Course overview – Integrative  Complementary Medicine 

The 10708NAT Advanced Diploma of Integrative Complementary Medicine (ICM) provides comprehensive training focusing on the key areas of natural medicine integrated into one effective package. Our course addresses each aspect of the health of the individual – the mind through counselling; the physical body through massage, aromatherapy and Kinesiology; and the biochemistry through nutrition. Students learn to combine 8 major treatment modalities including:

  • Nutrition and Diet therapy
  • Massage and Body Work
  • Chinese Medicine Organ Theory and Acupressure Practice
  • Mind Body Medicine
  • Counselling
  • Kinesiology
  • Aromatherapy

Why study this course with CCM?

  • Receive comprehensive, specialist training to support your career and life goals.
  • Work in clinic and develop your career after just two years of study.
  • Flexible study options to suit your lifestyle.
  • Upon completion of our Advanced Diploma ICM course, you can also graduate with a 10594NAT Diploma of Mind Body Medicine by successfully completing one extra subject.
  • Access pathways into five different degrees at Endeavour College of Natural Health.
  • Graduates can become Complementary Medicine practitioners offering solutions that embrace both the physical body and the mind. Training in Naturopathy and Chinese Medicine have become quite specialised and focused on physical wellbeing, largely ignoring the driving force of the mind. Likewise, counselling approaches often ignore the body. Our ICM course combines all of these approaches.
  • Programs are taught by highly experienced lecturers who are passionate about teaching and their field of Complementary Health.
  • When you study with CCM you join a dedicated, focused and passionate community of career minded students that have a strong network which supports each other.
  • Our 10708NAT Advanced Diploma of Integrative Complementary Medicine is a nationally recognised and endorsed qualification.

The college really is at the cutting edge area of health. It’s quiet frankly an education that is second to none.


I started studying with CCM when I was already working as a Psychotherapist when I realised I needed more than simply ‘Talk Therapy’ to support my clients needs. In my prior training we had not really explored Expressive Therapies or the power role of the Transpersonal but CCM offered the perfect integration of both.


The Transpersonal Counselling Advanced Diploma course has changed my lifestyle, my relationships and my personal and professional goals in life. I now teach Yoga with a different and improved perspective and hold space for my students to incorporate yogic techniques while maintaining a connection to their heart and embracing their own unique rhythm.


When I decided to study Kinesiology, it was important to me that I had the best education possible. I did a lot of research and decided that the College of Complementary Medicine was the only option.


The incredible camaraderie and sense of community encouraged at CCM goes beyond the classroom to faculty management and administration. I haven’t experienced this sense of belonging at any other college and found that it made learning so much more enjoyable and valuable.
