Great for Back Pain – My PT recommended this place when I was suffering from really bad back pain. Nothing seemed to be working so I gave them a call. To be honest I wasn't sure about acupuncture at all. If I hadn't been desperate and out of options I'd never have contacted them. I hate needles and my Dad is a doctor so I was brought up to see alternative medicine as quackery.
From the start I was impressed. The phone was answered by a receptionist who was very polite and reassuring. When I arrived at my appointment I was amazed to find a large, spotlessly clean, beautiful office. I saw several acupuncturists there over the course of about a month and everyone was really professional and knew their stuff. Their initial interview was way more in depth than anything my doctor would have done and I felt that I had been properly diagnosed. The needles were painless as it turned out and I say this as someone who's really needle-phobic.
Guess what? It worked. For the first time in ages I'm completely free of pain and don't need to go back. Even my skeptical MD Dad is impressed. The icing on the cake was that I submitted my receipts to my insurance company and found that they cover acupuncture. I guess even insurance companies are now coming round to some forms of alternative medicine.
This is my only experience of acupuncture so I don't know what other places are like but this center is fantastic and I've been telling everyone about it. All the acupuncturists are licensed and certified and they tell me they all have to have an MS in Chinese medicine. Some of them teach at grad school level. The owner is someone I never met but from what I hear she's very well known in acupuncture circles and writes books about Chinese medicine. She's more expensive so I chose not to see her (had I known my insurance would cover it I probably would have done!) but her staff were excellent and solved my problem.
Come to YinOva to get pregnant – There is really easy formula to get pregnant.
1) Read the book "Making babies" by Sami David and Jill Blakeway
2) See Dr Sami David for a complete work-up
3) Go to the YinOva center and be treated by Jill Blakeway if there is a female infertility issue and Noah Rubenstein if there is a male infertility factor.
We did all of the above and my wife got pregnant within 4 months.
I am physician with many years experience. The above professionals really know what they are doing. I could not recommend them any higher.
We had been to many different acupuncturists but none were as knowledgeable, caring and as reassuring as Jill Blakeway.

Amanda at Yinova got me pregnant. – After almost 3 years, 3 IVFs, a frozen transfer, 6 IUIs, laproscopic surgery (all at one of the finest Infertility Clinics), and 2 previous acupuncturists, Amanda Silver at Yinova helped me get pregnant naturally after three months.
I was referred by a friend-of-a-friend who had been through similar trials, and also got pregnant after three months of going to Yinova.
Amanda was focused from day one on measurable outcomes. She wanted to get my basal chart more even, and my ovulation happening earlier each month. Under her care, every month, my ovulation occurred a day or more earlier. I went from ovulating on day 21 to day 16 (the month I got pregnant). It was amazing to be able to measure the progress.
How did we get there? Through acupuncture, but also a change in my diet. Because of my endometriosis, I was advised to eat more leafy greens, less white carbs, red meat, and dairy (all triggers for endo). I dropped 10 pounds without trying because of this, and was feeling more and more terrific every week.
The month I got pregnant, I felt so healthy (unlike after my IVF cycles), and I think this has helped me have a strong pregnancy thus far. I'm in my 13th week, and couldn't be more thrilled.
Please try going to see Amanda. You will not regret it.
Best Fertility Accupuncturist and Fertility Massage in NYC – I did both accupuncture with Jill and massage with Nicole at YinOva and I am convinced that the two of them helped me get pregnant on my second try. They are both excellent at what they do and beyond supportive for the emotional ups and downs with trying to get pregnant and being pregnant. Jill goes without saying is in my opinion the best fertility accupuncturist in the city and Nicole's massages were healing both on the physical as well as the emotional level. All the care helped me have an easy pregnancy as well.
East Village Acupuncture – I met Nicole, an expert in Mayan massage about 2 years ago. She was instrumental in helping me break up abdominal scar tissue and improve the blood flow and energy to help me conceive. I did everything she suggested from hot oil packs to belly massages and now I'm loving my 3 month old son. I highly recommend Nicole for massage therapy when trying to conceive and while pregnant. Her massages were the most relaxing part of my pregnancy!
It really WORKS – We were trying to get pregnant for such a long time that seeing Jill felt like the end of a long journey.
Both of us went to the Yinova Center. I met Jill on a weekly basis and my husband went to see Noah Rubinstein (Jill's husband) also on a weekly basis. Both of us were treated with acupuncture and Chinese Herbs. After seeing them for 3-4 months, we are finally pregnant!!!
