Note from Yoni: Back in July we were lucky to have Daisy join our team. Her first three months were spent learning the 3 Seasons approach to strength training & fitness, and Daisy is now currently taking on new personal training clients.
Born and raised in China, Daisy Ma grew up influenced by Chinese holistic culture. Her father was an MD specializing in both traditional Chinese medicine and Western practices. This unique background would play a pivotal role in Daisy’s life and career.
Daisy grappled with severe back pain for over a decade. While regular exercise made a difference, it wasn’t the complete answer to her pain. Motivated by her own journey and with a passion to help others, Daisy pursued a fitness certification. However, she soon realized that fitness alone couldn’t address the underlying issues.
She expanded her skills with a yoga certification, aiming for improved flexibility. Still, something was missing. It was only when Daisy studied fascial stretch therapy (FST) that she had an important realization: our skeletal, muscular, and fascial systems need to work in harmony. When out of sync, they can lead to pain, poor posture, reduced flexibility and other issues.
Her exploration didn’t stop with FST. By diving into the literature of physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, and other disciplines, Daisy began to see the bigger picture about fascia’s role. This extensive research and practical experience led her to develop Body Realignment Therapy (BRT). BRT focuses on realigning the skeletal, muscular and fascial systems in order to “reprogram” them to work in harmony. The benefits of BRT include pain reduction, better posture, and increased strength and flexibility.
While Daisy became increasingly confident she had figured out how to combine best practices from Fascial Stretch Therapy and other disciplines into an effective soft tissue treatment therapy (her BRT system), she was still looking for an effective exercise system to complement her practice.
Daisy had always admired Yoni’s commitment to travel all over North America and Europe to learn from the leading figures in the health and fitness world, and so she reached out to Yoni about joining 3 Seasons in order to learn his 3 Seasons methodology for strength training and fitness. The 3 Seasons approach of “Prepare, Perform, Recover” – the three seasons of your sport – resonated with Daisy, and she has taken to it with zeal. She has even helped Yoni and the rest of the team improve how they do certain exercises that relate to posture and longevity.
Daisy’s commitment to understanding and improving the human body to reduce pain remains her driving force. Today, she continues to refine BRT by studying fascia across various healing disciplines, always aiming to provide the most effective relief and support to her clients.
