Illuminating Massage and Bodywork

Illumina Sky offers safety conscious in-house Bodywork services in the Black Mountain & Asheville area.

CranioSacral

CranioSacral work is a non-invasive yet powerful bodywork that uses the therapist hands as a tool that allows the client’s body to recognize and heal itself. Essentially, this work involves the soft tissue of the nervous system within the spine. The dural tube and dural matter are the waterproof covering of the cerebral spinal fluid, respectively. The therapist begins the treatment by assessing the fascia and holding specific areas of the body. This is done in a non-invasive way so the body does not react defensively and put on it’s protective armour. After the non-invasive holding the body can recognize the pattern of restriction and self-correct. This is still and meditative bodywork. Some can feel the shifts and changes as they happen but not everyone feels it right away. Often times the effects are felt after the appointment they can be immediate or several days later. As a general rule of thumb, I recommend 3 sessions for 3 weeks as a base. Another series maybe needed at the end of the 3 weeks or just occasional maintenance. Each person is different depending on multiple factors.

Deep Muscle Therapy

Deep Muscle Therapy is a therapeutic treatment that focuses on specific areas of the body. Both fascial and massage work maybe used depending on the situation and what a person’s body presents during the session. The areas that are worked may or may not be where the pain is felt in your everyday life, but will absolutely follow the root of the issue. As a general rule of thumb, I recommend 3 sessions for 3 weeks as a base. Another series maybe needed at the end of the 3 weeks or just occasional maintenance. Each person is different depending on multiple factors. Bear in mind, issues may also be taken care of in one session we simply don’t know until a person is on the table and receiving work.

Muscle Specific Swedish

This can be a relaxation or a maintenance massage. When somebody wants a massage to relax a full body Swedish is the go-to massage. If maintaining bodywork is a goal, Muscle Specific Swedish is a good choice. We systemically go through the muscles of the body and apply Deep Muscle Therapy where necessary.

Thai Yoga Massage

This treatment is as luxurious as it is pragmatic. After a consultation to assess the intentions and needs, Elizabeth will create your Yoga Thai massage experience specifically for you. Each session should reflect the growth and balance so it will be slightly, if not completely different.

The yoga segment begins with a grounding meditation, moves into a safe strength building asana before morphing sweetly into a passive stretching Thai massage to enhance your flexibility. The Thai massage can finish with a shavasana (resting pose), pranayama (breathing exercises), and a seated meditation. Each session will be guided on your needs, intentions and Elizabeth’s assessment.
