Massage done well is far more useful than NSAIDS or ice (you want to reduce circulation?!). Any knots you have can get worked out and IME they don't tend to come back if the massages are at least once a week and you do at least 15-20 minutes easy spinning at the end of your rides.

I've found that good massage loosens the muscles better than stretching (too much tension involved) and afterwards you're nice and relaxed, sleep better too.
