Director Lindsay Ragone’s in-production doc Braingasm, dives into the newly Internet-driven research of ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) and its potential therapeutic benefits.

More info can be read as follows:

“About the Documentary

 

Imagine an online community where strangers actively help each other battle insomnia, depression, and even loneliness through creative expression. This community exists; It’s the ASMR community.

 

What is ASMR?

 

The term “autonomous sensory meridian response” (ASMR) is marked by a pleasurable tingling sensation often felt in the head. This can be triggered by anything from getting a haircut, hearing a paint brush against canvas, to listening to someone whisper. Not everyone feels it, but some of the lucky ones have joined together to create a social media movement that’s changing lives.

 

BRAINGASM is a feature documentary that explores ASMR, the unique community surrounding it, and the scientific possibilities this phenomenon could provide.”
