Massages releasing toxins? Truth or Fiction?

What toxins are released by massaging tense muscles? I have a friend who is training for her massage certification, who told me after she worked on my shoulders to be sure to drink lots of water to flush out the toxins that were released when she massaged my shoulders. But when asked, couldn't tell me what they were. What toxins would be released? Is there science behind this claim?
