– For children and adults –

Nourish and awaken the nervous system. Feel better. Think better. Connect better.

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 SSP’s effectiveness has been proven in a wide range of studies, most notably in two clinical trials involving children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Trial participants demonstrated statistically significant improvements in:

  • Emotional control
  • Behavioral organization
  • Hearing sensitivity and listening

The SSP program, which is facilitated by qualified and certified professionals, employs a practical bottom-up approach to help people regulate their nervous system more consistently and independently.


Feel Better
Feel more safe, calm, grounded and resilient.
Feel less irritable, anxious and overwhelmed.


Think Better
Think more clearly, attentively, and creatively.
Think less rigidly, disorganized and distractible.


Connect Better
Connect more openly, genuinely and wholly.
Connect less guardedly, distantly and oppositionally.

Nourish the nervous system safely and remotely.

One SSP, 3 Pathways: Connect, Core, Balance

The complete SSP program comprises 3 main pathways that are accessible through and facilitated by a qualified and certified professional.

Each of the SSP pathways is composed of different filtered, unfiltered and calming 5-hour music playlists for either children or adults.

The SSP pathways are designed to help the nervous system to better receive, process and respond to the cues and signals from the world around us. This helps us learn how to more easily and consistently feel better regulated in the face of life’s challenges.



Warm up the nervous system with a gentle and slow introduction, establish familiarity and a sense of safety.



The original 5-hour listening program designed to wake up, exercise and open the nervous system, to build capacity and achieve reduced sensitivity and a more resilient physiological state.



Continue to stabilize and maintain a sense of calm and grounding, and further integrate the benefits
of SSP Core.

ON-DEMAND WEBINAR: Simplifying the SSP

Join our Programs Consultant, Ibrahim Fahmi, as he breaks down the Safe and Sound Protocol for professionals. Learn about the science behind the SSP, training and certification, and how to integrate SSP programs into your practice.

What you hear, and how you hear it, influences how the body responds.

Listening is connected with the vagus nerve, the body’s internal control center for processing and responding to cues and signals from the world around us.  The SSP uses specially-filtered music to train the neural network associated with listening to focus on the frequency range of the human voice. 

We look, speak and listen with the same system. When the voice changes, the body responds. As we learn to focus on the sound frequencies of human speech through the SSP program, the vagus nerve becomes stimulated and the state of feeling more safe and calm becomes accessible.

The proof is in the playlists. Specially treated music playlists are part of the SSP program and all help ‘prime’ the nervous system by exposing it to different sound frequencies. Listening to these playlists through over the ear headphones helps the nervous system to more readily achieve balance, or “homeostasis.”
