SSP (Safe and Sound Protocol) is auricular vagal nerve stimulation. The goal of this therapy is to make people feel safe. SSP is used to treat anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, autism, insomnia, inflammatory conditions, chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, by improving the functioning of the vagus nerve. After meeting with an SSP provider, the rest of this therapy can be done at home.

Headphones are used to listen to specially filtered music. The frequencies in the music stimulate "the inner ear, which affects a prominent cranial nerve [the vagus nerve] that runs throughout the brain, impacting your auditory, facial, respiratory, cardiac, and digestive systems. This cranial nerve is implicated in many physiological functions." SSP was developed by Stephen Porges, a professor at Indiana University and at the University of North Carolina.

SSP patients listen to five hours of filtered music. Some people listen to one hour a day for five consecutive days. Others prefer doing it for 30 minutes a day or 15 minutes a day.
