  1. It’s relaxing and a very good (physical) feeling. I think it is helpful for getting to sleep if that’s a problem. It has helped me there. I hope they find out more about it.


  2. ASMR is also useful to me in reducing pain and physical discomfort, and in allowing me to feel deep relaxation and a sense of indulgence/”treat-yo-self” without spending money.
    For pain relief, I enjoy watching massage demonstrations or POV massage videos. For indulgence, I like the spa or makeup application role plays.
    For pain relief, ASMR is a great, no-side-effects alternative to my muscle relaxants. It is just as potent as the medication for mild pain, but for severe pain it won’t work. The videos aren’t as good as massages, but are free and easier to get. For indulgence, the videos are much better than paying for a haircut or manicure! The videos also more often trigger ASMR than the real thing in a salon.
    Yes, I have been diagnosed with chronic pain.
    No, I have not discussed ASMR with my clinician


  3. My son has severe autism and extreme violent behaviors. Medication and ABA therapy only does so much for him . ASMR has made a huge difference in helping him be calm, less anxious, and fall asleep easier. This is an absolute breakthrough in my opinion. Since we are in the early stages of discovering this and our journey is just beginning I’ll be reading up on as much as possible to educate myself. I also plan on sharing this with other families I know with children on the spectrum. ASMR University is a great place to gain a better understanding of how this works. I am very thankful for discovering it today !!
