Will I be sore after my massage?

Sports massage uses deep tissue massage that can leave the muscles tender for one to two days to follow. It is completely normal to experience some soreness after a session, but you shouldn’t have any bruises. After the tenderness recedes, you will have a new-found looseness in your muscles, confirming that it was all worth it! Because the massage might leave you sore for a couple of days, it is NOT recommended to get a massage close to any important race, competition or game.
