Massage during pregnancy

A friend gave me a spa-voucher for a full-body massage. Someone has told me that it is not safe to go for a massage during pregnancy. Any truth in it? I am 7/8 weeks pregnant.

Massage is fine but be careful about the oils used. Tell the masseur that you are pregnant and they should stick to bland oils.
