You have probably never heard of anti-snoring rings. This is because they are not as famous as other stop snoring solutions. Snoring rings use acupressure reflexology, a principle that has been around for more than 4000 years.
Acupressure reflexology is the practice of providing relief through the feet or hands using different pressure points (meridians/acupoints). Anti-snoring rings make use of tui na, an ancient Chinese medicine, to provide relief.
How it works
All rings have the same shape and design and are normally worn on the little finger. One end of these rings is usually open, which makes them easy to wear. The rings also have a small bulging metal piece on their inside that puts pressure in the meridian point.The meridians are normally nowhere near the actual place that the problem emanates.Therefore, to use these rings effectively, you have to insert it at the very base of your little finger just one hour prior to sleeping.
It is not recommended to wear the rings for more than 12 hours.
