Our story

Discovering the acient art of hirudotherapy

Dr. Dokukin's experience practicing modern medicine for over a decade made him realize the limitations of symptom-based treatments. Seeking alternative methods of healing, he discovered the ancient practice of hirudotherapy, which uses medicinal leeches to promote wellness and alleviate pain.

At Leech Medicine, we specialize in using hirudotherapy to treat specific disease states, unlike other clinics that mainly offer it for cosmetic or "well-being" purposes. Dr. Dokukin has studied and practiced hirudotherapy in Russia, where it is a mainstream healthcare practice.

Our personalized and holistic approach focuses on treating the root cause of pathology, not just the symptoms, to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms for sustainable health. We are dedicated to providing our patients with natural, effective, and compassionate care, and are proud to be part of the hirudotherapy renaissance.
