My favorite:

"As I count backwards from 10 to 1, with each number allow yourself to double the sensation of relaxation. (then a fractination count) and then finally, three, two, one...."

It works. That is why it is my favorite.

Life the arm up, and ever-so-gently remove your grip suggestively implying that the arm is to remain there. Then say "And you can find your arm gently lowering only as fast as you allow yourself to go deeper and deeper into a profoundly relaxing state... (etc) until when it finally reaches your lap (or side) you will know that your subconscious can respond deeply to every suggestion given".

Every word I speak, every sound you hear, every breath you take, will relax you even further.

Bout half way through the induction, and you need no more deepeners.

Solves LOTS of problems.

I like to combine 2 deepening techniques at the same time.

I usually use a brief progressive relaxation combined with deepening by counting. I weave the two together because, the progressive relaxation is very kinesthetic, and the subconscious mind really responds well to numbers.

It might go something like this...

Relax your feet, toes, and ankles, as I count down from 10. Now your calves, shins and knees as you relax down to 9. Etc, etc. etc.

I hope that helps.

I've seen Marc use the 'combined' method, and it's very effective. You can see his volunteers react as he counts. I've used his method in my own show and it's been a great addition!

I like to use the "counting back from 10 to 1" but with the visualization of a staircase leading to a tranquil waterfall or other relaxing scene.

I like to use a combination of counting and progressive relaxation with some confusion.

I like to change it up and at times I will start the count down and as they go down I will jump back up a few numbers

As I count down from 10 to 1 you will allow yourself to go deeper into the hypnotic sleep 10 going deeper 9 etc 8 etc 7 etc total relaxation 6 etc 8 etc 7 etc 6 etc 5 etc 4 etc 3 etc all the tension melting away the mind floating and free 7 etc 6 etc 5 etc

I don't have a "favorite" deepener but I do have habitual ones (such as counting, breathing, staircase, etc) while I try to mix it up and do other things.

If I HAD to choose a favorite, it would be "happy balloons" which is an effect that deepens the experience. It's obviously based upon the classic suggestibility effect of arm levitation and then ties in positive emotional states associated to the trance then arm catalepsy followed by a drop into deeper experience which all together deepens the intensity of the imaginative involvement in the experience quite a bit.

I also love to do the "drunk finger" bit which is both a deepener or an induction and is loads of fun.

Both of those are described in the set (there are some videos on my webpage as well).

All the best,
