What is the science behind the SSP?

Author of the Polyvagal Theory, Dr. Stephen Porges developed the Safe and Sound Protocol.

When we feel safe, our nervous system allows us to feel calm, connected to people and our surroundings, and emotionally regulated.

When we feel unsafe, we enter what is commonly called a "fight-or-flight" state, mainfesting in symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, irritability, and shallow, fast breathing.

If we spend too much time in a dysregulated state, it can lead to feelings of depression, fatigue, and more. 
The SSP is designed to provide cues of safety to our nervous system, bringing us back to an emotionally-regulated state where we are better equipped to face life's challenges.
