Hello Fluffy Teddy Bears

What is ASMR?

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response

A = autonomous
S= sensory
R= response

It is the tingling feeling you get in your head and scalp down your shoulders and spine from triggering sounds and visual stimuli. It almost feels like the hair is moving and lifting itself up from the roots sometimes. The most relaxing, calming feeling. So wonderful! ASMR can also be experienced from physical touch, like hair play, massage, makeup application, and for some personal attention.
It`s not something you can control. I can not just decide that I want to experience it at one particular moment. Sometimes I feel it, and other times not. But when I do, oh how wonderful!

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia and may overlap with frisson.”

ASMR signifies the subjective experience of “low-grade euphoria” characterized by “a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin”. It is most commonly triggered by specific auditory or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control.

Some ASMR triggers

Nail tapping
Nail scratching
Hair brushing
Doing different kinds of activities that creates relaxing sounds. like painting, brushing hair, folding clothes, washing, paper tearing, keyboard tapping, drawing, cooking food, role plays… the list goes on and on.
Eating sounds

Some people use ASMR videos for sleep, relaxation purposes and to calm down their anxiety even if they can not experience ASMR.

It is so nice that ASMR help people.

What is your favorite ASMR trigger?
What makes your head tingle?
Have you found your ASMR artists that can trigger your ASMR and make your head tingle? For me it can not be just anyone. It must be the right person for the job. Someone with the right energy and persona. Sometimes it changes over time.



Very Best
