From the Desk of:Marc MacDonald, M.Sc.Independent Sleep Apnea Researcher
Dear Fellow Sleep Apnea Sufferer,
Are you tired of expensive and uncomfortable treatments for sleep apnea? If you’re reading this website, you’re probably sick of struggling with your CPAP, tired of dealing with your dental appliance, or frightened by the idea of surgery.
And I don’t blame you. In the years I’ve been researching sleep apnea treatments, I’ve received hundreds of emails from sleep apnea sufferers looking for easier, cheaper, and less invasive apnea treatments.
Unfortunately, most doctors aren’t able (or willing) to share information with you on those treatments. The fact is, many doctors are too busy to keep up with new advances in sleep apnea treatments, so they simply don’t know about alternatives to CPAP, dental appliances, and surgery. And other doctors WON’T tell you about new treatments, because they have no financial incentive to.
So I’m here today to tell that alternatives to the “mainstream” apnea treatments exist, and there’s one in particular that has been used for centuries to treat depression, hypertension, sciatica, stroke, and many types of pain. That treatment is acupuncture.
Sound too good to be true? How about if I told you that this treatment has been tested in scientific trials and has been written about in prestigious scientific journals such as Sleep Medicine? And it has also been tested and recommended by regular sleep apnea sufferers on websites around the Internet. (More about that in a second.)
Curious? Read on to learn more!
The vast majority of people with sleep apnea suffer from what’s called “obstructive sleep apnea”, or OSA (a small percentage of people have “central sleep apnea”. Central sleep apnea is very different from OSA, and is caused by neurological factors. I’ll be talking only about obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, here).
When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, the tissues in your upper throat relax and collapse together while you’re sleeping. This blocks the air’s passage temporarily.
Here’s how it happens while you’re asleep:
1. Air travels to your lungs via the nose, mouth and throat (all known as the ‘upper airway’)
2. Normally, the back of a person’s throat is soft and naturally falls inward when they breathe.
3. To prevent this soft tissue in the throat from closing (and cutting off your supply of oxygen), the muscles in the throat remain stiff during the day. Unfortunately, at night the muscles relax, causing the tissue in your throat to collapse.
4. When the tissues at the rear of the throat collapse and become temporarily blocked off, apnea will happen and your breathing stops temporarily (“apnea” is a Greek word that means “cessation of breath”).
This video shows and explains the Obstructive Sleep Apnea Cycle:
So the key to conquering obstructive sleep apnea is to make sure the throat muscles stay FIRM while you sleep. Firm throat muscles keep your airway open while you sleep, thereby eliminating sleep apnea.
So HOW can you keep those muscles firm? That’s where acupuncture comes in!
With acupuncture, needles are pricked through the skin at particular points on the body. Its practitioners believe that the body is one with nature, and thus, everyone has streams and rivers within the body, similar to Mother Nature.
Instead of water though, the body’s “streams” (known as meridians) contain energy (known as “qi”) which flows in a particular way through the body. If this flow encounters resistance or is interrupted, illness ensues as the body’s balance is thrown off.
It is using this theory that acupuncture is believed to help relieve and treat sleep apnea; the needles that are pricked into the body during acupuncture send energy into the meridians of the body and remove the interruption to the natural energy flow, thus relieving the illness, or in this case, sleep apnea.
From a Western scientific viewpoint, it is suggested that the practice may restore the patient’s healthy sleep patterns by relaxing the nervous system and increasing the production of serotonin by the body, a substance that promotes better sleep. Acupuncture may also help keep the upper airways open by stimulating and strengthening the muscles of the airway that usually collapse when the patient has an episode of sleep apnea.
I know what you’re probably thinking at this point: “acupuncture seems so simple. How do I know it actually cures sleep apnea?”
It’s a little-known fact that dozens of academic studies have been conducted on acupuncture treatment for sleep apnea – and all have concluded that acupuncture can cure – or significantly reduce – obstructive sleep apnea.
Here’s a sample:
Study: In 2006 a scientific study was published in the prestigious journal Sleep Medicine entitled “Treatment of Moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome with Acupuncture”.
Results: Acupuncture treatment led to significant strengthening of the genioglossus, or tongue muscle. After treatment, patients’ tongues were three or four times stronger than those of patients in the control group. The end result? Across the study group, the average apnea-hypopnea index was reduced by half.

Another study conducted on the effects of acupuncture on sleep apnea was published in 2010 in the journal Acupuncture in Medicine.
The study concluded that “A single session of either manual acupuncture or electro-acupuncture had an acute effect in reducing the AHI as well as the number of nocturnal respiratory events of patients presenting with moderate OSA.”
The popular sleep apnea doctor Dr. Steven Park notes that “in a follow-up study to their previous paper showing that 10 acupuncture treatments can lower the AHI by 50%, the…authors performed sleep studies just before and after one acupuncture treatment, and found a 49% improvement in the apnea hypopnea index. The apnea index improved by 86%, and the hypopnea index dropped 39%.
Here’s what other people have said about the effect of acupuncture treatment on their sleep apnea:
Below is an example of a simple image section: use images or icons to illustrate a point you're making. This can assist in your story telling or be used to showcase features (although only if you use it further down the page, after the product reveal).
“… My back relief was instantaneous but even more amazing has been the complete cure of my sleep apnea. I underwent two operations for sleep apnea, both unsuccessful. I’ve used a CPAP machine for three years. After four months of acupuncture treatment the CPAP sits by the bed unused. That’s incredible!”
“For over 4 years, I slept with a CPAP machine to “treat” my sleep apnea. This worked, but sleeping with the machine was less than ideal. It was uncomfortable and noisy. I would often take it off in my sleep because it was so annoying.
The prospect of sleeping hooked up to the CPAP machine for the rest of my life was a very depressing situation. I wasn’t referred to acupuncture for this condition, but I wish I had been –years ago! I was not new to acupuncture, but I just didn’t think of it as a resource for this condition.
It wasn’t until I really got fed up with using the CPAP machine that I started researching alternative sleep apnea treatments on the internet that I thought to search some sites on acupuncture and found a few references. None sounded terribly promising, but I called up an acupuncturist and asked if she had had any success treating sleep apnea. She gave me a 50/50 chance that acupuncture might help. The rest is history!
After my first acupuncture treatment, there was marked improvement, but it only lasted a few days. Since that time, and several sessions later, the treatment “holds” for 2 weeks. I’m hopeful that I will be able to stretch the treatments further and further apart in time. Now I have more energy during the day because I am sleeping better at night. I wake up so much more rested, and my throat is not raw from breathing through my mouth and snoring. And my husband is much happier and better rested too!”
Let’s be clear on one thing: finding the right acupuncturist is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to curing your sleep apnea through acupuncture. If you’re not being treated by someone who has been trained in specific techniques, you’re wasting your time and money.
So how can you find the BEST acupuncturist for YOU? How can you know what to expect before doing (and during, and after) acupuncture therapy?
One of the biggest obstacles to getting proper acupuncture treatment is knowing exactly where to start, and what steps to take next.
My “Cure Your Sleep Apnea With Acupuncture” program provides step-by-step instructions on how to find the best acupuncturist, how to prepare for your treatment, what to expect, and much more!
The Cure Your Sleep Apnea With Acupuncture Program was developed in cooperation with Dr. Jing Liu of Harvard University.
Dr. Jing Liu comes from a long line of Chinese traditional healers. Both his father and grandfather were traditional healers. He became interested in traditional medicine when he saw its power in healing arthritis and had a Ph.D. in integrative medicine.
Dr. Jing Liu is the first researcher in the world to use functional MRI to study the effects of acupuncture therapy on the body.
