Massage therapist here. It's an unpleasant truth, but the only thing separating you and the "expert" with their thumbs in your neck are 6 months of school (this is true of most places in the U.S.). Have you ever had a massage go truly awry? Could communication (on your part or on their part) have prevented it from being so bad? Keep in mind I'm not bagging on massage. I love it, I really do. I'll ask the "best massage" question at some point. (Photo credit: Cubmundo, CC BY-SA 2.0, via flickr)
