ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It is a tingling sensation millions of people experience when they encounter white noise or soft-spoken voices or whispers. I experienced this phenomenon often as a child and teenager when I’d be talking with others, and they would speak in a soft voice. It was almost a hypnotic kind of effect.
ASMR has been shown to help people who suffer from depression, anxiety, and loneliness, and can have a positive effect on their lives.
However, it is important to note that this does not or should not take the place of actual medicine or therapy.
