While often a subject that leads itself to humor, snoring is a potentially serious subject — night time breathing problems can disrupt sleep patterns, oxygen intake, REM sleep, and can even lead to more serious conditions. Snoring usually brings with it other health problems: headaches and sore throat, among others. Snoring can result from stress, sleep apnea or cardiovascular issues.
Sinusitis is also a condition that is commonly a cause for snoring, and is a direct result of allergies. Sinusitis can cause nasal passages to become obstructed, resulting in noisy breathing. Chronic nasal congestion due to allergies is very common and can be relieved and sometimes reversed with acupuncture. Whatever the cause, acupuncture can successfully treat snoring and its causes.
I examine your sleep patterns and your health history to determine the source of your snoring. I then focus on specific meridians that balance the tone and tension in the many tissues of the neck and throat. Besides acupuncture, I recommend some healthy lifestyle changes to help relieve your snoring symptoms. These lifestyle changes include a slight diet modification to improve the structure and quality of the neck tissues.
Many scientific studies show the positive correlation between snoring reduction and acupuncture. People who receive treatment for snoring report better sleep, greater sense of well being and markedly less stress. Studies show that people who receive acupuncture for snoring cessation also decrease their risk of heart disease and stroke.
Needless to say, stopping snoring can also improve your intimate relationships!
