All you need to know
Dr. Deborah Ayer ~ NH Chiropractor, Owner
For over 2 decades, Dr. Deborah Ayer has been at the forefront of cutting edge wellness and transformation, reaching people both locally and globally. For 18 of those years she has devoted much of her time joyfully raising her son Bailey and being the sole owner of Wellspring Center for Wellbeing in Dover, NH. Her keen sense of the innate brilliance inside every human being, along with her tenacious devotion to the science and the art of humanity, makes her both a gifted facilitator and an incredible leader. She captures her audience’s attention as a dynamic speaker with the capacity to passionately deliver a message that launches each attendee into more inspired action. Dr. Ayer leads NSA/SRI events through WWS and through private practice. She sponsors students and doctors’ success by promoting the unique learning style of each individual. She has cared for high profile people such as Tony Robbins and volunteered to care for emergency personnel at Ground Zero after the 9/11 tragedy in NY.
Dr. Deb attended San Diego State University Majoring in Biology where she was introduced to Chiropractic and immediately knew this was her next adventure. She then graduated Valedictorian in 1993 from Palmer College of Chiropractic West. In 1996 she moved back to her roots in NH where she was first introduced to the powerful impact of Network Care.
Dr. Deb has learned from many pioneers of Chiropractic and the Personal growth industry. She was chosen to be the New Hampshire representative for the International Chiropractic Association during 2001-2005 where she sponsored and met with congressmen in Washington DC to promote Chiropractic awareness. In 2003, Deb was voted “Chiropractor of the Month” by the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance’s On-Purpose Series. After being certified at the highest level of NSA in 2002 she was asked by Dr. Donny Epstein, founder, and developer of Network Spinal Analysis, to join the International Transformational Gate staff in 2005.
Her voracious love for nature and thriving sustainably has magically guided her to Costa Rica where she now owns property and is collaborating with other leaders in global sustainability practices.
