What makes a massage "bad"? What's your worst massage experience?
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.

Lack of communication and a dismissive attitude of the masseuse to the requests of the client.
I have never had a bad massage, but I did get a mis-diagnosis once. I was having chronic problems with my big toe, which began when I tried to kick up into a handstand while doing yoga. A massage therapist told me I needed to soak it in hot wax. Much later, another one told me it had most likely been broken. I've never broken a bone before; I can't believe I broke my first one doing yoga!
