I also learned about this from This American Life, and I've experienced it, or something like it. Since I was a teenager, getting my hair cut puts me into kind of a hyper-sensitive trance state. There's definitely a tingling sensation that spreads outwards from the top of my head. It feels very good and very relaxing.

It seems like most people who talk about this have sound triggers. I don't. The videos don't do anything for me. So perhaps its not the same thing. But it seems related enough that I was captivated by the episode.
