About Dr. Kaminsky & Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy is a treatment focusing on the link between the cranium (or head), and sacrum (the bone at the base of your spine). For over 100 years various forms of cranial manipulation have been used to treat pain, from headaches and ear infections to neck pain, back pain, scoliosis, torticollis, and nervous system disorders. Simply put Craniosacral Therapy is a light-touch treatment focused on optimizing your own internal healing systems to alleviate a range of sensory, motor or neurological pain and disorders.
All of us have a natural and built-in life force that generates rhythmic impulses delicately moving throughout our body’s tissues and “breathing” the motion of life. These rhythms comprise the “blueprint” and fundamental ordering principles of our body and mind, all leading up to our state of health. However within the body restrictions of our rhythmic impulses can develop the body is unable to overcome on its own. This is where trained and sensitive hands can detect these impulses (and restrictions) by palpation (examining by touch for the purpose of diagnosing disease, illness and or the source of pain).
Dr. Alex Kaminsky is trained and skilled at feeling the delicate impulses and areas of restriction in the skull, spine, sacrum, joints and muscles and making the adjustments to optimize and bring flow to the body’s self-correcting mechanisms (the rhythm of your natural life force). The body can heal itself if it is brought back into a healing state with a conscious intention to unwind and reduce the restriction of nerve transmission, flow of vital fluids and then symptoms of pain and discomfort (or releasing trauma and stress patterns). By applying craniosacral therapy to the head, spine, and other parts of the body Dr. Alex Kaminsky can unblock existing restrictions and release points of tension – thereby improving the functioning of your central nervous system.
