The concept of Interoception and Interoceptive Awareness is being investigated and used clinically by a variety of scientists and health care professionals. Few peer- reviewed studies are found in the literature by allied health care professionals. It may be useful for allied health care professionals to access a paper summarizing and explaining the concept in terms that are aimed for their use. The paper reviews basic science concepts of interoception, interoceptive awareness, models to explain the dynamics of aspects of interoception, and the application to intervention approaches in the allied health professions.
