What is ASMR? For most, it is a sensation best described as “tingles”, usually in the head, neck and shoulders. It is often a pleasant reaction to a stimulus that is triggered by the sensation of touch, sound or reaction to light. Possibly other senses as well, although these seem to be the most common.
My earliest memory of ASMR was in Elementary school when students would go in for a lice exam. A very gentle, soft spoken nurse would delicately run a comb through my hair and check my scalp and ears. I also have this reaction to nurses during other exams. Another common memory is hair-playing. Girls in grade school would sit in a row and you’d play with the girl’s hair in front of you, and the one behind you would play with your hair. My experience with ASMR usually stems from an event of sensation that makes me feel safe and cared for, although there are a number of triggers.
Some very common triggers: Blinking or light triggers, tapping sounds, mouth sounds, close up whispering, soft speaking, accents, hand movement, tracing with fingers, personal attention, latex glove sounds, skin rubbing sounds, massage, the sound of rain and thunder, Some are unintentional triggers such as watching someone receive a massage, a doctor’s exam, a calm, gentle nurse or as abstract as crinkling paper.
What are your triggers? I am always hopeful for feedback in the comments section. Although I may sometimes be slow to respond, I read every single comment and message. I’m always open to new ideas and want to provide the best ASMR I can to my lovelies, so please share if you’re comfortable.
