This is an interesting little device. I’ve never seen another snoring solution like it. The problem is, that leaves us with a big question, does it really work? I’ll tell you what my opinion is, but you need to know a few things about this product before I reveal my stance.

How It’s Supposed To Work

The AcuRest device is completely different from anything else on the market. This product is two simple little bands that go around your thumb and index finger. These bands or rings were designed to work with your natural flow of Chi. If you aren’t familiar with Chi, it also goes by the name of Qi. It is a Chinese term for our energy or life force. There is a lot to Chi and its manipulation, but AcuRest uses this force and its principles to prevent snoring.

Background

On the company website it mentions that clinical trials have been completed. That’s great, but there is something wrong here. If in fact clinical trials have been completed, then where are the results? Simply saying that they were successful is not enough. A fifty percent failure rate can be considered a clinical success.

Also, why would they go through the hassles and expenses associated with clinical trials if they don’t want to publish the findings? Since the exact results were not given, you have to assume that they were not worth publishing. As a side note, Chi has been up for debate in the scientific community for years. Even they can’t decide whether it exists or not.

This product has not been approved by the FDA. Among anti-snoring devices this isn’t uncommon, but it is definitely a mark against such an unusual solution. If you check with the BBB you won’t find anything either. This also means that no complaints have been filed.

However, there is one thing I do like about this device’s background. That is the 30 day money back guarantee. This is pretty standard but nice to see nonetheless.

Perks

Although this solution is very different when compared to any other, the main benefit is obvious. If you are into Chi and traditional Eastern medicine then this may be something of interest to you. If you aren’t, then it is at least safe to try. The worst case scenario would be putting the bands on too tight and waking up with purple fingers.

Experiences

You won’t find many reviews for this product. Maybe only a few people have tried it. Maybe nobody thinks it’s worth talking about. I really don’t. This product seems to be more of a novelty than anything else. You know as well as I do that when something is good people talk about it. People just aren’t talking about this solution, so take that for what it’s worth.

Wrap Up

Overall, this snoring solution may work for some people. It seems unlikely that it would work for the majority of people though. If it did work for the majority of people then I’m sure they would have let everyone know by publishing the results of the clinical trial.

There just isn’t a good enough case for this solution for me to recommend it. It may be interesting, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth spending your money on.
