This is How The Body Works

There is a Life Force that pumps through our bodies that is produced in the brain called Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF), known as the fluid of life. It is one of the major components of the Central Nervous System (CNS) which flows throughout the body, it controls the function of all internal life processes within the physical body. It is the hydraulic, energetic mechanism of the body as well as part of the body’s self regulatory / self healing mechanism.

We have an energetic system, components of which are part of the central nervous system and driver of the human experience. Our energetic body-anatomy consists of: Chakras, Meridian Points, Energy Channels, Health Rays, Aura / Biofield and other components.

Past physical and or emotional experiences / trauma, from childhood, young adult life, etc, cause functional CSF fluid flow restrictions and compromises within the energetic body’s anatomy, which in-turn, causes physical pain, ill-health, illness, physical symptoms, emotional ailments and a disconnect in the mind-body connection. Daily experienced emotions (stress) and past unprocessed / unresolved events from one’s life, including, unbeknown to most people, their very own, very likely imperfect birth experience / birth trauma, continuing into childhood, and beyond, to current day. All of life’s experiences accumulate in the body, the body stores these events. Ultimately, these bad or negative experiences from colleagues, friends even family become stuck in the body unprocessed and unresolved, creating internal physiological / energetic imbalances / complexes and patterns which eventually manifest into pain, physical and or mental symptoms.

Dis-ease in the body is manifested as the internal self regulatory, self healing mechanism, flow of CSF fluid is compromised affecting the Central and Peripheral Nervous Systems. Unprocessed, unresolved negative experiences and physical injuries create in the stuck mind-body complex physical holding patterns which turn into pain, various symptoms and many common conditions.

Your body’s innate self-regulating and self-rejuvenating / healing ability is literally broken. Not functioning well enough to keep you healthy. You are holding on to too much stuff, both conscious and many events / experiences you may have forgotten because it was too painful / impactful to remember.

Through Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Somato Emotional Release, Vagus Nerve Toning, Chiropractic Care, your body can release all that and your health can be restored, it’s a fact.

Chakra or Meridian Points that are compromised
or out of balance can cause
many conditions, just to name a few:


Temporo-Mandibular-Joint dysfunction is not a problem of the TMJ itself but rather an effect originating in the body.


Scoliosis is a condition of the spine not caused by the spine itself; it is caused by trapped emotions and a disruption in the body’s central nervous system.


Nearly everybody suffers from a headache at some point in their lives.

Back, Neck Pain

Pain is a symptom, a sign that chakras, meridians and or aura of the body is energetically compromised.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is often directly correlated to issues in the neck and deficiency in cranial mobility at the back of the head.


Insomnia results when the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are out of balance.


Fibromyalgia is a condition of unprocessed emotion, the loss of mind-body connection. Causing among other things, many muscular trigger points.

Other Conditions

Dr. Kaminsky takes a holistic approach for each patient’s condition consisting of Craniosacral Therapy, Pranic Healing and other hands-on modalities.

Cerebro-Spinal Fluid – Life Force – Prana – Craniosacral Mechanism

Energetic Anatomy of the Human Body

Importance of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid Flow

Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) is a dynamic Life Force, an energetic, hydraulic liquid life material produced in your brain by the choroid plexus. It is liquid energy (Prana), it lives and flows within your head and spinal canal which is a major component of the Central Nervous System, the command center of your body.

Life Force

The capable healing properties of this G_dly fluid is acknowledged by many cultures and has been referred to throughout the centuries as Chi, Ki, Prana, Ruah, Mana, kundalini, healing energy, the wave, universal intelligence, Spirit, breath-of-life, etc. It is the flowing Life Force of energy sustaining human existence.


CSF flow restrictions form, in various patterns, when the nervous system can no longer overcome negative / bad emotional and or physical experiences stuck in the body unresolved and unprocessed. As a result, Prana is no longer flowing optimally through the body and your physiology is forced to adapt to a less than optimal bodily function disrupting your whole physical being. The craniosacral mechanism becomes impaired, which eventually causes your physical / emotional symptoms and eventually various medical conditions are formed as a result.

