WEST MIDLANDS, England, Aug. 07, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- For thousands of years, Tibetan Singing Bowls have been invaluable to meditation practices due to their otherworldly sound and what people believe are healing frequencies. Also called "Tibetan bells," "prayer bowls," or "chakra bowls," the instruments have recently found new 21st century application by producers of ASMR videos. Along with Tibetan bowls, ASMR artists are known to use other sound-makers such as light scratching, nail tapping, whispering and soft brushes.

A popular trend for several years now – over 13 million separate ASMR videos have been uploaded to YouTube - ASMR is an acronym for "Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response". Listeners susceptible to this response experience a tingling sensation on the skin in reaction to certain sounds. Previously unrecognized or dismissed as an individualistic and fleeting phenomenon, ASMR has been gaining wide awareness both in popular culture and even in the scientific realm.

A recent study from the University of Sheffield concluded, "those who experience ASMR showed significantly greater reductions in their heart rates when watching ASMR videos (an average decrease of 3.14 beats per minute) compared to those who do not. They also showed significant increases in positive emotions including relaxation and feelings of social connection."

"The sound of Tibetan bowls resonates deeply in your body," says Richard Pol, founder of Silent Mind, the #1 retailer of high quality Tibetan singing bowls on Amazon. "It's almost as if the sound waves vibrate in between your molecules. It's certainly no surprise that the YouTube generation has discovered and fully embraced these special instruments for ASMR videos." In fact, some of the top-viewed ASMR Tibetan bowl videos have garnered more than two million views on YouTube.

Silent Mind's bowls come directly from experienced craftsmen just outside of Nepal's capital, Kathmandu. The company takes pride in always working under the "fair trade" paradigm, which means the prices are negotiated with their supplier to have a conscious, positive impact on the local economy. The company guarantees its products for life, happily replacing them if any problems arise. It's no wonder the company has a perfect five-star rating on Amazon over thousands of purchases.
