Now in paperback. A holistic and powerful framework for accepting and liberating our bodies, and ourselves.

“Essential reading for anyone who has struggled to feel at home in their body or to conform their body to external standards.”
—Savala Nolan, author of Don’t Let It Get You Down

Have you ever felt uncomfortable or not “at home” in your body? In this book, the founders of Body Trust, therapist Hilary Kinavey and dietitian Dana Sturtevant, invite readers to break free from the status quo and reject a culture that has taken advantage and profited from trauma, stigma, and disembodiment, and reclaim and embrace their bodies. Informed by the personal body stories of the hundreds of people they have worked with, 
Reclaiming Body Trust delineates an intersectional, social justice−orientated path to healing in three phases: The Rupture, The Reckoning, and The Reclamation. Throughout, readers will be anchored by the authors’ revolutionary Body Trust framework to discover a pathway out of a rigid, mechanistic way of thinking about the body and into a more authentic, sustainable way to occupy and nurture our bodies.
