We’ve been touting the benefits of acupuncture for a while now, and there’s no one more enthusiastic about acupuncture and the many benefits than our own Leah Chischilly, Acupuncturist in Anthem. As a newer member of the Pure Health and Wellness team, we thought it would be great for our patients to get to know a little more about Leah.
Why Become an Acupuncturist in Anthem?
Leah joined Pure Health in February 2016 as an acupuncturist specializing in acupuncture for wellness, as well as cosmetic acupuncture treatments. Leah has a true passion for health and wellness. First, she’s a major proponent of yoga, which she credits with changing her life. As a yoga instructor, she met many members of the wellness community who opened her eyes to more alternative methods of therapy. As a personal trainer and workout enthusiast, Leah first thought chiropractic care might be a good career path for her. But as she worked with a chiropractor in Scottsdale, she quickly discovered acupuncture and all its benefits. That’s when she knew acupuncture was the right direction for her.
After years of training and certification, Leah was pleased to find Pure Health and start working with patients. The number one reason people come to see her: pain. Back pain, especially. Working with a chiropractor has yielded the best result for her patients, who recover and get relief faster when acupuncture and chiropractic care are performed as part of a holistic treatment plan.
Outside of pain, acupuncture in Anthem can treat just about anything for any type or age of patient. Leah works with patients to determine the root of their ailment, from allergies and anxiety to PMS and infertility. Often she finds that a patient will come in for one ailment but other things improve, too. She’s particularly passionate about working with Veterans, since many of her family members are Vets and she knows that they don’t always get the care they need and deserve.
What are New Acupuncture Patients Most Hesitant About?
The needles used in acupuncture are certainly what Leah’s new patients fear the most. Inevitably new patients have been hesitant to even try acupuncture because of a fear or hatred of needles. And the anticipation of pain when the needles are inserted. Most patients then find the opposite to be true after their first treatment; no pain when the needles are inserted, but instead a relaxing, calming feeling of balance. The thin, sterile needles used in acupuncture are about the size of one strand of hair – nothing like injection or IV needles!
If you have been considering acupuncture but are hesitant, now is a great time to try acupuncture with your local acupuncturist in Anthem, Leah Chischilly. Make an appointment today and get ready to feel relief as early as tomorrow!
