Jill Blakeway, L.Ac., DACM
Dr. Jill Blakeway is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and a clinical herbalist. She 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.
Dr. Blakeway 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 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 about how to conceive naturally. She also authored a second book about women’s sexual health called Sex Again: Recharging Your Libido. Blakeway’s third book, Energy Medicine: The Science and Mystery of Healing was published by Harper Collins in Spring 2019.
Blakeway founded the acupuncture program at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, where she acted as Head of Inpatient Acupuncture Services for many years. She currently teaches gynecology and obstetrics as a visiting professor in the doctoral program at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego and in Chicago. She speaks at Chinese medicine conferences and her research has been published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. Blakeway was the first acupuncturist to ever give a TEDTalk, at TEDGlobal in 2012.
Energy Medicine: The Science and Mystery of Healing (1.5 PDA Points)
In Energy Medicine, Dr. Blakeway invites us on her global journey to better understand, apply, and explain this powerful healing force. Moving from her own clinic to the halls of academia, she talks to top healers, researchers, and practitioners—from the Stanford and Princeton professors researching the physics behind energy medicine and healing; to a Chinese Qi Gong master who manifests healing herbs directly from her palm; to a team of skeptical scientists who use “hands on” healing to repeatedly cure mammary cancer in mice. She also tells the story of how she discovered energy medicine and became one of the most sought-after healers in the world.
