Would you be interested in an ASMR spa?
Amanda Rose Doherty is currently an Account Manager at a software company in Barcelona, Spain. She received her Business Studies Degree in Marketing at Dublin City University.
Amanda was considering the idea of opening an ASMR spa. She created a survey in 2016 to assess interest in this idea and I wrote an article about her with a link to her survey.
The bad news is that Amanda has shifted her focus away from creating an ASMR spa, but the good news is that she has shared the results of her survey with me – and the data shows that there is a strong interest in ASMR spas.
She had over 600 responses and has given me permission to share her interesting data below. Below are results from her survey, followed by a link if you would like to learn more about her.
I’ve reported previously about spas in Canada and Ireland offering or considering ASMR-type services.
Brooklyn, NY, USA now joins the list with the announcement of Whisperlodge, a concept which is self-described as,
“An immersive spa for the senses, coaxing you to tune in to yourself with live ASMR.”
The description at one of the Whisperlodge websites continues with additional details,
I have previously written an article about an in-person ASMR spa in Canada.
Well, the lucky citizens of Ireland may also be getting a new ASMR spa for their real world tingles and relaxation.
Amanda Rose Doherty is a product manager at a pharmaceutical company in Dublin, Ireland and received her Business Studies Degree in Marketing at Dublin City University.
Amanda is also interested in opening up an ASMR spa in Dublin.
Her keen marketing education and wisdom is guiding her to make informed decisions about her spa vision. To help her do this, she has created a survey to gather input from those within the ASMR community.
In my interview with Amanda she shares her inspiration for an ASMR spa, her goals for the survey about the spa, her perceived challenges of bringing her idea to reality, her wonderful vision of an ASMR-enriched future and more.
Many ASMR videos on YouTube include spa role-plays because the attention and services provided in spas are some of the strongest ASMR triggers.
And traditional spa services are great at triggering ASMR because some of the core biology of ASMR may be rooted in feeling safe, being relaxed, and being cared for.
So there is something deliciously meta about a spa offering ASMR sessions.
In 2013, Michelle Joni wrote a blog post for spaweekly.com on this very topic. She began with an explanation of ASMR and concluded with this question, “Is an ASMR massage experience something spas should consider incorporating into their menus?”
I recently came across a spa which actually has incorporated ASMR experiences into their menu.
