Hey everyone! To all of our amazing Stööki fam who follow and have connected with us on socials will have noticed that we have been posting ASMR videos of our jewellery-making process. We really appreciate the support and it's been amazing to see how many of you have enjoyed the content.

We thought is was a good time to create a blog post showcasing some of our favourite ASMR videos so far and give you some more information about all things Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response... :)



ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response - computer scientist Jennifer Allen coined this term. 

A way to describe ASMR would be to compare it to "musical frisson" - chills/goosebumps someone may get when listening to music. However, there isn't really anything you're able to compare it to.

ASMR triggers - there can be certain things which can trigger an "ASMR response" from someone, it could be the sound of certain objects e.g. crinkling paper, folding towels, turning pages or tapping, whispering, and typing.




There are also role-play videos in the world of ASMR, with the focus being on certain sounds and movement.

Researchers have found that there are top 4 triggers when it comes to ASMR, the top 4 being: whispering, personal attention, crisp sounds.

ASMR would be described as something which has arisen only recently. The earliest mentions on ASMR could be found on a 2007 thread on an online forum where people shared their experiences. In 2009, there was then a YouTube video of ASMR posted.



As of 2021, ASMR is the third most searched term. ASMR also appears to be quite popular on Instagram and has gained notoriety in TikTok.
