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.
The program on Somatic Systems will air at least 50 times in the coming months, including nationally on the Travel Channel, as well as in syndication locally in other television markets throughout the country.
