What Is The Meaning of ASMR?
Have you ever felt a certain tingling, relaxing sensation when someone brushed your arm, stroked your curls or whispered in your ears? If so, that’s ASMR – the Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It’s a phenomenon that is difficult to explain to anyone who hasn’t experienced it themselves.
It is a physical tingling sensation that begins in your scalp and moves down through the spine to the limbs.
