Learn a world-renowned approach to working with chronic illness that has achieved outstanding results.

Many health approaches focus solely on the physical symptoms of illness, but our mind body medicine course is built upon the important relationship between the mind and body, and how they simultaneously affect each other.

You will gain a cutting-edge understanding of the body psychology system that helps you uncover the lifestyle and psychological factors driving clients’ illnesses. Very often client problems stem from a common root. This mind body approach empowers you to drive positive change and guide your clients to connect with their inner self, realign their beliefs and overcome deep-seated behaviours.

If you are keen on helping people uncover the root drivers of pain or illness, from a physical and psychological perspective, and give them the tools to elicit positive change, then you will find this mind body course immensely empowering.

Testimonials from our students

“CCM has been an amazing college to study at, we are so lucky to have such inspiring and dedicated teachers. The courses they offer are unique and deeply rooted in holistic medicine. I am so grateful for the education and resources we have access to. I am part of the first online combined class and have been so impressed by the way we have been taught online, our teachers have adapted the content so well and supported us so much throughout this course. I started the course living overseas and moved back to my home in Western Australia during it, having access to online learning has meant I have the opportunity to study at CCM which I otherwise wouldn’t have. If you are thinking of studying with CCM, I highly recommend it!”

What’s in our 10990NAT Diploma of Mind Body Medicine course?

Our Diploma of Mind Body Medicine in Melbourne and Sydney covers all aspects of standard Mind Body Medicine training plus added depth in the following key areas:

Kinesiology & Structural Kinesiology

Start with an intro to kinesiology to help your client connect their mind and body. Then work on improving posture to reduce pain through hands-on practice. Being able to work effectively on a person’s physical body is essential to restoring their overall balance and addressing blockages throughout their body.

We cover balances for fascial trains, cranial, jaw, pelvis, neck, and the 7 primary movements.

Body Psychology

Discover a comprehensive system for unpacking the meaning of specific symptoms and their link to major psychological patterns, a person’s behaviour and their body. Graduates are then empowered to use a world-renowned approach to work with clients on a deep psychological or psycho spiritual level, enabling them to make the changes they need to be well.

Counselling & Practitioner Development

We believe that the interaction between client and therapist is crucial to the outcome. We teach client-centred counselling techniques and have a unique practitioner development program so that you become the best practitioner you can be.

Chinese Medicine Theory

A unique inclusion to our mind body course, we draw from the 2,500-year strong wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine. As an important part of the intellectual base for mind body medicine, here you will learn Chinese diagnostic methods, the 5 elements and Bagua constitutions, the deep flows of the meridians, points for improving many different conditions and unique methods for balancing meridians.

Facilitating Change

In a majority of cases, client problems stem from a common root. Through Mind Body Medicine, you can help people discover these root drivers and give them the motivation to change. You become a facilitator, helping them understand and recognize the deep-seated motivations behind the lifestyle patterns that are affecting their health and wellness.

This unit integrates a very powerful counselling approach of bodywork and acupressure for resolving these patterns.

Career Opportunities

This unique program qualifies you to be able to work in a richly rewarding career in a rapidly growing area of complementary medicine.

Graduates may choose to work independently or together with other medical practitioners in integrative clinics.

Mind Body Medicine complements other forms of medicine and has distinct advantages when tackling many of the chronic conditions that are so prevalent today.

You can play a leading role in helping people feel self-empowered in regards to their health and emotional wellbeing.

Frequently asked questions

There are numerous mind body medicine 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 mind body medicine 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 our mind body medicine courses explore 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 course, Mind Body Medicine course and Integrative Medicine courses are 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. It’s important to choose one from a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) At CCM we offer a number of natural therapy courses: Kinesiology, Mind Body Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Transpersonal Art Therapy and Counselling.

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.
