The RAD Helix has low back extension and three-dimensional muscular release down to a science. No joke, this baby puts traditional foam rollers to shame. The arched design replicates a double helix, the building blocks of the body. And for good reason too. This anatomical shape is almost human, relentlessly unlocking stiffness on two planes and flushing out toxins to promote healthy, open posture.
You can also put the RAD Rod through the centre to double up on Mobility Tools.
How To Use your RAD Helix Roller
Lay back over the roller with it at the top of your low back (think of an imaginary line going straight through your belly button to find the spot). Relax over the Helix for 10–20 seconds, and then move it down 1–2 inches at a time toward the top of the pelvis.
Whole Back Flush
Lay back on the roller positioning it just above your pelvis and roll back and forth in 6-inch movements, working all the way up to the top of the ribcage.
Lay back on the roller, positioning it just above your pelvis. Slide your heels up to create a 90-degree bend in your knees. Rotate both knees to the left until they touch the floor and then repeat on the right. Move the roller up 2 inches and repeat, working your way up the back.
Hold one side of the roller and roll your whole body halfway onto one side. Push through your heels and make small 3-inch motions back and forth, working from the top of the neck to the bottom.
Lay facedown and roll halfway up onto your side. Extend your lower arm and place one side of the roller under it. Roll back and forth in 6-inch movements, gently massaging the muscles on the outside of the shoulder. Work up pressure slowly through multiple sessions.
Sit down with your torso leaned back and your hands behind to support. Place one side of the roller below one glute and roll back and forth, rotating the torso to access different areas.
Sit down with your torso leaned back and your hands behind to support. Place one side of the roller under your leg, just forward of the sit bone. Raise your non-working leg up so the knee is bent at 90 degrees. Push back and forth with the heel, making 4-inch movements and working slowly toward the knee. Raise your torso vertically to intensify.

There are 2 delivery options to UK residents:
-> Royal Mail 48: 2 – 3 day untracked service that costs £3.29
-> DPD Next Working Day: 1 day tracked service with a 1 hour delivery slot that costs £4.99 (excludes NI, Highlands and Islands)
We dispatch orders 3pm every day so if you order before this time on a week day your order will be dispatched that day. Please note neither service is guaranteed in terms of time. Sometimes parcels get delayed which is out of our control, lost packages will of course be replaced or refunded. Please see our Terms and Conditions page for full info.
Free delivery on UK orders over £40 (that’s almost half what you needed to spend before). If you want it next Day it’s a flat £4.99 but drops to £2.99 if you spend over £40. Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands and Channel Islands will go through Royal Mail rather than DPD – Next day service is not available or guaranteed to these areas, but we send with Royal Mail 48 so there is a 93% chance (according to Royal Mail) that it will arrive in 48 hours. Please note, as per our terms and conditions, the next day service is not guaranteed, nor are you able to claim a refund on non-delivery next day. In the last 12 months 98.5% of our shipments with DPD were either delivered next day or a delivery attempt was made (i.e. if the item wasn’t delivered it was because the recipient was out). That means only 1.5% of items were either delayed or misplaced at the depot temporarily. For full info on your rights please see the Terms & Conditions page.
Returns and Refunds
If you are not happy with your order or you need to change something, the easiest thing to do is to email us so that we both have a record of it. We are happy to exchange any item for you at no extra charge for UK customers (you will need to cover postage of item sent back to us). Overseas customers will need to pay for postage of the replacement item. If an item is damaged or the wrong item was sent we will usually cover return postage.
For a refund you will need to return your order to us within 28 days of receipt of your order. After this time you will no longer be eligible for a refund. We aim to process your refund the same week it arrives back with us.
If you would like to view our full Terms and Conditions please follow this link.
If you would like to exchange or refund a product/order that’s fine (provided it is before the 21 days as described above and in our Terms and Conditions). Hopefully we can make it quick and easy for you. In both instances you will need to send the order back to the address below:
Unit 8 Coity Crescent
Bridgend Industrial Estate
This is done at your own cost. We would recommend UK customers sending 2nd class. If the postage packet is less than 1″ (25mm) thick it can be sent as a large letter, which will be cheaper, at around £1.19 (up to 250g). A shoebox size parcel will cost you around £2.80 to return (under 2kg). These prices are according to the Royal Mail website as of 12th January 2016. You are covered to a value of £20 insurance on this, so if you want extra piece of mind you can get your item sent with a signature at around an extra £1. Please note returning an order is at your cost so it is up to you to decide which service you opt for. If the item fails to arrive with us again that is for you to take up with Royal Mail. We are not responsible for lost returns.
Please return your item(s) with a note inside specifying change in size or colour. If you have the original delivery slip (also emailed to you) this is even better and makes life easier at our end). We will send out your replacement item once your order arrives back with us. If anything is out of stock we will either ring or email to see what you’d like to do. The exchange will be sent by us to you at our cost with Royal Mail 2nd class. If you’d like to have it sent by any other service you will be required to pay for that service. We think this is pretty cool as some other companies make you pay the extra delivery, sneaky devils.
Returns / Refunds
As above, please return to the address with a note inside asking for a refund. UK customers are covered under the UK government’s Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (formerly Distance Selling Regulations or DSR), which means if you’re not happy with your order you can return it for a refund. The time limit is set in our terms and conditions (28 days from receipt of order). If you’re not sure just give us a call and we will let you know what’s what. You are again liable for the return postage cost, as per CCR and our T&C’s (which you will have signed at purchase). Please note DSR only applies to UK based customers and not business customers (public sending to their work address does not come under business customers, we understand if you’re buying a t-shirt and getting it sent your office the likelihood is it’s not a business purchase…).
Refunds are usually done on a Friday each week, if you’ve sent your order back and it’s been 7 days and still not heard anything, give us a gentle reminder. We want your repeat business so we don’t want to mess you round! PayPal payments go into your account immediately; card payments take 2-3 days (though you’ll have an email receipt straight away confirming it’s underway).
Hopefully that’s all super duper – if you’ve got any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Email is best (firstname.lastname@example.org) as we’ve both got a track of what was said and when, so it avoids any confusion. Other than that, give us a phone 01656 651 134.
When ordering you will receive a series of automated emails to help you understand where your order is in our system. Hopefully the below information will help you should you have any questions.
Card / PayPal Payments
If you are paying by card or PayPal and the transaction is successful, you will have an automated email informing you that your order is “Processing”. You will be given an order number (#123 for example) and receive a pdf invoice detailing your order.
We then print off your order and mark it for dispatch which is labelled “Completed”. Don’t panic if you’ve not received your order yet, as it’s marked as “Completed” to print off the delivery slip inside your parcel.
If for any reason the order is not processed you will receive an email saying that the order has “Failed”. No money will be taking from your card or your PayPal account at this point.
