What is the name of the treatment with leeches?

Hirudotherapy
Apitherapy
Horticultural therapy
Balneotherapy
Hirudotherapy Leeches have been used in medicine for thousands of years. Leeches remove blood from their host, and they release pain-killing (anesthetic) and blood-thinning substances with their saliva. Today, they're mostly used in plastic surgery and other microsurgery. This is because leeches secrete peptides and proteins that work to prevent blood clots.
