Body Massage Therapy for Teenage Girls in Texas
After years of battling anorexia and bulimia, a 15-year-old girl is finally receiving the treatment she’s been waiting for.
The 15-yr-old, who goes by the name of Kaleigh, had been struggling with body image issues and was at a disadvantage due to her gender identity.
Her parents were concerned about her weight and were concerned for her health, so they contacted an online body massager service.
The teen was prescribed a massage therapist, a massager that helps you touch your body and body parts, and a body lotion that helps relax and calm you.
Kaleigh is a part of a small group of girls who are now being trained to be able to do the same.
“I was really excited when I got the call, and I just wanted to get it done,” said Kaleigh’s mother, Michelle.
“It’s just been so hard for me to understand that she’s actually able to be a part [of this] and that they’ve done all this research and put all this work in, and they’re able to make her feel like she can be a normal teenager.”
Michelle says she is also excited to see her daughter start doing yoga and reading a book about yoga and how to take care of your body.
Kacey was diagnosed with anorexia a year ago and was given a diagnosis of bulimic disorder, an eating disorder, and was also diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, a disorder that causes self-injury and eating disorders.
Michelle and her husband were also worried about Kaleigh as she was not able to find any therapists that would work with her.
“She was really shy, she was very quiet, she had trouble talking, and that was a huge problem,” Michelle said.
“So we were hoping that if we could find a therapist that would help her, that she would feel comfortable, but unfortunately, they were not able.”
Kaleigh says that she is able to relax and get her mind in the right place by practicing yoga and writing poetry.
The family says that the yoga and poetry classes help her to learn new yoga poses and improve her yoga posture.
Michelle says that Kaleigh now has a new hobby and a new relationship.
She says that her daughter is a “really strong person,” and that her mother believes she is “getting her life back.”
“She’s really confident, she’s really happy, she really loves her family, and she loves being with her friends,” Michelle explained.
“We’re just so happy that she can finally do it, and to see what she’s doing, it’s incredible to see how far she’s come,” she added.
