The Work of the Institute


The European Institute of Hirudotherapy is the leading educational and regulatory body of its type on the continent of Europe.   The institute’s Professional Certificate in Clinical Hirudotherapy – Synosteology Specialisation, is delivered through blended learning – a combination of online modules and class-based tuition.  The course is suited to existing physical or complementary therapists who wish to add a new modality to their practice, or to those who wish to specialise in hirudotherapy exclusively.
