In 2012, succumbed to an accident as a result of which I had severe shoulder fracture. Also hurt my spine. The pain did not leave me for several months. At that time I used such methods as: orthopedic manual therapy, massage, physical therapy, cryotherapy, sulphide baths, radon, ointments etc. My spine still hurt.
For the first time I had leeches applied to postoperative scar (I had adhesions that I really bothered about). To my surprise not only the scar stopped pulling and pinching me but also back pain stoped. I enjoyed it very much. After several months of suffering the first day without pain. And then the next day and the next.
Leeches applied partly worked well on the whole body. Brought me so long awaited relief to the suffering. And so I fell in love with these little creatures. Helped not only my body but also gave me a lot of energy and joy.
In 1989, I graduated from Secondary Medical School in Poland.
In 1997 I graduated from International College with Naturopathy.
In 2014 I decided to expand my previous medical education in the field of Leech Therapy. I completed my training in several Leech Therapy Centres in Poland and England, including several months of practice in Warsaw Clinic.
In January 2015, I completed my training organized by the British Association of hirudotherapy in London. I had the opportunity to learn about the latest technologies used in hirudotherapy and procedures applicable in the UK.
With the versatile knowledge and experience I can now effectively help others and bring hope for a better life without pain.
Medicinal leeches are manufactured at a bio-factory or biological laboratory.
Each leech is used only once and is then humanely disposed of.
I do not put leeches into salt !!!
