Meet Our MT Ludivic Lopez

Ludivic is a graduate of Carrington College California-San Jose. There he earned his certification in massage therapy. Ludivic was also a group exercise instructor, a private personal trainer, and a traditional Muay Thai trainer. He still actively trains in Muay Thai and currently enjoys road biking and fishing.

Ludivic is highly proficient in providing many types of massage. These include the following:

Deep tissue

This technique is mainly used to address musculoskeletal issues, including strains and sports injuries. It involves the application of sustained pressure employing slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. A deep tissue massage helps in breaking up scar tissue that develops following an injury and decreases tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote quicker healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

Prenatal

This type can help to alleviate back and leg pain, improve sleep and reduce anxiety. We provide specially designed pillows to help position a pregnant patient comfortably facing down.

Lymphatic Drainage

The objective of this type of this gentle approach is to encourage the movement of lymph fluid around the body. This type of massage may benefit those with lymphedema, fibromyalgia and different conditions.

Sports

The top benefits of this type of massage are relieving muscle soreness or stiffness, improving flexibility of muscles and alleviating pain caused by too much physical activity.

Relaxation

Given the stress so many people are under these days, a relaxation massage is perfect for decompressing. This type of massage can calm the nervous system, reduce stress, promote healing and much more.

Thai

This approach uses muscle compression, mobilization of joints and acupressure. It lowers stress, boosts energy, relieves headaches and stimulates circulation.
Ludivic offers both 30- and 60-minute sessions.

FAQ

Is there anything, in particular, I should wear to my appointment?

No. You will be taken to a private room where you can undress to your level of comfort. You will be appropriately draped at all times during your massage, exposing only the area that will be worked on.

Will one of your chiropractors dictate the type of massage I get?

Yes, your chiropractor will be in constant communication with Ludivic regarding your treatment plan. If your doctor determines that your care needs to be altered and a different type of massage be given, that will take place.

Do I have to be a chiropractic patient to receive massage at New Hope Chiropractic?

No, you can still have a massage, but insurance won’t cover it.

Will I be sore after my session?

It depends on the technique used. For example, if you’re getting a deep tissue massage, then you will likely have some soreness later that day or the following day. It’s similar to how you’d feel after a good workout at the gym.

Is there anything I should do before or after my appointment?

We encourage you to drink plenty of water before and after to flush out toxins from your body.
