The Safe and Sound Protocol

The Safe and Sound Protocol home program

For stress-related pain disorders from:

  • Chronic pain – daily pain that lasts for more than three months
  • Fibromyalgia – widespread pain, tenderness, and stiffness of muscles and connective tissue
  • Hypertension – also known as high blood pressure
  • Brain fog – challenges with concentration, memory, and learning
  • Depression/anxiety – most people that have chronic pain also have these challenges.
  • Autoimmune disease – an illness that occurs when the immune system attacks the body tissues. Examples include type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis
  • Insomnia – sleep disorders and chronic pain issues go hand in hand

The Safe and Sound Protocol home program (SSP) – Traumatic stress which includes feelings of overwhelm, hopelessness or terror can trigger changes in the brain’s patterns. The SSP is addressing these changes in the brain. It was designed to help correct certain brain pathways, allowing the affected person to access feelings of safety more easily and more often. As a person feels safer and, therefore, more relaxed, the effects of chronic stress begin to fade.

The SSP is a five-day program with a specialized music player shipped to you and includes a 50-Minute ZOOM session with Michael for training and set up.

    Clients who have completed the SSP program have shown significant improvement in the following areas:

        • Chronic pain intensity and frequency
        • Emotional control/ managing stress
        • Impulse control and organizing daily life
        • Social connection
        • Hearing sensitivity
        • Quality of sleep

Using the Leif Smart Patch technology, I will remotely monitor your stress cycles. I will analyze and explain to you the data from the device. And I will train you in highly effective stress management techniques, including therapeutic breathing.
