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.
My husband and I went to Yinstill for treatment during our fertility journey (including IUI and IVF). As a physician myself trained in Western medicine, I sought out acupuncture with the mindset that it would enhance our fertility and compliment the fertility clinic treatments. What we found, was a complete surprise; under the care of Dr. Harris Fisher, we were supported in the most wholistic way possible. Dr. Fisher is an extremely kind, astute practitioner and his emotional support was exceedingly valuable. The care he provided was creative and touched all aspects of our lives: sleep, nutrition, exercise, relationships, stress management, work-life balance…and the list goes on. Fertility treatments can be very stressful and can impact many areas of your life; Dr. Fisher was an endless source of positivity, blended perfectly with practicality. Due to his care and the acupuncture, my body physically handled the fertility treatments well, and his over all treatment plan really helped us make our way through. We’ve yet to birth our beautiful little baby, but we are well on our way (second trimester!) and I know that I will continue to access Yinstill’s service for labour prep and for any future needs. The clinic and care you will receive is the most patient-centred, warm, and empathetic I have ever encountered. With gratitude.
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. I truly believe that this last treatment helped me have such a smooth and fast delivery. My husband saw her for a while as well and we both cannot recommend Junko enough!
The front desk staff was always very warm and welcoming and the ambience of the studio itself is very calming. From the moment you walk in off of the hustle and bustle of Main Street you feel at peace, relaxed, and in good hands. Thank you for listening to our concerns Yinstill when Western medicine wouldn’t discuss our fertility until we had hit the one year mark without success!
We had a wonderful experience at Yinstill with Dr. Harris Fisher. Yinstill is a peaceful oasis with staff who greet you warmly at the front door. Dr. Fisher provided acupuncture and so much more on our long journey to parenthood. He is extremely knowledgeable, empathetic, supportive, and ever positive. He meets you where you are, without judgement, and provides care that is perfectly suited to your needs, both physical and emotional. With Dr. Fisher’s gentle guidance and care, not only did we achieve pregnancy and the birth of our beloved baby girl, we learned much about our health, wellness, and life along the way.
All the best,
Sean’s lighthearted energy and gentle needling always have me feeling relaxed and receptive for treatment. I find myself smiling during our interactions. He’s very thorough and is always curious about how to support my cycle through acupuncture. He holds space in a way that is comfortable, inviting, and light. I always feel great after my sessions with Sean!
Sean is an excellent practitioner with a lovely friendly disposition. He always makes you feel lighter with his effortless warmth. I believe he has a true gift for helping to inspire people on a path of holistic wellness in a real and down to earth way. He is very skilled at working with injuries as well, as he helped my partner overcome several long-term sports injuries. I would recommend him to anyone suffering with chronic pain or injury, or those who want to get their health in better balance.
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!!!
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. He has a way of ease about him, and is lighthearted, humorous and kind.
Sean was wonderful with my care of my needs while I was pregnant and wanting to ensure a healthy and safe pregnancy and of course a safe delivery. Thanks for everything Sean. Baby Liv is also grateful! 😉
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. I immediately called my husband excited to share with him how I felt and encouraged him to visit Sean to have acupuncture. He agreed and walked out of Sean’s office with the comment “he’s quite the miracle worker.” When he thanked Sean I knew he had the same experience I had. We both still think fondly of our experience and can’t wait to return to Vancouver to continue acupuncture with Sean. His treatments were the highlight of my IVF and to look back, was the only thing that grounded me in the very anxiety driven IVF environment. I would recommend to any woman going through IVF to book in with Sean as much as you practically can during the process. I went twice a week and it was incredible. Thank you Sean, you truly are amazing at what you do.
