I love that Chinese medicine can fill in the blanks of Western medicine. Often patients come to me having tried “everything”. Finally, they get results with acupuncture and Chinese herbs and then think to use it first for future health concerns. Making a difference for someone who has been struggling to find relief is extremely rewarding.
Dr. Jill Blakeway
For as long as I can remember I have felt called to heal people in a hands-on way. I am grateful to the thousands of patients who have trusted me with their health care over the past 17 years. It continues to be a privilege to serve in this way.
There is an art to the way we practice, and that’s one of the things I love about Chinese Medicine, whether its in the touch of the practitioner or how we apply these timeless philosophies to nourish life and preserve health. At the YinOva Center we share a common goal and we work hard to help you find a place of balance and vibrancy.
One of the facets of Chinese medicine that most resonates with me is that it regards the body as its own best healer. I see myself as both a partner and a guide, helping my patients tap into the healing wisdom that’s inside each of us.
Dr. Lauren Dulberg
I come from a place where I strongly believe that one’s healing needs to be through deep nourishment of the spirit and by alleviating not only the suffering of the body but also the heart. I take a very gentle approach and have a high respect towards the relationship between the patient and the practitioner and how when there is full trust, understanding and communication, true healing can take place.
One concept that informs my practice of Chinese medicine is that of empowerment. One of my jobs as an acupuncturist is to encourage and assist my patients to be fully participant in their health and well being, which I love.
I love Traditional Chinese medicine because it allows me to help my patients correct the true causes behind their ailments instead of simply relieving symptoms. Through individualized treatment plans, I’m able to heal in what I feel is in the most effective and least invasive way possible.
I’m attracted to Chinese medicine for its attention to the details of the individual. It is nuanced and precise. It is problem solving in its most creative form – a challenging and very satisfying way to spend each day.
I like to take the time to listen deeply to my patients because that's the way I gather the information I need to help them live full and vibrant lives.

The Chinese pictogram Rén combines the character for a person with the number 2, representing two people working towards a common goal of health. What can be more life affirming than the opportunity to work with another person in a hands on way as they heal? I consider it a privilege and I love what I do.
My entire working life has been in healthcare, but it wasn’t until I studied Chinese medicine that I became an agent for healing. The practice of Chinese medicine recognizes a holistic triangle comprised of mind, body and spirit.
Although I love treating a wide variety of patients, there is no greater honor than to partner with my patients to fulfill their dream of pregnancy and having a baby. Chinese medicine provides me with the tools to help me guide them through this journey and beyond.
Dr. Daryl Thuroff
My clinical work is geared towards chronic pain, auto immune disorder and stress management, I'm especially interested in tapping into the mind/body connection. My goal is to facilitate healing based on individualized treatment of physical injuries along with emotional stressors.
