Review: Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring

Despite the fact that snoring is usually portrayed in full comedic glory and we’ve all chortled at partners so desperate to get a good night’s sleep, they’ve sewn cotton reels or (now this is a sewing challenge), tennis balls on the back of their sleeping partner’s PJs, snoring is categorically NO JOKE.

Unless you are in the privileged position of having a spare room in which to decamp and a partner whose feelings won’t be hurt by such an act of nocturnal treachery, for many, the only recourse is to lie there and try to quell any murderous urges to stifle the blighter with an anti-allergy pillow (well, you want to give them a fighting chance, don’t you).

When I met The Husband, he swore blind he did not snore. This was a blatant fib. Being a long-term sufferer of hay fever, depending on the pollen count, he is capable of emitting sonorous rumbles which wake me (and occasionally even him) with a start.

We’ve tried nasal strips and throat sprays with little effect and now the best defence I have is wax earplugs which manage to muffle most of the sound but not the vibration.  So it was with grudging acquiescence on his part that I managed to get him to test the Good Night Anti Snoring Ring.

The Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring is a beautifully crafted ring which uses the theory of acupressure. The ring is shaped to include “acu-activator” points which apply pressure on, uniquely, two specific points on the little finger. It is non-invasive, comfortable to wear and, more importantly, drug-free.

Acupressure is the ancient Chinese practice dating from 3,000 BC which treats a number of ailments by applying pressure to specific points on the body.

The snorer should put the ring on about 30 minutes before retiring and it should be worn only when sleeping and for no longer than 12 hours at a time. It is suitable for adults over 18 years of age but you should not wear it if you are pregnant or suffer from sleep apnea.

The Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring comes in three sizes and is supplied in its own velveteen bag for storage. It comes with a useful leaflet containing full instructions and some excellent anti-snoring advice. Best of all, the manufacturers offer a No Quibble 30 Day Money Back Guarantee – so it is a no-risk purchase. It is available to purchase at Boots, local pharmacies and health shops and online at www.goodnightsnoring.com or Amazon.

So did it work? In all honesty it did not stop The Husband’s snoring completely over the few nights we tested it, but it did make it gentler and a little quieter. The manufacturers say that it takes the body a good 3-4 days to acclimatise to the effects of acupressure so we are going to continue using it and also incorporate some of the lifestyle changes suggested.

For example, our favourite tipple is a red wine which is implicated in increasing snoring! It is also suggested that heavy snorers may benefit from two rings and that may well be required in our case. It is likely, that since The Husband is a hayfever sufferer, we need better treatment for this problem to help address his snoring and that once this is in hand, the Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring may help us to eliminate the problem altogether.

If snoring is a problem for you or your partner, you have absolutely nothing to lose and possibly a relationship to save!  If you live with a snorer you’ll know that they are very often unwilling to address the problem because, after all, it doesn’t keep THEM awake.  Those of us who do lie next to someone honking and braying whilst we think murderous thoughts and pray for a spare bedroom will try anything.

My best advice would be to see if you can get the snorer to see a GP for a proper assessment of the problem to rule out anything more serious such as sleep apnoea. In the meantime, see if an acupressure ring does indeed help you.

      You can give Therasnore a try. I have been using it for almost three months now and I am really satisfied with the results, and so is my wife :). It takes a few days to get used to it but it does work. I sleep way better now.

    I have been seeking a great anti-snoring mouthpiece. There are lots in the market today and I am thinking of what's the best to get.

    Thanks for sharing, Linda! This will be helpful, especially to those who want to have an uninterrupted, quiet sleep. And it’s safer than some of the other stuff available in the market, because all you have to do is put the ring on, and you’re all set. Cheers!
