In a Craniosacral therapy session your body has likely undergone some soft tissue releases and realignment, and needs time to become accustomed to this new improvement. Avoid extreme exercise or activities that tax your energy and healing resources as you are processing, “recalibrating” to move in a new neutral alignment with your body.
Do realize energies not serving your highest purpose have been released during your treatment session. Your body is working to reconnect and improve communications within your nervous system. During a session, the body releases stagnant, congested, stuck energies within its energy cellular network. And as a result, processing by the Central Nervous System then takes place over the next few days where you may feel a particular emotion, have a spontaneous memory and or have vivid dreams. Sometimes there is body soreness and head pain, which feels different from a headache. these are all normal and pass rather quickly, within a few days for most people.
In the immediate days after treatment you may still be aware of your body processing the changes that began during your treatment. Often a new layer of awareness becomes evident and symptoms start to diminish. Conditions, ailments and overall wellbeing start to become a new reality of your health.
After each session there is processing, and after each session you get one step closer to optimal homeostasis and physical wellness. After the second or third session Dr. Kaminsky starts to recommend in-home activities that will benefit the sessions by nourishing the corrective process your body is going through. The more you adhere to the self care, in-home activities the smoother and faster is your healing process.
Specific breathing techniques are recommended and many other aspects of self care are introduced gradually for your benefit.
At-home activities are meant to add synergy to the in-office sessions, as well as offer opportunity for you to facilitate your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Dr. Kaminsky will show you easy to follow components of self-care craniosacral therapy and energy body work you can administer on yourself. The body has an innate ability to heal and stay improved with the right circumstances.
If it is a young child or baby that has received treatment their sleeping patterns can change, so don’t be alarmed if they take a long nap, or sleep through the night if this isn’t typical. Like adults they are processing and improving.

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.
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.
