The glass front, 2,500-square-foot ground floor location will include over 1,000 square feet of open space for exercise classes, treatment rooms for practitioner sessions, a small retail center, and Total Somatics™ information center. The new Somatic Systems clinic will be staffed by certified practitioners trained at the Somatic Systems Institute. Because of the global accessibility of New York City, the Company intends to operate a professional training and internship program where students and new practitioners will train side-by-side with experienced professionals.
The Somatic Systems team chose Tribeca, a quiet, safe, and thriving neighborhood in lower Manhattan, because it is the home to great arts, theatre, music, restaurants, celebrity residences, the Tribeca Film Festival and New York City's financial district. The new clinic is accessible by the major subway lines that serve the New York areas of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
"We want this new clinic to be our flagship center, a proving ground for the clinic model that we intend to spread nationally over the next several years. New York will be a great place to increase our Somatic Systems brand recognition and we believe the East Coast is the best location to introduce our innovative pain management solution," stated Steven Aronstein, CEO of The Great Outdoors, Inc.
The Great Outdoors, Inc. will soon be changing their name to Somatic Systems, Inc. and will also be filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission to obtain a new ticker symbol.
