Minecraft has so many applications, meaning many different uses. Some use it for just game-play, some use it for socializing, some use to create ridiculously awesome structures and mechanisms and some use it for therapy. Specifically ASMR therapy. What is ASMR therapy?

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a neologism for a perceptual phenomenon characterized as a distinct, pleasurable tingling sensation in the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, or cognitive stimuli.

If that sounds confusing, think about the first time someone whispered in your ear.. … it was really awesome! Something about it just made your skin tingle in a good way.. It was very relaxing.

The latest craze on YouTube is recording ASMR videos. You have all sorts of videos from role playing at the dentist, to unwrapping and eating candy.

ZenASMR(Subscribe!) is a youtube channel that has successfully created a couple videos using Minecraft as the therapy. Naturally Minecraft has very soothing music and something about clearing blocks sounds so peaceful that it would make great ASMR therapy.

Give the video a listen with headphones on your head for maximum results. Make sure you close your eyes and find a cozy spot to relax.
