What is ASMR?
Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a term used to describe a relaxing, soothing, and sometimes sleepy feeling that occurs in response to specific acoustic or visual stimuli and personal attention. The reaction is characterized by a pleasant static-like or tingling sensation that usually begins at the scalp, travels down the back of the neck, along the spine, and throughout the limbs. In the same way individuals can have varying preferences to music, food, or style, those who experience ASMR can be triggered by different forms of stimuli as well.
ASMR Triggers Can Include:
A softly spoken or whispering voice
Quiet, slow, and repetitive sounds – e.g. tapping and scratching
Watching somebody attentively and carefully execute a task such as hair brushing, drawing, cutting soap
Receiving altruistic, tender, personal attention
Oddly-satisfying items or actions (slime, kinetic sand, eating/mukbangs, pimple-popping, ear cleaning, etc.)
... and so much more!
At tinglesbar we offer a full sensory serenity of "LIVE ASMR" services inspired by traditional triggers – an ASMR Spa if you will. Featuring in-person experiences such as hair brushing, back scratching, face & ear attention, blissful soundscapes, oddly-satisfying interactions, and more, we offer pure delight in safe and welcoming spaces. We believe in access to a consistent state of well-being and mindfulness, among a community that is free of judgement and negative energy in order to provide ease, enjoyment, care, and comfort.
As ASMR continues to be a booming subculture mainly experienced via online audio and video content, tinglesbar provides a physical space that offers LIVE, in-person stimuli to induce ASMR on clients in real time. Currently based in Toronto, Canada, our unique services are developed and curated from traditional ASMR triggers with a goal to relieve stress and anxiety and encourage a state of relaxation and calm – whether you're an avid fan of the ASMR phenomenon, an active member of the community, or a first-time Tingler – we welcome you with open hands! It feels great to be here.
