Straight from the source: Demystifying acupuncture
More facts about demystifying acupuncture
Last week we started talking about acupuncture, it’s history and the scientific research that backs its effectiveness. You can read about it here, if you had not gotten the chance yet! This week I wanted to take it a step further and continue demystifying acupuncture! Watch the vlog interview below with an amazing acupuncturist (who I happen to know for the past 9 years!).
Jill Blakeway is a licensed acupuncturist and, even more, she has doctorate in acupuncture medicine (DACM). She has been practicing for over 20 years, worked in clinics and hospitals and, since 1999, has been working in her own private acupuncture practice in NYC called YinOva Center. She is an author with two published books and a third in the making and she has appeared in multiple TV shows, including Good Morning America, talking about acupuncture.
Jill believes that the best outcomes for patients are achieved with an “east meets west” approach. So, to that point, she often works in conjunction with medical doctors to ensure her patients get the best care possible! 🌟
Watch our interview as Jill gives us the nitty gritty on acupuncture and we break through some of the myths, fears and misconceptions that many of us may have surrounding acupuncture.

I’ve never done this, but it’s interesting to hear how it works! I’m still not quite sure if it’s for me.
I hope this makes it a bit easier to try it if you chose to! Thanks for your visit!
Very interesting certainly lots of information.
Acupuncture is so interesting! Thanks for sharing so much information. 😊
It really is! Thank you for viewing!
Thank you for this, very interesting! I’m a big fan of acupuncture! It helps in so many ways.
Awesome interview! I tried out acupuncture for my anxiety problems a while ago and it was pretty great. I really dislike how western medicine revolves around passing around pills that may cure symptoms, but don’t attack the root cause. These pills just get people hooked and, meanwhile, the problem is still there.
That’s great! I’m so glad it helped you!
Yes, for sure sometimes these are overused. Although certainly sometimes necessary! We just need to find the right balance!
I never realized how small the needles used are, that makes it seem a lot less scary!
Yes! They are TINY!!
