ON ZON SU COURSE

Course's duration: 4 weeks

Language of the course: english

Main teacher: d. Romoli Maurizio who began to practice On Zon Su in 1980 under the guidance of master Ming Wong Chung Ying

     Foot massage is a well known practice all around the world. But what managed to spread out, is a kind a foot reflexology, as if there were a kind of switches in the foot: once manipulated or stimulated in some way, something is supposed to happen in a remote area of the body. This is true but is not all.


     The reality is much wider and deeper.

     This tecnique began thousands of years ago in the taoist world as a real form of medicine, able to influence the body but also the soul of whom is being treated and of whom is treating. It's name was On Zon Su.
     It is a wonderfull, complete and simple way of redistribution of the energy that runs in the meridians (tching) of the body.

N.B. Every lesson concerning a specific system, will start with an introduction to its anatomy, its physiology and its main disorders.

Our course is about On Zon Su, in other words about taoist foot massage.

The course is divided in 2 sections:

  • the theoretical part, with very little practice on oneselves, organized in 16 web lessons. 
  • the practical part, during a special weekend.

As you can see, our orizon is much larger than simply teaching foot reflexology.

That is the reason why we will have a lesson in which we will introduce to the students the 14 main meridians.
Furthermore, another lesson will explain the basis of the theory of the 5 elements, one of the foundations of Tao.
Another lesson will explain the general principles of taoist diet, so that our students will be able to suggest the patient on such a delicate but essential matter.

Then we will get to the core of the taoist foot massage:

  • First we will discuss the tools and the different positions that can be used in the practice.
  • Second we will explain the 4 levels of depth of this system.

In On Zon Su is very important the interactive relationship between the patient and the healer.

  • This kind of relationship will help the patient to become aware of his/her body and of the level of sensitivity of it. On the other hand, it will allow the operator to fell much better the patient' s difficulties and so the effect of the therapy will be maximized.
  • Then we will discuss in detail the map that we use, one that comes from the first taoist monks. With it, we will try the first guided practical exercises: every student will be guided to treat her/his own feet.

We also will explain the 3 different stages of our ancient tecnique. 

  • All this will be taught and explained in detail in our web lessons.
  • Then we will organize a week end in a beautiful place in the nature, from friday evening to sunday afternoon. Here the students will practice the tecnique between themselves, under our teachers' supervision. And they will treat the teachers and will be treated by them as well.

This will help the students to feel in their feet what is like to recieve this kind of treatment, and also to percieve what really is to give it. And all this, under the guidance of our teachers.

After these 2 days of lessons, there will be a written test. Those who will pass this test, will take the practical test: a foot massage to the one of the teachers.

  • If a student passes both tests, he/she will receive a certificate of professional training, recognized all around the world by The Taoist Accademy, according to the Italian law n. 4 of 14/january/2013.

The price of the web course ( 16 lessons of 1 hour each ) is euro 200.00 and must be paid to the school before the beginning of the course. After the payment, the student will receive the password to access the web lessons. 


The price of the practical course ( 12 hours of lessons) is euro 200.00, tests and certificate included. For accomodation and food, there are another 200.00 euro, for a total of 400.00 euro that must be paid to the school up to 5 days before the beginning of the weekend-course, so that it will be possible to book the 3 star hotel.
If needed, a shuttle from train-station or from airport, can be arranged.
