About Us

KOAPRO makes the ultimate fascia massage tools and accessories to help you soothe sore muscles, increase flexibility, and optimize muscle performance. All of our products were developed based on a unique combination of science, technology, and East Asian holistic techniques. They are patented utilizing our human touch design, which mimics a massage therapist’s fingers, palms, and elbows to temporarily relieve muscular pain at a customized pace, pressure, and depth.

Our fascial tools have a proprietary ergonomic design to target your trigger points. The ultimate benefit is the balancing of your “chi,” or natural energy flow, to increase flexibility, range of motion, and allow you to feel your best. We utilize safe, biocompatible materials, and ingredients that are good for your body and our planet.

We hope that through using KOAPRO, you find the power within yourself to find joy and live your best life without restriction.

Our Story

Alumni of UCLA Microbiology & Molecular Genetics and UCSD Bioengineering, Clinton and Lisa Yee combined their 4 decades of expertise to establish KOAPRO. Their personal challenges with muscle pain led to profound understanding of its debilitating effect and ignited a determination to bring to life solutions that would enhance muscular health and performance globally.

A distinct influence in KOAPRO's formation traces back to Lisa's father, a competitive bodybuilder of Chinese heritage born and raised in South Vietnam. Alongside his military service during the Vietnam War, he immersed himself in the study and practice of ancient Chinese acupressure over 40 years. Renowned for mitigating pain issues that Western medicine couldn't, he imparted knowledge to Lisa about soft tissue manipulation and decompression of trigger points, thereby instilling in her a holistic understanding of pain relief.

After surviving a severe car accident, Clinton faced an enduring period of constant discomfort. Later, Lisa confronted her own health hurdle when diagnosed with scoliosis. Their navigation through personal health adversities underscored the critical need for enhanced solutions.

Adversity did not dampen their spirit; instead, it became a catalyst for innovation. Driven by their unique experiences and dissatisfaction with the options available, they marshaled their knowledge of bioengineering and biosciences. At KOAPRO, we don't just build products; we engineer wellness solutions born out of real experiences and enriched by diverse cultural wisdom. Join us on this journey towards a healthier, active life.


At KOAPRO, we've infused the essence of joy, bravery, and excellence in our name, inspired by New Zealand's Māori and Hawaiian cultures. "KOA" in Māori embodies the emotions of joy and happiness while it
stands for "brave warrior" in Hawaiian. This fusion of meaning illuminates our commitment to each individual's journey towards wellness and strength.

The "Pro" suffix in KOAPRO amplifies our dedication to professional-grade quality. Every component we use, every ingredient we select, mirrors this commitment to excellence. This is reflected not just in the superior performance of our massage tools, but also in the trust placed in us by professional massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and personal trainers.

KOA ELITE is being rebranded to KOAPRO. KOAPRO continues to embody the original mission of improving muscle health and performance to enable an active lifestyle.

At KOAPRO, we're not merely crafting tools; we're designing bridges between you and optimized muscular health. We're fostering a culture of excellence where top-tier professionals and everyday consumers alike can tap
into the profound power of self-care and holistic well-being. Discover KOAPRO - where joy meets bravery and quality takes center stage.
