How does Cuavi work?
Why are you here?
We'll give you a brief introduction to what behavioural activation is
and why it works in Fibromyalgia
I'm here because I'm looking for pain relief.
Who are you and what is your diagnosis?
We need to get to know you and your main diagnosis through an initial questionnaire.
I am 32 years old, I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue for 8 years.
What do you miss?
We asked you what activities you miss from your life before you had chronic pain
I would like to go back to doing activities with my children like before.
We find your motivation
This is the core of Cuavi: finding what motivates you in particular. This will be both the goal and the motivation for improvement
Let's think of activities that will help you achieve your goal with your children, for example, accompanying them to school while they tell you the best of the previous day.
What is holding you back?
We evaluate with you your fears or what mechanisms prevent you from dealing with pain in a positive way
I get tired quickly and the pain blocks me.
How does it prevent you from progressing?
We identify the triggers and patterns that keep you from getting out of the pain loop
Walking gives me pain, carrying my backpack makes me tired, holding my child by the hand gives me pain.
How does Cuavi help you?
We provide positive reinforcement and a community that supports you in your progress
Cuavi proposes: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays you will park your car 10 minutes from school.
What does Cuavi bring to you?
We propose small, progressive and personalised tasks to help you progress step by step.
Good morning! Today you will make progress in your goals and get back to doing activities with your children.
Good evening! Today you have taken 7500 steps with your children.
We evaluate your results and adapt the activation plan for you
Write down an anecdote your child told you on the way to school.
To be able to accompany you until you improve your quality of life and become active again.

What are ACT and CBT?
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), is increasingly used for the treatment of chronic pain. ACT and CBT are recommended by the American Psychological Association as evidence-based treatments for chronic pain, including fibromyalgia.
These approaches have been extensively tested, studied worldwide and reliably demonstrated to be effective in improving psychological symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, as well as improving physical functioning and emotional well-being.
ACT teaches acceptance and mindfulness strategies for uncontrollable symptoms, along with engagement and behaviour change strategies to prevent symptom flares, increase quality of life and improve physical and emotional functioning. CT guides people to change their expectations and move from pain elimination to managing and living as well as possible with their pain.
CBT helps people become aware of inaccurate or negative thoughts so that they can see difficult situations more clearly and respond to them more effectively. CBT helps people learn to better manage stressful life situations. CBT often involves learning and practising techniques such as relaxation, coping, resilience, stress management and assertiveness.
