Take in a deep breath, let it out, close your eyes and begin to relax.
Now push down with your hands, pressing… Good now stop pressing – release and relax 1, 2, 3. Now send that feeling of relaxation through your entire body, from your hands and arms to your chest, from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, 1, 2, 3. Now I’d like you to slowly begin to lift one of your arms, lifting, lifting, hold it and drop it. Deeper, go deeper, deeper, relaxed.
Once again – push down with your hands, pressing… Good, stop pressing, release and relax 1,2,3. Send that feeling of relaxation through your entire body, 1, 2, 3. Now slowly begin to lift your other arm, lifting, lifting, hold it and drop it. Deeper, go much deeper.
Now slowly and gently begin rocking your head from left to right and as you do that relax your neck, face, jaw. Good, now facing forward stop rocking your head and send that feeling of relaxation all the way down to your feet, 1, 2, 3.
In a moment I’m going to have you repeat the words “deeper relaxed” out loud, saying them softly and slowly, putting about half the amount of effort into each repetition.
After each repetition I’ll say the words “relaxing more and more, fading away to nothing, nothing, nothing.”
After a few repetitions you can relax mentally and easily fade those words away and forget about them for now. When you’ve done that, gently and obviously nod your head to let me know how well you are doing. (Or, When you’ve done that, raise a finger t let me know how well you are doing.)
Now begin repeating “deeper relaxed” out loud; easily relax those words away and forget about them for now. Begin.
(Client says “deeper relaxed” and you say “relaxing more and more, fading away to nothing, nothing, nothing.” until they have faded away.)
Good, now go deeper, and as I count from one down to five let it be as if you could double this mental and physical relaxation.
Relaxing much further.
Relaxing more with each breath that you exhale.
Feeling safe, secure; attending only to the sound of my voice.
All sounds around you only remind you to go deeper.
And you just keep going deeper, you can always go deeper.
