If you are sitting there claiming “my senses just aren’t linked that way” but you’ve made it this far in the article, you’re likely curious what other people feel from ASMR and why they are obsessed with it.
Have you ever had a pleasing reaction to something but were unable to articulate how it makes you feel because it makes absolutely no sense? For example, I love the smell of freshly opened tennis balls. I am fully aware that the smell shouldn’t be great, it’s hardly enticing on paper. If I had to describe it, I’d say it’s a musky, muddy, petroleum, rubbery odor. Sounds great, huh? Interestingly, there is a fraction of the population who, like me, loves this smell.
Well, I’m going to offer you a shortcut: the scalp massager. This Daddy Long Leg-looking device is used by gently placing it on the scalp and lightly pressing it down, so that the “legs” glide down your scalp. Try having someone else use it on you for the best effects.
