Have your subject sitting down comfortably in a chair. Then begin:
In a moment I would like you to take a deep breath, then close your eyes... Now... when you are ready, take a deep breath, let your eyes close and relax.
So calm and so relaxed. Feel your eyelids becoming very heavy and feel them melt pleasently into your cheeks.
You're relaxing more and more with each easy beat of your heart ...with each easy breath that you take ... with each sound that you hear.
Loose now, relax. Let a good, pleasant feeling flow down your body. Let every muscle grow so loose... and so limp... and so relaxed. Good.
Feel how your arms are relaxed and becoming heavy. So peaceful, so heavy.
As I raise your hand, just let all of the weight hang limply in my fingers. And when I drop it, send a wave of relaxation all across your body.
As you feel you hand touch your body, send that wave of relaxation from the top of your head all the way down to the very tips of your toes. And as you do, you find that you double your previous level of relaxation.
(Now you raise their hand, then allow it to drop on their lap.)
Now, once again, with the other hand. (repeat raising and dropping their hand).
Your body is so relaxed, so heavy...
