This paper is aimed to review and analyze the benefits of the leech therapy in Unani system of medicine. Leeches help humans in a number of medical treatments. Ancient Egyptian, Indian, Greek and Arab physicians used leeches for a wide range of diseases starting from the conventional use for bleeding to systemic ailments, such as skin diseases, nervous system abnormalities, urinary and reproductive system problems, inflammation, and dental problems. Nowadays, they are being used for various therapies by Unani as well as allopathic practitioners. Leech therapy is not a new concept. It dates back to many centuries. It has been a vital part of the traditional methods of healing in many countries across the world since ancient times. Its origin may be traced to the early days of civilization when man roamed about in the jungles, leading a nomadic life. Today, Leech therapy has found acceptance in the modern society as an economical, quick and effective way to cure blood circulation disturbances and related diseases. However, there are diverse views over the classification of Leech therapy. While some medical experts think Leech therapy is a part of Unani system of medicine others deem it to be a treatment under naturopathy.

Keywords: leech therapy, Istifiragh.
