History of Lok Acupuncture Clinic in Las Vegas

Dr. Peter Lok has served as both President and a member of the Nevada State Board of Oriental Medicine.  Dr. Lok also is a member of the Nevada Oriental Medical Association and the Nevada Society of Oriental Medicine.  Dr. Lok received his professional education and training in Hong Kong.  Additionally, Dr. Lok was able to develop unique professional depth through his close partnership and practice with his father, Professor Yee-Kung Lok. 

Professor Yee-Kung Lok served as President of the largest college of acupuncture in Hong Kong and lectured around the world.  Professor Lok also was able to work closely with the Nevada state legislators in 1973, ultimately convincing them that acupuncture should be a recognized area of medicine by providing medical treatment to those who sought it.

Due to the demand driven requests of those patients who benefited first-hand from Professor Lok’s care, Nevada became the first state in the United States to recognize and legalize acupuncture and Chinese medicine as an established and respected area of medicine.

TIME magazine reported the historical event on April 23, 1973.  Click here to read more.

For more information on the historic process the Nevada State Legislature went through in order to legalize acupuncture in Las Vegas and Nevada with the invaluable help of Dr. Peter Lok's father, Professor Yee-Kung Lok, read this article by Dr. William Edwards, Jr., MD - Acupuncture in Nevada (Government and Medicine) June 1974.  Click here to read more.

Professor Lok’s pioneering work in the field of acupuncture has been recognized by the Nevada State Legislature on May 2, 2011.  Click here to read more.
