A couple of weeks ago I spoke with Amanda and Mark from the 2 Massage Therapists and a Microphone podcast about my first experiences with massage therapy and how it helped me through my eating disorder to my ultimate recovery. If you are interested in hearing my story, you can listen to the episode below.
TW: Eating Disorders
Please Read Before Listening!
Listening back to the episode I want to make a note of something that was not said that should have been. One of the biggest misconceptions about people with eating disorders is that they are all very thin. This is untrue. Size is not indicative of health and just because someone is living in a larger body, does not mean they could not be struggling with an eating disorder. I wish I had brought this up during my chat with Mark and Amanda as it is a very important piece people need to realize.
If you are struggling with an eating disorder and need resources, I encourage you to visit the National Eating Disorder Information Centre.
