What Is ASMR & How can It Help With Relaxation

asmr relaxation

ASMR relaxation has grown in popularity over recent years, thanks to the rise in YouTube channels making ASMR sleep therapy videos and whispering relaxation videos. 

What is ASMR?

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and it is a feeling of calm and tranquillity mixed with a tingling sensation in your head and down your spine. It is generally triggered by external stimuli like certain sounds or voices.

How Does it Relax People?

This phenomenon has been included in relaxation techniques for stress but what is ASMR meditation and how does it relax people? 

As it is still a pretty new creation in the scheme of things, there is far more research that needs to be done into what actually brings about this tingling feeling. Some have suggested that ASMR relaxation comes about because the stimuli could remind you of a comforting childhood experience or that basic sounds subdue us into a sleepy state.
