Little hook

5 years of product development, countless repairs, improvements, innovations and reformations. To sum it up, we rebuild Painhook with all the know-how that has build up and accumulated during the years.

The result is much better than before.
You see, notice and feel it.
Painhook has never been this good.

Kipukoukku PRO isompi lapa

Larger and more reachable blade

The size of the blade has been raised. This improves the reach and usability of the hook. The hook reaches easier and through the wider area than before. Including places that were difficult to access previously. The greater dimension was the customer's most requested reform. In PRO model this much requested hope is now reality.

Kipukoukku PRO parannettu muoto

Improved shape of the blade

With the new Hook it´s even easier to reach further. This is influenced by the increased size of the hook, but also because of the better shaped blade. With the blade´s new shape, the corners of the hook are more straightforward and take less space from the inside of the blade. The user has more space to control the hook and it reaches further.

Kipukoukku PRO lukkonivel

New lock joint

One of the biggest problems in the old model was the loosening of the joint with the use. This may lead to blades flip over and to made hook unusable. We developed a whole new kind of joint that completely eliminates this flip over problem. Even though the joints are not so visible, it is one of the most important parts of the hook. The PRO model lock joint ensures that Hook works smoothly now and in the future.

Kipukoukku PRO nivelruuvi

430% stronger screw joint

When hooking, high pressure will focus to the pivoting arm between the blade and the handle. This could lead over time to the bending or breaking of the screw joint. PRO model has a completely new screw joint that is 430% stronger than the one used previously. A stronger screw will bring the much-needed hardness to the character of the hook.

Kipukoukku PRO kaareva varsi

Longer curved handle

The new handle is significantly longer than the old one, which means a better dimension. In addition to the length, the shape of the arm has become curved, which enhances ergonomics, comfort and further dimension. The curved shape leaves more space between the hook and the user. In particular, this benefits for the bigger size hook users.

Better grip

There was not really any kind of grip features in the old hook. This caused problems especially for older and people suffering from illness. The problem has now been corrected in two ways. Depending on the model, in handle there is now a cover with a very good grip. In addition, the little hook acts as an excellent support point for the lower hand.

Pleasant hold

Hooks usage and hold has been developed with special attention. The handle is covered with a soft and with better hold giving grip (Special and Custom versions). The arm is more circular and ergonomically shaped for the first time. Now the hook sits on your hand far more naturally and comfortably.

Kipukoukku PRO hierontapiikki

Massage spike

At the bottom of the little hook there is Intentionally created a bit spiny point. We call this massage spike. It is a good idea to put some painful points on the thigh, for example. Massage spike offers one more excellent extra feature for treating sore muscles.

Little hook

A lower massage hook is placed at the bottom of the handle. This is primarily designed for the massage of smaller muscles, where the big hook has been too clumsy. The feet, the muscles of the arm, and the thighs in the other are excellent points for the little hook. The little hook also acts as a support for a lower hand. This idea originally came from a rheumatoid client who had difficulty of pressing the hooks handle. And just to be able hold the handle. The little hook offers the best possible solution for this.

This is how you treat with the Painhook

Lapaluun seutu

1. Shoulder blade area

Take hold of the hook's handle with both hands and place the hook over your shoulder. Place the end of the hook next to your shoulder blade. Start pressing your back and stretching your muscle. Move the end of the hook upwards, downwards or to the side a few centimeters at a time. When you find a sore spot, you'll reach the best results when you pull downwards and push the handle outwards as the arrows in the picture demonstrate. Press the muscle continuously for 10 -30 seconds until the pain eases. You can also roll your shoulder while keeping the end of the hook on the muscle. This relaxes muscles after you have just applied pressure on them.

2. Trapezius muscle

When you work on your trapezius muscle, your upper hand does the work by pressing the muscle in a pumping motion as you go along bit by bit. This gives your muscle more elasticity and your energies will start to flow. You'll also be better able to move your head around. You can work through your entire neck by turning the handle of the hook sidewards.

3. The base of the skull and neck

Look at the picture for the correct position of the hands. Place the end of the hook against the base of the skull where the neck muscles attach to the skull and rotate the hook using light, revolving moves. This helps accelerate your blood circulation around the head area. Headache, dizziness etc. is relieved when the brain receives more oxygen. At the same time, you are treating the acupuncture points of your eyes at the base of your skull.

4. Neck

Place the hook in a "rolling" position and use the grip shown in the picture. Roll the round part of the hook against your neck using agreeable pressure. Change the spot every now and then.

5. Chect muscle

This same "rolling" position can be used to treat the neck and under the clavicle, often a very tight muscle group, the chest muscles. The diaphragm, the abdominal region, the thigh and calf muscles can be treated same way.

6. Shoulder area

Make the muscles found behind your shoulder supple with the PainHook. Grab the hook's hinge pin with the hand you wish to attend to. Place the hook behind your shoulder and press downwards with the handle. Feel the force move from the front to the back. Press away your pain with the PainHook. You'll be able to move and raise your hand better.

7. Back

You can easily massage your entire back area with the PainHook. Press and pull the handle towards yourself as in the picture or grab the hook's blade and rotate the end of the hook on the sore spot.

8. Sciatica and buttocks

Use the hook as shown in the picture to reach the deep muscles on your backside. Press intensely. In this area, use both hands to move the hook according to what feels best. You can also use this grip to work on your back muscles and feet muscles as well as the points where muscles attach to the bone. By placing the hook under your armpit you can relieve the tension of your long back muscles, shoulder blade muscles and shoulder muscles.

9. Thighs and calves

You can use the hook to relax your thighs and calves. Close the hook around your thigh as shown in the picture. The handle should be placed between your legs. Rotate in a figure eight pattern with a loose grip to massage your muscles. Place the end of the hook on top of the handle or keep the hook somewhat open, depending on the size of your thigh. The most important thing is to be able to grasp the end of the hook and the handle at the same time.

10. Soles

The PainHook can even be used while watching television, especially when doing "reflex zone therapy", in other words, when working on the sore spots of your soles. Press the sore spots gently with the hook as shown in the picture. You can also try pressing your heel against the floor. You can use big or small hook for treatment. With the smaller hook you can massage more precisely different sore spots of your soles.

Effectiveness of the Painhook is not based on classical Scandinavian massage, but on alternately pressing method which is used for massaging in the Far East and in Turkey for example. In alternately pressing massagist presses the muscles with their thumb, and moving it in between of the presses in the adjacent spot in the muscle. It has been found to be even more effective than regular massage, and it can even treat inflamed muscles. The alternate pressing method releases our blood circulation in the muscle, and puts our metabolic waste in motion. The muscle receives the oxygen better and the body cleansing. Drinking plenty of water helps our body to get rid of the toxics. The head of the pain hook imitates the thumb of the massagist, giving the same effect just at your home. When finding a sore spot, press the same point continuously for approximately 10-30 seconds. As the tense muscle relaxes, blood circulation is increased and you feel a warm sensation. As our body is put into a positive spin, it begins to heal its ailments on its own.
