Leeches work with blood. Blood is responsible for nourishing all cells of the body with oxygen and nutrients and removing waste. Therefore, a good blood circulation and clean blood are the key to healthy functioning of all organs, systems, tissues and cells.
Also, the leech therapy is effective at cleaning our lymphatic system, which is essentially the body’s drainage system. Lymph plays a key role for our immunity. After leech application stagnant lymph with toxins comes out (mixed with blood in post-application bleeding) and new pure lymph will be produced by body shortly after.
