A good massage will sometimes make you sore the next day, espcially sports/deep tissue/physio massages. So from my experience, I cant see it helping with DOMS (also, working an area that is tender may be uncomfortable).
Good massages are worth while though, helps you relax, loosens your muscles and body a bit, work out any knots or tight areas etc... Similar with chiropractors. I find they tend to help in a few ways, I have them fairly regularly.
