Ambulatory medicine is a frequent clinical setting where practitioners can effectively apply Mind-body interventions ranging from basic stress management therapies to the sophisticated biomedical instrumentation of clinical biofeedback. Given the rather extensive and growing body of clinical research in this area, the intent of this article is to provide an evidence-based assessment of the evidence underlying the clinical efficiency of such interventions. Such an evidence-based approach can help ambulatory care providers to identify those Mind-body interventions with specific clinical indication so that they can be utilized both safely and effectively in ambulatory medicine.
