Can autonomous sensory meridian response help you fall asleep?

This one definitely needs to be filed under 'unusual insomnia cures' - but we figured we'd share it with you anyway!

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is defined as a physical sensation characterised by a pleasurable tingling that typically begins in the head and scalp, and often moves down the spine and through the limbs. Not everyone is susceptible to ASMR, but for those who are, it's typically triggered by:

  • Exposure to slow, accented, or unique speech patterns
  • Viewing educational or instructive videos or lectures
  • Experiencing a high empathetic or sympathetic reaction to an event
  • Enjoying a piece of art or music
  • Watching another person complete a task, often in a diligent, attentive manner - examples would be filling out a form, writing a check, going through a purse or bag, inspecting an item closely, etc.
  • Close, personal attention from another person
  • Haircuts, or other touch from another on head or back

One journalist (see the source link for more) found that seeking out ASMR helped him fall asleep, despite the fact he's spent most of his adult life suffering from insomnia.

Some have coined ASMR as a 'brain orgasm' - perhaps this is good news when you consider the link between insomnia, testosterone and sexual health.
