“The quest for safety is the basis for leading a successful life”

Dr. Steven Porges

Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a five-day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. Based on Dr. Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, by calming the physiological and emotional state, the door is opened for improved communication and more successful therapy.

The SSP is a research-based therapy showing significant results in just five days in the following areas:

  • Social and emotional difficulties

  • Auditory sensitivities

  • Anxiety and trauma related challenges

  • Inattention

  • Stressors that impact social engagement


By listening to specially mastered music through bone conduction headphones, the SAFE AND SOUND protocol resets the middle ear to the range of frequencies that mammals use for social engagement, which are at a higher frequency band than that which is used for threat monitoring (imagine the sound of an approaching predator). Reseting the ear for sensitivity to these social engagement frequencies concurrently resets our foundational neurology away from protective vigilance. We experience this vigilance in a myriad of ways that are related to an ongoing feeling of being unsafe, and which express as reactive anxiety and/or anger.
