Acupuncture & TCM

A Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, author of ‘Being Fertile’ and creator of The Being Fertile Program, Dr Spence Pentland has been treating fertility and pregnancy issues exclusively since 2004. His Vancouver & Kelowna clinics, Yinstill Reproductive Wellness, provide natural evidence-based treatment solutions to women and couples experiencing reproductive health challenges.


“Over the past decade, I have seen the profound effect that infertility has on women and couples. It touches on something so fundamental to our being human that the emotional depths experienced are unlike any other - studies showing psychological impact comparable to the diagnosis and struggle with cancer. Looking through the lens of infertility I have gained intimate insights into the functioning of the body and human spirit. I feel blessed to have been a part of so many journeys toward the creation of family and feel the world needs to know more of these struggles so that we can all better support those who are hurting beyond comprehension.”


Dr Pentland has helped thousands of people accomplish their dreams of creating their own happy healthy family. This compassionate expertise is reflected in his many patient testimonials.  He has also published research on the stress relieving effects of acupuncture when administered in the weeks leading up to IVF embryo transfer and is the founder of the IVF acupuncture group of greater Vancouver.

He is excited to be available to maintain consistent care for all of Dr Stephanie’s patients while she is away and is also accepting new patients at this time.

Dr Spence is well equipped to support all of Dr Steph's and the AltaVie team's patients with all their acupuncture needs, from hormonal and stress support through fertility and pregnancy.  He is an incredible resource for our community and the Okanagan.

Dr Erica Volk will be covering Dr Steph's naturopathic medicine practice.

Please do not hesitate to contact the office to learn how to put these two incredible practitioners to work for you. We are welcoming both new and existing patients.
