Students will graduate with an understanding of the philosophy and history of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as practical Chinese remedial massage techniques and skills.
Students can look forward to developing a knowledge of human biology, systems physiology, pathophysiology, and pharmacology in addition to Chinese Medicine theories and therapies. This course also prepares students with consultation and diagnostic techniques and Chinese remedial massage techniques including Tui Na, acupressure, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, topical herbal applications, and medical Qi Gong.
This course has been carefully curated to optimise the student experience and learning outcomes. In response to student feedback and the evolving needs of the Chinese medicine profession in Australia, each teaching block instills students with both theoretical and practical skills. This means students will be continuously practicing and perfecting techniques as they learn them.
"My Endeavour cohort is like a family. We spend a lot of time together, studying and supporting each other. The teachers are supportive too. They listen and help as much as possible."
Chinese remedial massage practitioners can practice independently as a sole trader or alongside other practitioners in a multidisciplinary setting. Practitioners will often work with other allied health practitioners such as acupuncturists, Chinese herbalists, medical doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, and naturopaths. There is a wide scope for specialisation in areas including sports medicine, musculoskeletal health and health maintenance.
Graduates are eligible to pathway directly into the second year of the Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture Therapies) or Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine). Graduates may also pathway into other health qualifications in a variety of related areas.
