Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (AMSR) videos involve a person speaking softly to make someone feel relaxed.

With small movements made, this helps the viewer experience a tingling sensation which makes them feel chilled out.

Studies show that it can significantly reduce a person's heart rate and help them fall asleep faster.

UK Google searches for ASMR have increased by 22% since the start of the pandemic.
