Our Story

Featured and Seen on

Our Mission: Live more, hurt less

Address the root cause of pain

Hint: You don’t have to foam roll everything! One percent of your muscles are causing 90% of your pain. A rotated pelvis creates misalignment through the hips, creating pain in the lower back, hips, knees, and feet. Even though you may be feeling pain elsewhere, it can often be traced back to this tension and imbalance in these core muscles: the hip flexors.

Simple and effective

The Hip Hook is the world’s first tool designed to relax the hard to reach iliacus muscle. Simply find your “sweet spot” inside the pelvic bone (don't worry: we'll give you a map). Then standing against the wall, or laying on the floor, roll over and apply body weight to the magic tip to immediately release tension and reduce pain.

Improve performance, reduce pain

Whether performance means qualifying for Ironman or carrying twins + laundry up four flight of stairs, having a strong relaxed core makes all the difference. Tightness in the hip flexors affects your ability to move, sit, stand, or lay down with ease and without pain.
