What is ASMR?
ASMR is the name given to the pleasent tingling sensation you may have experienced during a haircut or head massage. Conveniently, its relaxing effect can be induced by certain sounds and visuals.
Though the physiological mechanism is poorly understood, a small but growing number of people use this phenomenon as a sleep aid and a form of relaxation similar to meditation.
