Safe and Sound Protocol
The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a specially filtered music program that helps us reach the parts of the brain that need regulating for improved function and behavior.
The SSP music is designed to shift the nervous system into a calmer state, by influencing the Vagus nerve, the longest cranial nerve in our body. Improving Vagal tone allows us to feel safe and regulated, which allows for greater social engagement, flexible thinking and improves our ability to listen, to learn, and try new things, instead of having an automatic defensive or fearful response.
By listening to the SSP music, with specific frequencies of sounds and volume changes, we can teach the nervous system, via the middle ear muscles, to filter out background noise and more clearly hear people speaking.
