Ciel Walko (pronounced See-El)


Support Philosophy

My commitment as a practitioner is to support, inform, guide and inspire clients in their pursuit of optimum health.

Each person’s health needs and goals are unique, so a comprehensive, individual approach that provides for immediate needs, as well as future goals, is imperative.

Using state-of the-art assessment tools, I build a multi-disciplined, customized approach combining classical acupuncture, spagyric and Chinese herbs, nutritional support, homeopathy, detoxification strategies, manual therapy guided imagery and energy work to support physical, mental and emotional balance.


Temple Guardian Healing Approach

Using Acupuncture, Classical Chinese Medicine , BioEnergetic Assessment and a targeted nutritional approach for restoring neurotransmitter connections to support the body’s communication system; this allows the organs, glands and tissues to function in a more balanced way. (Click the link to learn more about Acupuncture and BioEnergetic Assessment.).

To achieve balance, the addition of Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy supports detoxification for channels and pathways in the body.

Education, as a catalyst for health, is provided in the various wellness classes offered at the center.

Beginning In 2010, the center introduced the “360° Around the Sun” series of 5 classes for staying healthy throughout the seasons, based on the 5 phases of Classical Chinese Medicine.
