Acupressure is the healing art of the ancient Taoist sages and is one of the most powerful modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine. By using the fingers alone, acupressure opens up the healing power of the body’s vital energy (Qi). In this course you will learn more than just the major pressure points. You will learn the essential theory and practice of approaching the body in terms of its crucial bio-energetic vitalities. Through an emphasis on the ancient Five Element system, you will learn how each of the body’s organ-systems is part of an integral whole which relates deeply not only to our physiology, but to the subtle rhythms of our inner and outer lives.

Health and Harmony Practitioner Courses offer qualifications that enable you to practice within your education’s scope, such as Art Therapy and Holistic Counselling.

On completion of your course, you can establish your own practice or work in various settings, but please note that these courses may not be recognised as prior learning at universities.

Any potential employer may also have a specific set of education requirements for an advertised job.

The natural therapies field in Australia is largely self-regulated, and obtaining equivalent study is key for joining associations and gaining insurance for practice.

Health and Harmony Colleges are approved by Holistic Health Associates International and the International Institute for Complementary Therapists, so it’s crucial for students to check which association recognises their course before enrolling.

You will need internet, and access to a computer/laptop or tablet to complete your study via our Student Portal however lessons and assessment content can be accessed offline if you plan to travel, or are out of internet range intermittently.
