“Dr. Louis Abate is a highly skilled, intuitive, and compassionate chiropractor and healer.  I suffered an incident of severe lower back pain a few years ago.
Since that time I sought help from a variety of practitioners: chiropractors, physical therapists, osteopaths, acupuncturists, and massage therapists—all of whom offered only short-term relief.  I lived with occasional flare-ups ranging from mild discomfort to pain, but worst of all was the constant fear that the ‘big bad back pain’ would return.  The last orthopedist I consulted with specified four areas in my back that weren’t ‘normal’ and would invariably get worse over time.  As a former professional dancer I was absolutely terrified by this prognosis.

I have been working with Dr. Abate for over a year, seeing him once or twice a week.  Not only has my back pain not returned, but also my fear of having to give up my active lifestyle has completely disappeared.  I feel confident that, whatever the future holds for me, Dr. Abate will be able to handle it with his customary expertise, patience, and sense of humor.  This is an unqualified, 5 star recommendation!”

“There are no words to express the gratitude I feel for the support and concern you showed me while I was in the hospital. You are a gifted healer and provided a safe place for me to explore, express and be with myself. You are a blessing!” V.G., doctor.

“Dr. Abate’s support and care of me during a particularly painful and scary flare-up of colitis was incredible. He gave of himself more than I could ever have imagined.  Also, the mental, emotional, and physical effects of his care are profound and are continuing to have their effects.” Michael S., Chiropractic student.

“Thank you for the beautiful and amazing work that you do. I, truly, will always be grateful for everything you have taught me, the changes in my being and belief system, and the profound impact you’ve had on my life. I am already looking forward to next walking into your office upon my return to the states.” N.D., Actress

“He has amazing energy and is a loving, leading light to the people that step through his door.  Thank you for taking care of me.” -S.K., Actress

“I started seeing Dr. Abate about three years ago because of a back injury.  When I first started my lower back was so painful I could barely even walk or bend over.  I started seeing him quite frequently at first, and two months later I was pain-free.”-Justin H., Realtor

“During today’s entrainment I felt like a bright light washed over me and then I started sobbing like a little baby, I don’t know where it came from but I knew I couldn’t hold back the tears any longer. Since then I’ve just felt incredibly inspired and lots of different creative things keep popping up.”-Natalie D., Actress

“He did indeed work his magic! The things that come up and how my body responds is just amazing”-Eleonore C., Day Trader

“I literally feel like I have a new body this week from a week and a half ago. This new body moves with energy and a fluidity and grace of oscillation replacing a sense of effort and having to ‘power through’ things which is how I have been most of my life.One of the reasons which added to my attraction to NYC and certainly now one of the reasons which makes me want to be here regularly and fret if I consider leaving is Dr Louis Abate. His combination of experience with the way he focuses on you and your body is exceptional; the changes I have experience with him go beyond what I have experienced anywhere else. Also the fact that I feel very much that Dr Abate meets each person where they are at, as they are and without an agenda other than your growth.”-David K., Software Engineer

“The discoveries that I’ve made with Louis have been truly life-changing. Not only has he helped me to erase tension throughout my body and understand myself more as a person but after one particular adjustment – I felt that for the first time I was seeing the world properly.  Louis has helped me to ‘let go of the control’ that I was exerting so much time/ energy on and helped me to ‘be’ and enjoy myself, throughout all moments of my day. I will always be truly grateful to him and the impact he’s had on my life.”-Anonymous, Actress

“Not only did Dr. Abate align my spine and cleared blockages…but he helped me externally in my daily life. I was more clear on my decisions, and not tolerating any form of stress or unnecessary drama in my life. What really blew me away is that when he worked on my i could feel the shift, the movement…it was magical (you know the one’s you here in fairy tales!) This really works! This is life changing and everyone should try when they are ready for a change inside and out! Thank you so much for you kindness Dr. Abate!”-Sora A., Rock Musician

“I want you to know how glad I am that we met.  You are making a profound difference in my health and well-being.  I have more stamina, less fatigue, and can sustain myself for extended periods of time.”-A.B.

“Back to Business thanks to Dr Abate! “I gig all over the world and when in NYC I always visit Dr Abate. In a chronic fatigue stupor I dragged myself through gigs and tours as well as relationships plus a never ending haze of “have tos” in my life for the past 12 months. I spent 7 weeks with Dr Abate as a last resort exhausted and depleted. Dr Abate worked with me slowly and for a long time it seemed like nothing was really changing. It was such an effort to visit his office every week. ..until one day it wasn’t. Now I can get back to my global business thanks to Dr Abate.” DH Musician UK

“I thought I was normal! I’m 19 and visited New York with my parents recently and was reluctantly dragged along to see Dr Louis Abate for one entrainment. With years of school rugby injuries, I had recently had a shoulder reconstruction and wasn’t yet fully recovered. It wasn’t until I was back in Australia did my friends comment on how much taller I was standing and how much straighter my back was. My gym workouts changed dramatically but the biggest difference I noticed was that the pain I had felt in my head and shoulders my whole life, was no longer there. I just thought that was normal.” SGK, Publicist, Australia

“If you are in town definitely go see Dr Abate. He worked on me at a workshop in Colorado in 2008 and impressed me with his ability and depth at what is called Somato Respiratory Integration, which is a kind of work, which for lack of a better description, helps one ground and express their emotions through their body. I knew then that I wanted more of this and that ‘this guy knows his stuff’. I visited NYC partially to see Dr Abate, and at that time he also impressed me with his NSA work. If you have never experienced Network Spinal Analysis or you have and are looking for one of the best, definitely make an appointment!” M.B., Singer/Songwriter (Italy)

