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.

Dr. Sara Vargas ~ NH Chiropractor

Dr. Sara believes that every day something miraculous happens within and around you. Your body is one of the finest designs and myriad miracles are happening right now as you read this. This magic is one of the many reasons Dr. Sara wakes up every day and takes great pleasure in facilitating and witnessing this everyday magic in her life and practice. It is with a great sense of honor and privilege that she finds herself back at Wellspring, a unique hub for inspired wellness and a rich community. Here, she continues her passion, which is to awaken the sense, within all beings, that they are enough, that they can find peace and that they can become exactly who they are being called for to be.

Dr. Sara graduated from UNH from the Outdoor Education Program in Kinesiology. She later became a massage therapist at the New Hampshire Institute of Whole Health. Her journey as a healer and entrepreneur began in 2002, opening her own massage therapy and Reiki practice. During this time, she was also involved working as a chiropractic assistant. Dr. Sara was profoundly affected by the power of chiropractic and Network Spinal. She was witness to people coming in with pain and symptoms and then watching them heal! This inspired her return to school to receive her doctorate from Life Chiropractic College West in 2011. While in attendance, she volunteered as part of Mission Trip America (MTA), providing complimentary chiropractic care for the San Francisco Day Labor Program, whose members have little or no access to health care. She was also the recipient of the Commitment to Excellence award. Since then, Dr. Sara has become certified at the highest level in Network Spinal and has had the pleasure of serving in over a dozen unique Network Spinal practices. She also co-owned and ran a practice for 5 years in Berkeley before moving back to her home state in the fall of 2020.

She is married to her best friend Marcelo, who is the founder and lead facilitator of Indestructible Dads. Together, they are raising and homeschooling their two boys who were both born at home. Dr. Sara’s enthusiasm for life and love radiates within her presence. It is with both a honor and a privilege to have her back in NH sharing her extraordinary gifts with our community and the world.
