One of the many things that makes Opal a unique eating disorder treatment center is our incorporation of movement, exercise, and sport into the recovery process. We believe that movement is more than just a means for losing weight or shaping one's body. In this introduction to Opal’s final core tenet, therapist and co-founder Kara Bazzi, founder, and developer of Opal’s Sport+Exercise program leads our discussion about how widening one’s perspective on what movement is can be a game-changer.
