Please please please don't write off massage therapy if you've had a bad massage experience! Just like most things in life, you can't please 100% of the people 100% of the time. That really annoying massage therapist who wouldn't keep her mouth shut? Yeah, she probably has 50 clients who love her and are just as chatty. All that means is that she's not a good match for you. The therapist who wouldn't let up on the pressure? Probably has 50 clients who insist he stay deep no matter what they ask for. You get the idea. Those are personality mismatches. It doesn't mean they don't do good quality body work, (maybe they do, maybe they don't) but most likely you just need to try someone else. A really good, sensitive therapist should be able to adjust their pressure, conversation, and even techniques, to accommodate you.
