The Emotion Code Technique Healing in New York City

Truth be told, Dr. Kaminsky prefers the more powerful and effective hands-on care of Craniosacral Therapy. In his experience, Craniosacral Therapy is a lot more immediate and effective in allowing the body to release trapped emotions via a practice called SER, which stands for somato emotional release.

SER is achieved during a craniosacral therapy session administered by a trained, licensed and experienced healthcare practitioner.

Dr. Kaminsky has read Dr. Bradley Nelson’s books and has taken one seminar where he observed the participants struggle with the technique and in his own practice Dr. Kaminsky was very seldomly able to reproduce the desired outcome with patients from the emotion code technique, and as a result, recommends the more specific, more efficacious approach of Craniosacral Therapy.

The Emotion Code is an energy-based therapy that is used to identify, and release trapped emotional energy. Dr. Bradley Nelson developed the Emotion Code over twenty years of practice as a chiropractor.  The Emotion Code attempts to work by getting rid of emotional baggage. Much of your emotional baggage comes from past experiences in which you experienced bad or negative emotions, were traumatized or simply overwhelmed by the emotions you were feeling in the moment.  Most people are unable to fully process emotions as they occur, the emotional energy remains trapped in your body. 

Over time these trapped emotions / energies can interfere with your physical and emotional health and disrupt your normal life. For example, if you have a trapped emotion of anger, the energy of that anger in your body can make it easier for you to slip back into that emotion. Emotions that are trapped can give rise to depression or anxiety; block us from love and happiness as well as make us feel disconnected from others. It’s important to be mindful trapped emotions are made of energy, as is the rest of the body, and thus can exert an influence on our physical tissues causing acute pain and as well as disease.

One of the features of this technique is that it allows us to bring to conscious awareness many issues from the past about which you may have no conscious memory. We access the wisdom of the subconscious mind through a form of muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology) to get the information we need to release trapped emotions. Using muscle testing, we quickly identify, and release hidden trapped emotions, which are unproductive emotional energies from negative past events. 

With the Emotion Code technique, trapped emotions are released by running a magnet down the back several times, while remembering or acknowledging with a practitioner certain events and experiences. Releasing trapped emotions makes conditions right for the body to heal physically, and emotional difficulties often disappear or become much easier to deal with. Some people feel better almost instantly, for some the changes are very subtle and seem to come over time after several sessions. Many people report feeling “lighter” after an Emotion Code releasing session, as if a weight has been lifted from them.

However, if you did not achieve the results you were hoping for with this technique, contact Dr. Kaminsky for a session of 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.
