Frequently Asked Questions

There are numerous mind body education courses in health and wellness in Australia which could lead to a career as a mind body medicine practitioner. It's important to choose one from a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) At CCM we offer the 10990NAT Diploma of Mind Body Medicine, a government approved qualification. Once you complete your qualification you can apply for memberships with an industry association. Some industry associations give you access to discounted insurance, which is strongly recommended to have if you intend on setting up your own clinic.

Many health approaches focus solely on the physical symptoms of illness, but Mind Body Medicine explores the relationship between the mind and the body simultaneously. Very often client problems stem from a common root – by using Mind Body Medicine you can learn how to discover these root drivers and encourage positive change. This unique approach to natural health medicine recognises that health and wellness depends on balancing head and heart.

You can choose to study mind body medicine with us via our online combined study format or face-to-face study.

People that study medical research recognise that the most important determinants of whether a person will be healed are: the body’s innate healing potential, the person’s inclusion in the healing process, the degree of interaction with the practitioner, the belief in the therapy and in themselves, and finally the treatment itself. Interestingly the treatment effect is often much smaller than the other factors combined. The body’s own innate healing potential is often the key driver of healing. Natural therapy works by targeting this key driver of healing as well as utilising treatments that stimulate healing. Together this is a potent healing force, particularly when dealing with chronic illnesses that by their nature have developed slowly in response to long held lifestyle stressors. Eliminating or reducing these stressors and anything the client is doing that impedes their body’s healing mechanisms is a very effective approach to tackling healing.

Due to the effectiveness of natural therapy like sungazing, mind body education is a growing study field.

The length of study depends on the type of health and wellness course and the study format. At CCM we offer a variety of courses and delivery methods. Our Kinesiology, Mind Body Medicine, Integrative Medicine and Sports Kinesiology is delivered in our Sydney and Melbourne campus via face-to-face. We also offer online combined, a balance between face-to-face and online learning. Depending on which training the student chooses will determine the length of study. Our Mind Body training can take between 12 months to 2 years. We also offer other natural therapy courses, see our Transpersonal Therapy courses for more information.
There are numerous natural therapy courses in Australia.

Mind body medicine (MBM) focusses on the interaction between mind and body – a unique approach relative to other natural therapies courses. The illnesses people get are reflective of how they live their lives. To empower people with chronic illness MBM addresses the motivations behind their lifestyle. It uses both mind and body techniques to address their health concerns rather than focussing predominantly on the body as do other modalities such as in naturopathy and nutrition. MBM is one of the natural therapies courses we have on offer.

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.
Liesl Frank
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.
LEONA DAWSON
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.
CATH BROWN
The college really is at the cutting edge area of health. It’s quiet frankly an education that is second to none.
NICK MOSS
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.
