Craniosacral Therapy NYC. Is essentially the therapeutic interaction between the giver and receiver of care. Craniosacral therapy is a focused, intended and concentrated hands-on light touch corrective approach along specific points on the patient’s body, spine, neck, and head that bring about correction and improvement in the function of the Central Nervous System.

The intention of the hands-on approach is to facilitate the release of physiological / energetic blockages, or stuck (negative, disruptive) emotions and past traumatic events and injuries the energies of which your body’s tissues are holding on to. The traumas need not be severe, but rather could have been very, very mild.

These stuck / trapped energies that are due to unprocessed, unresolved emotions, injuries, traumas and experiences from your life have accumulated and are ultimately now creating symptoms and health conditions in your physical body. The traumas, negative emotions and unpleasant experiences are catching up to you.

Pain, spasm, fatigue, head pain, any symptom felt by you is a direct link from inside your body of negative, unpleasant, difficult, unexpected, and traumatic events / emotions you have experienced in your life that the body has not forgotten. Energy of these emotions are stuck in your body. Your experiences are trapped, as you may have gotten over things consciously, but your body has not yet processed them at the nervous system level.

The focus of care is to facilitate your body to release that which the body has accumulated and held on to, which is now interfering with your life processes, not serving your highest purpose, causing pain and other ailments. Releasing this with Craniosacral Therapy, Somato Emotional Release, Myofascial Release or other in-office techniques, will allow your body to restore itself, heal, and fulfill expression of your best self by expressing your optimal health.

Releasing trapped, stuck emotions and negative energies will open new possibilities for your health and healing.

How Does the Body Heal?

The therapeutic / healing bodywork from a cranial sacral practitioner facilitates your unprocessed emotional / energetic processing release. Once enough releases are achieved, your particular symptom, pain, issue or condition improves. The nervous system improves with each release, and helps your body make physical corrections, and restore the mind-body complex.

The body heals because the physical body is dependent on the state of health of the energetic body within you. Yes, we have an energetic system the physical body is dependent on. The energetic body has an anatomy just like the physical body. You have Chakra, Meridian Points, Health Rays, Aura and other invisible layers of the energetic human anatomy.

When stuck negative energies are released from the energetic body with Craniosacral Therapy the physical body and mind-body improves.

The Body Can Heal at Any Age

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, noninvasive hands-on treatment that taps into human self-healing capabilities by stimulating correction and improvement from a wide variety of symptoms, conditions, dysfunctions, ailments and pain.

The Body Stores Negative Energy

Trapped, stuck, stored energy are unpleasant emotions and physical traumas you have experienced, which carry an energetic charge.

Unresolved, unprocessed emotions and traumas which carry an energetic charge become stuck in the energetic system of the body. The body often does not process to resolution by the nervous system these events and can express its effect many years later and at any time in your life.

Emotions such as fear, jealousy, betrayal, hate, disappointment, etc., trapped in our energetic system can start to affect us physically.

Stuck / trapped energies are simply past experiences / emotions not dealt with effectively by the energetic-physical mind-body, and can be recent or decades old, and they disrupt the function of your body causing pain, most symptoms and many different conditions.

You Can Release Trapped Emotions and Physical Accidents

Craniosacral Therapy can facilitate your body to release these emotional energies, traumas and unresolved experiences, resulting in your physical and emotional healing and maximum expression of wellbeing.

Cerebrospinal Fluid is the Body’s Life Force


Craniosacral Therapy New York offers meditation services

The most important physiologic function of the human body is optimal flow of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF), a major component of the Craniosacral Mechanism.

Looking at our health history, ancient Egyptians used crystal Energy Rods for health and healing. Tibetan Monks practiced Thoba Khujatag, a form of cranial manipulation, the Indian Yogi’s channel Kundalini energy through the spine, the Chinese work with Chi and Meridian points to restore balance.

These methods are all meant to positively effect the flow of Cerebrospinal Fluid, the hydraulics or the energy mechanism of the living body, another words known today as Craniosacral Mechanism.

Origins of Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John Upledger during a research time-span of five years. In the year 1978 Dr. John E. Upledger set up a research team at a medical school in Michigan State University.

After their research on real patients ended with incredible results in 1983, Dr. Upledger set up a teaching institute called the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach, Florida, which is alive and well still today, training many practitioners in Craniosacral Therapy.

The allopathic medical community continues to write-off these results and still today do not embrace this powerful model of care. But it is real, Craniosacral Therapy offers genuine results.

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 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.
