I am pleased to announce that I am a certified Safe and Sound Polyvagal Therapy therapist!
The Safe and Sound Protocol is an evidence-based therapeutic tool designed to reset the nervous system and return it to safety. Designed to work with other therapeutic approaches and modalities, the SSP features specially filtered music that stimulates the vagus nerve.
The music is designed to stimulate the vagus nerve, which is responsible for calming the nervous system. This allows for enhanced social engagement and resilience in children and adults. Please inquire with any questions or if you are interested in the Safe and Sound Therapy program.
