Yoga Movement Therapy

Movement Therapy

Some eating disorder treatment programs offer some form of movement therapy. While exercise can trigger or exacerbate eating disorder behaviors, movement therapy helps patients become more aware of their bodies and more comfortable in their own skin.

Some of the benefits of movement therapy include:

A healthier body image and greater appreciation for one’s physical health

A positive outlook brought on by the combination of movement and music

Relaxation through breathing exercises

Acceptance of self and others
