our ethos

Whisperlodge is an ASMR spa for the senses. Our trained guides work one-on-one with each guest in a series of visual, auditory, and haptic treatments designed to relax the body and mind.

what is ASMR?

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a sensory phenomenon where viewers feel pleasurable tingles from specific visual, auditory and haptic triggers.

First observed and discussed on the internet in 2007, the phenomenon is only beginning to be studied academically.

Whisperlodge offers the very first in-person immersive ASMR experience.
