The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a therapeutic listening program designed to increase regulation in the nervous through auditory stimulation of the vagus nerve. The SSP contains 5 hours of specially filtered music that offers signals of safety to the nervous system and retunes the nervous system to pay attention to safety instead of threat. The SSP can be delivered in person, remotely, or a combination of both.
Vaginismus is best treated with a multidisciplinary approach, addressing medical, physical, and psychosocial aspects of the condition. Treatment often includes a combination of psychotherapy, sex education, sex therapy or sex therapy informed interventions, and pelvic therapy.
Pelvic pain can have a profound impact on quality of life, affecting both physical and mental health. Treating pelvic pain holistically ensures the whole person is considered within the context of each person's own life.
Somatic Experiencing® is nervous system based approach to healing trauma. In SE™, we work with story that shows up in the body in the here and now, instead of the verbal story that we are often more familiar with.
