What is ASMR?
- What? Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response
-Tingeling sensation triggered by certain stimuli called triggers
- Who? ASMRtists
- How? Listening, seeing or feeling
Those who experience tingles, report...
Why I chose this topic
- Helps me with: panic/anxiety attacks, insomnia, relaxation and headaches
- The science behind ASMR => not enough research
2015 PeerJ study
Only 5% use ASMR for sexual stimulation
"Findings indicate that ASMR is reliable and physiologically- rooted experience that may have therapeutic benefits for mental and physical health"
The University of Sheffield, PLOSOne, 2018
-Neuroimaging using fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging)
-Regions associated with self-awareness, social cognition, and social behaviour including grooming.
Producing images of brain activity to messure what's happening in various regions of the brain.
While hearing fireworks.
While listeing to my favourite ASMR trigger.
Blood pressure: 119/80 mmHg
Pulse rate: 73 bpm
Blood pressure: 117/76 mmHg
Pulse rate: 84 bpm
Blood pressure: 107/79 mmHg
Pulse rate: 77 bpm
How can ASMR be used in therapy?
- Classical Conditioning, Pavlov (a procees by which we learn to associate stimuli and, consequently, to anticipate events)
- Associating ASMR stimuli/ triggers with calmness, relaxation, comfort, sleepiness ( conditioned stimulus => conditioned response)
- Feel safe
- No judgment
- nostolgia (warmth, safety...)
- The tingling sensation feels like a soft blanket
- Too intimate
- Prefrences (e.g. physical touch)
- The tingling sensation feels like cringing
- ASMR is real!
- The phenomenon has physiological and neurological activation
- It may be useful therapeutically for both physical and mental health
