The woman presented with lymphatic stasis and varicosity in the lower extremities, with previous medical treatment of the small saphenous vein and surface varicosities. She had to wear medium compression stockings (knees down) due to pain and swelling. Two days after the first session (6 leeches) her pain went from 10 to 3 without the need to wear stockings. After the second session (7 leeches) the pain dropped to .5 or 1 depending on work demands.
During an episode of food poisoning, the pain returned in her legs but resolved with another session. She has continued with treatments to detoxify the internal organs and reports feeling physically well and emotionally strong.
