    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.

    Yes, you should not recieve massage at the site of a recent (acute) injury. If you do it will get more inflamed.

    THere ARE many differnet styles. For general martial arts/fitness upkeep, a therapist who does sports massage and rehabilitative work is useful.

    Some of my favorite styles are shiatsu (hurts-so-good, very energizing) and Thai Massage (think acupressure plus submission yoga).

    FYI - ther preferred term is 'massage therapist' as opposed to 'massuer' or 'massuese'.

    I always thought you sounded like a hippie.

    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.

    Dude, you have no idea. I even have a ponytail.

    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

    Definitely can - you have to drink a lot of water right after the massage to flush everything otherwise you're just wasting your time. Advil or Aleve the next day isn't such a bad thing either, though I'm used to the feeling and don't have to buffer any pain at this point.