What a miracle. I highly recommend Jill and her husband Noah at the Yinova Center if you are struggling to get pregnant.
THANK you JILL and NOAH for this wonderful support!!!
You should go! – After more than three years trying to get pregnant and trying pretty much everything under the sun (including two other acupuncturists, two rounds of IVF, and other serious undertakings), this is where we finally got pregnant. Both Jill and Amanda are incredible people and incredible at their work and the place itself is lovely. Just go.
After visiting other acupuncturists Jill was a revelation – After a five year struggle to get pregnant which involved several failed IVF's and countless visits to acupuncturists and other alternative healers, I read Jill's book Making Babies and decided to give her a try. What a difference! My previous acupuncturist had come highly recommended by NYU Fertility Center and I faithfully went to see her every week for 6 months. As far as I could tell nothing changed and I began to think I was wasting my money.
When I started to see Jill, I could not believe the difference. Jill set identifiable and clear health goals for me which she then set about achieving. She immediately pinpointed what was wrong with my menstrual cycle and bit by bit corrected everything. Sure enough I got pregnant. It felt like a miracle but it wasn't - instead it was due to a very scientific, rigorous, thorough approach.
Having seen acupuncturists on and off for 5 years I can honestly say that I didn't understand the power of Chinese medicine before I came to the YinOva Center and met Jill.
There are many imitations of this place. Some of them are Jill's former employees or former students but trust me (and I say this from experience) they're not Jill. They may claim to use her methods but her success is not due to a method. She's successful because she's smart, knowledgeable and experienced. Her reputation for excellence is well deserved. Also as every one of these reviews points out she's kind, warm, genuinely caring and remarkably down to earth.
Thanks to her skill, detective work and systematic approach I'm pregnant naturally after spending tens of thousands of dollars on failed IVF's. I can't thank her enough.
On a side note I was so impressed by Jill's skills that I sent my mother ( a total skeptic) to see her for treatment for migraines and again she was very thorough and systematic and amazingly my mother's migraines have decreased in intensity and frequency after only one month. My mother's background is in science and she too was impressed by Jill's very scientific approach. I also sent a friend who Jill saw and then tactfully told her that she didn't think she could help her and she didn't want her to waste her money on acupuncture because it wasn't the answer to her particular problem. I know she's very successful and doesn't need the business but I was still impressed by her integrity.
There's no BS at the YinOva Center. Jill identifies the problem, tells you honestly if she can help, gives you a realistic time line and then systematically week by week makes sure that she is making progress. A very different approach from other NY acupuncturists. What a revelation!
Revolutionary Healing! – After an ovarian cyst ruptured and landed me in the ER, further investigation led to the discovery of more cysts and probable endometriosis. I decided to go forward with laparoscopic surgery in hopes of it relieving the debilitating pain I had grown accustomed to. I was lucky to be referred to Jill at the Yinova Center a few weeks before my surgery.
Jill and the Yinova Center are nothing short of magic. Everyone is extraordinarily kind and genuine. As soon as you enter the Yinova Center, it feels like a comforting, relaxing cocoon of peace and hope. While I appreciate how Western medicine has aided my healing, there are some aspects of this process that can only be aided by Acupuncture, Herbs, and Nicole Kruck's fantastic Mayan Abdominal Massage.
I feel noticeably better every time I leave. Jill's herbal expertise is phenomenal, and I am going to be eternally grateful for her herbal prescription stopping the non-stop bleeding I was having for months after surgery. Nicole helped my uterus shift back into place after surgery, and taught me invaluable empowering information about my reproductive organs.
Fertility issues are often unexpected and can make one feel like they have lost control of their life, but the Yinova Center and its wonderful staff has helped me regain a greater understanding of my body. I am so very grateful to have the Yinova Center be part of my life and recommend it to anyone whose life may be improved by their expertise.
THE BEST... – I was referred to Jill Blakeway emphatically by 2 friends who said they were transformed under their care. As a lifelong sufferer of a chronic inflammatory condition that is very difficult to treat, it was a miracle to have found Jill and Yinova Center. She quickly and confidently put me back into remission, and kept me feeling good for the last 3 years. I am so grateful for her knowledge, compassion, and understanding of my condition, and for keeping me calm in the midst of the storm. Jill has a truly lovely, gentle way about her and I always manage to leave feeling as if I've been sprinkled with a bit of fairy dust.
