Jill Blakeway is a licensed and board certified acupuncturist, clinical herbalist, and an empathic and intuitive practitioner of Chinese medicine. She is also an author and speaker and is based in New York City where she founded and runs one of the largest acupuncture practices in the US, the YinOva Center.
Jill’s 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 wrote her first book Making Babies: A proven three-‐month program for maximum fertility, with a Reproductive Endocrinologist. Making Babies was published in 2009 and is based on a Chinese medical fertility program developed at the YinOva Center, combined with conventional medical advice from her co-‐author, Dr. Sami S. David. Jill’s second book Sex Again: Recharging your libido, grew out of her clinical practice and in response to couples asking for advice about how to revitalize their sex lives. Jill, and her team at the YinOva Center, noticed that women of all ages were telling them that they wanted to want to have sex again and wished they could enjoy sex more. This led Jill to explore some of the ancient Taoist texts looking for solutions for her very modern patients. Having created a system that works, she wrote about it in Sex Again, which includes a program to help couples recharge their libido in six weeks. Jill speaks often about natural medicine on TV and radio and was the first acupuncturist to give a TED talk at TEDGlobal in 2012.
