Somatic Systems Targets Professional Athletes Through Major League Baseball

NORTHAMPTON, MA--(Marketwire - December 5, 2007) - Somatic Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMAS) is pleased to announce that the company is targeting Major League Baseball as part of its efforts to provide injury relief, rehab, and prevention for professional athletes and teams. The company is in the beginning stages of discussions with coaching personnel from two different East Coast teams to present the benefits of the company's Clinical Somatics neuromuscular treatments for reducing the risk of a number of musculoskeletal injuries such as muscle tears, rotator cuff injuries, pulled hamstrings and calf muscles, herniated disks, ligament injuries, tendonitis, and cartilage damage.

Clinical Somatics is a groundbreaking technique retraining and recalibrating overused or injured muscles through a simple series of hands-on training sessions and prescribed exercises. The Clinical Somatics process uses a series of movements that lengthen muscles and align bones and joints back to their healthy state. These treatments are used with injured athletes, and also to keep muscles and joints in their maximally efficient condition, to improve athletic performance before or after injury.

"This is an exciting opportunity for Somatic Systems and for professional baseball. Players face thousands of injuries each year, hampering performance, shortening careers, and costing teams and players millions of dollars. In turn, millions of dollars are invested in injury rehabilitation and prevention and ways to improve player performance. Coaches are always looking for innovative new solutions, and we believe that Somatics is just that perfect solution," stated Somatic Systems, Inc. Chairman and CEO, Steve Aronstein.

Working with professional athletes is part of a growth strategy for Somatic Systems that includes development of strategic relationships and larger contracts with national institutions, including corporate clients as well as the U.S. military and Veterans Administration.
