Relaxing Bedtime Stories, Fact and Fiction

ASMR, or the autonomic sensory meridian response, is a healthy phenomenon by which certain sounds and visual triggers produce a relaxation response often colloquially called “scalp tingles.” You may have experienced this while your grandmother was baking cookies, or while listening to a favorite teacher, or when, as a child, your friends gave you “shivers” by running fingers on your shoulder or spine.

Using this phenomenon, I make comforting bedtime scifi and “medical visit” videos to educate you on mental health while entertaining you with interspersed fiction. Responses have ranged from the occasional enraged threat to thanks so heartfelt people have written me poetry, asked me to be in film, and even recorded their heartbeats for me.
