Lok-Kwan Cheng, LAc, Diplomate OM
"Lok-Kwan" means "happily serving the people". It is the name his parents gave him.
Lok-Kwan was born and grew up in Hong Kong. He started practicing Qigong and Chinese martial arts when he was a teenager. In the U.S. he continued his practice with Master Wai-Lun Choi of Chicago and served as his assistant instructor for many years. In the nineties his tenure as secretary of the Midwest Buddhist Council enabled him to learn and practice meditation closely with monks from many traditions. At the same time he studied Zen Shiatsu with Wataru Ohashi Sensei and became a Certified Ohashiatsu Instructor. In acupuncture and Oriental medicine he studied with the renowned Daoist teacher Jeffrey Yuen who is his biggest influence in theoretical understanding. He learned auricular acupuncture under the mentorship of Dr. Richard Niemtzow, the creator of the Battlefield Protocol who was instrumental in bringing the practice of acupuncture to the US Armed Forces. Lok-Kwan also uses Master Tung's Miraculous Points and studied with Dr. Young Wei-Chieh, the foremost authority on the subject.
