The practice of liberation of cuirasses (MLC) is very surprising. After an operation, many tensions appeared (again) in my life. After a few years, they were always very present. It prevented me from being happy. Though I was talking about it openly and was very aware of it, the presence of these tensions was unbearable and daily. I started the practice of liberation of cuirasses, and at the beginning of my experience I was in control of everything. It took me just a few sessions to feel the benefits. Today I can finally see and feel that my body is better. I feel really liberated and much lighter physically.
In some sessions, I am even surprised to feel a sense of well-being or mild pain, where before I felt nervousness and anger, as well as other vivid emotions.
This method, followed in parallel with other medical techniques, has been of great help and I highly recommend it.
After receiving a news that had shaken me quite a bit, I spent the entire weekend wondering how I would handle the situation. On Monday morning, I felt quite fragile at the perspective of going to work, not knowing whether I would be able to let my personal problems aside. I then decided to practice some MLC movements , for relaxation, and chose simply one tool I liked. Right after these exercises, I remained up on my feet, eyes closed. To my great surprise, I had a perfect balance. I felt like a solid block of lead. The contrast with my previous and fragile feeling of loosing feet was quite stunning. My body now told me “you are solid” and the message was so clear that I felt a lot of strength within me. I immediately regained confidence. Looking back, I realize now that my body was right and that this difficult event is history now for me. I am happy to have lived that experience and to be able to share it now.
I discovered MLC during singing lessons when I was ten years old. We used it as a warm-up and relaxation method at the start of the lesson and before our shows. Now a professional singer, I keep the habit of having two tennis balls in my bag before each performance. It was therefore quite natural to subsequently deepen this experience. I have had the opportunity to test many practices such as mindfulness, neurofeedback, hypnosis, sophrology and many others in order to manage my stress, my negative thoughts and my lack of self-esteem. They’ve all served me, but MLC is definitely the one I use the most. Being an excessive perfectionist and a great dreamer, this practice allows me to find a space of calm inside me, even when my mind seems out of control. I particularly appreciate the fact of getting to know myself better, understanding myself, managing my emotions and my thoughts by addressing directly my body and leaving my brain in peace. These sessions help me reconnect fully with my self-esteem and overcome my emotional dependence. They give me as much well-being, pleasure and relaxation as a massage session would do, even though it is a gesture from me to me.
Félicie is a very pleasant, warm and open woman who immediately made me feel at ease. I started the coaching session with an emotionally charged backpack, a dent in my self-confidence and I felt at the time in a dead end. Thanks to her warm welcome, open mind and methodology, we got to work pretty quickly. We have come to a number of cores, pain points, but especially strengths. The process of working, reflecting and accepting with Félicie has had a healing effect on me. Today I have regained positive energy, I feel stronger and believe more in myself. I am eternally grateful for this.
Meeting with myself…..
To free my agenda just to meet with myself? Evacuate stress and anguish by releasing my protections, cuirasses? No thanks! I would rather go and play some intense Squash for that purpose? And that was the start of an unlikely and beautiful adventure that has brought a totally new dimension to me, far beyond my system of beliefs and my imagination. I never thought I could hold more than 10 seconds without moving on a carpet while focusing on breathing! I never imagined that making “micro” movements releases so much energy. And yet … week in week out, I see a clear improvement in the management of my emotions and an increase in self-confidence that contribute significantly to the quality of my well-being in my daily life. Amazing Félicie, who guides me through the process with extraordinary listening skills, intelligence and kindness”. Thanks to you ! … and thanks also to Nadine for “pulling” me by the hand that day into the discovery session
MLC? What’s more to it than gym exercises on a carpet with a few balls?
Two and a half years ago, a little skeptical, I wanted to test this method with a slightly excessive and barbaric name. I was quickly seduced by the concept, and over the course of the sessions, I became an addict.
More than any “technique” of gymnastics, relaxation or meditation experienced before, this method really allows me to discover myself, to learn how to listen to my body, in a process of discovery and inner dialogue constantly renewed. During the sessions, Félicie’s guidance and the exercises with the tools help me stay focused. It’s a source of both real relaxation and deep physical exercise.
Here's how I see my experience with the MLC:
Imagine that you scan your body from head to toes; it takes three months, one session per week, but in the end most of the hang-ups would have been identified and you come out relaxed, we could even say loosened.
After that you can continue at home with some exercises, those that are most beneficial to you. It’s a great way to reconnect with your body, but not only, in fact it’s also a way to start working on yourself, without going through a psychological review of which we are often afraid!
Thank you Félicie !
I would like to thank Félicie for her coaching during my year in mission. It was a real help for me while facing various professional challenges. The whole process helped me stay aligned with my inner values and dreams and accept me the way I am. Thanks also to her guidance in MLC© (Method to Liberate the Cuirasses), I have been able to let go and take the appropriate distance. Her work has been precious to me at both professional and personal levels.
In the daily turmoil….
Thanks to the weekly MLC sessions, I have found a great way to relax and connect to my feelings within the daily turmoil. The kind and discrete guidance of Félicie have allowed me to find an alignment of body and mind, the right distance and letting go to which I get access for the first time….thanks !
The start of an internal reconciliation
An experience that has not left me. That has helped me become autonomous in taking care of myself. It is a profound and intimate encounter with oneself. It is the start of an internal reconciliation. It is also an encounter with the other in what is at times not very confortable to finally learn to tame oneself in front of the other who is actually no one else but our own other. All this in the discrete den and in the presence full of love, tenderness and joy that Félicie offers like an angel. Never have I felt any bit of judgement at her side. With her, there is an instantaneous autorisation to be oneself and to let oneself safely go in our own personal healing process. Thank you!
