"I am Laboratory Doctor and also have a degree in Pharmacology. I knew about Leech-therapy for a long time since medical school. I really enjoyed the programme; the course is very interesting and full of useful information. I recommend it to people with medical as well as non-medical background. You will not be disappointed and will learn a lot not just about Leech therapy but many other interesting things."

I am a GP from New Jersey, USA and currently doing Yuliya Kostenko's medical leech therapy course. She is an excellent teacher in both hirudotherapy and general holistic practice including herbal and fungotherapy. The course has changed my entire view of medicine and has been an eye opener for me. I highly recommend it for anyone taking care of patients who wants to go deeper in their assessment and treatment.”

Just finished my Leech Training Course and I couldn’t have asked for better!!! The program is absolutely clear, full of notions (as it should be) and Yuliya adds a lot of details that make it more and more interesting. Her competences and passion create a great mix for who really wants to jump into a professional leech course.

Highly recommended!!!!”

The course was by far one of the best trainings I have invested in for my business. As a new therapist, I knew I had to study with someone who was at the top of the industry. The amount of experience Yuliya has is clearly reflected in her knowledge and skills. Her style of teaching is so much needed in the leech’ therapy world, because she wants to see therapists succeed. I highly recommend taking her course!

This course is a hidden germ. The Professional Diploma covers a range of topics and I learned a lot. After completion I was able to perform my own treatments without having to pay again £250 for a single session in West London! Much pleased with the quality and clarity of the training materials. An amazing therapy that can help with more health issues that I could have imagined! Huge thank you for the course!!

Professional Diploma course is definitely highly recommended. Yuliya is very experienced and knowledgeable tutor. I do feel all aspects of Leech Therapy training were well covered. She is also friendly and approachable all the way during your new Leech adventure. Thank you for this unique and inspiring training. I now successfully practice Leech Therapy in Manchester.

Initially I was Yuliya’s private patient. While official medicine failed me, Yuliya’s treatments and wise advice got me out of dangerous health situation so I decided to train with her. The Leech therapy course has been super interesting and was probably the most useful programme I have ever attended. Never imagined that leech therapy could help with so many issues. Thank you for a great information. It was worth every minute spent.

I am delighted to have completed the Leech therapy course. Yuliya was very focused and dedicated to ensure that I received the best possible learning experience. I had support even after completing the course which was very reassuring.  Today I work as a Leech Therapist in Preston. I highly recommend attending the course to gain fundamental knowledge in Leech Therapy.  Anyone attending this course will greatly benefit from it.

Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a leech therapy teacher 💯 Don’t hesitate to take this programme, such knowledge is guaranteed to pay off over and over !

Yuliya is an amazing teacher with incredible knowledge! Patient and supportive during and after the course. To enhance Leech therapy treatments, she added information on Herbal medicine and medicinal mushrooms. One of the key discoveries was to learn that LT is a safe and effective tool protecting us against post-Covid blood clotting! I felt that I had the knowledge and skills to practice competently and with confidence. Many Thanks!! 🙏🏻
