The Hidden World of ASMR

If you’re new to the club, welcome. ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) is the stimulation of sensations throughout the body from visual, tactile, and auditory responses. In other words, it is an experience that heightens or relaxes your body through calm procedures. For instance, a nice message, a soft-spoken voice, or writing on a sketchbook. Each task is a therapeutic way to help ease illnesses such as anxiety, insomnia, and panic attacks.

The focus behind ASMR is the attention given to one person or task focusing on the activity at hand. Through light whispers, the subject interacts with the object leaving a light meditation on the mind. Studies behind the phenomenon have shown behavioral responses of deep concentration through unconscious activation.  Bryson Lochte, a graduate from Dartmouth, found the neurological activity to release dopamine like food or sex. Although ASMR isn’t a clinically used procedure to help patients, wanderers who seek a treatment on their own can find this as a useful practice.
