  • What type of issue brought you to this product? tight hip flexor
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? Likely, not enough stretching

Love this "tool"

This little ball enables me to "hit" evey knot in my body from my neck to my lower buttocks! It is as good as having a massage therapist at your disposal ANYTIME of day! I now incorprate stretching into my routine when I use this ball which is 3-4 times a week.

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Low back pain
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? C-section, hysterectomy, hip injury

Gentle Pressure

I had a c-section and a hysterectomy many years ago and then on top of that a hip injury. I have suffered with low back pain, groin pain, and hip pain for many years. I have been through physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic adjustments, but never got long lasting relief. The Hip Flexor Release Ball helped me gradually introduce pressure into the iliacus and psoas so I could then use the Hip Hook tool. I feel much better now and I can tell my hips are gradually realigning.

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Unable to walk very far without hip pain after being unable to walk for 6 weeks after a leg fracture.
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? Fracture of the tibial plateau during a total knee replacement -- a 0.01% occurrence, but that only means I'm a 1-in-10,000 person.
  • How effective was this tool at releasing tension? Not so greatOkIt's magical!

Hits the Spot(s)

Certainly helps to reach the iliacpsoas without resorting to a trained massage therapist digging into your lower intestines. So far, I've actually had a bit more luck with the ball than the Hip Hook, but I anticipate that the Hook will help focus on very specific adhesions.

IT’S PERFECT!

Perfect size and perfectly firm. Great to use in the derrière area as well as putting it on the wall for “massaging” the scapula area. THANKS, ALETHA!

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Pain in lower back and the gluteal muscles.
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? I pitch to my kids travel baseball team. I have to bend on my right side to pick baseballs out of a bucket, than pitch to the kids. It’s this repetitive motion that fires up my lower back and gluteal muscles.
  • How could we have made this product easier to use? It’s perfect
  • How effective was this tool at releasing tension? Not so greatOkIt's magical!

I love this little guy!

This little guy hits spots that the foam roller can’t get. The pressure and massage like effect I get from using the ball greatly reduces the tension and pain from my lower back through my gluteal muscles.

Solved 10 years of chronic back pain

I have suffered for over 10 years with chronic lower back, glutes, and upper back pain. Additionally, I have suffered for 5 years from a cramp in my hip - following bi-latteral hip replacement - anytime I try to walk more that a block or two. First I read Christine’s Book - Tight hip, Twisted Core, then bought the Hip Flexor Ball. In the beginning, my glutes, hips, and back were so tight, it took me over an hours to hit all the trigger points with the ball. I am now two months into the use of the ball, and virtually ALL my pain is gone. I now have to search to find any trigger points as I maintain my daily procedure for releasing the tight muscles. I am now walking 30 minutes daily, which is something I have not been able to do since my hip replacement. Used to be I could only stand for 15 minutes before needing to sit to relieve my back. That’s gone now! This has give me a new life.

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Low back and hip pain. Also my papas muscle itself was extremely tight and my left lower abdomen always hurt.
  • What activity do you believe is responsible for this issue? Yoga and running
  • How could we have made this product easier to use? No, you nailed it. Your instructions are very easy to follow and your supportive videos are amazing.
  • How effective was this tool at releasing tension? Not so greatOkIt's magical!

Magical

It works so quickly! As soon a I finish I have a nice lifted low back curve, my thighs touch the floor and I no longer feel weighted on my sacrum. It immediately puts me into ideal alignment. I have a more fluid range of motion when bending forward as well. I’m really amazed by how effective it is and how different I feel afterward. I feel like a whole bunch of tension just left my body that I never even knew I had. This is incredible!

  • What type of issue brought you to this product? Lower back pain

Piriformis relief

This ball is large enough to reach and massage the piriformis and isn’t hard enough to be excruciatingly painful. I’m able to relieve pain that I previously had to endure.

  • How could we have made this product easier to use? It's the perfect shape and size.
  • How effective was this tool at releasing tension? Not so greatOkIt's magical!

Ball of Joy

I purchased the hip flexor release ball when I purchased Christine's book, Tight Hip Twisted Core. The ball has been very beneficial in myofascial release.
