It is possible that acupuncture can help...but the use of chinese herbs would have to be incorporated into the treatment in order to reduce inflammation in the pharynx and sinuses.  Your acupuncturist may wish to make suggestions on dietary change as well.  Good luck!

It can make a difference.  Snoring happens because the tissues in the throat and the back of the mouth are loose and obstruct the airway.  If there is inflammation or phlegm accumulation, that adds to the problem. 

I agree with Leslie, a combination of acupuncture and herbs would be best.  Local acupuncture points can help tone the throat muscles, and both acupuncture and herbs can help with inflammation and phlegm.  

Good luck to you!
