As the ultrasound scan showed everything was normal I wouldn't worry too much. However, I would ask a medically qualified person to clear your mind before you start using the oil again.

Pregnancy massage is the prenatal use of massage therapy to support the physiologic, structural, and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus.

I got pregnancy massage during my first pregnancy, and I used The Medical Massage Group in Manhattan. They have been around for 20 years and they have a table that lets you lie on your stomach. They are the only place I know of that gets pregnancy massage covered by your health insurance. They were actually rated #1 by New York Magazine, so I guess you would have to say they are the best NY pregnancy massage.

Pregnancy massage can vary greatly depending on the stage of pregnancy of the individual woman. In general, massage therapy has the principles of being supportive and comforting. The highest risk is during the first trimester, and massage is contraindicated unless approved by a doctor.

There are many benefits of massage. Pregnancy is a hard time in a woman's life and one might benefit from receiving a pregnancy message. A pregnancy message can help lessen stress and lower back tension.
