This paper presents a case study of an application of mindfulness and acceptance-based biofeedback treatment for a male business executive in his 50s with a long-standing history of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). There is mounting support for the use of mindfulness and acceptance-based skills in conjunction with biofeedback training for management of psychophysiological conditions such as IBS. The more intention and effort we put toward the goal of calming and relaxation, the more likely we are to get in our own way. This is a case example illustrating the notion that it is through awareness and acceptance that we can enact change.
