20 Best ASMR Videos On YouTube With Sounds & Visuals To Instantly Relax You

Have you ever watched a video that sent a chill up your spine or made your head tingle? If so, have you ever wondered why? I mean, what caused you to have such a visceral reaction to an image, a noise, a word, or a sound?

Well, if you are like millions of other Americans, it could be ASMR.

What is ASMR? 

It's an autonomous sensory median response that creates a "calming, pleasurable feeling" that relaxes both the body and the mind. Or, to put it another way, ASMR creates physical and psychological effects on the body which make one "calm, peaceful, relaxed, mildly sedated... [and] create the ideal mental environment for sleep," according to NestMaven.com.

That said, those who have experienced ASMR describe the sensation as "reflective" and "meditative." It is a tingling sensation that is both soothing and serene.

But what makes it one of the best ASMR videos?

Well, the stimuli that trigger an autonomous sensory median response varies from person to person; however, some common ASMR videos include clacking, tapping, whispering, manipulation of smooth, fluid objects (like slime and glue), and the idea that someone is touching your face or head — also known as role-playing ASMR.
