Many people claim that the sounds of soap shaving, whispering, finger tapping or pickle eating help alleviate stress, insomnia, depression and pain. Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho explains how this works.

Is something wrong with me if I don’t feel anything when this lady whispers at the camera. It seems like this is another FLAT EARTH thing. No one feels anything and everyone knows the earth is not flat.
Is there a word for complete opposite of asmr? I've tried watching some vids out of curiosity and it's like literally torture for my ears. Things like nail tapping, wispering on camera, hair dryers, anything like that makes me so angry I can't even explain lol. I feel so stressed afterward.
Ive been watching asmr videos for about 8months now at first i laughed especially the pickle eating ones but i actuaclly have been able to fall asleep relax and feel alot better my favorite ones are the cranial nerve exam and sleep clinic role plays even some of the chakra energy healing 💛
Travis? Thanks so much for talking about this, and I'm sorry that I'm just seeing it now. I'm 54. I had a pretty severe heart attack when I was 32, so now I'm dealing with congestive heart failure and insomnia is one of the symptoms. For whatever reason, those ASMR videos actually help me get to sleep. I don't know why it works but for me, at least, it does. I'm sure you'll understand this -- given my heart condition, sleeping pills would be a risky proposition.That doesn't change the fact that I need to sleep, but my doctors and I have managed to avoid the prescription drug route because of the ASMR videos that people are making.All I can say is that it's working for me. But, from an academic perspective, I actually would really like to know why. Setting all of that aside (and I don't know if you'll ever see this) thanks for the way you're using the platform you've got to demystify stuff that would otherwise be pretty scary. For whatever it's worth, I think you're a really good doctor.
It’s the tingle of nails on a chalkboard or a squeaky balloon, and it’s a reimagining of that experience as being positive and desirable. It’s a feral, primitive, ancient, mindless, instinctual response to sensational sound that can be powerful and calming as you rewire the judgment from cringeworthy and irritating. I think it makes you have thicker ‘skin’
For me, the typical asmr sounds actually cause me irritability. I despise whispering/scratching. Sort of like bugs crawling on you sensation. I get relaxation and even good tingles more from visual cues like watching deep tissue/sports massage/full service shave videos. If they have consistent ambient background noise with no talking or loud sudden noise (like car horn) it is even better.
Mainstream media outlets such as this one, can never take things seriously. They always find a way to mock or joke about asmr like the part where they were ripping the paper and passing it down while they and their audience laughs. Idk, maybe it's just me.
Not everyone will feel ASMR. Those who can truly feel it, will know the effects. A very intense feeling in the head, extending to other areas of the body if the trigger is strong enough. It's not just feeling relaxed by sounds, it's a definite and extremely euphoric feeling of tingles.
I just recently started listening to these asmr video, and it helps soo much to calm down.. listened one night and fell asleep and at one point it felt like someone rubbed their nails right down my spine... I live alone but it was soo tingly and nice. Wispersred is my favorite!
They forgot to mention that not everyone can experience asmr. They make it seem like it’s just some alternative way to relax which it can be for people who do not experience asmr and use it for depression and anxiety etc. but they’re not truly getting the asmr experience, the intense tingly sensation you feel in your head from hearing a sound, voice that triggers it or seeing something that triggers it, you get constant waves of these tingles of pleasure almost like a natural high
