Testimonials from our students

“I had a genuinely wonderful experience studying at the College of Complementary Medicine. The vast information that you learn really allows you a wide range of ways you can practice Kinesiology and Mind Body Medicine make it your own. Hands down the best education I have received and so appreciative of my time there. Thanks CCM for putting me on the path for the most rewarding dream career I could imagine.”

Kristyn Wagner

Diploma of Kinesiology, Diploma of Mind Body Medicine and Adv. Dip of Integrative Medicine Graduate

“Whilst I was serendipitously introduced to kinesiology, it was not until I attended CCM’s information session that I felt the clarity and confidence to pursue this path. I was particularly drawn to the strong emphasis of ancient modalities such as Traditional Chinese Medicine in the course curriculum. Having trained and worked in area of science and technology, it was the perfect introduction into limitless world and potential of energy medicine. The most fulfilling part of this work is that you learn and expand just as much as you assist your clients in their own journeys of growth and expansion”

You’ll understand the deep flows of the meridians, the points to improving many different conditions and unique methods for balancing meridians.

Combining insights from Western neuroscience and Chinese Medicine, you’ll acquire the tools to help people with neurological problems related to balance, walking gait, autism, poor coordination, reading and writing difficulties, speech impediments, and difficulties with learning and memory.

Frequently asked questions

Kinesiology is a modality that integrates many techniques from both western and eastern approaches. A Kinesiologist uses muscle monitoring, a tool that allows the practitioner to get an insight about how the brain relays information to the body.

A very simple explanation is, under stress the brain’s ability to send and receive messages from the body is reduced. This is what practitioners look for when they do muscle monitoring. Muscle monitoring is a process where the practitioner applies gentle pressure against a muscle (an arm or a leg) in order to get feedback from the brain. In our kinesiology courses we teach traditional Kinesiology techniques combined with the key areas of complementary health.

In Australia, the most common way of becoming a kinesiologist is to study through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). It is important that the training is delivered by an RTO as this assures quality training and delivery. As an RTO with over 20 years of experience, we deliver kinesiology courses in Melbourne and Sydney, and with our unique delivery method, you can study kinesiology from anywhere in Australia.

Kinesiology has many benefits and is all about the client learning about themselves and the stress factors that are getting in the way of them enjoying a better life. Kinesiology is used for physical, emotional, biochemical, and energetic imbalances. People may see a kinesiologist as they want to understand more about themselves and what prevents them from recovering or dissolving stress.

Some of the most common uses of kinesiology would be helping clients with issues around sleep, digestion issues, low energy, and pain problems. However, kinesiologists also work with relationship problems, learning issues, and calming and connecting to self.

In some countries, the definition of Kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of body movements. However, in Australia and in our kinesiology course, kinesiology is more than that. Kinesiology is a modality where the practitioner identifies stresses in the client’s body. These can be physical, emotional, energetic, and biochemical. A kinesiology practitioner uses a variety of tools and techniques to help clients address and resolve these issues.

In Sydney, you can study kinesiology through our College (College of Complementary Medicine CCM). At our Sydney campus, we offer Kinesiology face-to-face study and online combined. Our unique online combined study method means we can offer our kinesiology courses throughout Australia. Our kinesiology courses in Sydney are delivered from our Surry Hills campus, which is a short walk from Central Station.

At CCM we offer a variety of delivery methods. This includes face-to-face delivery at our Sydney and Melbourne campuses. We also offer online combined, a balance between face-to-face and online learning. Depending on which kinesiology training the student chooses will determine the length of study. Our kinesiology courses and training can take between 12 months and 2 years.

The best way to learn kinesiology is through a college or institute that has a long history of delivering quality kinesiology courses. Ideally, it is good to have a variety of teachers, as each trainer can bring their own unique clinical experience into the classroom.

At CCM we have been delivering complementary medicine courses for over 100 years of combined teaching experience. Some students prefer face-to-face study while others like our combination of online and face-to-face learning. We offer both delivery methods to suit individual learning styles. So you can  jump into your diploma of kinesiology course studies right away!

At CCM we offer short courses, which means you can dip your toe in and get a taste for kinesiology courses online from anywhere in Australia.
