Available in nearly 72 million households, WE tv ( www.WEtv.com) is the premier channel for women looking to satisfy their curiosity with fascinating, original stories and entertaining, informative content that is relevant to key stages of their lives.
The WE tv airings bring Somatic Systems' consumer presence to unprecedented heights. Women are frequently the decision makers for household matters such as healthcare options and exercise and fitness programs.
Last week, Somatic Systems also began being featured on financial industry program MoneyTV, including an interview with the company CEO, airing nationally to 70 million homes and internationally to an additional 45 million homes in Europe.
The company has stated in the past that its strongest growth challenge is to build greater awareness of its powerful pain-care services. Until this month, awareness of Somatics Systems reached tens of thousands of people, with no television coverage whatsoever. With this month's appearances, Somatic Systems' current television coverage totals approximately 200 million households.
Additionally, the Health Forum program about Somatic Systems will air at least 50 times, on the Travel Channel as well as in syndication locally in other strategic television markets throughout the country. This week marks the program's second round of airings on multi-million-household television stations in New York-Albany, Seattle-Tacoma, and Minnesota. With the WE tv airings, Somatic Systems now can be seen across the country by audiences anywhere.
The tremendously enhanced media presence is an important element of Somatic Systems' increased promotional and branding efforts in support of its expansion process. The company's growth strategies include a nationwide rollout of its pain relief clinics and retail outlets, work with the US military to provide pain management services, new consumer products to meet the increased demand and additional retail channels to increase demand further, large-scale affiliate and franchise programs, co-marketing, leveraging strategic relationships, new web-based services, and additional media coverage.
About the Health Forum
The half-hour television series, "Health Forum," dedicates an entire segment to showing viewers how Somatic Systems can help them achieve lasting relief from chronic pain, injury, and musculoskeletal disorders without surgery or dependence on medication. The segment begins airing at a time when rising medical costs and growing economic concerns have increased consumer outcry and demand for affordable, effective non-invasive solutions to these kinds of epidemic health complaints.
Features of the segment include Somatic Systems practitioners working with clients to relieve back and shoulder pain, and interviews with company CEO Steven Aronstein and with clinical Somatics practitioners and trainers from Somatic System's Professional Training Program. The program also features interviews with clients about how Somatics helped them out of pain to the point of "changing their lives," and discussions with Professional Training Program students who were so moved by the impressive results of Somatics that they chose to make Somatics their career.
Airing of the television program will continue throughout the coming year, and the company will announce show times as they are scheduled. Those airing schedules will also be posted on the company's website, at www.somatics.org/healthforum/schedule, and interested parties can sign up on that same page to be notified of the airing schedules by email as soon as they are announced.
In addition to the 50 guaranteed airings, networks may pickup the television segment on Somatic Systems for additional broadcasts. The company also stated it will soon make portions of the television program available on their web site, www.somatics.org.
