IVF is an incredibly stressful procedure and I always left your clinic feeling more relaxed

Hi Dr Pentland / Dr Fisher, I wanted to thank you both for the exceptional care you provided me those two weeks in Burnaby when I was going through IVF treatment. I feel that the care you both showed me was far above and beyond what I have ever experienced at an acupuncture clinic, and your concern for and treatment of the acute shoulder pain I was also experiencing at that time was truly appreciated. Your clinic is like a spa with the scented eye pillow, guided meditations, and cozy electric blanket!

Best IVF response after acupuncture

Thank you, Erin!! I can never thank you enough for believing in me when all my fertility doctors told me that donor eggs or adoption was my best chance of being a mom! I had my best response to IVF after working with you, now I’m pregnant, and I know that acupuncture and diet made the difference! God Bless!!

Recovery from repetitive stress injuries

I have been seeing Sean Quigley for about six months now. Before treatment with Sean, I was in constant pain from repetitive stress and injuries in my joints. I tried many alternatives to aid recovery of my hips and shoulders. From Bowen treatment to Chiropractic to Yoga, nothing seemed to give me lasting relief. As soon as I started seeing Sean, my symptoms began to disappear. It is now to the point where I can't remember the constant pain I once accepted to be a part of everyday life. Thank You so much Sean!

Immediate trust in his ability as a healer

"His confident yet gentle healing technique caused me to immediately trust his ability as a healer."

I have been a patient of Spence Pentland for approximately 3 months. I have been receiving treatment for pain and numbness in my arms. I am familiar with the practice of acupuncture and have seen various acupuncturists over the past 10 years.

I do not believe I would have my twins if it were not for Spence and his team!

When I was diagnosed with fertility issues and given only a 10-20% chance of having a baby even with IVF, I was in complete despair. I felt helpless, scared, and hopeless. I was fortunate that a good friend had been through IVF and recommended seeing Spence. It was great advice!

My Fertility Journey

After a long time of trying to get pregnant I was feeling pretty frustrated and hopeless. I was already seeing a fertility specialist at Genesis and doing what I thought was everything I could to better improve my chances. Due to my husband and mines situation we were doing artificial insemination to try and achieve a pregnancy. After about 6 months of unsuccessful artificial inseminations I was trying to remain optimistic but it was getting harder and harder to put on a happy face around my family and friends. I was feeling like a failure and it was really hard emotionally.

He'll Be Known In Our Family As Uncle Spence

Dr Spence, as I called him, made me feel really cared for. My husband and I went to see him because we wanted to find out why we were having early losses. He helped us develop a new approach that included thinking about our diet and relaxing so that the natural process of conceiving could take place.

We started treatment with him April 2011 and we are now very happy to expect our first child for May 2012 :)

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.

PCOS: Pregnant the natural way

My husband and I started trying to conceive in January of 2006. Because of my having PCOS, we had already seen an infertility specialist at Genesis. I wasn’t ovulating as I hadn’t had a natural period in over a decade. My doctor started me on clomid right away. After about six months of trying and having no success, I heard of acupuncture through a friend. I decided to give it a try and met with Spence. Aside from receiving the acupuncture treatments, it was really nice to be able to discuss my infertility frustrations with someone so knowledgeable.

My acupuncture treatments for infertility, then pregnancy

My husband and I started to try to conceive when I was 35 and after 2 years of trying, we had no idea why I wasn’t getting pregnant. After being tested at the fertility clinic, we were told our infertility issues were “unexplained”. I had a friend who was going to acupuncture treatments for fertility issues too, and I asked her about it. Up until then, I had never even considered acupuncture for anything. I met Erin in June 2009 and upon meeting her, her personal and caring approach made me comfortable with giving it a try. Getting weekly treatments did so many things for me.

Variety of Treatments

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.
