when i was training in thailand i got a 1 hr. thai massage every other day (at least) it was amazing.
at $3-$5 a pop it was well worth it.
now that i am back in nyc and they cost $150/hr i stick with the chinatown tui na massage (usually $35-$55/hr) and get them every 2-4 weeks to keep me limber.
i say sports massage, shiatsu, tui na or thai massage are all fantastic and well worth the time and money."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art. You don't truly love your children unless you allow them to get punched in the face." - chi-conspiricy

I am by no means an expert, but my wife is a massage therapist (licensed in NY). She also has a master's in exercise physiology. She definitely helps me with my training. I absolutely benefit from her working with my hamstrings which are somewhat prone to getting out of whack. She also knows some of the best stretching techniques that just aren't possible to do without the help of a trainer.
Deep tissue is not always the way to go. It can sometimes lead to fellings like the flu or a cold supposedly because of releasing so many toxins from muscles. Sometimes a light (I think this is the right term) efflourage is a great thing to help reduce stress and simply help to relax. My wife concentrates on European (Swedish) massage and sports massage techniques.
Hope this helps.

Fortunately, I am also from the south, which makes me part redneck. As such, my idea of a good time is goin out in the woods, smoking pot, hugging trees, and shootin' guns! :new_snipe"You know what I like about you, William? You like guns AND meditation."
