Automonous Sensory Meridian Response
Automonous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a physical reaction to specific stimuli or triggers. These triggers vary by individual and can be visual, auditory or a combination of both. Many people describe ASMR as a tingly sensation which begins at the base of the spine or neck and slowly works its way throughout the back, shoulders, and head. Not everyone experiences ASMR, but those that do can attest to what a powerfully relaxing and pleasant state it creates. For some, it is the only thing that helps them to cope with crippling anxiety, PTSD, loneliness, or insomnia.
