YinOva founder Jill Blakeway is a licensed and board certified acupuncturist, clinical herbalist, and both a highly skilled and an empathic and intuitive practitioner. She is also an author and speaker. She specializes in 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’s gift is for taking a 3500-year-old system of medicine and making its deep wisdom speak to twenty first century New Yorkers. Patients come for help with PMS, migraines, menopause, low libido, digestive issues, back pain and pretty much anything else you can think of. And parents come for safe, natural solutions for their children for a wide variety of childhood ailments, from colic, constipation, repeated ear infections, asthma and allergies to bed wetting.
Jill is the author of Making Babies and Sex Again. She makes regular appearances on TV and radio and in magazines. Jill is a former Professor of Asian Medicine at Mercy College, and she founded the Acupuncture Service at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn.
Jill divides her time between New York City and upstate New York, where she lives with her husband Noah, daughter Emma and their dog Louie. And a pretty impressive vegetable garden.
