Staircase Relaxation

(Marshall Sylver)
(Transcribed From An Actual Show)In a moment I’m going to begin relaxing you furtherIn a moment I’m going to begin counting backwards from 10 to 1 again

The moment I say the number 10, you will allow your eyelids to remain closed

But the moment I say the number 10, you will in your minds eye see yourself at the top of a small set of stairs

As I say say the number 9 and each additional number you will simply move down those stairs, relaxing more completely

At the bottom of the stairs lies a very large feather bed and a very relaxing feather pillow

The moment I say the number 1 you will sink down into that feather bed and rest your head on that feather pillow

During this time if I touch you or move you this will only serve to relax you deeper

Breathe in deeply, we begin

# 10, at the top of the stairs, your relaxing and letting go, # 10

# 9, becomming more limp, more loose, more calm, # 9

8, sinking into a more comfortable, peaceful and relaxed position

If I touch you or move you this will only serve to relax you deeper

  • 10,
  • 9,
  • 8, 7 way down,
  • 7,
  • 6,
  • 5 thats fine, your doing perfectly, moving toward that feather bed
  • 4,
  • 3,
  • 2, If I touch you or move you this will only serve to relax you deeper

5, let loose those neck muscles,



2 way down,


2 way down,



On the next number # 1 simply sink into a more comfortable, calm, peaceful and relaxed position

Let your body go more limp and more loose as if you were made from a handful of loose rubberbands



and 1… way down

Thats fine, you’re doing perfectly
