    Acupuncture & Acupressure Treatment of Sleep Apnea

    Acupuncture works by stimulating the muscles of the upper respiratory airways and helping brain in sending proper signals to these muscles for normal breathing. A type of acupuncture called auriculotherapy acupoint pressure may help treat sleep apnea. Auriculotherapy involves treating the ear as a microsystem with the entire body represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Also known as ear acupuncture or auricular acupuncture, critical points are stimulated by inserting acupuncture needles into the outer areas of the ear. Specific points on the ear can also be stimulated by manual pressure, referred to as auricular acupressure or ear reflexology. In some cases, these acupuncture points can even be stimulated with lasers, magnets, and ear pellets.

Hypnotherapy is safe and quick treatment of deep seated psychological issues and barriers.
