Undoubtedly, you’ve tried just about everything to get your bed partner to stop snoring: covered their mouth, rolled them over, or put strips on their nose. But, the reality is you’re still tired and frustrated. That’s not surprising, since the bed partner of a snorer loses, on average, at least 1 hour of sleep every night.1 And because your sleep is interrupted so frequently, it isn’t deep and restful.
Maybe you’ve even resorted to sleeping in separate rooms. According to one survey we conducted with snoring specialists, more than 30% of couples come to them for help because they’re tired of sleeping apart.2
It’s time to make a change – for the better. Here are some tools that can help you talk to your bed partner about his or her snoring, and see if the Pillar Procedure could provide the relief you both want:
