Somatic Systems, Inc. Opens Texas Clinic and Training Center

NORTHAMPTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Somatic Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMAS) is pleased to announce they have opened a new Somatics center in San Angelo, Texas. The first location anywhere in the state of Texas, this location is a significant move to expand the presence of Clinical Somatics in the middle of the country, where access to Somatics' innovative pain management solution is limited.

The new location will serve as a satellite clinic to provide Somatics treatments. Construction is also currently being completed on a movement studio, which will enable Somatics Systems to offer exercise classes as well. The powerful pain-relief and injury prevention results of Clinical Somatics are attained through hands-on treatment sessions as well as self-care exercises that can be done using videos or attending group classes. Offering group classes in Texas will provide a valuable format for exposing more customers to the benefits of Somatics at a low cost, and to expand awareness of Somatic Systems. The company's expansion plans are based on the roll out of clinics that provide these exercise classes as well as treatment sessions and retail self-help Somatics products.

The clinic also operates as a strategic recruitment center for Somatic System's professional training program, to expand enrollment in this division (tuition for the professional training is $12,000 per student). Additionally, the Texas center will serve as one of the company's next campuses for the professional training program. Currently, all trainings are held at the company's headquarters in Northampton, MA. However, the company will begin a series of professional training programs throughout the country next year, as their national promotional efforts begin this fall through increased television and other media coverage, to increase access to the training but also expand awareness of Somatics to health care professionals nationwide.

"We are excited to announce another milestone for Somatic Systems' national expansion process," stated Somatic Systems CEO Steven Aronstein. "Establishing remote training sites and retail outlets is an important strategic move for enhancing our presence among consumers and health care professionals. We are excited to begin training in new locations to reach whole new markets next year and beyond."
