Hello,
This is Sean from Yinstill. I just wanted to drop you a line to see how you are doing. Did the baby manage to turn with the moxibustion treatments? I hope you, baby and family are well.
Take care,
Sean

Hi Sean,
Yes, I think the moxibustion worked!
You and I started the 10-day treatment on a Tuesday, and the baby’s head was at 10 o’clock. By the next Tuesday, it was at 4 o’clock according to an ultrasound I had that day. My husband and I finished the last treatment on Thursday night – the day before we were scheduled for a version at the hospital. Friday morning, they did an ultrasound before performing the version, and the baby’s head was already down!!
Coincidence? Maybe, but maybe not. The timing seems pretty spectacularly synchronized to the moxibustion treatments.
Thank you so much!

I am a patient at Yinstill and my experience has been nothing but positive. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a few years now and were unsuccessful. After attending Yinstill and being treated by Junko, not only did I get the care and support I needed but she worked with me to achieve my goal! Yinstill works! And the best part is all the staff are so caring. I am currently pregnant with my first child and couldn’t be happier. All the tips and treatments that was provided helped so much in terms of fertility to make this possible and I owe the credit to Yinstill!
Thank you so very much for helping me through this journey! I look forward to seeing you guys closer to my due date!

I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Fisher. He is very personable and immediately made me feel at ease. My first acupuncture visit with him was when I was pregnant full-term with my first child. My contractions started the morning after my appointment and I had an uncomplicated labour and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. I returned to Dr. Fisher about a year and a half later to address postpartum issues with the goal of becoming physically healthy and strong again to try for a second pregnancy. We quickly re-established our rapport and my visits were relaxing and restorative. He successfully treated my ailments, having insight that other caregivers had not considered and I became pregnant naturally with my second child. This time Dr. Fisher supported me throughout my pregnancy from beginning to end so I had the benefit of alleviated pregnancy discomforts from nausea, joint/back pain and frequent sinus issues. My second baby boy was born after another fast and uncomplicated labour. Dr. Fisher is a natural healer, is very genuine, and takes extra time to address concerns and provide valuable advice even outside of acupuncture. This includes everything from healthy family recipes, to tips for activities with my son to even must see spots in Hawaii. Dr. Fisher is exceptional and he has my very highest recommendation.

On the eve of the birth of my first child, I find it important to reflect and give gratitude to the people who played an intricate part of my success. I first came to Yinstill on August 12th, 2013 after a laproscopy and miscarriage. I had been told that, at 37, I had little to no chance of successfully carrying a baby to term because of low egg quality and quantity. Needless to say, I was crushed but decided to give IVF and acupuncture a try regardless of the odds.

My first visit with Dr Spence Pentland was full of nerves and ambiguity. I knew I had nothing to lose but could never have imagined how valuable and crucial my treatment over the the next few years would be. He put me immediately at ease, and in my first session, despite a fear of needles, I felt as if I had already let go of something. It’s hard to explain, but I came home feeling rejuvenated. My first IVF worked, despite all the medical statistics stacked against us.

Dr Pentland saw me through two more IVF retrievals as I banked what eggs I could. Each one of those was more successful then the last, with better quality and higher numbers. It truly was a miracle given my diagnosis of having no chance.

Dr Pentland listened intently to my fears, offered the best counsel and cared for me with a deep compassion I did not receive from other members of my infertility journey. He was instrumental in helping me not only stay focused but also remain positive in the face of great diversity. Acupuncture I absolutely attribute to my continuous success.

On my fourth retrieval we decided to do a fresh transfer. It was also at this time that I met Junko as Dr Pentland went away on leave. I was reluctant to pass my care on to someone else, but found Junko to be equally as capable in her abilities and in her compassion for my situation.

After the first transfer failed, I broke down, completely devastated. Perhaps all the doctors were right and this whole venture was fruitless. If not for Junko, I would have given up. Not only with words of encouragement, but also with a reminder that although it didn’t likely make sense right then, I was exactly where I was supposed to be. I’ll never forget the warmth I felt that day and the words that carried me back from a deep darkness, and will forever be indebted.

Ironically, three weeks later and one week before my 40th birthday, I discovered I had become pregnant naturally. I continued to visit Junko through the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy to help baby stay with us. I have now seen Junko in these final days for inducement and after each appointment felt amazingly relaxed. I’m entering into labour and delivery feeling strong and confident thanks to her.

To say that the care and services of the staff at Yinstill were paramount to my success would be an understatement. They are like a family. And while it might take a village to raise a child, in my case it took this family to make one.

Dr. Pentland and the entire Yinstill staff have incredibly supportive during our journey to conceive. Having a lot of troubles conceiving in the past to major medical problems, we were resolved to a life without bearing children. Discovering TCM and Dr. Pentland opened our eyes to more than just traditional western medicine. Even after our first failed IVF attempt, Dr. Pentland gave us an ear to listen and the support we desperately needed. He convinced us to start a new treatment plan in preparation for a second IVF cycle. A year later full of treatments and positive vibes, not only we were we able to conceive but with twins! We continued with Dr. Pentland’s treatment as we had a high risk pregnancy. I am proud to say we have given birth to a healthy son and daughter! Dr. Pentland and the entire Yinstill staff played a major role in our little miracles and we are forever grateful for their clinic and doctors! We have recommended many of our friends to Yinstill and they are excited to go in based on our own success!

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.
My first appointment I met Sean Quigley, he is a registered acupuncturist. He made me feel comfortable and not worried. I was amazed at the results, and within the first two sessions of acupuncture I was achieving erections without any pills!! I am so grateful to Sean and Yinstill.
Thank you so much

Dear Junko,

It is 2 days less the year that you were giving me my final accupuncture treatments that resulted in my miracle boy. Jesse was born August 18th and I am sure the accupuncture made a huge difference to this success. He is the light of our lives and we love him more than we could have ever imagined.

We will be in touch soon as are hoping to give Jesse a brother or sister in May or June.

Happy holidays and we can never repay you for the kindness and support that gave us the best gift in the entire world.

Working with Sean and the Yinstill team has been transformational for my physical and mental health. I began my treatment journey with Yinstill to increase my fertility, which resulted in my wife and I conceiving a child (who is a very awesome little human being) and also helped with my overall health, too. In addition to enhancing my fertility, I rarely succumb to colds, sleep better than I should with a toddler in the house, and handle stress well, too. The outcomes of my experience with Sean and the Yinstill team have been overwhelmingly positive and I highly recommend their services for men who have questions about how to enhance fertility as well as people who simply want to increase their overall health and live a more mindful life.
