Talon Reach Foundation’s Eagle Regeneration Program is a 5-day systematic approach to healing using holistic methods to promote change in thought process and self-care. The participants are active duty and veteran Special Operations members that have suffered mental, moral and physical injuries sustained in training and combat while serving in the U.S. military. We call our participants “Eagles”.
Each morning begins with a breathe, move, meditate practice to promote activation of the parasympathetic nervous system. Throughout the week the Eagles are educated on Operator Syndrome, the autonomic nervous system, how to change thought patterns and their inner pharmacy which is what we can do as individuals to help ourselves in our healing journey. During the program this education is accompanied by recreational therapy, and outdoor activities to
distract the mind to promote healing. Each evening is concluded by introducing different practices to deregulate the sympathetic nervous before sleep.
After the Eagles complete Eagle Regeneration, we continue with our follow-through program thanks to our partnership with Harvard Med Tech. During Eagle Regeneration the Eagles are introduced to Harvard Med Tech’s Vx Therapy which uses a dual approach of VR headsets and weekly consultations with mental health clinicians to improve pain, anxiety, depression, and sleep through changing thought patterns. This program lasts 3 to 6 months based on the individual’s needs and goals.
