Vishwanath, Deputy  Director, NAL, Bangalore and Dr.H.Bhojraj at the release of the book 'ACUPRESSURE - The Drugless Path to Good Health' on July 8, 2001 at the Indian Institute of World Culture, Bangalore,Karnataka,India.

The Acupressure Club, Bangalore, Karnataka had organised a function  at Bangalore on July 8,2001 to release the book titled 'ACUPRESSURE - The Drugless Path to Good Health' authored by Dr. H. Bhojraj. The author gave a brief
account of his experiences in treating people with ailments by holistic method (Acupressure/Acupuncture) and avoids the possible use of drugs. Being a scientist himself, he carried out research on the ancient methods of healing and today his colleagues and friends call him 'The Scientist - Healer'. An engineer by profession with the ISRO, Dr. Bhojraj obtained his MD (Acu) from the Open International University of Complementary Medicines, Sri Lanka under the guidance of the world renowned Acu therapist Lord Dr. Anton Jayasurya.

This is his second book, the first being ĎAcupressure and Fitnessí (now available on the Net.http://bhojraj.tripod.com). Prompted by his colleagues, friends and by those who underwent treatment and courses, Dr. Bhojraj took-up the task of writing this book which gives vivid, illustrated and easy to follow methods of acupressure treatment.

Speaking after releasing the book, Swami Swaswaroopananda (Nilgiri) emphsaised the need to understand the importance of considering the Mind, Body and Soul as one unit, particularly in curing ailments.

Dr. Surendra Pal narrated his experiences and the kind of relief he got after getting treated by acupressure.
Dr. S. Vishwanath shared his experiences the immense help he received from the drugless therapies and advocated strongly the wide adoption of the drugless methods for cure.

More than a dozen people shared their experiences in the drugless therapy. Mr. Ashok Popli, who had come all the way from Delhi for the function greatly, appreciated the work done by Dr. Bhojraj in popularising the drugless therapy.

Dr. J. Jayalakshmi ( from Chennai ), a practicing Homeopath for over three decades endorsed the immense advantages of acupuncture/acupressure. She went to the extent of mentioning of her use of Homeopath as a substitute for acu-techniques. Many others who had spent thousands of rupees on medicines and various tests/scanning etc., with no relief in sight for the ailments, thanked Dr. Bhojraj and his trainees for giving them a sigh of relief from their sufferings and ailments.

Persons who had undergone the advance course in the acupressure therapy were presented certificates and blessings from the Swamiji.

Dr. Bhojraj has been conducting both basic and advanced courses with the only aim of spreading the knowledge of drugless treatment of ailments, many of which are considered incurable under the allopathy system.


A gathering of more than 200 at the book release function did not move out till the vote of thanks was delivered followed by the Shanti Mantra.




Health sciences in India have all along treated the whole body, including the mind, as a single unit. There is a fundamental unity in spite of the diversities. A typical example that proves this point is the hand comprising the five fingers, of different sizes, shapes functions and location and yet acting as an integrated whole.

This approach called the 'holistic approach' is slowly gaining ground and momentum in the medical fraternity, however slow it may appear to be.

Since attaining overall health is the primary requirement, all systems like Allopathy, pulling should be given a chance and their due place in achieving it.

This is exactly what Dr. Bhojraj has done in this book 'Acupressure - The Drugless Path to Good Health'.

Himself a distinguished engineer and technocrat, he has put all his knowledge and experience in the field of acupressure wherein he got special training under competent masters. Also, his long practice in this field, which has earned him the gratitude of many a patients cured by him, has stood him in good stead, in opening before the layman a new, simple, efficient and even exciting vista of good health by simple means.

We congratulateDr. H. Bhojraj in this venture of his in the field of health and healing.

Book on "Acupressure-the drugless path to good health"
International Edition -  An over view

It has been a great experience for me to write my second book on "Acupressure - the drugless path to good health" due to my off-line research on healing science. In fact as scientists we never believed this healing theory when we were first introduced to this healing science by Dr.Jiten Bhatt. But my inner guidance persuaded me to experiment with these techniques and try the results. I got convinced for the first time when a terrible catch at the back was released within few minutes by activating the Li-4 on the thumb region .

It was my great fortune to get introduced to Dr. Ivan Comb who initiated me to pulse diagnosis and I found the available literature was not clear enough to grasp the techniques of pulse diagnosis. Then I read Prof. Park Jae Woo's lecture notes on Su-Jok Acupuncture, which gave the real scientific background for healing and disease process. My interaction with Dr. Fazlur Rehman made me to believe that if the diagnosis is correct, a single point needling for a minute can solve all the problems in the body. My experiment with Acupuncture started in the year 1999 though I have been practising Acupressure for many years. Acupuncture gives slightly better result than acupressure though both are very effective.

The theory described in this book can be easily grasped by anyone with bare minimum knowledge in anatomy and the theory is revolutionary in the field of healing science.

When effective healing techniques have been kept as secrets with few individuals,I thought it should be shared with the common man and we must spread this drugless technique to every nook and corner of this world.
As per this healing science we can not only cure a disease but we can also reverse it  by adopting the pulse diagnosis and adjusting the energy balance in the body.

Though in principle these therapies cannot help much in emergency condition like accidents, physical injury etc., where modern medicine gives the required relief. It can help to recover faster from the physical damage. It is always advisable to have a thorough check-up where the modern medicine has state-of-art biomedical equipment to pinpoint your problem in the organ.

If one has to stay healthy, the dynamics of health should be understood which is altered by our internal as well as external input in physical and mental levels. It is very difficult to understand the cause once we get that symptoms or disease but it is very much possible to come out of the situation by resting our body and taking minimum dose of medicines. Those people who have taken medicines for a long term should consult their physician before reducing or stopping the medicine. This healing science goes well with any other well established systems of cure and once our body is in perfect condition, any chemicals taken will be rejected through our system and one can safely reduce or stop the medication after tests. But the tendency to develop those symptoms can be there and one must observe the precautions in food habits and lifestyle changes.

Though this book is self-explanatory and meant for self practice, I recommend you to undergo the necessary course in Acupressure or Acupuncture for gaining more confidence to treat others. There are certain subtle points which we can absorb, in a practical course rather than reading the book. This book also contains a few case histories to give the confidence in this system.

How the treatment works for curing many diseases for which well established systems have no solution is the most frequently' asked question inside their mind during treatment sessions but never asked openly. As long as one gets the cure, he/she may not be interested in knowing the theory of working. But researchers and scientists normally would like to know how it works.

This book is precisely meant for all people who have that inquisitive mind to know how it works. It is our earnest attempt to create a better future generation with sharp mind and flawless health for everyone.
Health is not something which one can go to the market and buy for a price but is something each individual should work for it. It is my sincere advice for every one interested in good health to follow daily routines of physical exercise, meditation, proper wholesome food and proper breathing.

Of course there are umpteen ways to keep yourself healthy and Acupressure is one of the ways we can obtain it without spending much of your time and money. Though I am well satisfied with the contents, still the healing science changes so fast that a day may come where a simple touch or  simple look may heal the other person. Great masters have demonstrated it in the past and also in the present. The future will be more interesting in this healing science and everyone should become his own doctor so that by staying healthy, we contribute our best to our family, our organization, our society and to our country.
