About the Instructor, Jana Laird

Jana-webHaving worked in the medical field for a number of years, Jana quickly learned the benefits of therapeutic massage therapy early on. She took that passion into the classroom with student therapists and public seminars. Jana has been teaching since 2008. Recently she was encouraged to start a continuing education program that would help therapists learn how to troubleshoot the human body. Her love for rehabilitation and simply stress relief of clients has propelled her into writing manuals to share her experience. Jana has a strong commitment to her profession and serves on the Board as President of the Virginia Chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association. She has also mentored several therapists in successful business practices and techniques.

The foundation of Jana’s training at Utah College of Massage Therapy was inspired by Ida Rolf Ph.D., the creator of Structural Integration also known as Rolfing. Dr. Rolf presented that the human body is a tensegrity structure that can adapt and distribute movement, trauma and shock throughout the entire system.

Tensegrity describes a structural relationship, the shape of which is maintained by a continuous tensional network providing the ability to yield increasingly without ultimately breaking. The understanding of the tensegrity model in relation to the human body completely changes the approach of a treatment plan for a massage client. This is a common thread taught throughout Jana’s courses that will educate others on how to elevate the massage profession.

In addition to teaching Jana owns DCI Therapy, Inc. in Williamsburg, Virginia, where she is currently seeing clients. If you would like more information on availability, please visit
