Is it true that I shouldn`t get a massage whilst I`m pregnant?

Hi,
I was given a gift voucher for a spa place for my birthday and really wanted to get a massage, however, a girlfriend who is currently pregnant told me that I shouldn`t get a massage whilst i`m pregnant. I`m 16 weeks so can still lie on my belly.
Am I able to get a massage or should I stear clear of this and just go for something else?
Thanks!!!!!
Amy

Answer: Hi Amy, Thank you for your enquiry. It is fine to get a massage but always inform the person who is doing the massage so that they can advise the appropriate positions for you. Best wishes, Alex
