Founder and CEO, Mikal Vega, is a Navy SEAL(Ret) and a 22-year combat veteran. He has personally walked the tough road from trauma to recovery after suffering a combat-related injury from an exploded IED that went untreated for many years. Mikal only realized the extent of his injuries year later when he struggled in his daily life and in his personal relationships as a result of both physical injury and a disconnection from purpose. Through a series of healing modalities that became the basis of his recovery, Mikal realized he could help his fellow veterans and their families with this unique system of recovery.

As we grow The mission of Vital Warrior is to develop decompression centers within close proximity to a military base yet the center will be accessible to all. Each fully developed Vital Warrior Center will provide alternative therapies that address trauma on a brain-body basis. The philosophy is to provide clients with non-pharmaceutical solutions to healing, including hands-on-therapy, knowledge and skills to regaining a re-connection from within through hormonal re-balancing. Veterans especially, suffer from PTS and TBI and often disassociate from their families, friends and even themselves. What they need is a personalized approach to their healing. Vital Warrior’s vision and mission is to help clients reconnect to their lives, their families and their communities.
