Baby Wellness Care and Craniosacral Therapy

Baby Wellness care with pediatric chiropractor in NYC. It is Dr. Kaminsky’s most significant patient care. He loves children and enjoys working with parents and kids, offering Craniosacral Therapy and energy body work.

What is Baby Wellness Care?

Baby Wellness Care is firstly an evaluation concentrating on picking up anything that stands out that is already symptomatic or may become a problem later in life. An evaluation to determine if your child is expressing any unhealthy patterns such as; head and neck positioning, leaning to one side, abnormal arm or leg movement, right or left side overdominance, hyperactivity, hypersensitivity, facial asymmetry, good muscle tone, healthy breathing, etc.

An evaluation of individual, age appropriate, developmental milestones, including a physical exam is done to help evaluate the whole child. Most importantly, a focused evaluation of the Nervous System, specifically, the Craniosacral Mechanism is of upmost importance.

The health of the child is dependent on the health of the Central Nervous System, which is dependent on the wholeness, strength and viability of the Craniosacral Mechanism. The focused evaluation will allow for an overall picture about the state of health or compromise within the craniosacral system. Current life force and maximum health potential is measured.

Based on the findings a corrective, gentle, hands-on, craniosacral and light energetic treatment session will be recommended in order to support, correct, or improve the craniosacral mechanism / system.

Symptomatic care

Having a background in Chiropractic allows Dr. Kaminsky for a foundation in the sciences. Utilizing the approach of holistic care in the form of Craniosacral Therapy and Pranic Healing yields therapeutic results for newborns and children experiencing a wide array of symptoms. Such as:

Care for Newborns

The messages from a newborn are much more subtle than are those from older patients. Therefore, craniosacral therapy practitioners must sharpen their sensitivities and perceptual skills. Above all, they must blend and trust and allow, in many instances, the newborn child to direct the correct approach. Working with newborn children is an art as well as a science. Working with the newborn child requires more from the practitioner than does working with the adult. It requires more keen observation and palpation skills by the practitioner, as well as a greater degree of self-trust. It requires a perception based on understanding and examination factors of the newborn child’s current health status, including developmental, physical, emotional, psychological parameters. At a very basic level, it requires the practitioners ability to allow the child to feel safe.

With Dr. Kaminsky care for newborns, babies, toddlers and children of all ages is a gentle, soft approach with a noticeable outcome.

Hands-on Care for Newborns

Craniosacral Therapy and Pranic Healing can be used for wellness expression or symptom relief care of the newborn. Dr. Kaminsky takes a extra precaution in symptomatic care of your baby, and a wholesome approach in the wellness care of your baby, and first and foremost builds trust before the session takes place.

“The little one’s have the best propensity for the greatest potential in healing, and in maximum life expression”.

Motor Development Stages

Movement patterns can be extremely useful in the evaluation of a newborn’s/infant’s/child’s developmental progress. Interference with the development of movement patterns can arise from physiological and neurological problems, including sensory processing disorders. Valuable information can be gleaned from the observation of a child’s movement patterns as they relate to his/her chronological age.

The Craniosacral System needs to be evaluated very carefully to determine if there are any compromises within this delicate system of the Central Nervous System.

Child Milestones of Development

If your child is not performing at the age appropriate milestones, have her / him evaluated by Dr. Kaminsky.

Importance of the Birthing Process

Information about the birthing process is important. Careful attention should be applied to learning the method of birth the baby has experienced. Understanding the process of fetal development and the birth experience with all its complexities is invaluable precautionary information.

Development – Physical, Emotional

Understanding a concept of the neurology behind the “up-to the present time” developmental sequence is also helpful, especially if there were potential “glitches” in the growth / maturation process. What might these glitches be? What do they look like? Birth trauma, a fall, an unintentional scare, a startle, neglect, etc.? All these things are important in helping us to understand, up to this point, what is effecting the child in this way? What are the parents concerns?

The next question is….

What is the hands-on baby care that may be necessary, and “who is” the newborn child is we’re going to work with.

Often we cannot exclude families – mothers, fathers, siblings – when we treat newborns / children. Learning to work with the dynamics of the family as a unit, where necessary, seeing it as an integral part of the baby care healing support.

About Dr. Kaminsky & Craniosacral Therapy

Having a Chiropractic background since the year 2000, Dr. Kaminsky offers many methods of treatment with an emphasis on Craniosacral Therapy and Pranic Healing in NYC.

Dr. Alex Kaminsky

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a method focusing on the link between the cranium (head) and sacrum (the second to last bone at the base of your spine), scientifically proven to work in unison to pump fluid throughout the body, an unknown disruption of which can cause many health issues.  The craniosacral mechanism pumps vital fluid called cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) through the body and in a sense energetically lubricates the joints, tissues, organs; basically all cells of the body. It is the driving force of all your body’s systems of function; including maintaining the tone of your muscles.

The Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord) are surrounded with CSF generating energetic rhythmic impulses of fluid delicately pumping throughout your body’s parts “breathing” the movement of life. This measurable rhythm of moving fluid, like the heart rhythm, pulse rhythm, breathing rhythm is the foundational “blueprint” and primary principle of our real-time state of our health. 

Compromises of our rhythmic movements of fluid flow correlates to the impulse restrictions in the system which the body is unable to overcome or self-correct. This is the reason why we have “dis-ease”, symptoms, conditions, basically all ailments.  This is where the skill of an experienced craniosacral therapist becomes valuable.  By placing his or her hands on your body the practitioner can feel, detect, evaluate, and facilitate correction of these restrictive arrhythmic impulses.

The craniosacral therapist helps your rhythm restore and renew in compromised areas allowing for healing to take place of sensory, motor, musculoskeletal, neurological disorders, symptoms, conditions and pain.  To learn more, visit the other pages on this website.
