Massage types, massage modalities or massage techniques? Which is the correct term?

When people refer to the different massage types what is the most used term, massage types, massage modalities or massage techniques. Although massage therapists seem to use more frequent the term massage modalities, it looks like among massage clients, the term is not widely used.

    Pippap, you described very accurately the professional terminology. My question was though about the common usage among clients, regular people.

    Ex: for massage techniques, Google returns on the 1st page a few results for massage modalities.
