Unexplained pelvic pain and lower back pain relieved and a second child conceived

I was experiencing unexplained pelvic and lower back pain, for which my doctor referred me to a specialist…thinking it might be endometriosis. Dissatisfied that I would have to wait several months for an appointment and might only have surgery as an option, I went searching for alternative treatment. I came across Yinstill in my search and their response was immediate. I started acupuncture treatment with Dr Fisher, along with his suggestion of Chinese medicine and within two weeks my pain was barely noticeable. After months of suffering, I finally felt like myself again. And within a month of regular treatment, I was pregnant with my second child! I continued with prenatal treatment and plan to return in the postpartum phase. The support I received throughout my treatment was amazing! I would recommend Dr Fisher and Yinstill to anyone!!

Yesterday was the first time I visited the washroom at Yinstill. The moment I open the door and began looking around at all the hopeful positive messages I felt at ease. Surrounded by others’ struggles and stories of happiness calmed me in a lasting way. I felt so hopeful and optimistic.
Yinstill is such a beautiful place. Even the bathroom is so inspiring!

Warm and fuzzy,

RMT Making my Pregnancy More Comfortable

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!). She checks in to make sure the pressure is the right fit your comfort and uses enough force to alleviate the sore areas. Her energy is calming, therapeutic, and warm, and she carries herself with the utmost professionalism.

An hour with Natalie is something everyone needs in their life, to alleviate stress, focus on self-care, and relax. Natalie is not only an excellent RMT, she is a genuinely good person. This contributes to her competency and credibility as an RMT – she is a role model for self-care, healthy living, and loving your body. Thank you, Natalie, for making my pregnancy more comfortable. Each treatment caused my life and daily functioning to be so much better!

Massage Energy work that relieves dizziness and fatigue

I want to say thank you with all my heart for the treatment you gave me.

I was suffering from extreme dizziness and unusual fatigue and weakness due to side effect of antibiotics, for about three weeks. Before I came for the treatment that you suggested I was functioning at 50% (which is not good at all). After one hour treatment from you, within half an hour that same evening, I felt different (meaning I was functioning at 95% somewhat normally and able to take care of my grandson and play with him). What you did for me was miraculous, just two treatments and I am at 100%.

I also want to say that every time I have come in for a massage treatment, I have walked out healed. Thank you so much Natalie Woodhouse. I highly recommend your services. You truly have angel hands. May your spirit touch everyone. Thank you.

Just wanted to pass along some positive feedback to Dr.Fisher.

After my Tuesday morning session I felt fantastic all day! Hard to pinpoint exactly, but happy, calm and productive.
Also for the first time in 20 years I have yet to take Advil with my menstruation. I usually have to take 2-6 advil to get me through the first day but not this time:)

Thank you!

After my third pregnancy loss…

After my third pregnancy loss…

“After my third pregnancy loss I wondered if I would ever be able to have a baby. With the latest of the losses being in the second trimester I was heart broken and scared for what the future may hold. I had never thought that the path to becoming a mother would be so difficult and heart breaking. I started acupuncture in the months that followed and met Spence at that time. Being at acupuncture and working with Spence brought me a sense of calmness and offered an additional support as I continued on the journey to parenthood. It all started three years ago and since that first appointment I have been blessed with two beautiful, perfect baby boys. Seeing my two year old hold his baby brother brings me such happiness. I truly believe that acupuncture and the help I received from Spence was instrumental in making my dreams come true. Words are not enough but all I can say is THANK YOU!”

After suffering 3 miscarriages…

After suffering 3 miscarriages…

I came to see Dr. Pentland at the recommendation of a friend, after suffering 3 miscarriages. I was at the lowest point in my life and feeling very depressed and pessimistic about the future. At the very first meeting, Dr. Pentland made me feel at ease and gave me hope. He listened to me with complete attention as I cried and told him my history. Dr. Pentland was always calm, soothing and optimistic.

I had never had any acupuncture done prior to seeing Dr. Pentland. In fact, I was a little skeptical about alternative therapies. But I found that with the very first visit, I left feeling lighter, happier and most importantly…more at peace. Dr. Pentland helped me feel more connected with my body and as I was still grieving the last pregnancy I lost at 16 weeks, he supported me as I worked through so many emotions and personal turmoil. Dr. Pentland helped my body recover from the previous trauma and restored the inner balance that I needed.

I know with absolute certainty that without the healing work of Dr. Pentland through my visits, I wouldn’t be typing this as I watch my beautiful 6 month old daughter, playing beside me. I would not hesitate recommending anyone to see Dr. Pentland and Yinstill Reproductive Wellness.

Gentle care, from IVF transfer day and throughout my pregnancy

Gentle care, from IVF transfer day and throughout my pregnancy

I began seeing Harris in August of 2012 while undergoing IVF. I knew immediately upon meeting him that he would help me in my fertility journey. I am certain that his treatments helped me become and stay pregnant, something I was beginning to think would never happen. Not only does Harris go above and beyond in terms of gentle care during acupuncture treatments, but he also takes as much time as you need to discuss your concerns, answer questions, and give you pertinent information. During my pregnancy he helped in relieving me of some not so pleasant symptoms, and gave me lots of ideas surrounding health and nutrition that I took to heart. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Sincerely, Lindsay

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! I do not hesitate giving his contact information to friends and family whom I think would benefit from his care….M.K.

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. I only wish I had a comparable Acupuncturist in in my home city!

Something that we thought might never happen for us…

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.

Today and tomorrow mark big milestones for us. This morning we had our big ultrasound and tomorrow marks the halfway point of this pregnancy. A perfect time to look back and to look forward.

The fear of this won’t work and the fear of those first weeks that something might go wrong has been replaced by an incredible amount of calmness, happiness and confidence. The sickness is all gone and has been replaced by glowing cheeks and sparkly eyes. The little tickles and kicks that I’ve been feeling for a week make me grin from ear to ear. I believe that our journey how we got here has a lot to do on how strongly we feel about all those little moments. Something that we thought might never happen for us is happening right now and here. Something that I started to exclude from my dreams because it was too painful to think about has found me yet again. But in a much stronger way. And not just in my dreams. In my reality.

During the past 2 years we had to overcome a lot of roadblocks and I’m very grateful for your guidance on how to remove and overcome them. It was a lot of work, many tears, lots of fears and many choices but it was most definitely all well worth it. Our infertility has changed me. But without it I wouldn’t be the person that I am today. And that is why I wouldn’t change the past or our journey even if I could.

Our story will always be our story and you and your team will always be part of it. I’m already looking forward to the day when we get to tell it to our daughter or son.

THANK YOU FOR ALL and see you again soon,
B
