Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine)


Chinese Medicine is a system of primary health care that works holistically to maintain or restore balance, harmony and order in our bodies. Chinese Medicine philosophy is based on the Yin/Yang principle of balancing and harmonising conditions within the body. The origins of Chinese Medicine go back thousands of years, and work with the philosophy that balanced and free-flowing Qi (energy) results in health, while stagnant or imbalanced Qi leads to disease.


Chinese Medicine is truly holistic in its approach and believes that the body, mind, spirit and emotions are all interlinked. It recommends that we as humans follow the universal laws of nature to achieve total harmony and health.


This four-year Chinese Medicine degree covers both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine and is approved by the National Australian accreditation body TEQSA (Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency) and by the CMBA (Chinese Medicine Board of Australia).

With this degree you will gain knowledge about the balance of Yin and Yang and how the disharmony of Qi can result in poor health.
