The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an evidence-based listening therapy
designed to reduce sound sensitivities and improve auditory processing,
behavioral state regulation, and social engagement behaviors through filtered

As a practical application of Polyvagal Theory, the SSP acts as a non-invasive,
acoustic vagal nerve stimulator, helping to retune the nervous system to better
support connection, collaboration, and resilience.

The SSP involves listening to specially filtered music through headphones
alongside a provider in person or remotely. Suitable for children and adults, the
SSP has demonstrated benefits for individuals with trauma, anxiety, sensory
processing differences, and more.

Highlights of the SSP:

  • A 5-hour auditory intervention developed and patented by Dr. Stephen
    Porges, author of the Polyvagal Theory.
  • Designed to reduce sound sensitivity, and improve auditory processing and
    behavioral state regulation.
  • Activates the client’s social engagement system, helping to accelerate and
    enhance therapeutic outcomes.
  • Supports physiological state regulation, allowing for greater resilience.

Polyvagal Theory: the Science of Feeling Safe

Developed by world-renowned researcher and Unyte’s Chief Scientific Advisor,
Dr. Stephen Porges, Polyvagal Theory focuses on what is happening in the
body and the nervous system, and explains how our sense of safety, danger or
life-threat can impact our behavior.

Understanding Polyvagal Theory gives us a scientific framework that can be
applied through physiological, or “bottom-up” therapies, to help change and
improve how we feel, think and connect with others.
