After working as a Physical Therapist for decades, a pattern started to emerge. Tightness in the iliacus caused by too much sitting, overuse in athletics, or being too flexible was causing problems all over the body. I talk all about this in my bestselling book, Tight Hip, Twisted Core - The Key to Unresolved Pain.
After mastering how to release the iliacus with my own hands for my clients, I went on a mission to develop a self-release tool so people everywhere could empower themselves and get rid of pain on their own.
I tested dozens of existing tools but none of them could provide the right amount of pressure to the right spot. Over the last few years, I have painstakingly tested many variations and have finally perfected the Hip Hook. It is the only tool that perfectly targets the iliacus muscle and releases tension the way only a professionally trained PT can.

How is the Hip Hook different from other hip flexor or psoas release tools?
Other tools on the market do not release or address the iliacus at all. While both the psoas and iliacus must be addressed, the iliacus is the key to resolving long term pain relief. The Hip Hook releases both muscles by replicating a skilled practitioner’s thumb, offering a more precise pressure on the psoas when you lie on it. The Hip Hook’s tip then rotates to access the previously inaccessible iliacus muscle.
Can't I just use a tennis ball or foam roller?
A tennis ball is not big enough to reach even the psoas, let alone the iliacus. If you watch the animation of how the Hip Hook must rotate to provide an angular pressure on the iliacus, you can see for yourself how a ball just won’t do. The Hip Hook's angle and magnitude of pressure is the most effective way to release the tension here and replicates the technique that I developed with my hands and have been using with my clients for decades. Once you try it, you will find that its design is able to target the iliacus in a way that no other self release technique or tool can.
What is the difference between the psoas and the iliacus muscle?
The psoas and iliacus are intimately connected but two separate muscles. If there is tension in one, there is likely tension in both. If you release the psoas without addressing the iliacus, your results will be short term.
Will this help sacroiliac joint pain? Piriformis syndrome? Sciatica? Pelvic pain? Other areas?
The iliacus is directly responsible for sacroiliac (SI) pain. A tight iliacus will play tug of war with the piriformis and create severe tension, often resulting in piriformis syndrome and sciatica. This tension around the pelvis commonly results in pelvic floor tightness as well. Tension in the iliacus creates a cascade of issues up and down the body.
