Episode 65: EFT for Fibromyalgia with Lauren Fonvielle

EFT for Fibromyalgia

With Special Guest: Lauren Fonvielle

EFT — the Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as tapping — has long been recognized as a powerful tool for reducing pain, stress, and emotional trauma. A 2020 study showed that a one-hour group EFT session reduced cortisol production by 43%. EFT can also be an effective pain management strategy that can be used alongside other medications and therapies with no side effects.

Since fibromyalgia is a condition known to keep patients stuck in a state of fight-or-flight, it makes sense to explore tools that can help reduce this overactive fight-or-flight stress response.

Listen in as Tami interviews Lauren Fonvielle, EFT Practitioner and coach, and hear how you can add EFT as a powerful tool in your fibromyalgia toolbox. Be sure to listen through to the end of this episode to hear Lauren’s guided “tap-along” session that you can try for yourself!

Key Points

  • EFT stands for the Emotional Freedom Technique and is also referred to as tapping.
  • EFT sends a message to the brain that you’re not in fight-or-flight and can reduce cortisol by up to 40%.
  • EFT can be used for a wide variety of conditions, ranging from anxiety, stress, and overwhelm to physical conditions and can also help with things like limiting beliefs.
  • EFT can create space between the trauma that has happened and the experience or the sensation in your body.
  • When you’re in a state of fight-or-flight the prefrontal cortex goes offline. By reducing the amount of cortisol being produced in your body, EFT can help bring that prefrontal cortex back online.
  • You can be in pain, but you don’t necessarily have to be in agony. You don’t have to have the emotional component.
