Safe and Sound Protocol

SSP is a simple and effective treatment that alleviates and supports many chronic physical and psychological symptoms.


 

What is the Safe and Sound Protocol?

Dr. Stephen Porges developed the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), a five-day music therapy intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience.

How Does Safe and Sound Protocol Work? 

SSP uses a specific frequency bandwidth of sound through digitally filtered music and trains the middle ear muscles to filter out low-frequency sounds allowed through in a traumatized person’s nervous system. To mention a few examples, the constant state of anxiety, terror, or shut-down is felt in the body and mind of a person with autonomic dysfunction. After receiving SSP treatment, clinical studies have shown drastic shifts in behavior, difficult emotional states, and somatic disorders through the Dorsal Vagal circuit of the autonomic nervous system.

What issues can be managed or treated by the Safe and Sound Protocol? 

  • Emotional and Social Regulation
  • Depression
  • Focus, Attention, and Memory Issues
  • Digestive Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Hyperactivity
  • Muscular Tension
  • Undiagnosed Pain
  • Chronic Low-Energy
  • Sensory Sensitivities
  • Trauma-Related Challenges (PTSD, C-PTSD)
  • Prolonged Grief

The preferred location is on-site in our Warminster, Pa. office.

Preferably you will come accompanied by someone you feel safe with and who has a comforting presence for you. This helps facilitate the safety that the Protocol is designed to support. Be prepared to make SSP appointments in the evening  (or on days with a light schedule) so that you can easily go to sleep, rest, or nap shortly after completing each session, as you may feel tired from the experience. You will likely sleep extra soundly from the resulting calming effect. Ideally, you will not engage in strenuous activities during the days you are experiencing SSP sessions. This includes anything that may elicit extreme physiological stress, including vigorous exercise or relational stressors, etc. This is to strengthen the calming parasympathetic effect.
