Small medical leeches are by far our most popular product to date. Maybe because of its low price, making this little leech so convenient to purchase, or maybe because the little leech as a blood sucker feels more comfortable to use for leech therapy by novice or timid patients, we don't know exactly, but this product is our #1 seller. Small leeches are easily and effectively used in every type of leech therapy, starting from anti-aging and rejuvenation Hirudotherapy cosmetic procedures, through bloodletting on the navel or body, where the small leeches do not leave a mark and they end with the most difficult of places to apply leeches, which is the head and private region. Not to mention, little leeches are also the only sized leech to use in delicate areas of the body: such as arms, face, inner thighs, throat, and neck, as well as for hemorrhoids. The little leeches cope equally well with all those delicate situations. Perhaps one application where the little leech might not be so good would be the calf muscles of the legs or upper back. Larger leeches are needed there, to release the blood pressure built up inside the blood vessels, to effectively deal with back stiffness, leg pain or varicose veins. For everything else, small leeches have been widely used and are almost always in stock and available for sale. Small leeches however suck very little amounts of blood and don't release many bio-compounds to facilitate extensive subsequent bleeding, which is why other sizes may be better suited to your leech therapy purposes. For complicated or chronic conditions, small leeches may not be the answer, as you need to use 5 times as many to get the same result, as you would with one large leech. The small leeches can be reused on the same patient in approximately 3 months after the initial Hirudotherapy.
