@turkay1-- I get massages regularly too. You're right, deep tissue massage does cause some soreness. But it shouldn't really last more than a day.
I highly recommend a bath or shower after massage to relax and soften muscles. Hot and cold water therapy is really great too. Especially if any damage has been done during the massage. This is a technique that body builders use all the time when they're sore from working out.
What you basically do is take a shower with hot water first, followed by cold water, then hot water again. Each should last between 3-5 minutes before switching. This improves circulation and speeds up recovery time. And you don't need to go from scorching hot to ice cold water suddenly. You should cool it down slowly and vice versa.
