Founder of The YinOva Center
Senior Acupuncturist, Chinese Medicine Herbalist
Jill Blakeway is a licensed and board certified acupuncturist, clinical herbalist, and a highly skilled and intuitive practitioner of Chinese medicine. She’s the host of CBS radio’s weekly podcast Grow Cook Heal and the author of two popular books on women’s health, Making Babies and Sex Again.
Jill’s specialty is the care of women and children, and in particular in using Chinese medicine to enhance fertility and fertility treatments. Her work helping women achieve a healthy pregnancy inspired the New York Times to call her one of the city’s top acupuncturists and a “fertility goddess.” She is currently teaching gynecology and obstetrics in the Doctoral Program at Pacific College of Oriental medicine in San Diego.
Jill founded The YinOva Center in New York City in 1999 and in the intervening years it has grown into one of the largest acupuncture practices in the USA. The YinOva Center is currently home to 12 acupuncturists and herbalists as well as a naturopath, a nutritionist, a massage therapist, and a psychotherapist all of whom are known for their experience, warmth, and effective treatment methods. At YinOva Jill has created a unique approach to healthcare that is rooted in the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine, but integrates with western medicine to meet the needs of modern New Yorkers.
Jill is a popular figure in the media where she’s considered an authority on alternative medicine and women’s health. She has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, the Early Show, Good Morning America, NBC news, ABC News, Fox News, the Real Housewives of New York, and The Talk and has been quoted in New York Magazine, the New York Times, Martha Stewart Living, Elle, W and Town & Country to name but a few. Jill was also the first acupuncturist to give a TEDTalk, at TEDGlobal in 2012.
