Spence was recommended by PCRM...

When I first decided to do acupuncture before ivf I was not sure if it would help but thought I'm desperate so after reading up on the Internet along with the thousand other articles I read I decided it was worth a try. Spence was recommended by Pcrm and I wanted someone who worked with their team. My back story is that we had tried to have a baby for 3 years with 3 failed attempts with iui. We were only planning to do ivf 1 time (so we said but you never know) so I was willing to try anything. Going into I never expected to achieve the sense of serenity I had.

Thank you for helping us become pregnant

Darryl and I just wanted to write to you and say “thank you” for helping us become pregnant with our little miracle. From the time I wrote you, Lorne, and spoke to you on the phone I felt that we were in good hands. During our first consult with the IVF clinic, we were told that due to my ovarian cysts and my husband’s male factor issues, our chances weren’t good. I needed to get those cysts removed before we would be allowed into the program. This was step one. Lorne, you helped prepare my body for surgery, and my recovery was remarkable.

Invaluable part of both my IVF and first trimester journey

"Dr Pentland quickly became "Spence" such is his easy-to-be-around manner. He clearly has a passion for helping couple's achieve their goals, and that is, the successful birth of a wee monkey. Or in my case, a not so wee monkey. His optimism and expertise made him an invaluable part of both my IVF and first trimester journeys."

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.

One of the most knowledgeable practitioners I have come across

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 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.

Stress relief during a very Stressful time

The acupuncture from Sean was great for stress relief during a very stressful time. I truly felt that it allowed me to experience total relaxation which I'm sure helped to bring about a positive result. The environment is calm and soothing and the staff are caring and professional. Would absolutely recommend.

It was such a relief to be treated as a whole person

It was such a relief to be treated as a whole person after encountering the detachment of the Western Medical approach.

I had been trying to conceive for 3 years when I decided to try acupuncture after having some small spots of endometriosis removed. My gynecologist had told me that I had a 6 month window of opportunity to achieve pregnancy if this was the problem. I wanted to optimize my chances by visiting Acubalance.

A long journey to success

My husband and I have just gone through an IVF cycle with an egg donor and we're now looking forward to an upcoming pregnancy test. Regardless of the outcome of that test, we are still a success story and we appreciate what Spence has done for us ...

I truly believe that Sherry was instrumental in helping lead a pain free life (I am not exaggerating)!

When I visited Sherry for the first time I was in a state of desperation. I had been to many physicians, had many medical procedures and nothing seemed to help. I was skeptical about the whole acupuncture process, but at that point I would try anything! I was having many digestive issues and experience pain every time I ate anything, solid or liquid. Needless to say I was a mess. Sherry put me at ease immediately, her quiet,calm demeanour was very soothing.

I'm sure it helped in our success!

The entire experience was incredible. I highly recommend it. I really enjoyed talking with Dr Fisher about the process and learning from him. I found the treatments both before and after the transfer extremely relaxing and it was very convenient having it right next door to the OR. I'm sure it helped in our success!
