At age 24, Simon Dove never thought his life’s direction would take such a drastic turn. An aspiring artist, he traveled to Padova, Italy, to sell his art and live with his uncle, a chiropractor practicing Network Spinal Analysis. It was in Italy that Simon received his first training and was turned around professionally, emotionally and spiritually. The deeper into NSA care he delved, the more he realized he was exactly where he was supposed to be. He then embarked on a career as an NSA chiropractor.
Dr. Dove entered Atlanta’s Life Chiropractic College (now Life University) in 1992. His NSA experience further developed in conjunction with his enrollment at the school. He received regular training and an informal education with a local network doctor.
In 1997, near the end of chiropractic school, Dr. Dove joined with “The Flying Doctors of America” on a medical mercy mission to the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The volunteer organization sends doctors to Third World countries to provide medical services. The staff of doctors in various disciplines treated more than 200 people a day, and each person received a chiropractic adjustment.
Yoga became an important role in Dr. Dove’s life, both inside and outside of NSA, and he developed a strong personal practice. From August 2003 to November 2004, Dr. Dove worked internationally within several yoga teaching workshops led by Nancy Gilgoff, where he wove his experiences of spinal health into the yogic disciplines. His objective was to develop a more in- depth connection between the healing modalities. His approach to yoga today reflects this fusion.
Today, Dr. Dove is the happy owner and principal doctor at Fort Collins’ Chiropractic Wellness Center. He holds the highest level of NSA certification and is a certified SRI wellness educator.
