Dr. Stephen J. Banko

About me

As a shaman, energy healer and chiropractor, I treat a wide array of health issues and concerns. The range of health and emotional conditions that can be addressed is virtually unlimited. When working in the realms of the mind, body, and soul, miraculous changes can and do manifest.
Through over 20 years of working with energy medicine, combined with a medical background and the study of quantum physics and mechanics, I have created a unique healing process that is unprecedented for addressing today’s health concerns.
Are you ready to take your health and well-being to a level you never thought possible?
Originally a native of upstate- New York, I have lived in Raleigh, North Carolina since 1983.  After obtaining an Associates, Bachelors, and doctorate, I opened a chiropractic office in 1992. I maintained a very successful referral-based practice for over 11 years, working with conditions from aches and pains to cancers to emotional traumas. It was during this period that I felt the need to further my studies in energy healing/medicine.
I had always had a strong interest and fascination with energy medicine and incorporated it into my chiropractic office.  I reached a point though, where I knew there was a lot more to the story with energy medicine than I was bringing to the table. So, that being said, I decided to take a hiatus from my chiropractic office setting and pursue deeper studies. This ultimately led me to the magical country of Peru. In Peru, I was able to work with and learn from the Shamans (medicine men and women/healers) of the Andes and the jungle.  I was initiated through sacred rituals into their way of work and living. It’s truly an honor to be in their midst. I continue to make yearly trips to Peru. The learning never stops, and of course, I get to reunite with some of the best of friends.
After a few years, I reopened my office with energy medicine being the primary focus.  I still do chiropractic, which is still amazing by itself.  Although when you combine the energy medicine with chiropractic, most problems that seemingly could never be fixed (physical and/or emotional) can now be helped, resolved and/or eliminated.

“There are doctors and there are healers; Stephen Banko is a healer. There is a divinity that works through this gentle soul to restore health and wholeness to the body, mind and spirit. For me, receiving treatment from Stephen is humbling and restorative, and after each session, I feel a sense of well being and peace. If I could fathom what Christ meant when he said “Peace be with you,” it would be the peace that I feel after working with Dr. Banko.

Since working with Dr. Banko I am virtually free of migraine headaches. I went from having headaches that lasted anywhere from one week to one month, every month to virtually none at all. He has worked with my daughter since her birth to maintain good health and since December 2006 has been working with her to heal her injuries after a life threatening fall from a horse. Most recently, I witnessed him work on my mother after a devastating and paralyzing stroke; during her treatment, my mother told me that she felt God holding her in His hands and healing her broken body. It is humbling.”
