The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)

The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a five-day intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience.  The intervention uses prosodic vocal music that has been filtered to train the middle ear muscles to focus in on the frequency envelope of human speech.  Once human speech is properly perceived, the portal to social engagement has been opened. This intervention was developed by Dr. Stephen Porges and is rooted in Polyvagal Theory.

This intervention can be facilitated in session with Liz or through the Unyte Ils app in the comfort of your own home.  Click Here for more details on the science behind the SSP.  Speak with Liz about how to access this service and what method would best suit your needs.

*Additional fees apply to access the Unyte Ils app.

  • At-Home use of the Unyte Ils app license involves 1 in-office session (1.5 hours) for Day 1 of the listening protocol, and online coaching and follow up throughout the duration of the protocol (completed over 2 weeks)
