We had the pleasure of working with Dr. Hastings to collaborate on an ear examination checkup with professional earwax removal. She has a very popular YouTube channel: WhisperAudios ASMR
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and has taken the YouTube world by storm in recent years. It is an intense relaxation process based on a soft-spoken voice, and if you suffer from insomnia (or other sleep disorders), it can definitely help you sleep. Imagine having an ASMR soundtrack playlist on your phone for a long-haul flight? You’ll be catching Z’s in no time!
Had a stressful day at work? No problem. Listen to the pleasant sounds of ASMR and you’ll settle into a deep relaxation state. Now you can view her ear examination video:
Effective collaboration for professional earwax removal
So why an ASMR collaboration? Well, we wanted to illustrate that ear irrigation is a relatively soothing process. There’s nothing to be afraid of! And many people actually find it quite pleasurable. Also, when your ears are blocked, your perception decreases. If your senses aren’t as good as usual, you aren’t getting the best from ASMR therapy. Watching the ear examination will give you the confidence to do the procedure yourself, should you be on the fence about it. It certainly calms any nerves.
Your ears are a sensory organ that will respond very well to this external stimuli if they themselves are in a healthy state. This means no earwax blockage. You’ll experience the ‘goosebumps’ and ‘tingles’ you get from the soft, whispering sounds. Furthermore, the video is designed so that you will follow along at a comfortable pace. Dr. Hastings does an excellent job of going through the process in real time, highlighting everything from applying ear drops to preparing the washer solution.
And heck, if you’re like me, you’ll end up watching the full 30-minute ear examination video more than once, and no doubt many more ASMR videos. They’re simply so effective.
