Meet Mikal Vega and the History Behind of Vital Warrior
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.
