http://pennyomega.com/img/nhpr.jpg National Health Partners Inc. (OTC:NHPR)

Chiropractic therapy focuses on the relationship between the body's structure - mainly the spine - and the body's function. Doctors of chiropractic, who are also called chiropractors or chiropractic physicians, mostly use a type of hands-on therapy called manipulation (or adjustment). Chiropractic therapy is used most often to treat musculoskeletal conditions - problems with the muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.

With National Health Partners' CAREXpress, you can choose from over 12,000 chiropractors nationwide who offer a FREE spinal exam plus savings of 50% on diagnostic tests and x-rays and 30% on adjustments and treatments.

National Health Partners, Inc. is a national healthcare savings organization that provides discount healthcare membership programs to uninsured and underinsured people through a national healthcare savings network called "CARExpress." CARExpress is one of the largest networks of hospitals, doctors, dentists, pharmacists and other healthcare providers in the country and is comprised of over 1,000,000 medical professionals that belong to such PPOs as CareMark and Aetna. The company's primary target customer group is the 47 million Americans who have no health insurance of any kind. The company's secondary target customer group includes the millions of Americans who lack complete health insurance coverage.

National Health Partners, Inc., a leading provider of discount healthcare membership programs, announced the recent signing of two new significant marketing agreements. These two clients provide very different opportunities and continue to expand the reach of CARExpress into new marketplaces.

By launching their own unique internet marketing program, the first group should be able to provide a widespread push into the on-line market to produce an excellent volume of new CARExpress sales into the pipeline. In addition, the second group offers a reach into the wholesale marketplace where CARExpress will be wrapped into other programs to enhance the value of the overall package to the consumer. We would consider this non-traditional business and a great opportunity to expand our reach as well as recognition of the CARExpress program nationwide.

The company plans to announce the rollout of these new marketing campaigns as well as several others over the next few weeks.
