Central Lakes Healing Arts opened in January of 2008 in the Brainerd Lakes Area. In March 2020, CLHA moved to the new studio location at Black Arrow Martial Arts to offer a variety of yoga classes and additional massage opportunities. CLHA is focused on providing quality work with simple, safe and consistent approaches to therapeutic massage and yoga instruction.

Massage Therapy

After receiving certification in 2001 from The Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, Matthew Rohr opened Rohr Myotherapy in Brainerd. Matthew continued to hone his massage therapy skills in local spas and chiropractic clinics which led to expertise in the practice of deep tissue therapeutic massage.

Massage therapy offers relief when other pain management fails and is an excellent choice for people who simply want to feel better. Regular massage therapy combined with a balanced healthy lifestyle helps positively impact ones health. By paying close attention to the body, these highly effective treatments relieve a variety of ailments and allow the body to heal efficiently.

Therapeutic Massage Services

Over the last  17 years Matthews massage services have benefited pro athletes, executives, medical professionals, veterans, business owners, people with physically demanding jobs, and all others seeking relief.

Symptom relief includes chronic headache sufferers, TMJ, hip injuries, rotator cuff, back pain, neck tension, numbness, sleeplessness, and people with high stress lifestyles enabling them to  function at the optimal physical level.

This work is unique. A whole picture of the needs of the person; the activity level, diet, stress, goals and desires are necessary to create positive, long lasting relief. Sometimes intense, these treatments create long term positive change in an efficient manner.

Why is there pain with bodywork?

Pain is present to protect the body from further injury and to let you know that something is wrong.  Deep tissue techniques get into the areas where pain is present and restore balance to the region at the source.
Pain is caused from many places and for many reasons. Sometimes we feel pain in one area and the cause is from somewhere else. How massage discovers the sources of pain is by addressing imbalance in the tissue, reduced mobility in the joints and the bodies resistance to stretch. All of this effort to understand the bodies needs creates road maps to healing.

Most clients experience relief from both chronic and sub-acute pain within the first two treatments. By four treatments a clearer understanding of the long term benefits of the work will be known. Each person is unique and results do vary.  Some people prefer to get regular treatments as a way of preventive maintenance with great success. Others use the service to address certain specific issues.

Call 218-232-5156 to schedule your session. Begin the path to better health, with reduced pain and tension in your body.
