DHST was conceived and developed over years of personal experience with injuries discomforts and pain, and thorough research, physical exploration, and many trials and errors finally, DHST has evolved into the physically, mentally and emotionally integrated system it is today. This unique treatment method has been designed to rid muscles of built up waste left behind by cells, scar tissue, calcium and lactic acid (HotSpots). Once these “toxins” are released from the muscle and flushed out of the body by the lymph system, muscles are able to heal and once again function normally. Immobility, inflexibility, muscle “soreness” and joint “stiffness” are relieved and musculoskeletal balance may be restored.
