Who Uses HawkGrips?

Our instruments are considered the industry gold standard. That’s why the world’s top institutions choose HawkGrips.

A Few Words From Our Founder

I originally conceived HawkGrips instruments through my own real-life experience as a rehab patient after I nearly died in a skiing accident. I learned first hand that IASTM practitioners are only as good as their tools and techniques, and that’s why I set out to create the world’s finest instruments and educational programs in the industry.

HOW THE FINEST INSTRUMENTS IN THE WORLD ARE CREATED

Serious professionals who are dedicated to their craft demand the very best. That’s why HawkGrips instruments are cast from the very finest surgical grade stainless steel in existence. They’re shaped and honed by skilled American craftsmen with an eye for precision with good old-fashioned sweat, then finished and hand polished to perfection. Not a single imperfection is tolerated, only the finest instruments in our industry are produced.

HawkGrips are not only impressive to look at, but their quality is something you can feel in your hand the moment you pick them up. With our patented cross-hatch gripping texture, you’ll find the instruments are designed to decrease fatigue and slippage, and to assist in providing the best treatment experience for both you and your patient.

HawkGrips are beautiful IASTM instruments you’ll own for a lifetime, which is why we also guarantee them forever.

IASTM: A Performance Enhancement Tool

The human skin is the the largest organ of the integumentary system. It is enriched with dense neurological tissue that permeates the entire body and provides a uniquely accessible means of influencing tone and function of underlying structures. Fascia and muscle generate and transfer kinetic energy in an environment by which functional movement relies on a combination of elastic recoil and eccentric control around a focal, multi-planar axis.

(OK… that may be a slight overstatement). Why is this condition so dreaded? Because when treating tennis elbow, everything works and nothing works. Tennis elbow is one of the most commonly diagnosed and discussed musculoskeletal conditions known to humankind. An article by Arnett et al. on the evaluation and treatment of lateral epicondylitis reported a 2-percent incidence in the general population, with a significantly higher rate among manual laborers.

How to Relieve Tension Headaches with HawkGrips by Treating the Upper Trapezius Muscle

There are many reasons, but mostly I just feel bad about asking fellow clinicians to treat me when I know they’ve already been treating patients all day. Recently though, something wonderful happened. I asked Mark Shires, MS, ATC, PES, to treat my left shoulder and neck because of tension headaches I’ve been experiencing and he said yes!
