About Medicinal Leech Therapy (HirudoTherapy)

Hirudotherapy or Medicinal Leech Therapy (MLT), uses the natural healing properties of leeches to treat various health conditions. This medical practice, with roots in ancient Egypt, involves placing leeches on the body to release beneficial substances. We now offer this effective, holistic treatment in London, providing a natural alternative for health and wellness.

Bioactive substances in leeches and their effects

Leeches release over 20 identified bioactive substances, including antistasin, eglins, guamerin, hirudin, saratin, bdellins, complement, and carboxypeptidase inhibitors. These substances offer analgesic, anti-inflammatory, platelet inhibitory, anticoagulant, and thrombin regulatory functions. They also degrade extracellular matrices and fight microbes.

Enhance Blood Circulation

By drawing out excess blood and improving circulation, leech therapy ensures that immune cells can move more efficiently throughout the body, enhancing the body’s natural defense mechanisms.

We position leeches on the skin near the incisions or swollen areas to effectively draw out excess blood, reduce swelling, and enhance blood flow.

Leech Therapy to Boost Immune Response

The bioactive substances in leech saliva, such as hirudin and other enzymes, have immune-boosting properties that can enhance the body’s ability to fight off infections and illnesses..

Maximize Therapeutic Benefits

Take the Action And Choose 5 Therapy Test Sessions

Leech therapy sessions typically last approximately 30 to 60 minutes. The duration can vary depending on the specific treatment area and the individual’s condition. During this time, leeches are allowed to attach and feed until they naturally detach, which ensures maximum efficacy of the therapy.

lOur trained therapists conduct each session, accurately identifying the optimal points for leech application to ensure safety and maximize the therapeutic benefits of the treatment.
