Safe and Sound Protocol
The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an evidence based therapeutic tool designed to reset the nervous system and return it to safety. SSP was developed by Dr. Stephen Porges based on his Polyvagal Theory. The purpose of this auditory intervention is to help you access a physiological state conducive to well-being, positive engagement with others, and growth in learning and therapy.
By helping to access this calm and grounded state, the SSP promotes a neural platform for health, growth and restoration in those experiencing the following challenges:
Body Talk Sessions
Body Talk sessions are offered for those who want to experience a more passive approach to healing. Body Talk provides insights to the areas of the body that need attention. Body Talk can help to refocus your body's natural healing response to establish better communication within the body.
Every single cell, atom, and system is in constant communication with every other cell, atom and system within the bodymind complex at all times. This includes communication through the nervous system, as well as the other subtle energy circuits of the body - such as the meridians and the electromagnetic frequencies that are produced by the body through its functioning. Stress we experience in our daily life can cause these circuits to become compromised, weakening or disrupting the communication between the cells and systems.
Just as the body heals a wound with a particular sequence of bio-chemical, physical and energetic responses, the body addresses all healing in a certain order. This concept is vital in the BodyTalk balancing process to encourage the body's ability to heal itself by the fastest means possible. BodyTalk helps to re-establish these energetic circuits and efficient communication in a quick and effective way, which then allows the body to very quickly recover and catch up in the healing process. This is witnessed in how quickly symptoms disappear and function returns, often within just one or two BodyTalk sessions.
The BodyTalk Practitioner relies on the guidance of the body's natural wisdom to not only locate the weakened or broken lines of communication and establish how to re-connect them, but also to find the proper order in which they are to be restored. This is accomplished through a form of neuromuscular biofeedback, by which the practitioner is able to ask the body yes-or-no questions and receive answers directly from the body about the sequence for re-establishing these lines of communication.
