It’s not uncommon for a client to request a therapist based on whether they think that therapist can or can’t deliver deep pressure. For example, a new client might request a male therapist because they don’t think a female therapist can provide deep pressure. Or they may not want a male therapist because they think that therapist can only do massage with deep pressure.
The other thing to consider is that most experienced therapists can calibrate their pressure to suit their client. Good therapists don’t just have “one gear” that they operate in. Instead they can adjust the pressure, speed, and other aspects of their technique to fit their client.
