Manupractic™ (formerly known as Dayana Technique) is an additional technique used by massage therapists. It combines the techniques of Esalen massage, myofascial release, Lomilomi, Qigong, and energy work to produce a blend that brings the most out of the therapeutic benefits of a whole-body approach.


Lincoln Lau trained in massage therapy, Esalen Massage, Lomilomi, Qi Gong, and in energy work techniques. In the late 1990s, he combined them to develop Manupractic™'s unique free-flowing method of work.


The Manupractic™ technique is often used as a complementary technique in massage therapy. Treatment consists of longer and lighter strokes across large body areas. The strokes aim to focus the client away from intense remedial work and re-integrate the worked body part into the experience of the body as a whole.
