Chakras and Meridian Points
Chakras and Meridian points are energy centers in our bodies. They make up the Energetic Anatomy together with the Biofield / Aura. Our physical body is dependent on the energetic body for health and wellbeing.
Before our physical body starts to feel – express less than perfect health, with various symptoms, many conditions, ailments, diseases, autoimmune, etc., it is our energetic system within the body that has developed compromises somewhere in its energetic system. Very likely within the Chakra and Meridian Point systems, as well as the biofield / aura of the body.
The energetic system is driven by one of our major components of the Central Nervous System, Cerebro Spinal Fluid (CSF). CSF is the fluid of energy your life is dependent on. It’s function is controlled by the Craniosacral Mechanism.
Being that the chakras are our energy centers, it is these centers that channel and distribute energy through the energetic body system through meridian points. Our Aura or Biofield is part of the energy system and is our protector / shield.
Dr. Kaminsky treats you with an energy body work system called Pranic Healing and also implement’s craniosacral therapy.

Pranic Healing – Chakra System
Pranic Healing teaches us the methodology of energy body-work based on an 11 Chakra system. There are 11 major chakras and 14 energy centers because some of the chakras have a front and a back energy center, so therefore 14.
Major and Minor Chakras
Chakras control and energize the major and vital organs of the physical body. The 11 major chakras are just like power stations that supply life energy to major and vital organs of the physical body.
When the power stations malfunction, the vital organs become sick or diseased because they do not have enough life energy to operate them properly.
Minor Chakras control and energize the less demanding parts of the visible physical body. The Chakras interpenetrate and extend beyond the visible physical body. They have several important functions:
- They absorb, digest and distribute prana to the different parts of the body.
- The chakras control, energize, and are responsible for the proper functioning of the whole physical body and its different parts and organs. The endocrine glands are controlled and energized by some of the major chakras. The endocrine glands can be stimulated or inhibited by controlling or manipulating the major chakras. A lot of ailments are caused partially by the malfunctioning of the chakra(s).
- Chakras can become congested with less than optimal, unhealthy energy; as well as become stagnant with negative, bad, useless energy.
Cleaning, clearing, and re-energizing the chakras with good, clean, healthy energy helps restore the health of the physical body. It can be done with effectively with pranic healing techniques performed by a trained practitioner.
How Many Chakras Are Known?
How many major Chakras are there? Are there seven or more than seven energy centers? The answer is, “Truth is dynamic” There are several levels of truth.
The first level of truth was revealed to a limited number of people in ancient times, that there are seven energy centers or seven chakras.
- The Crown Chakra is located at the crown of the head. It controls and energizes the pineal gland. The crown chakra is the center of higher intuition or the higher buddhic or Christ consciousness. If you want spiritual protection, you will have to use the crown chakra.
- The Ajna Chakra is located between the eyebrows. It controls and energizes the pituitary gland. The ajna chakra is the center of the abstract mind and the will. The throat chakra and the ajna chakra affect the mental body.
- The Throat Chakra is located in the throat area. It controls and energizes the thyroid gland. It is the center of the concrete mind.
- The Heart Chakra is located at the front heart area and back heart area. It controls and energizes the thymus gland. The heart chakra is the center of higher emotions such as mercy, compassion and loving-kindness. The solar plexus chakra and heart chakra affect the emotional body.
- The Solar Plexus Chakra is located at the hollow area between the ribs and the area behind it. It controls and energizes the pancreas. The solar plexus chakra is the center of lower emotions such as courage, anger, aggressiveness, and strong drive.
- The sex Chakra is located in the pubic area. It controls and energizes the gonads. The sex chakra is the center of procreation.
- The Basic Chakra is located at the base of the spine. It controls and energizes the adrenal glands. The basic chakra affects the physical and etheric bodies. It is the center of self-survival and self-preservation.
The second level of truth is that there are nine Chakras. The other two Chakras are the Spleen Chakra and Navel Chakra.
- The Spleen Chakra is located on the front spleen and back of the spleen. It controls and energizes the spleen. The spleen chakra affects the pranic energy level of a person physically and physiologically.
