Neurofeedback

Jamie_Cropped (1)

Jamie Guenther, Certified NeurOptimal® Trainer

My name is Jamie, and I am a certified NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Brain trainer. My introduction to Neurofeedback was shortly after my son was diagnosed with ASD (autism spectrum disorder). I was looking for a way to help ease his anxieties, help him focus, and help him sleep. I soon found out that many more benefits would come from our Neurofeedback sessions, so much so that I felt I needed to be a part of this. I needed to help others. This is my passion! I bought my first professional system a few years later, and I am now very excited to join the team here at Dimension Health & Wellness. I have provided over 3500 sessions to clients who report benefits from Neurofeedback such as better focus, increased resiliency, increased quality of sleep, relief of migraines, less anxiety, a decrease in neurological tics and stimming, a decrease in medications needed, and an overall better state of mental health.

I was born and raised in Saskatchewan and moved to BC approximately 22 years ago. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my dogs. We like to spend our time in the outdoors. Living in beautiful British Columbia lets us partake in our favourite activity, kayaking, all year round!

It would be Harley’s pleasure to support you in optimizing your nutrition by making choices that are nourishing, sustainable, within reach, and sensitive to your truest needs!
