Tight tight tight

So my hips lately have been very tight, as the title says, the last few months.

I have rolled and stretched, done mobility and tried to help with the tightness but man it just doesn't seem to be working...

It hasn't impacted my squat depth (hit 445x2, 455x1 today) but is killing my ability to drop into the snatch bottom and on cleans. I really have to force myself down and wider feet than I would like.

Anyone have any experience with this just "showing" up (yeah I'm 40 now) and what helped? I have contemplated massage therapy but it is really hard to find someone who can and will work that area over well.

I thought about the Arosti people but the few I know who have gone to them for other stuff haven't seemed like it did "wonders".

My main goal right now is to loosen up the hips (outside around the socket) so I can get a faster and better drive into my snatch and cleans. I have been chair sitting more than I want (working on trying to open a rock climbing gym in town). So I have been taking breaks and standing and stretching a little but to no avail.

Appreciate the help and guidance in what has worked for you all.
