The Hip Hook releases tension and solves for pain in the most crucial part of your body - the iliacus and psoas muscles. Tight hip flexors must be treated to restore the entire body to an optimal state. Both muscles must be relaxed to alleviate your pain permanently. Prolonged and applied pressure will solve your pain for good. Simplicity is key.
Let your belly button act as a guide to find your hip flexors and the Hip Hook will take care of the rest. Thousands have already experienced relief and recovery by finally targeting one of the most important muscles in the body.
Distributes pressure precisely, evenly and comfortably every time - mimics the skilled thumb of a practitioner
Provides the ideal combination of flexibility and rigidity for maximum control and leverage
Rugged design provides durability and stiffness for strength you can depend on
Geometry ensures targeted pressure through rotational and translational movement for maximum relief, prolonged pressure requires angular precision to pin the right muscle for long holds
The Hip Hook is innovative in both design and method. Whereas other tools address the psoas only, the Hip Hook mirrors a skilled practitioner's thumb, allowing it to also reach your iliacus.

Other tools on the market focus only on the psoas muscle, but do not address the iliacus muscle at all. For best results, you need to treat both muscles.
The Hip Hook was designed by a physical therapist to access both the psoas AND iliacus muscles, making it the most effective tool to release your hip flexors.
The size and shape of the Hip Hook’s tip replicates a skilled practitioner’s fingers, allowing it to penetrate deeper into your muscles and with more precision than other tools.
Press into the psoas with the tip straight up. Access angles that you could never reach before by pressing down on the handle to rotate the tip of the Hip Hook. This is how you get to the iliacus.
Your hip flexor is made up of the iliacus and psoas, which are intimately connected near the hip, but are still two separate muscles. These muscles perform similar, yet different functions in the body. They also have different attachment points and are innervated by different nerve roots.
If there is tension in one, there is likely tension in both. Releasing tension in one but not the other will lead to short-term results. For the best and longest-lasting results, you should be releasing both your iliacus and psoas muscles.
No. A lacrosse ball is not big enough to reach the psoas or the iliacus. While a larger ball may be able to reach the psoas in a diffuse way, it still will not be able to target the iliacus on the inside of the pelvic bone.
The patented design of the Hip Hook allows for firm, direct, and precise pressure applied to both the psoas and iliacus muscles from many different angles.
Once you try it, you will find that it is able to target the psoas and iliacus in a way that no ball or other self release technique or tool can.
Tension in the iliacus and psoas muscles can have a huge impact throughout the entire body because it can twist your core affecting not only your back and hips, but your lower and upper body.
