Dr. Spence Pentland
Mission & Vision: ‘optimize the health of my clients, increase peoples chances of healthy conception, build happy families, and help cultivate a healthy fertile world.’
“Since 2004 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.”

He graduated from York University in Toronto with a Specialized Honors Degree in Kinesiology and Health Science. Since a young age Ryan has always been involved in many sports but mainly hockey and baseball. He has seen various types of injuries (soft tissue: muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc.) that have affected many athletes at different stages in their career and life after. Many injuries he had seen were treated with only Western medicine/therapies with little or no help and others with a combination of Western and/or Traditional Chinese Medicine which had great results. How could some tiny little needles and some glass cups help someone in pain? Ryan’s fascination with Chinese Medicine grew from there as he continued his education at the International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver.
