About ABCE

ABCTM has been widely practised internationally by practitioners from many healthcare disciplines and is now being championed in Europe by a group of experienced practitioners who in 2019 formed the not-for-profit association Advanced BioStructural Correction Europe™ (ABCE).

ABCE exists to advance the awareness and utilisation of ABC within structural healthcare and improve the health and well-being of all who suffer from issues related to poor body structure.

ABCE provide seminars throughout Europe for the training, development, certification and support of ABCTM practitioners. We also provide access to high-quality products for better patient outcomes.

ABCE is dedicated to providing the highest quality training in ABCTM and also funding research into the technique and its effects.

A specialised technique designed to address shoulder and neck tension. By employing gentle adjustments and mobilisation, this method effectively targets the first rib, a common source of discomfort and limited mobility.

Only go to certified ABCTM practitioners on this list. We get complaints on occasion that ABCTM does not do what I promise. These complaints are routed to me.
When tracing down who the practitioners are, I find a few common things with the practitioners. Often they are people who took one ABC™ seminar long ago and are now doing… who knows what, but it is not ABC™. There are also people who do not follow the ABC™ directions because they think something else will work better. Some of them are practitioners who never took the course or seminar and are saying they are doing ABC™ when they are not.
We at ABC™ International can only assure the quality of certified practitioners. Others claiming to be doing ABC™ are just plain lying to you. Many people say that is harsh and I should soften the statement. However, it is just lying if they say they are doing ABC™ and are not. I am known for being both truthful and direct so I see no need to soften the statement and allow others to ruin the reputation of ABC™ in this way.
Practitioners who do not continue their training have shown by actual physical experience to have their ABC™ skills deteriorate with time, so please do not go to a practitioner who is not certified even if they say they are an ABC™ practitioner.
People from all over the world hear me say this and show up here in my office to get ABC™ from me and find their issues quickly disappear because I, and the practitioners who maintain their certification (and the ongoing training that is required), perform correct ABC™ protocol.
Additionally, you need to ask the practitioner to do straight ABC™ for you and not to mix other modalities with it. This is the only way that you will know if ABC™ is working. And if you are not getting the results I promise you will not be able to determine the reason.
if you have any questions about the type of provider you are seeing or searching for please feel free to ask us at info@abc-europe.org
