iRest for the Military
Whether you are an active duty service member, veteran, military family member or professional working with the military, iRest can help you address the unique challenges you face, whether related to adjustment back to civilian life, sleep issues, or Post Traumatic Stress.
iRest is a simple 10-step protocol that is easy to learn and can be practiced anytime, anywhere. Its positive effects are supported by scientific trials and military based research. Many healthcare providers share the steps of iRest with clients who are active duty service members, veterans or military family members experiencing chronic pain, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress, and other conditions.
iRest can be practiced in short sessions of 10 or 20 minutes, to induce deep relaxation and leave you feeling refreshed and alert. It can also be used before bed, to ease your body and mind into restful sleep, even if you work shifts or are sleep deprived.
As an evidence-informed meditation protocol, iRest is being taught and shared in several military and veteran settings, such as through the Veteran’s Health Administration’s Whole Health Program, community based Vet Centers, Deployment and Reintegration Yellow Ribbon Programs, military medical treatment facilities, private studios offering programs for military and veterans, U.S. military installations, and foreign defense services such as the Australian Defense Force and Canadian and British Armed Forces. iRest has historically been endorsed by the U.S. Army Surgeon General and recognized by the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury as a form of complementary and alternative medicine.
