The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a powerful and innovative listening therapy designed to reduce hearing sensitivity and help regulate the autonomic nervous system. This process helps build the foundation for awareness, embodiment, and resilience. The autonomic nervous system regulates essential bodily functiong. When we feel like we’re in danger, this system kicks in to protect us by engaging what are commonly knows as the “fight/flight” or “freeze” responses.

Beyond listening, you do not have to “do” anything to experience the benefits of the SSP.

How it Works

The music of the SSP has been specially filtered to highlight frequencies of sound that typically make us feel safe. These types of frequencies can be found in everyday sounds, such as talking and laughter, water flowing, musical instruments, and/or wind/leaves rustling.

Some people’s nervous systems have a harder time interpreting safety on their own. This can include (but is not limited to) individuals who:

  • Have experienced difficult, adverse life events or trauma
  • Live with an illness or injury
  • Have sensory, learning, or developmental differences.

The SSP helps restore this ability by sending “cues of safety” directly to the nervous system, so you can feel more calm, engaged, and balanced.

Who Should Try It?

The SSP has helped over 100,000 children, adolescents, and adults in more than 70 countries worldwide. The SSP may be helpful in reducing symptoms and supporting overall health and resiliency for people seeking support for:

  • Trauma history
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Autism, Hyperactivity, and Attention
  • Chronic Pain
  • Chronic Health Conditions
  • Sensory and Auditory Processing
  • And More!

You may be able to identify when your autonomic nervous system is in a defensive state if you notice difficulties with:

  • Breathing
  • Sleep
  • Mental Clarity
  • Digestion
  • Concentration
  • Social Connection
