ASMR, a relaxing, enjoyable, and sometimes rather odd sensory audio, has helped many people find their own ways to relax through sensory hypnosis.
According to sleep.org, “ASMR triggers vary and are individualized to the person, but they often involve slow, repetitive, or ordinary activities like hair brushing, folding towels, whispering, or finger tapping.” With so many different variations of ASMR, people are sure to find the right one to suit their needs of relaxation.
One look at the views on YouTube, and it’s clear to see there is a high market for relaxing audio sounds. With millions upon millions of views on some videos, the need for ASMR sounds and visuals are in high demand.
Sleep.org says that ASMR helps its viewers in other ways, not just with helping them fall asleep. ASMR can be used for pain relief, improving moods, and lowering stress.
There are so many types of ASMR sounds out there on the internet that the possibilities are endless for its uses. Brainfacts.org places their origin sometime around the late 2000s, “ASMR first hit the public consciousness in 2007 when a user described the experience in an online message board.” Since its slow introduction to mainstream viewing, ASMR has grown into a small, unspoken of habit, to being used and created by celebrities and Hollywood’s top A-listers.
Asmr is a wonderful invention that has created a chance for people around the world to find something to spend their time enjoying. Relaxation is something that we all share in common, and ASMR is more than happy to provide it.
