What is ASMR?
ASMR stands for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response.” It is often reported as an extremely relaxing and calming feeling usually associated with a tingling or euphoric feeling in the brain. Stimuli that initiate ASMR are called “triggers” and may be induced by having someone touch you lightly, receiving personal attention, observing someone demonstrate something with expertise, or listening to a soft voice.
Common examples of situations that stimulate ASMR include having your skin lightly touched, having someone wash or cut your hair, receiving focused attention from a clinician, watching a skilled individual create a drawing or painting, hearing certain sounds like tapping or crinkling, having someone talk to you in a soft, slow, and comforting tone, or having someone whisper gently to you.

Are all the tracks in the app relaxing and/or able to stimulate ASMR?
The app provides a wide variety of tracks which are commonly reported to help some individuals to relax, fall asleep, and/or experience ASMR. It would be very unlikely for someone to be relaxed by every track, but quite likely for someone to find some tracks relaxing. Think of this app like a buffet of voices and sounds. Sample widely, then pick and choose those select tracks which relax you the most.
Why is the app named Silk ASMR?
We wanted our name to represent quality and comfort, attributes well known to the material of silk. Another major reason was the word itself. The “sk” sound is one of the strongest vocal sounds for stimulating ASMR in many individuals.
What is the app icon?
The app icon is a silk moth. Specifically, actias luna, also known as the “luna moth.” Its transformation from an earth-bound caterpillar to a free-flying moth is a metaphor for how someone may feel after being relaxed, well rested, or after experiencing ASMR. Our hope is that this app will bring you a similar type of transformation or rejuvenation.
Will there be an Android version?
Yes. Our Android version is already 90% complete. After completion and appropriate testing we will be launching it on the Google Play store. We will announce the Android version on our Facebook page, Twitter account, and on this website.
