Relaxing without Tensing - Transcript

Settle back comfortably. Close your eyes so you won't be distracted . . . now start focusing on relaxing the various muscle groups, starting with loosening up the fingers of the right hand . . . increasing the relaxation there and throughout the entire right hand . . . and flowing that relaxation to include the right forearm . . . and now, the right upper arm . . .

And now also attending to relaxing the fingers of the left arm . . . the entire hand . . . and increasing the relaxation to include the left forearm . . . and now the left upper arm. . . . so much more relaxed and tension-free in both hands . . . both forearms . . . both upper arms . . . Take a slow deep breath and slowly exhale, using this method to further the relaxation process . . . then returning to breathing normally . . .

Now, while the hands and arms are relaxed, we'll have you focus on loosening up the forehead . . . letting any tensions remove themselves, to become wrinkle free . . . smoothing out the forehead area . . . and flowing that relaxation across the eyes . . . and the entire facial area, including the lips and the jaws . . . much more relaxed, and tension-free in the whole head and facial area . . .

Spreading that relaxation across the neck and shoulders . . . letting the muscle tension be replaced by a greater sense of relaxation . . .

And continuing the relaxation across the chest . . . the stomach . . . and both legs and both feet . . . much more relaxed . . .

Take another slow deep breath, and use this to again remove any last tensions . . . slowly exhaling and feeling that tension just leave your body . . . then returning to breathing normally again . . . so much more loose, relaxed in your entire body . . .

Take three more of those deep breaths, with the slow exhaling each time to increase the relaxation even further . . . as relaxed and as comfortable as you would like to be . . . then continuing to breathe normally . . . retaining the sense of relaxation.
