  1. When I experience ASMR, I get tingles throughout my scalp and sometimes also the back of my neck. It is like a warm, fuzzy feeling. It can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. It causes relaxation and calmness, and can help induce sleep.

  2. When I experience ASMR I get the same tingles and waves over my body that one would experience when getting their hair brushed or when using one of those little contraptions that kind of scratches your head. I have no idea what they’re called…


  3. ASMR feels like a pleasant sensation of goosebumps, in a way, usually starting on my scalp area, it s similar to frisson but very different at the same time. Apart from my scalp, depending on the trigger, I can actually sometimes feel it simultaneously on my scalp, back, arms, and legs. It s extremely relaxing, and it leads to a numbing sensation/sleepiness, similar to what we feel right after stretching. It makes you sleepy and relaxed, completely.

    3.i feel calmness. I always listen to ASMR right before i go to bed. I suffer with insomnia so it helps me sleep.

    4.depending on who does the ASMR they can be very strong.

    5. It lasts for as long as they do that certain trigger. Sometimes 5 to 10 mins…sometimes shorter sometimes longer. All depends.


  5. I describe ASMR as goosebumps/tingles that originate at the back of my head and spread out to the top of my head and down the back of my neck.
