Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) in Calgary

The SSP, which is based on Porges’ Polyvagal Theory (PVT), uses music, with a customized titration of frequencies (attuned to the frequency of safety), in order to rewire our autonomic nervous system (ANS). This training allows us to more readily access our state of safety, and to respond appropriately to information from the environment.

The SSP has been shown to help with the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Inattention and Focus
  • Auditory sensitivities
  • Behavioral Regulation and Resilience
  • Coordination and Balance
  • Reading and Auditory Processing
  • Sleep
  • Speech and Language
  • Social and emotional difficulties
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Stressors that impact social engagement
