SSP is intended to be used as an additional form of therapy, not as the primary method of therapy. It works great when used as a complement to the types of therapies the individual is already engaged in.  The Safe and Sound Protocol involves a total of five hours of specially processed music that is 

titrated over time based on individual tolerance


During your session you will be attended, guided, supported ,and educated by Dr. Rinde. He will help monitor your response , assess your readiness, and titrate your level of intervention. He may also incorporate other nervous system balancing components such as breathing exercises, vagal stimulation, myofascial muscle release to the head, neck, spinal column, and lower back, stretches, and meditations.


But the core of the process is the SSP.

Depending on your assessment there are three levels of listening :

SSP Connect

  • This level offers a full-spectrum, unfiltered music​​

  • it provides an introduction to the SSP; often appropriate for children or highly sensitive individuals as a starting place

  • You can listen in any order

SSP Core

  • This is the main SSP listening level providing progressively, dynamically filtered music​

  • Strongest, potentially therapeutic

  • muscle listen in order

  • Hour three is when many of the shifts occur.​

SSP Balance

  • This lightly filtered music​

  • repeat hours as needed

  • used as a state shift to provide additional support after the main program has been completed

  • can be listened in any order

What does SSP music sound like?

SSP music is music you will recognize.  


Ther are  three different playlists.

They are:

  • Adult which is a mix of rock, pop and country.

  • Child which has music intended to appeal to children.  The songs are from Disney and similar.

  • Classical Flow is classical music (might be best someone whose misophonia triggers may be connected with vocalizations during music)

The filtering is the same on all three playlists so they can be used by anyone of any age.   The different pathways are mainly to appeal to different preferences.

Filtered music trains the neural network especially in auditory sensitivity and emotional control. Frequency changes and is dynamically filtered. The nervous system is being trained through neuroception and middle ear muscles are trained to better receive middle range frequency.  This sends cues of safety through the ventral vagal complex.
