ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Have you ever experienced a tingle in the head that travels through your spine to the limbs? This tingly sensation is euphoric, relaxing and gives you a feeling of well being. Scientifically it is called ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response), but it has many unofficial names such as braingasms, head tingles or head orgasms. It is a phenomenon that happens with the human body when one hears soft voices or certain soothing sounds such as tapping or scraping of a pen on paper.
