Ludovic Maire, France

Latest Massage Therapist participating at the World Championship in Massage is award winning Ludovic Maire from France. The International massage Association has asked him to tell about himself:


I have been practicing as a massage therapist for the past 18 years, honing my sense of touch through extensive training courses in various massage techniques across the globe.

Drawing upon my wealth of experience in both teaching and practical application, I strive to forge a unique connection with each client, while radiating positive energy and fostering a profound sense of relaxation and release. By seamlessly blending Eastern and Western influences, my techniques and intuition merge harmoniously.

– In recognition of my skills, I secured a remarkable 5th place in the Sport Massage category and was honored with the prestigious Empathy Trophy at the 2022 European Massage Championship, hosted at the Château de Villeuneuve-Loubet in France.

– Continuing to lead by example, I have been entrusted with the role of Team Leader for France at the esteemed European Massage Championship in 2023.

– Further acclaim followed at the 2023 European Massage Championship held in Sibiu, Romania, where I achieved an impressive 4th place in the Wellness Massage category and a commendable 7th place in the Sport Massage category.

Swedish massage:

Allow me to introduce the art of Swedish Massage, a fusion of techniques derived from the Swedish tradition. With a repertoire including effleurage, kneading, friction, percussion, stretching, and vibrations, this journey unfolds as a fluid, seamless dance, meticulously crafted in six varying speeds – from slowest to swiftest, from gentlest to most invigorating. Its purpose? To facilitate profound relaxation and a state of absolute surrender.

Wellness massage:

Embracing the essence of well-being, let me present the Wellness Massage. Enveloped in an ambiance of tranquility, three Labradorite stones, known for their energetic protection and revered as the masseur’s and client’s guardian, grace the surroundings. Enhancing the sensory experience, three delicate, handcrafted candles infused with organic lavender from the sunny fields of southern France adorn the massage table. A fragrance of serenity permeates the air, as you are transported to the hills of Provence. This immersive, empathetic massage seamlessly combines techniques from the Californian, Swedish, and Lomi Lomi traditions, with gentle, unhurried movements that nourish the body and restore equilibrium to the mind.

I am educated at:

  1. Wat Pho Thaï  School Traditionnel Massage, Bangkok. 
  2. Old Médicine Hospital, Chiang Mai.
  3. ITM – International Training Massage School, Chiang Mai.
