Safe and Sound Protocol

The Safe and Sound Protocol, or SSP, is a non-invasive application of Polyvagal Theory, based on decades of research and developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, Unyte’s Chief Scientific Advisor. The Protocol has been known to help individuals (both children and adults) have the ability to regulate their emotional states by working directly with the vagus nerves. We all process cues and signals from the world around us differently. Some of us may naturally feel more calm and spend more time in a ventral vagal state while others, due to genetic makeup and life experience may feel more threatened or endangered and default to sympathetic or dorsal vagal state. This is especially true of those who experience the effects of trauma, or with conditions such as anxiety, ADHD, autism or PTSD. Stimulating the vagus nerve and providing cues of safety can enable our nervous system to reset and change our physiological state — helping us to more easily access our ventral vagal state and to more consistently feel safe and calm.

Each program lasts 5 days and requires continuity. This may vary per person and their ability to listen for the hour it requires each day.

Focus Program

This is another program that was created by Integrated Listening Systems. It is much more impactful on the neurobiological system. This program helps rewire the brain through the use of specific and repeated stimulation. It is similar to building strength and endurance with physical exercise, we are able to build neurological pathways and synaptic activity at any age.
By improving brain function we can achieve our goals and realize our full potential. The goal of the focus program is to help individuals find more success in their lives. If we can organize our neurobiology to help us succeed, we are off to a good start. The cost of the program is $250 to rent the equipment for home use. The setup fee is $300. Caregivers will be expected to do the program with their children after initial visit with provider. Provider will guide the process with weekly meetings and initial assessment.
