Sujok Therapy was invented by a Korean Professor late Park Jae Woo a few decades ago. It is a drugless method of treatment and is a mixture of Acupuncture and other healing methods. Sujok is made of two words Su (Hand) and Jok (Feet). Sujok is thus a method of treatment based on the principle that all parts of the body have a positional link in our palm and feet and it thus focuses only on treating the hands and feet. After successfully treating many chronic diseases in his country Prof Park chose India to propagate his therapy and established Sujok Association of India in Nagpur. He groomed and trained a few physiotherapists and other interested people and kept on visiting India to popularise this drugless treatment. Sujok in recent years has become very popular in some parts of India among the people suffering from chronic diseases liked Axonal Neuropathy and cerebral palsy and especially the poor people who cannot afford costly treatment in big hospitals. It is becoming very popular because it is very effective natural therapy, is safe and is without medicine. It is very cheap and gives instant relief. I had a personal experience of instant relief when in April 2019 I had a slip disc and sciatic nerve pain in a conference in Dehradun. Mr Minchul Park Son of Professor Park who was sitting beside me on the dais gave me Sujok therapy on my fingers for 15 minutes and I got instant relief in pain and then was able to travel to Delhi the same day by road.


The Sujok treatment is carried out by using various Instruments like very small needles and magnets specially defined and made with expert precision to carry out specialized specific treatment in the hands and feet. Sujok needles are made of steel suitable for medical use in humans. The needles have spring like handle on one side and are perfectly shaped for painless insertion by needle inserters.  The therapy also uses the energy in lentil seeds and colour therapy. One of the most effective ways to massage the points of the body part where the treatment is needed is done by a diagnostic & therapeutic stick after identifying the exact points and then treating those points by massaging.


Magnets are the most important tools in the armoury of Sujok healer. They are used to channelize the flow of energy in the identified body part. Yet another way of treatment is the application of elastic ring messenger as useful and hand way to provide continuous pressure on the identified point.


As for the efficacy of the treatment the Sujok practiceners give a long list of diseases which can be cured by them like Arthritis, Bronchitis, Asthma, Cervical, Spondylitis, Backache, Joints pain, Migraine, Hypertension, Sinusitis, Deafness, Paralysis, Constipation, Acidity, Obesity, Diabetes, Blood-Pressure, Menstrual Problems and many more diseases related to different organs of our body. However, I after discussing with a few patients cured by the head of the Dehradun Centre have found that it is very successful in all muscle and nerve related diseases. In one particular case one senior retired veterinary surgeon who was admitted first in a medical college of Dehradun and later was treated by All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Delhi for almost eight months for Axonal Neuropathy and was put through 84 tests and all tests are documented had ultimately out of frustration contacted the Sujok Smile Centre Dehradun and was cured by Dr Subhash Chaudhury head of Sujok in Uttarakhand in ninety days. Today he is fit and fine and his nerve conduction value had reached 56% in medical terms from 14 %. Similarly two Cerebral palsy children have returned home after fully recovering.


Today in a big and poor country like India with huge population, providing affordable health care system to all people is still a very big challenge for the government and the society. In the recent covid-19 pandemic the Ayurvedic and traditional systems of medicines have proved their efficacy in bolstering the immune system. In chronic diseases where the Sujok therapy has achieved excellent results beyond doubt, it needs to be subsumed in the holistic medical treatment procedure which we need to evolve to provide health care to our population. The health Minister Dr Harshvardhan who is a celebrated Doctor himself needs to evolve an integrated health care policy for certain identified diseases where a combination of all form of medical therapies can be applied to cure the ailments. Sujok therapy provides the government an excellent way to treat some untreatable diseases and for this to judge the efficacy the AIIMS Delhi along with other institutions must conduct some studies and standardize the protocols for identified diseases. For such identified diseases the Sujok therapy must be officially recognized.


However, one of the tasks cut out for the Sujok leaders in Korea particularly Dr Minchul Park Son of Prof Park and who heads the Sujok international foundation now is to rid the Sujok India Association from a coterie of selfish people in Nagpur who are not supporting the young entrepreneurs to spread out on account of their vested interests. Notwithstanding this negative streak however, one lady practiceners in Dehradun Dr Subhash Chaudhury is drawing huge patients and keeping the new drugless therapy in high pedestal and treating the poor people free. Hope Sujok will soon become a talk of the every town.
