriage. Her therapeutic approach is very productive at resolving difficult issues and teaching us to talk to our partners and feel connected. I feel much more confident in my relationship and have more compassion for myself and my partner. We are extremely lucky and grateful to have found Grace. Highly recommend!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thin Uterine Lining

I was only 3 days away from embryo transfer (IVF with donor egg) when my doctor discovered that my body was not reacting as he had hoped to the estrogen, therefore, the lining of my uterus was not as thick as it should be for implantation. He suggested I have acupuncture to bring more blood blow to my uterus, hoping to increase the lining. I found Spence on the internet and he knew exactly what to do. With only time for 2 treatments, we hoped for the best.

When my doctor scanned my uterus, he said my lining had improved by 75-100%!

Relief from Back Pain and Shoulder Tension

I have been seeing Sean for acupuncture and massage for several years. He has successfully relieved pain and tension in my upper back and shoulders, as well as addressing any other health issues as they arise. Sean is punctual, professional and always listens to my concerns to best figure out a solution to help me move forward - highly recommended.

The Roller Coaster

For me, the infertility roller coaster started on Day 1 of every cycle....the anticipation of timing things perfectly, the agonizing two week wait and the knife in my heart when I knew I wasn't pregnant...again and again and again and again. Through all of this, Spence and Raeghan and Lorne brought a healing touch to my treatments. Even while they were prescribing vile Chinese herbs to drink, it felt wonderful to be in their care. They treated me as a whole person and not just my reproductive system.

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.
