Dr. Leininger a survivor of Chronic Lyme disease, following years of antibiotic treatment (including nine months of intravenous antibiotics), he was declared Lyme free.  However, in spite of his doctors’ efforts, he was left with disabling arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and many other ailments.  He was  told he would need to learn to live with the pain and train for a new vocation.  Devastated by this suggestion, and in an effort to regain his own mobility, his journey into Chinese medicine began.  During the process of healing, he realized that he was being called to serve more than just himself.

In the spring of 2005, he opened Three Treasures Wellness Center located in Knightsville Indiana and began his healing ministry.  In January 2012 he founded a new company, Pure Health Acupuncture LLC (A Natural Healing and Wellness Center) located in Brazil, Indiana.

His office utilizes acupressure (Jin Shin), acupuncture, Tuina (Chinese orthopedic massage) , medical qigong, cupping, gua sha, Chinese herbology, nutritional counseling, and personalized qigong instruction catered to each patient’s specific health needs.

His office has hosted interns from IU School of Medicine, ISU School of Nursing, Harrison College, and Ivy Tech Community College.

Dr. Leininger is in the process of developing a non-denominational qigong program for churches entitled, Grace Qigong™.  He welcomes inquiries regarding seminars, workshops, and retreats.
