Frequently Asked Questions

Kinesiology is a modality that integrates many techniques from both western and easter 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 combines 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 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. Kinesiology 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 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 courses for over 21 to 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. Some people may be ready to jump into their diploma studies.

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

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