Mind-Body Medicine Research Lab

The Mind-Body Medicine Research Laboratory is a dedicated and comprehensive research program that aims to explore and develop both complementary and mind-body medical interventions in integrative healthcare. The program focuses on various methods, such as clinical and experimental hypnosis, relaxation-based interventions, and mindfulness, to identify, understand, and disseminate effective interventions.

Our Studies

Our research focus is primarily on administering mind-body interventions for physical and emotional symptoms. The current research studies are conducted in part with funding from the National Institutes of Health/National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NIH/NCCIH), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the internal support of Baylor University.
