Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)


What Is Safe And Sound Protocol (SSP)?


Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an acoustic vagus nerve stimulator developed by Dr. Stephen Porges based on his Polyvagal Theory.  It is an audio/listening therapy which directly targets the Autonomic Nervous System and supports improved self-regulation and co-regulation skills.


The purpose of this auditory/listening therapy intervention is to help you to access a physiological state conducive to well-being, positive engagement with others, improved concentration, focus and growth in learning and therapy.

By helping to access this calm and grounded state, the SSP promotes a neural platform for health, growth and restoration in patients experiencing the following challenges:

  • Anxiety

  • Inattention and Focus

  • Auditory sensitivities

  • Behavioral Regulation and Resilience 

  • Physical Coordination and Balance

  • Reading and Auditory Processing

  • Sleep

  • Speech and Language 

  • Social and emotional difficulties

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Betrayal Trauma

  • Stressors that impact social engagement

  • Addiction

  • And many more

Would you benefit from a regulated  Autonomic Nervous System? SSP is designed to calm your physiological state, body and mind.
