Body awareness therapy
BMJ Group Medical Reference
If you have anorexia you may feel fat and think you look fat. But really you are very thin. You are probably unhappy with your shape, and you may spend a lot of time in front of the mirror examining your body, especially your thighs, bottom, breasts, and stomach. You think people who say you are thin are lying. But that's because your view of yourself isn't realistic.
Body awareness therapy aims to help change this way of thinking. It isn't a trick to fatten you up. It helps you understand your body and how it works.
Your therapist might help you learn to do activities and exercises that help you get a clear image of your body size. For example, massage is a hands-on way to get a sense of what your body feels like (whether it's soft or firm or bony). Drawing an outline around your body on a big piece of paper shows you your shape in a new way.
