At Vital Warrior we use Far Infrared Ray (FIR) saunas instead of traditional steam saunas. FIR, also known as far-infrared sauna, is different than what we’re used to seeing in a spa or hotel. Instead of utilizing extreme, and possibly harmful, ambient temperatures, FIR uses beneficial far-infrared wavelength to raise core body temperature. Medical research indicates that FIR is helpful for relieving acute stress-related conditions.
Overcoming PTS and Preface to the Modalities
What Mikal discovered on his long road to healing is that pharmaceutical remedies only masked the root problem.
Realizing that he needed far more than talk therapy, Mikal took the reins on his own therapy treatment. He began working with non-pharmaceutical solutions to healing, including hands-on therapy. He opened himself up to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to reconnect himself from within and transform his post-traumatic stress to a viable strength.
By using a menu of self-paced therapies himself, Mikal has overcome many of the challenges that PTS (Post Traumatic Stress) and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) can impose on an individual. In sharing these therapies with fellow civilian veterans, Vita Warrior can help an individual re-enter life with a renewed sense of purpose and change into a higher, more capable version of the previous selves. Mikal’s personal recovery is evidence of how powerful this treatment is.
The modalities encompass the full treatment and life changes that have helped Mikal overcome his personal challenges.
Myofascial Therapy is a category of hands-on, body-centered, massage or physical therapy techniques which use firm, sustained & angled pressure on specific areas of the body in order to release adhesions, movement restrictions & emotional tensions within the myofascia.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective natural therapy that is used to heal illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. Tiny, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points in the body, where they are gently stimulated to trigger the body’s natural healing response. Acupuncture is effective for controlling pain and can regulate the body’s physiological functions to treat various internal dysfunction and disorders.
Floatation therapy pools are filled with an Epson Salt solution that completely suspends the body in water. It creates the experience of a non-gravity chamber and total relaxation in addition to the medicinal benefits of magnesium sulfate.
Tension and Trauma Releasing exercises were originally developed to address the impacts of traumatic experiences on the body; however, we have come to learn that TRE benefits all people. Hurtful experiences, stress, and tension are part of everyone’s life and we often do not realize how these experiences are etched deep in the mind and body.
Yoga addresses stress mitigation in that it provides tools and techniques our clients can turn to for effective non-pharmaceutical relief. Through continued practice the practitioner begins to develop a resilience to stress eventually negating the urge to react to events and circumstances that used to be triggers.
While Kundalini Yoga is Vital Warrior’s top choice in breathework and meditation, there are other alternatives to choose from to fit the individual’s needs and schedule.
Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself.
Tapping known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) or EFT tapping, simply stated, is an emotional version of acupuncture, but without the use of needles. Instead, you tap with your fingertips on key energy meridian points on your face and body.
Vital Warrior’s last modality offers mentoring as a way to encourage, continue to help and guide an individual with their progress and development.
