Five Exercises for Snoring and Sleep Apnoea (Updated)

This updated video describes the exercises that help reduce snoring and sleep apnoea by about 50%. I have made this video for my NHS patients as I do not have access to myofunctional therapy yet in my Snoring and Sleep Apnoea clinic at the Royal National ENT Hospital (part of the UCL NHS sleep department in London). Please have a look at my myofunctional video for more information. These exercises are meant to complement the therapeutic options available in my snoring and sleep apnoea clinic on the NHS.

I have updated the sound, lighting, and made it shorter to answer the criticism I have had from the other video. I hope this is more accessible for everyone.

I see I made a mistake on the video – the paper by Camacho was done in 2015 – here is the link for you. –
Camacho Myofunctional Therapy to Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Sleep. 2015 May 1;38(5):669-75.
