What is ASMR?
Asmr is a term that has been making waves on the internet in recent years. It stands for autonomous sensory meridian response- a feeling of euphoria and relaxation triggered by specific sounds or sights. People who experience ASMR often report feelings of tingles or chills down their spine and a sense of calm and peace. While the phenomenon has been around for a while, it has only recently gained attention online, with dozens of youtube channels and websites devoted to it. Some claim that ASMR has therapeutic benefits, helping relieve stress, anxiety, and even pain. However, there is little scientific evidence to support these claims. So far, the jury is still out on ASMR- but it’s worth checking out if you’re curious!
