Dr. Jill Blakeway Bio

Dr. Jill Blakeway is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and clinical herbalist. Jill founded the Yinova Center in 1999 and currently acts as Clinic Director alongside her husband, Noah Rubinstein. As a practitioner, she is known for her intuitive approach to Chinese medicine and particularly for her skills as an acupuncturist and energy healer.

Jill has always been passionate about helping women achieve a healthy pregnancy—so much so that the New York Times described her as a “fertility goddess” and named her as one of Manhattan’s top acupuncturists. She credits much of her success to combining the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine with modern, conventional biomedicine. To this end, she joined forces with a reproductive endocrinologist to co-author the bestselling book, Making Babies: A Proven 3-Month Program for Maximum Fertility (Little Brown, 2009) about how to conceive naturally. She also authored a second book about women’s sexual health called Sex Again: Recharging Your Libido (Workman Publishing, 2013). Jill’s third book Energy Medicine: The Science and Mystery of Healing (Harper Collins) was published in 2019. In it Jill describes what it means, personally and scientifically, to be an energy healer and draws on cutting edge research to explain how acupuncture and energy medicine work.



A dedicated, passionate team of board certified & licensed acupuncturists, herbalists, and bodyworkers.
Led by Dr. Jill Blakeway and Dr. Noah Rubinstein, Yinova has been home to some of NYC’s best licensed acupuncturists, massage therapists, and healthcare practitioners since 1999.

Most traditional cultures identified an animating force that governs physical & mental processes and supports our health. In Energy Medicine, Jill Blakeway shares cutting edge research that supports this ancient practice.

Jill explores what it means, both personally and scientifically to be a skilled healer, and describes the global journey she embarked upon to understand both the science and art of healing.

The Yinova team were hand-picked for the combination of academic rigor and energetic skills. All of the team members have been trained by Jill to incorporate energy work into an acupuncture treatment.

From April 2019, Jill be touring the US, Canada, the UK and Australia to talk about what she has learned and how to harness the energy that heals us.

“ “As a patient who has been blessed to experience Jill Blakeway’s incredible energy firsthand, I can attest that she is a gifted healer. In Energy Medicine she validates what we know to be true intuitively—that the body has the power to heal itself—and offers readers the tools to understand and access the subtle energy within us. Far from a mystical tract, this book provides a true scientific investigation of the energy that exists within each of us and connects us to one another.”

Uma Thurman
