Studying Kinesiology

Studying Kinesiology
One of the goals of great health and wellbeing is to find a sense of balance. When we feel sick or just not on top of things, it can feel as if we are out of balance.

The aim of kinesiology is to regain that sense of balance – physically, emotionally and spiritually, by tapping into the body’s own wisdom.

A kinesiologist uses a combination of muscle testing and the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to assess the body’s levels of energy and identify factors that may be blocking the body’s natural healing processes. These factors can include stress, sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies and specific emotional issues.

Kinesiology may help to:
  • Relieve pain.
  • Identify allergies.
  • Relieve muscular and nervous disorders.
  • Assist in learning difficulties.

It taps into the true potential within us to find that all-important sense of balance and wellbeing.

What are the Options for Studying Kinesiology?

You could choose to do a short course in kinesiology as a taster, or look at a nationally accredited Certificate IV or diploma course.

You will study anatomy and physiology and learn the relationships between the muscles, meridians and organs. You will also be required to complete practical experience and also gain skills in communication, business management and first aid.

Depending on how deeply you want to go into the field, there could be options for using the credits acquired during your study to go on to do a degree course in a related field. Check with the education provider for these options.

Skills Needed in Kinesiology

Most courses will not require prerequisites, but it’s always best to check with the provider. To work in the field of kinesiology you will need good communication skills, as the day-to-day work requires extensive consultation and treatment of patients. Empathy and a desire to help others are also important traits.

Careers in Kinesiology

Kinesiology’s unique blend of eastern traditional forms of healing and western understanding of anatomy and physiology make it a fascinating field of study – one that will help you to help others find their sense of balance. Of course with any course of study, especially in the natural therapies field, you will also learn a lot about yourself.

After completing your studies in kinesiology, practitioners may find work in hospitals, rehabilitation centres, health services, or even aged care facilities, and of course private practice.
