Important questions to ask before availing pre-natal massage therapy

Pregnancy is the most beautiful phase that every women face. Expectant mother goes through several marvelous changes during the entire pregnancy phase i.e. both mentally and physically. With so many physical changes taking place during the pregnancy, most of women today are rushing towards massage therapy to find some relief.