Craniosacral Mechanism

CSF flow is the nourishment for the body. The Craniosacral Mechanism pumps fluid through designated anatomical and energetic pathways which maintains active life force the body is dependent on. This is the Craniosacral Mechanism and without it we would not exist. The Craniosacral System was discovered by Dr. William Sutherland in the 1930’s and Craniosacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John Upledger in the early 1980’s.

Important to Understand

The restrictions placed on your body, and mechanism of physical body impairment is directly correlated to the amount of stuck emotion and trauma your physical body is holding on to. Unprocessed, unresolved emotions, life experiences and trauma (mental and physical) all have a negative energetic charge your body is harboring, sometimes for decades. Yes, emotions and negative experiences can leave unresolved unprocessed energies stuck in your physical body creating symptoms and dis-ease.

For example, the restrictive onset and mechanism of impairment in fluid and energy hydraulics can form from past unresolved emotions, physical trauma, concussion, sports injuries, car accidents, etc., the negative energy of which may be stuck in the body creating numerous symptoms and various conditions. Your body is experiencing less than optimal function.

Your Past Experience of Emotions Effect You Physically

To your nervous system, trauma and certain emotions carry a certain negative energetic charge which gets stuck / trapped in the body and causes an energetic disruption (energy cyst, energy stagnation, lack of energy flow, local energetic depletion, congestion of energy, etc.) within the chakras and meridian points that cause physical symptoms, subluxations, muscle spasms, muscle tightness, muscle stiffness, circulation issues, lymphatic issues, etc., eventually leading to pain, then chronic pain, various symptoms, anxiety, depression, medical conditions, disease, neurological disorders, autoimmune or worse; silent killers such as heart attacks, strokes and even cancers.

Physical Birth Trauma

The birthing process can cause a physical trauma that can effect the energetic system early on, ultimately causing physical / emotional symptoms and or abnormalities. Such as Tongue Tie, Torticollis, Speech Impairment, Scoliosis, Colic, Reflux, etc. The very same parts of the energetic anatomy such as chakras, meridian points, aura can become compromised in the newborn resulting in the expression of less than optimal health.

The expression of less-than-perfect health can manifest itself at any point in a person’s life. Furthermore, physical birth trauma can also affect the energetic system and become evident at any point in a person’s life.

Accidents, Falls, Dental Work and Physical Trauma

Accidents, Falls, Dental Work, Physical Trauma, etc can all effect the Craniosacral System in a negative way as these things also carry a negative charge and become stuck in the physical body.

One of the more important factors is emotional state during and immediately after the incident experienced. Another words, many physical accidents have a mental / emotional component attached, and this must be resolved first in order to improve the potential for physical healing and ultimately getting out of pain.


Five of the emotional – energetic centers where negative / unprocessed / unresolved energies can become stuck. These energy centers are also known as Chakras.

In Pranic Healing we work with 14 Chakras.

Chakra Emotional Centers

Energetics of the Human Body is Real

Energetics of the
Human Body
is Real

The father of Craniosacral Therapy, Osteopath Dr. John Upledger identified dampening energies and restrictions in the body, calling them Energy Cysts.

The father of Pranic Healing, Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui defined human energetics in relation to energetic depletion and energetic congestion within the anatomy of the human Energy Body.

We are energetic beings. We just don’t realize how much we don’t know about the importance of unrestricted proper energy hydraulics in our bodies, the uninhibited, unrestricted flow of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid.

This is Why We Have Ailments

In scoliosis, TMJ, headache and other conditions, there are detrimental energetic physiological restrictions your body needs to overcome. A skilled practitioner can facilitate your body’s release of these stuck negative energetic compromises.

Let Dr. Kaminsky help restore your health potential with Chiropractic, Myofascial Release, SER, Pranic Healing and Craniosacral Therapy.

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.
