Acupuncture for Snoring and Sleep Apnea




Snoring can result from a number of factors including allergies, colds and mouth anatomy. The noisy breathing occurs when the nasal passages become obstructed. Chronic nasal congestion associated with snoring can often be relieved and even reversed with acupuncture. Inflammation of the nasal passages clogs the nostrils causing restricted breathing. Acupuncture can help by dilating the blood vessels allowing oxygen and nutrients in to support the nostril tissue and eventually reduce inflammation. This reduces congestion and clears the airways which can help solve the problem..
