WCAX-TV reports on a patient group that is hoping a musical instrument will strengthen their airway muscles enough to treat their sleep apnea.

Ellie Kenworthy suffers from sleep apnea, and she’s one of many people here at the Vermont Naturopathic Clinic in Burlington using an old instrument to give her a new way to get some shut eye.

“I’ve been sleeping really well and I think the others in the class acknowledge that too because there is something therapeutic maybe about the breathing,” Kenworthy said of playing her new didgeridoo.
