Patient’s with Some Common Conditions Seen in Our Office

This is How The Body Works

There is a Life Force that pumps through our bodies, it is the fluid of life that’s produced in the brain called Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF). It intertwines the Central Nervous System, Meridian Points and Chakra energy centers of the body.

NERVOUS SYSTEM

MERIDIAN POINTS

CHAKRA CENTERS

Nerve, Chakra or Meridian Points energetically compromised or out of balance can cause many conditions:

TMJ

Temporo-Mandibular-Joint dysfunction is not a problem of the TMJ itself but rather an effect originating in the body.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is not a condition of the spine, it is caused by trapped emotions and a disruption in the body’s central nervous system.

Headache

Nearly everybody suffers from a headache at some point in their lives.

Back, Neck Pain

Pain is a symptom, a sign that something in the body is off energetically

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is often directly correlated to issues in the neck and deficiency in cranial mobility at the back of the head.

Insomnia

Insomnia results when the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are out of balance.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a condition of unprocessed emotion, the loss of mind-body connection. Causing among other things, many muscular trigger points.

Other Conditions

Dr. Kaminsky takes a holistic approach for each patient’s condition consisting of Craniosacral Therapy, Pranic Healing and other hands-on modalities.

Cerebro-Spinal Fluid – Life Force – Craniosacral Mechanism – Prana

Importance of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid

Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) is a dynamic Life Force, an energetic, hydraulic liquid life material produced in your brain. It lives and flows within your head and spinal canal which is a major component of the Central Nervous System, the command center of your body.

Life Force

The capable healing properties of this G_dly fluid is acknowledged by many cultures and has been referred to throughout the centuries as Chi, Ki, Prana, Ruah, Mana, Pneuma, kundalini, healing energy, the wave, universal intelligence, breath-of-life, etc. It is the flowing Life Force of human existence.

Craniosacral Mechanism

Active CSF flow is the nourishment for the whole body. It’s circulation within specific designated anatomical pathways maintains active vital energetic processes the body is dependent on. This is the Craniosacral Mechanism.

Prana

When CSF flow restrictions form, energetics / Prana is effected negatively. Your physiology is forced to adapt to a less optimal function, disrupting normal energy dynamics of the body, the craniosacral mechanism becomes impaired, which eventually causes your physical symptoms and eventually condition.

Important to Understand

The restrictive onset and mechanism of impairment in energy physiology form as a result of physical trauma and or as a result of your interaction, reaction, perception, interpretation and basically self-experience of charged emotions of certain kinds. Yes, emotions.

Your Past Experience of Emotions Effect You Physically

To your nervous system, trauma and emotions carry a certain energetic charge which get’s stuck / trapped in the body and causes a pranic disruption (energy cyst, lack of energy flow, depletion, congestion of energy) that eventually may lead to pain, then chronic pain, symptoms, a particular condition, disease, autoimmune or worse; silent killers.

EMOTIONAL CENTERS

Some emotional (energetic) centers where energy can become stuck. These centers are also known as Chakras.

Energetics of the Human Body is Real

The father of Craniosacral Therapy, Osteopath Dr. John Upledger identified dampening energies and restrictions in the body, calling them Energy Cysts.

The father of Pranic Healing, Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui defined human energetics in relation to energetic depletion and energetic congestion within the anatomy of the Energy Body.

We are energetic beings. We just don’t realize how much we don’t know about the importance of unrestricted proper energy hydraulics in our bodies, the uninhibited, unrestricted flow of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid.

This is Why We Have Ailments

In scoliosis, TMJ, headache and other conditions, there are detrimental energetic physiological restrictions your body needs to overcome. A skilled practitioner can facilitate your body’s release of these stuck energetic restrictions.

Dr. Kaminsky is a Chiropractor with an advanced and unique skill-set, implementing Craniosacral Therapy, Pranic Healing and other hands-on techniques.

Understanding Who You Are

To properly asses your condition an evaluation is needed. “My focus in your assessment is concentrated on understanding where in your body and head, stuck energies / spinal subluxations are lying dormant, wrecking havoc, causing restrictions, disrupting your physical and energetic physiology.”

We Will Achieve Results

The intention during your session is most importantly, to facilitate your body to release subluxations / restrictions it is harboring. Every release brings you closer to homeostasis, re-establishes the craniosacral mechanism and Craniosacral Rhythm.

This creates functional improvement in your body’s energetic system, normalizing your physiology and bringing you out of pain or whatever condition you present with, and closer into health, balance and optimal wellbeing.

Craniosacral Therapy FAQ

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
