The Safe and Sound Protocol: Transform Your Practice, Help More Clients

The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a practical application of Dr. Stephen Porges' Polyvagal Theory, designed to reduce sound sensitivities and improve auditory processing, behavioral state regulation, and social engagement behaviors.


How does it work?

The music of the SSP is unlike any other. Designed to help regulate the nervous system through vagus nerve stimulation, each track is specially filtered through a patented algorithm that highlights specific sound frequencies similar to the human voice.

Unfiltered Music

This is an example of the full-spectrum sound frequencies in a typical unfiltered clip of popular music.

Filtered SSP Music

Here is the exact same clip — after being filtered through the evidence-based algorithm backed by decades of scientific research.
As your clients listen to the music of the SSP, these highlighted frequencies send cues of safety to retune the nervous system, which can help them feel more settled, engaged and balanced.

What SSP Providers are saying

The Safe and Sound Protocol is used by thousands of providers to help over 100,000 clients worldwide. In the words of Dr. Porges: "If you want to improve the world, start by making people feel safer."

"Safe, sound, and simple. The level of ease and simplicity that comes with the Safe and Sound Protocol digital delivery contributes to keeping the experience within reach of the nervous system’s capacity to safely engage."

Deb Dana

Deb Dana

"[The SSP] has allowed me to work with clients, children and adults, through a very short period of time and achieve results that normally would take me six months or more. I see trust, I see connection, I see safety being kindled at a level that the therapeutic process can flow without barriers."
