)-- On June 5th, 2018, Alice Palmeri, LMT lead a class on positive body image for teen girls. The class was held at Awakenings Collective in southeast Portland, Oregon. The class focused on discussion around what it means to be a woman growing up in today’s culture. The class explored ideas of differing body types and empowerment.
Palmeri stated, “I do this class because body image is a huge part of being a teenage girl. If we can help girls cultivate a positive body image as they mature into women, they’ll develop a stronger sense of self-worth and acceptance that will help them throughout their whole lives.”
The class focuses on girls ages 8-16, but girls of any age are welcomed. The class meets once a week for an 8 week session. The group functions as a class, but also as a support group. Alice Palmeri is a licensed massage therapist in Portland, Oregon where she specializes in family centered massage for teens.
