ABSTRACT

Introduction The intangible reciprocal relationship between body and mind is a key element in the treatment of body image disturbance in clients with eating disorders. Body and mind are interrelated parts that form a cohesive whole. Our body movements are influenced by our thoughts, attitudes, and feelings, just as our thoughts, attitudes, and feelings are influenced by the rhythm and movements of the body (Rice, Hardenbergh, & Hornyak, 1989).
