    Psychologists have become increasingly involved in the assessment and treatment of patients with medical disorders. A new field known as Behavioral Medicine has recently emerged as an area concerned with the integration of behavioral and biomedical science. This development has been especially visible in the application of relaxation therapies and biofeedback in the treatment of patients with a variety of medical disorders. This article reviews the major forms of relaxation and biofeedback, and discusses the current clinical applications for such conditions as pain, cardiovascular disorders, and neurological abnormalities. Future directions for research and clinical activities are discussed.
