About the Center

Bozeman Center for the Healing Arts, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Paola Feher. The Center specializes in injury rehabilitation and in relief of long-term and unresolved cases of pain and discomfort. Corrective massage is the primary tool used to address patients' concerns while movement therapy, biomechanic evaluation, nutritional and lifestyle counseling may be used as adjunct treatments to optimize patient well-being. Using these non-invasive techniques, the Center has had great success in relieving pain quickly and permanently, enabling patients' return to everyday activities.


The Center is accredited by the Yoga Alliance to train and certify yoga teachers. To date, 14 certified teachers have graduated from the Center. All teachers are trained with a strong background in anatomy and in the mechanics of movement. The style of yoga taught at the Center is greatly influenced by the teachings of TKV Desikachar. This tradition emphasizes the fundamental importance of breath in the overall health of the individual and also the necessity of adapting the teaching to the individual needs of the students, taking into consideration any illnesses or injuries.

The Center has been involved in the successful resolution of a variety of pain management cases including, but not limited to, the following conditions:

  • Headaches and cluster migraines

  • TMJ

  • Head and neck injuries

  • Rotator cuff issues

  • Bursitis, tendonitis and arthitic pain in joints throughout the body

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Tennis elbow

  • C-section and other abdominal surgery scar tissue

  • Lower back, hip and pelvic disorders

  • Scoliosis

  • Sciatic pain

  • Patellar tendonits

  • Knee pain from inflammation, impact and over use

  • Shin splints

I cannot thank [Paola] enough for the time [she] took with me while on vacation in Tavarua, Fiji.


Surfing Cloudbreak, I reinjured my back and was in immense pain. I have been blessed over the years to train with U.S. Olympic and NFL coaches and physicians who helped me rebuild my back from a previous injury without surgery.  


In our one hour together, you helped me unlock my back and relieve my pain.  It is obvious that you have a tremendous knowledge of what you do, as well as a gifted diagnostic mind.


It is most apparent that you truly care about your patients. Thanks for keeping me in the water.
