After the first one to two sessions, Dr. Kaminsky can usually offer his opinion regarding the number of sessions it may take to see the results you are seeking.


To properly understand your health issues, my focus during your initial visit is to properly assess where in your mid body, head, limbs or aura you are harboring subluxations and mind-body disturbances that are causing your issues. 

Treatment sessions are intended with focused hand placement along specific areas on your body, including the spine, neck, back, head, limbs and organs.


To understand better how the body really works and heals one must understand the importance of the Craniosacral Mechanism and the Energetic System that is innate to human existence. All biological living beings are completely dependent on the energetic system within the physical body. It plays the key role in your physical, mental and emotional function, of being alive, keeping your nervous system functioning, your heart beating, lungs breathing, and everything else working.

To learn about your body’s innate ability to decrease pain, improve function and heal from the hands-on care provided by Dr. Kaminsky, it is important to learn how the body really works and how Craniosacral Therapy and energy methods are applied.

The intention during your treatment session is most importantly, to facilitate the movement of fluid in your body, release physical and energetic restrictions your body is storing and work on achieving optimal nervous system function.

Every session facilitates improvement in function, optimizes your craniosacral mechanism and fine-tunes your body’s life processes. This in turn alleviates your symptoms and reverses diagnosed conditions.

Improved function of the craniosacral mechanism creates a better flow of your body’s energetic and lymphatic system, advances your physical function, improves structure, facilitates a decrease in pain, improves the condition you present with, offers improvement in health, and promotes optimal healing / wellbeing.

Results are attainable. The body heals under the proper care.


What can you expect with Dr. Kaminsky?2018-12-13T14:22:42-04:00

Bodywork is an art based on the practitioner’s experience, diagnostic ability, intuition, therapeutic skill-set, intention and various other factors. Dr. Kaminsky’s approach is to first and foremost examine the physical body. Second, evaluate the energetic system for indicators, mainly the Chakra energy centers. This approach provides for him a focused body-map as to where on the body to begin the hands-on Craniosacral Therapy treatment.

How long does it take to see improvement?2018-12-13T14:22:32-04:00

Every person is different. Sometimes improvement is felt immediately, sometimes after a few sessions. Sometimes after many sessions and rarely no improvement at all.

How is healing achieved?2018-12-13T14:22:20-04:00

Our bodies are capable of healing. With craniosacral therapy the body conforms to the touch and facilitates a release, often numerous releases. It is a physiological, energetic release, stagnant fluid release, tissue movement release, a lightening of tension, easing of pressure, a letting go response of the body. Every type of release brings you closer to Optimal healthy Function and Well Being, out of pain, improvement in symptoms and potentially your condition reversal.

How does CranioSacral Therapy work?2018-12-13T14:22:13-04:00

From the interaction of the practitioner to the patient via placement of the hands on to the patient’s body, healing begins. The body draws-in the practitioner to where hand placement begins the session and continues to move from region to region on the head, neck, spine and cranium.

What is CranioSacral / Cranial Sacral Therapy?2018-12-13T14:22:02-04:00

CranioSacral Therapy is a hands-on, manual body work modality that facilitates healing and improvement in the body and head. It was developed between the years of 1975-1983 by Osteopathic Physician Dr. John Upledger and his team at Michigan State University.

Dr. Kaminsky NYC Chiropractor holds many years of experience and is compassionate, knowledgeable and skilled in his approach.

About Dr. Kaminsky & Craniosacral Therapy

Dr. Kaminsky is a 1999 graduate of the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic. He is licensed to practice in NY and has completed close to three thousand hours of professional continuing education since becoming licensed in March of 2000.

The primary approach used in his office is Craniosacral Therapy (CST) which is a method focusing on the cranium (head) and sacrum (a large bone at the base of the spine) scientifically proven to control life sustaining fluid flow throughout the body.

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on manual therapy approach that brings about healing via the fluidity of the body. The existence of the Craniosacral System was first discovered by Osteopath Dr. William Sutherland in the early 1900’s, calling it Cranial Osteopathy.  And later rediscovered, validated, and developed by Dr. John Upledger in the late 70’s early 80’s, who renamed it Craniosacral Therapy after doing five years of research at the Michigan State University, School of Medicine. In 1983 Dr. John, as he was fondly called, established a teaching institute in Palm Beach, Florida, to teach this cranial sacral method to all healthcare providers. The Upledger Institute is still very active today.

The craniosacral mechanism pumps fluid which is produced in the brain, called cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF), through the fascial network of the body, the purpose of which is to lubricate joints, muscles, organs, all cells and all tissues. It is the driving life force for your body’s systems to function properly, CSF also carries healing properties to bodily traumas, injuries and past surgeries.

The proper function of your cranial sacral mechanism, via CSF flow, maintains the normal tone of your muscles, provide nutrients to your organs, and keeps you out of pain. It sustains human life and allows your nervous system to stay responsive to challenges of daily living and your mind-body life experiences. The better your craniosacral mechanism functions, the better the flow of this life sustaining fluid, the better your body can handle physical and emotional stress. The uninhibited flow of this fluid throughout your body allows you to thrive, opposite of survival mode.

CSF is part of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) brain and spinal cord), which is physically encapsulated within the dural membranes of the spine and head.

One of the functions inside of your brain is to automatically generate energetic rhythmic impulses that function to pump CSF throughout your body, regulating your peripheral nerves, nervous system and organ systems, which in turn, sustain your function (physiology) and life. It is an important force that maintains everything functioning in your body. This is what we call the Craniosacral System, or Craniosacral Mechanism. It is the hydraulic, energetic and rejuvenating system of your body.

This measurable life force of moving fluid is palpable to a trained craniosacral therapist, like the heart rhythm, pulse rhythm, breathing rate, that can all be felt, so too can the Cranial Sacral Rhythm (CSR) be palpated and measured. It is the foundational diagnostic tool in real-time used to evaluate your current state of well-being (or lack thereof), and potential for health improvement and healing.

Compromises of your rhythmic impulse, correlates to CSF flow restrictions in the system which the body is unable to self-correct or overcome on its own. This is the reason why over time we develop pain, dis-ease, symptoms, conditions, mind-body disconnect and basically all human physical and psychological ailments.

When the fluid isn’t flowing optimally, your bodily rejuvenation is affected, and this is where the skill of an experienced craniosacral therapist becomes valuable. By placing his or her hands on your body, most commonly on your head and sacrum, for diagnostic purposes, the practitioner can detect, feel, evaluate, and rate the SSQAR (strength, symmetry, quality, amplitude, rate) of the rhythm; then bring forth correction of any limitations with subsequent experienced hand placements on different parts the body during a session.

A craniosacral therapist helps your rhythm reset, restore and renew allowing for healing to take place of the mind-body connection, musculoskeletal tightness and spasms, neurological deficits, autoimmune issues, organ function, many common conditions, and of course pain. Through a practitioners properly focused and attuned touch, your body is facilitated to release channels of fluid stagnation and flow restriction, which ultimately breakthrough, overcome and improve CSR and the function of vital fluid flow.
