Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when we breathe during sleep, the throat and upper airway muscles relax and may begin to vibrate (this vibration is what causes snoring). Recent studies have shown that 1 in 4 adults in the United States (31% of all men and 21% of all women over 18) are at “high risk” for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (based on analysis of the National Sleep Foundation’s 2005 Sleep in America survey).
It is estimated that the American public spends over $3 billion every year on the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea!

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is simply when your airway becomes obstructed during sleep, causing you to stop breathing.
When we are awake we have tightness, or tonicity, in our upper airway muscles, but during sleep these muscles relax.
By moving to a lighter stage of sleep your brain is able to contract your throat and upper airways muscles to open your airway and help you resume breathing.
