“Here’s a little song I wrote. You might want to sing it note for note. Don’t worry, be happy. In every life, we have some
My name is Solairah Playfair (NC Massage and Bodywork License #4473), and I am excited to be living in the beautiful mountains of Asheville once again after many years of traveling as a health care worker. I have over 21 years of experience assisting people to improve their health and well-being through my work as a physical therapist assistant, massage and bodywork therapist, and now specializing as a Somatic Practitioner for the last few years. For those who are new to Somatics, it means “relating to the body,” and covers many practices and tools related to body awareness, trauma-responsive care, and healing.
If you would like to receive Somatic services but are not able to make the investment to work with me on an individual basis, I offer Group Healing Classes to close friends/family, which greatly reduces my hourly rate for each person. Whether you are looking for a soothing massage therapy treatment, information on how to “Trauma Proof Your Kids,” Chair Massage for your next event, or guided Somatic exploration, I look forward to customizing Services to your Unique Needs.
All New Clients at Triveda Wellness will receive 20% off their first Three 1-hour Somatic Services with mention of this promotion! Also, I am offering 10% off All Massage Therapy Services for the entire month of November!
Somatic Therapy uses the body as its starting point for healing. The word “somatic” is derived from the Greek word “soma” which means “living body”. It is a holistic form of therapy that is grounded in the relationship between the mind and the body.
Somatic therapy offers a variety of benefits. It reduces discomfort, strain, and stress in the body. It transforms negative emotional experiences, creates a greater sense of Self, builds resilience and offers hope.
Feel like you’re floating with a sweet and gentle Swedish massage! This is a full-body massage that uses light to medium pressure and is perfect for those who have high levels of stress. Aromatherapy is a wonderful add-on for this massage.
Reiki is a form of energy healing that can be done with or without touch. The Reiki massage is a great option for those who feel they need to break through energetic blockages and would like to receive a nurturing massage with very Light or Light pressure.
This massage is full-body or focused on specific target areas and uses medium to firm or extra firm pressure.
Requires an add-on fee
As the mother of a toddler, I know how important it is to receive nurturing touch before and after giving birth. I have found that each time I support my own needs, the health and well-being of my son is also enriched, because I am able to be more present and attentive to his needs. I also offer infant massage and somatic parenting classes for new moms and their partners.
This massage style is done in a specialized massage chair and without any disrobing. Chair massage is a great addition to help your employees feel valued, or your guests feel extra special. Whether you need a chair massage for your next bridal shower, corporate function, or birthday party, I am happy to accommodate you!
This is a wonderful manual therapy technique for those who are dealing with pain or radiating pain. Static pressure is applied to target areas of constriction to increase blood flow and decrease pain. The theragun add-on is great for this type of massage. Trigger point massage is often used in conjunction with deep-tissue, integrative, or myofascial massage.
This is a slow, gentle, and often effective manual therapy technique for those who experience chronic pain. Myofascial massage does not use any cream or oil and is often utilized prior to other massage styles.
Integrative Massage is for those who feel that they need a combination of massage techniques or are not quite sure what they need!
This massage class can be done solo or with you and a partner. I’ll go over basic safety protocols, positioning, and massage techniques to help you feel more comfortable with giving massages to your loved ones. 2 hours minimum.
This class covers trauma prevention for children, infant massage, and somatic tools for emotional regulation. A valuable investment for any new parent! 2 hours minimum.
Choose from a lovely selection of blends to incorporate into any massage treatment
This add-on uses a percussive massage device that can be customized to suit your needs, and it feels absolutely amazing!
Exfoliate your skin before any massage and the natural dry brush is yours to keep!
This add-on is for those who are receiving a “Deep Tissue Massage” service
This pain cream has a similar sensation to “icy hot” on your skin but smells really lovely! This cream uses a blend of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, Matricaria (German Chamomile), Helichrysum, Ylang Ylang, and Osmanthus essential oils. A little goes a long way in treating muscle soreness and pain.
Relax, warm, and soothe aching muscles with complimentary hot towels or hot packs available at your request.
A mind machine (aka brain-machine or light and sound machine) uses pulsing rhythmic sound, flashing light, or a combination of these to alter the frequency of the user’s brainwaves. Mind machines can induce deep states of relaxation, concentration, and in some cases altered states of consciousness, which have been compared to those obtained from meditation and shamanic exploration.

I chose the business name “Spectrum Healing” over 21 years ago to express that there are many different approaches to healing. I also chose the name to express my love of diversity, color, and my desire to create an environment where everyone feels welcome, and boundaries are honored. Please let me know what you need, and I will do my very best to accommodate. Also, I do my best to be sensitive to those with different physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or other neurodiverse needs. I understand that some people may be sensitive to certain smells or sounds, require alternative methods of communication, or need extra time. Even though I do my best, sometimes I make mistakes due to a lack of understanding or my own neurodiverse differences. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if I need to change something to make your experience better!
Would you like to examine boundaries or consent from your body’s point of view? How does it feel in your body when you answer “Yes” vs. “No?” Do you have questions about somatics or emotional regulation? Would you like to explore the art of questions? How does your body feel when you ask it what it needs? Are you questioning your questions too?
Are you wondering what movements might help your nervous system unwind? Would you like assistance in asking your body what movements it needs to feel? Do you have difficulty with verbal communication? Perhaps you prefer to move or dance your way through an experience rather than speak about it? This option might also interest Physical, Massage, or Occupational therapists who want to enrich their practice.
Not everyone has time to read “Trauma Proofing Your Kids,” so I’ve made it easy to learn how with this service. As a single mother of a toddler, I know how stressful parenting can be! I’d love to share the Somatic practices, games, and reparenting tools that helped me untangle my body from the weight of the past and get so much more joy out of being a mom!
Do you want to express sounds or words, but you feel like they’re trapped? Would you like to explore relating to your body using sound? Do you have a story, song, or poem that you want to share? Is there a sound or song that bothers you more than you think it should? This option might be the one for you!
Feeling Bored? Feeling Stuck? Is something blocking your path to play? Would you like to experiment with pairing things you enjoy with things you don’t so you can have more fun? Maybe you want to play somatic learning games? “Somatic Play” might be a great option for you or your family! Also, I love to Entertain/Educate Children (and adults) with Silly, Surreal, and “Somatic Clowning!”
How does your body feel when you imagine your favorite colors surrounding you? Would you like to discover how your body feels through art and color? Somatic Art is an invitation to discover and express your inner artist. I can provide canvas and acrylic paints for a small add on fee. This service is great for those who want to have a memorable “ladies night” or somatic group session.
Are you wondering why you have a lot of resistance to something you love or why you continue to think about something you don’t have any interest in? This is an option that may assist you in exploring your body’s relationship to an image, sound, movement, word, object, place, sensation, or any other curiosity.
Would you like to understand how the autonomic nervous system can impact the children you teach? Are you interested in learning techniques to help children access their innate capacities for attention, motivation, and curiosity? The Somatic Teachers option may also be useful for School Counselors, School Psychologists, Administrators, or daycare providers who work with children.
