To start, ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and according to Dr Giulia Poerio, it describes the feeling some people experience in response to certain triggers. Some may describe it as “bubbles tingling under the skin, often starting at the crown of the head and spreading down the rest of the body,” she says. However, not everyone experiences these sensations; or, some may only discover ASMR in certain settings. Dr. Poerio is a pioneer in the field of ASMR and the first to research what’s happening in the body when people are experiencing it. Past research has focused on individual differences without actually looking at why people are experiencing this feeling.
At Sloomoo Institute we havean ASMR tunnel, which will include ASMR cues throughout. We also have an ASMR listening station with satisfying sounds of slime popping, crunching, and poking along with frying eggs, sizzly Pop Rocks, nail tapping, heel walking and more.