I was not alone! I’d been a Healer Junkie for years as I was convinced that something was wrong with me. No more. Meeting Dr Louis Abate changed my life for good. Real, frank and relentless, none of my usual side stepping strategies worked with him. I had no choice but to deal with my sh*t – my story. Dr Abate held me accountable to myself in a way that no other practitioner ever had. He was with me every step of the way and it felt like he took the journey with me. I was not alone. Even now back in Australia; he is with me – the voice in my head, the gentle prodding reminder to continue to practice his unique wellness strategies even in the thick of my crazy business life.” NB, CEO, Australia

“[Dr. Abate] seemed to have faith in me when i didn’t. You were so frank and up front that none of my usual side-stepping strategies were going to work. [He] takes the journey together with each client and you made me accountable to myself in a way [no other practitioner] has.  You were like my personal boot camp–my personal trainer–because you care enough to go that extra mile.”  The one thing I definitely got from my experience working with you was that I did not feel like I was taking the journey alone–a journey to reconnect with myself, [one] where I could have felt very alone and vulnerable and terrified.  Yet, I felt completely at home and connected.  And, that’s because you made me feel like you were right there with me.  I was not alone.”-M.K., CEO

“Carrying quite a few extra pounds and managing occasional tightness in my chest, I used to live vicariously through my laptop and my iPhone. The only sunlight my suit and I saw was on the way to the next meeting. I needed coffee to get me through the day and red wine to get me to sleep at night. My brother had a heart attack and that was my wake up call. My wife found Dr Abate’s card and we both started seeing him every Saturday. After 3 months I’ve lost a couple of pounds and the chest pain is starting to dissipate. I’m not looking for a quick fix, I want my life back and Dr Abate is helping me do just that.” Ray V., CFO

“There are times when words just can’t express what’s going on in my life and Dr Abate simply allows my body to do all the talking. It is all too easy for me to camouflage physical sensations with my language and my head but he has the unique ability to recognize where my body is giving me and my suppressed emotions away. “ Maria T.

“I used to fear pain and do anything to make it stop, so I didn’t have to feel it. However Dr Abate taught me how to use pain as fuel and this has somewhat diminished its power over me. Consequently I don’t feel as much pain anymore.” Mary A.

“I had been seeing Dr Abate on and off for a few months and then I lost my job. His work through the ensuing depression got me back on my feet, I rediscovered a stronger deeper confidence enough to not only get a new job but one that paid much more and was more in line with the career of my dreams.”   Alexia M.
“I smashed my shoulder playing high school rugby. Regular visits with Dr Abate assisted my pain management before and after the reconstruction surgery. Now training to be a sports manager, Network is helping me to better understand all those impact and injured spots I’ve collected over my years of playing sports. And this is making me a better coach and manager.”   Sam D.

“In a chronic fatigue stupor I dragged myself through jobs, relationships and a never ending haze of “have tos” in my life for the past decade. I came to Dr Abate as a last resort exhausted and depleted. Dr Abate worked with me slowly and for a long time it seemed like nothing was really changing.  It was such an effort to visit his office every week. ..until one day it wasn’t. I am absolutely amazed at the power of Network Spinal Analysis” Dorothia P.

“I first went to see Dr Abate because of constant lower back pain. Within 12 months not only had that pain shifted but I had moved through the pain of my relationships with my boyfriend, mother and boss. “ J.N., RN.

“I’ve had network with Dr Abate once a fortnight for almost 12 months now. My friends have commented that they have noticed a new sense of calm about me that has slowly emerged over the past year. I can feel it as well. Life in all its twists and turns seems to flow through me now instead of hitting me head on like it used to.”  Maura D., CFO

“I was so nervous at my auditions that I would only do an OK audition.  Once I started seeing Dr. Abate and began to utilize the strategies I was learning in the office, I would go in and ace every audition.  I now have more stage and screen job offers than ever.” -Kelly K., Actress

“Dr. Abate came into our company and showed me how I can have happy, stress-free employees.  We brought him in first for workshops, and now for on-site care.  Our office is now more relaxed, structured differently, and our clients now say they enjoy working with our customer service department.  Our employees have fewer sick days, they are more focused and motivated.” David J., CEO

 

“I was reluctant, at first, when my friend said the wellness care and coaching offered by Dr. Abate would help me lose weight.  I have been obese since I was 12 and morbidly obese since 16.  All I thought was how can he help me lose the weight that I haven’t been able to lose in 40 years?  I have been working with Dr. Abate’s wellness package now for 4 years and I have lost over 200 pounds.  I am literally half the woman I was 4 years ago.  I highly recommend this work for anyone who is sincerely committed to losing weight and being happy and healthy.” Cathy K.

 

“I used to be so stressed out that I would chew my nails down to the cuticle and I would have no patience for my wife’s needs.  Thanks to this care I have the marriage of my dreams and I am no longer stressed out or chewing my nails.” Joe M.

 

“My father was L-shaped and staring at his shoes for years.  The pain he experienced was so severe that he could not walk upright.  While working with Dr. Abate my dad went from being L-shaped to walking upright; from being ‘mean-grandpa’ as my daughter used to say to being ‘happy, fun grandpa.’  Thanks to Dr. Abate and NSA/SRI dad’s last few years were spent happy, upright and pain-free.” Mary Y.

The other day I was walking on 74th street and realized that I was WALKING ON 74TH STREET!  No pain, no discomfort, NO LIMPING.   Merely walking on 74th street.  You are part of this and I want to thank you, Louis and [the] wonderful Network Chiropractic treatments.  So I will buy a pair of tap shoes, get my headshot and resume together and go to an open call. In 4 years I will be 70 years old. WOW! Frank B., Artist
