ASMR as Anxiety Relief

Several years ago, Spirit Payton was diagnosed with severe degenerative bone disease, leaving her with anxiety and chronic pain. She found relief via an unlikely source: ASMR. For the uninitiated, ASMR refers to feelings triggered by visual or auditory stimuli, perhaps by the tapping of nails against glass, or the crinkling of a candy wrapper. Realizing the healing power it had for her, Payton became an ASMR artist, hoping to help others battling their own ailments.
