A volunteer is invited to sit on a chair on stage. As you talk to them, they feel heavier and heavier, to the degree that when you ask them to rise and stand they are unable to do so.
As described, your volunteer takes a seat on stage and you perform a 'hypnotic induction':
"As you relax in that chair, feel all energy drain from your body. You are unable to move; you have no need to move."
Stand in front of the volunteer and place your forefinger on their forehead.
"Now, when you feel this your whole body becomes heavier. Your arms and legs become weak. This pressure on your forehead is becoming ever greater. So great that it glues you to the chair. Now try to stand ..."
Keep your finger pressed to the volunteer's forehead. They will be unable to stand.
"Now the pressure is lifted. That heavy weight disappears ..."
Remove your finger from their forehead and let your arm relax.
"The strength returns to your body and you're able to stand. Rise and stand now please
"Thank you so much for your co-operation ..."
