10687NAT Diploma of Sports Therapy Kinesiology
The Sports Therapy Kinesiologist addresses the client from an integrative perspective – recognising that the clients posture is a reflection of the client’s overall health and movement patterns. The client’s movement patterns reflect their neurology and psychology. Using Sports Therapy Kinesiology these factors are able to be assessed using kinesiology and addressed holistically.

Watch as Emma Sternberg, a CCM graduate and successful practicing Kinesiologist on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, discusses her course.
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.
