Affiliate Disclosure

At MassageTherapySchoolsInformation.com, we believe in being as transparent as possible when it comes to the site. With this in mind, please understand that we either do or intend to place ads on the site from various advertisers as indicated by the “Advertise” link on the menu of the site. We will also be listing Google Adsense ads from time to time. You should be able to see these as text links or blocks of ads which have a small notation indicating “Ads by Google”. In addition, we have partnered with QuinStreet, a publicly traded company (QNST) to provide the highest quality database of credible massage therapy schools across the United States. Finally, we intend to add products to the site in the future. Any/and/or all of the preceding may result in us receiving affiliate commissions for actions taken by our website visitors. There are millions of such products on the web, but we include only those that we’ve researched and believe could benefit you in becoming a successful massage therapist. Most of the links we provide on the site to information such as information resources do not compensate us for our efforts.

Our mission is to help our visitors find a rewarding career, and in order to do so, we partner with credible resources to raise the funds necessary to support this initiative. If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact us using the “contact” option on the site menu and we will be happy to answer any questions.
