Somatic Systems, Inc. Doubles Training Classes for 2009

NORTHAMPTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - Somatic Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMAS) is pleased to announce the launch of a second Clinical Somatics Professional Training Program this year. The program will begin December 5, and feature a convenient, innovative modular format to accommodate a variety of professional schedules.

Somatic Systems Institute began a Professional Training Program class in June of this year, despite a weak economy which found many other educational offerings contracting. As various economic and consumer awareness factors have continued to improve, there has been increasing demand for Somatic Systems Institute's training program. The company stated that there were originally no plans for additional training offerings this year, however, the company needed to double its training classes in response to this demand.

The Clinical Somatics Professional Training Program is Somatic Systems' highest revenue product, with a tuition price of $12,000 per student. Additionally, professional training students generate significant growth in consumer awareness and sales of Somatic Systems' other products and services.

Students in the Professional Training Program are trained in Somatic Systems' proprietary Clinical Somatics pain management system. Graduates are qualified to work in clinical settings and exercise and training environments to help with chronic pain, injuries, and joint and muscle problems, as well as help athletes, dancers, and others to improve flexibility and physical strength, agility, and performance. Certification in Clinical Somatics also enables practitioners to work in any of Somatic Systems' clinic locations nationwide.

The company discussed the importance of expanded training classes: Somatic Systems is engaged in a variety of accreditation processes that are expected to increase demand for the training further. Additionally, Somatic Systems is in negotiations to provide Somatics to various agencies and health care institutions that are expected to increase a need for practitioners exponentially.

"There has never been a more exciting time to begin a career in Clinical Somatics. We are seeing awareness of Somatics increase like never before, and unprecedented opportunities arise for expansion worldwide. The world will need a wave of new practitioners to serve this growing demand, and we look forward to providing that," stated Somatic Systems CEO Steven Aronstein.
