What is snoring?

Snoring is caused by the vibration of the soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue. Studies indicate that at least 30% of adults snore. Snoring can be a major factor in sleep disturbance and the resulting stress, leading to lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability in the long term, snoring can also lead to high blood pressure and heart problems.

Hi Sarah

I've had my Somnowell for about a year now and thought you might appreciate some feedback.

I cannot recommend this device highly enough. From day one I ceased to be a snorer. In fact the first morning, my wife confessed she had checked whether I was still breathing or not because I was so quiet. I sleep more deeply and wake up refreshed and relaxed - more than I have done for years. The device is easy to fit and comfortable to wear and being able to talk and drink with it in place is a huge improvement on the mouthguard models. It is also great knowing that when we visit people overnight I won't disturb anyone. One effect has been that I now tend to naturally sleep with my jaw in the right position so I can nap during the day without snoring. I hadn't realised how much my sleep was being disturbed.

I had looked every alternative I could find - the usual array of mouthguards, nose clip, sprays and tens machines - none of which worked. I also researched the available medical alternatives which again do not get particularly glowing reports from users. I saw the device on a TV programme and decided to find out more about it. At first sight the cost looks outrageous. However, when I worked out how much the not-so-effective alternatives were over a 20 year period, the Somnowell is far more economical.

As you can probably tell I am delighted with the Somnowell. But equally I want to thank you and your staff for the very positive, professional experience of being fitted for the device.



Hi Sarah

Wow - what a great device.

I have had 3 nights since getting this kit from you and I have had unbroken sleep of 8 hours per night. Not done 8 hours in a single night for years. I am so awake -a better spent ?1000 than that which spent our recent holiday !

Thank you
