The Yinova Method

Founded in 1999 by Dr. Jill Blakeway, Yinova has become a home for people who are juggling complicated lives, trying to support their health as well as the health of their loved ones. We believe that good medicine combines the best that Eastern & Western medicine has to offer. Our practice is rooted in the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine, adapted to the needs of modern New Yorkers. We’ve been practicing this way for almost two decades and we call what we do the Yinova Method.

Clear Goals

After your treatment, your practitioner will come up with a clear plan for you and will let you know when to come back in as well as how frequently you should come. They may also prescribe you an herbal formula, which we will have ready for you as you check out. We’ll make sure you have all the information you need on how and when to take your herbs.

Frequently Asked Questions

The first time you visit us at Yinova you will receive a comprehensive consultation, a diagnosis and an acupuncture treatment, as well as Chinese herbs, if applicable. One of our experienced practitioners will go through your medical history with you and will determine the best course of treatment based on your case. No labs or medical documentation are necessary, but our practitioners are more than happy to look over any information that you’d like to bring. Once your practitioner has completed the intake, they will begin the acupuncture treatment. An Initial Consultation at Yinova lasts approximately 90 minutes. Any Follow Up Treatments will last approximately 60 minutes.


You can wear whatever you’d like! If your practitioner asks you to take off any items of clothing, they will let you do so privately and will provide you with appropriate ways to cover up.

For your Initial Consultation, we ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time to fill out the necessary paperwork and consent forms. For Follow Up Treatments, we recommend arriving 5 minutes before your appointment. Before every appointment, make sure to check in with the Front Desk. After they’ve let your practitioner know you have arrived, you can relax in our waiting room with some water or tea before your treatment.


Acupuncture needles are hair-thin and they are inserted gently and shallowly. While each person experiences acupuncture differently, most people feel only a minimal amount of sensation as the needles are inserted. Once the needles are in place, most of our patients tell us that they experience a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing that lasts for many hours after the treatment.


Most  of our patients see us weekly; however, each case is unique. Your practitioner will craft a clear treatment plan for you and will tell you how often you should have treatment. Everyone responds to treatment differently so your results will depend on your particular situation. There are certain issues that can be addressed in a visit or two; other cases might require more treatments until your goal is met. Your practitioner will be able to guide you on the results you can expect.  Often, patients will notice relief from a specific symptom straight away, though we may need more time to work on the underlying root of the issue.

Absolutely! You can also see a different practitioner each week if that works better with your schedule. The Yinova team works  collaboratively, so any practitioner you see will have access to your chart and will be fully informed about your case, enabling them to provide you with continuity of care.


Using our secure patient portal, OnPatient, you can message any of the practitioners that you have seen. The Front Desk will provide you with your login details when you first visit the practice. Your practitioner also has a Yinova email address which they will share with you after your first treatment. You will also be given contact information for the Clinic Directors, who are always available if you have a question about your case.
