The key determinant of whether a client will enjoy a massage therapy or not are the goals of the customer since each client has their own goals for going for massage therapy and some of the various goals include the following: pain relief in a particular body region (like tense neck and shoulders), treatment for certain conditions like a trapped nerve or tennis elbow, some stress relief or just for the sake of getting the benefits of getting a massage.

There are varied modalities to achieve various results and it is vital that the client knows their needs in advance so that they can choose the right massage therapist because massage therapists are not only trained in various massage modalities but they also specialize in different techniques and as such it is good if the client knows exactly what his needs are.
