Insomnia Treatment in New York City

According to the National Sleep Foundation 1 in 5 Americans is sleep deprived and the CDC recognizes sleep disturbance as a public health epidemic.  If you have insomnia you know how difficult it is to just function throughout the day.   Sleep affects every tissue in our bodies. When your body does not have a good night sleep it will effect your stress level,  hormones, appetite, immune system, and more. Fortunately insomnia treatment is available in New York City with Dr. Kaminsky’s Craniosacral Therapy..

Sleep is typically a time when the body heals itself as sleep is restorative where blood pressure declines, breathing slows, blood flows to the muscles and tissues are repaired.  A  study on insomnia treatment  published in the Journal of Integrative Medicine found Craniosacral therapy could help regulate the autonomic nervous system, part of the body responsible for our ability to rest and respond to stress. In that study Wanda Girsberger, a craniosacral therapist in Zurich, Switzerland states “By regulating the patients autonomic nervous system through craniosacral therapy, the patient’s body could enhance its functions in digestion, relaxation and aid in the supply of cerebral-spinal fluid providing more oxygen to the brain supporting clear thinking”. The regulation of our autonomic nervous system is mandatory for our health…the interplay of activity and relaxation allows us to grow, heal, regulate our moods, and more.

Craniosacral therapy also effects the Pineal gland (located in the vertebrate brain between the left and right hemispheres). The pineal gland’s primary function is to secrete Melatonin the hormone responsible for regulating our biological clock and sleep wake cycles.  Lastly Craniosacral Therapy helps to promote sleep by deactivating what is known as our bodies “Reticular Alarm System”. The Reticular Alarm System is a set of connected nuclei found in the brain that is responsible for regulating our sleep-wake transitions.    Dr. Kaminsky releases these pressures and improves the efficiency of fluid outflow at the occipital-cranial base (base of the skull).  When successfully applied, insomnia significantly subsides.

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.  To learn more, visit the other pages on this website.
