#73 - Embodiment for Fat Folks with Melanie Losacco
Show Notes

This week, we’re talking to Melanie Losacco about embodiment practices for fat folks!

Melanie (she/hers) draws on her lived experience as a fat person as well as her professional background as a trauma informed somatic coach to help fat folx  become more embodied. Outside of work she fills her days mom-ing, laughing with friends, binging trashy tv and plotting ways to continue smashing the system. 

We had an amazing conversation with Melanie  about...

  • how feminism is often missing the weight stigma lens 
  • the problems with blank slate therapy 
  • what somatic experiencing even is
  • why being present in your body can be hard 
  • how embodiment was a turning point in her own relationship with her body
  • why embodiment is different for fat folks & folks in other marginalized bodies
  • and what providers can do to better support their fat clients.