- The Navel Chakra is located on the navel. It controlsa and energizes the small and large intestines and appendix. The navel chakra is the center of the instinct of knowing.
The third level of truth is that there are eleven Chakras. The next two chakras are the Meng Mein and Forehead Chakras.
- The Meng Mein Chakra is located at the back of the navel. It controls and energizes the kidneys and also the adrenal glands. The meng mein chakra facilitates the flow of energy from the basic chakra to the other parts of the body.
- The Forehead Chakra is located at the center of the forehead. It controls and energizes the nervous system and also the pineal gland.
The fourth level of truth is that there are 12 Chakras. The 12th Chakra is the Crown Chakra it is called the Higher Soul Chakra.
Law Of Correspondence
The eyes correspond to the whole body and this is the principle behind the science of iridology. The hands and feet also correspond to the whole body. This is the basis of hand and foot reflexology.
The great Indian rishis have developed a technique to increase the intelligence of people based on the principle of ear acupuncture. Unfortunately the proper technique for this exercise has been distorted and lost. To understand the principles behind Superbrain Yoga, it is important to explain certain new scientific concepts.
We have Superbrain Yoga, which is a simple exercise developed by Master Choa Kok Sui for maintaining a healthy energetic state and equilibrium in the body. Dr. Kaminsky teaches this easy to do activity in the office to his patients. It takes a few minutes a day and consistency to feel the benefits of this worthwhile activity.
The Energy Body
Clairvoyants, with the use of their psychic faculties, have observed that the physical body is surrounded and interpenetrated by a luminous energy body. Just like the visible physical body, it has a head, two eyes, two arms, etc. In other words, the energy body looks like the visible physical body. This is why clairvoyants call it the etheric double or etheric body. The energy body is called the bioplasmic body by Russian scientists.
The word “bioplasmic” comes from bio, which means life, and plasma, which is the fourth state of matter. The first three states of matter being solid, liquid and gas. Plasma is ionized gas or gas particles with positive or negative charge. This is not the same as blood plasma. Bioplasmic body means a living energy body made up of invincible subtle matter. To simplify the terminology, the term “energy body” will be used to replace the word “bioplasmic body.”
Science has rediscovered the energy body. They have been able to study, observe, and take pictures of small bioplasmic articles like bioplasmic fingers, leaves, etc. It is through the energy body that prana or life energy is absorbed and distributed throughout the whole physical body.
The Function of the Energy Body
It absorbs, distributes and energizes the whole physical body with prana or ki. Prana or ki is that life energy which nourishes the whole body so that it could, together with its different organs, function properly and normally. Without energy, the body would die.
It acts as a mold or pattern for the visible physical body.
This allows the visible physical body to maintain its shape, form and feature despite years of continuous metabolism. To be more exact, the visible physical body is molded after the energy body. If the energy body is defective, then the visible physical body is defective. They are so closely related that what affects one affects the other. If one gets sick, the other also gets sick. If one gets healed, the other also gets healed. This may manifest gradually or almost instantaneously, assuming there are no interfering factors.
The energy body, through energy centers or the chakras, controls and is responsible for the proper functioning of the whole physical body and its different parts and organs. This includes the endocrine glands, which are the physical manifestations of some of the major energy centers. A lot of sickness are caused partially by the malfunctioning of one or more energy centers.
The energy body, through its health rays and health aura, serves as a protective shield against germs and diseased energy. Diseased energy, used-up energy, toxins, wastes, and germs are expelled by the health rays predominantly via the pores. Thereby purifying the whole physical body.
And again, to stress the importance of health, it is important to perceive this concept that, “before the physical body starts to manifest less than perfect health with symptoms, conditions, diseases; it is the energetic body, energetic system, energetic anatomy that has become compromised first.”

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.
Dr. Alex Kaminsky is an advanced practitioner of Craniosacral therapy, having studied up to advanced levels including SER and pediatric courses. He has built a solid foundation with many years of experience, treating babies, children and adults.
