Testimonials

Profound satisfaction

I’ve had all kinds of massages from all types of practitioners. I’ve had deep tissue, soft tissue, Swedish, Thai, Ayurvedic – you name it. I’ve found all beneficial in their way, but each discipline has its limits and none were able to provide the treatment I needed. I was expecting a similar experience with Natalie. But my first session was a revelation. Natalie intuitively grasped the unique needs of my body. Her fluency in a wide range of approaches allowed her to synthesize different techniques in order to directly address my problems. The result: profound satisfaction.

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 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!

After Several Unsuccessful IVF Attempts...

Dear Spence & Alda, After a long difficult journey including several unsuccessful IVF attempts, I was beginning to believe that I could never become pregnant. When a friend recommended acupuncture we had already decided that this IVF cycle would be the last but that I would do anything to increase my chance of success.

I did not anticipate the profound effect of acupuncture on my sense of well-being and on my emotional, psychological and physical state. The teatment enabled me to find my balance again.

I can do it with my own eggs!

I have suffered from infertility for a long time. I had done an IVF that went really bad. I got 14 eggs, 6 mature that 5 of them arrested the next day. I had just one very bad quality embryo to transfer and of course no pregnancy. When I saw my doctor after this failed IVF he strongly recommended donor egg to me. I was devastated.

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

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.

I really appreciated the care I received from Harris

I really appreciated the care I received from Harris. At first I was uncertain about seeing a male practitioner for my reproductive health concerns, but from my first meeting with him I felt very comfortable, and my comfort and trust grew the longer we worked together. I was consistently impressed with his knowledge about, and passion for, acupuncture and chinese medicine. I felt that he always took the time to listen to my specific concerns and symptoms, and tailored his approach to work specifically for my needs.

treatments that resulted in my miracle boy

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.

Dr Harris Fisher my testimony for such great treatment and care

Shortly after getting married in 2013, I had a miscarriage. I was 35 at the time and my husband and I were devastated — I became obsessed with motherhood. “My whole focus turned to getting pregnant. And every month that it didn’t happen, my obsession got worse.” After losing another baby at around 10 weeks, I was desperate. A trip to a fertility clinic with my husband, revealed that I had high levels of follicle-stimulating hormones and lower levels of Anti-Mullerian Hormones.

Forever grateful for their clinic and doctors!

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.

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.

Turning a Breech Baby with Moxa

Take care,

I Owe Part of Her "Being" to Dr. Spence

My baby making journey started after not getting pregnant for a year on my own without any contraception. I had always had a cycle that was erratic. When i mentioned this to my neighbour, she told me that she had sent two of her friends who were having the same problem to see Dr. Spence and within two months, they were both pregnant. I wanted to try something more natural and it didn't take long for me to call and book my first appointment.

Gratitude

I appreciate your time with the holistic support I received over the winter and spring. Having someone listen me as I debrief each week has helped too. I haven't been to a clinic like Yinstill where it's warm, welcoming and very supportive. Thanks to you and your team for all you do in supporting my health. Just wanted to share my thoughts in how you all make a difference for me weekly.
