Welcome to Alternate Therapeutics, my name is Alyse Di Pasquale and I am qualified Beauty, Laser and Paramedical Skin Therapist.
In 2006, I graduated from the Australasian College of Natural Therapies(ACNT), Surry Hills Sydney, where I graduated with an advanced diploma in Beauty and Spa. From ACNT, I also graduated with an International CIDESCO Diploma, recognising my beauty training throughout Australasia and Europe. I also hold a Paramedical Certificate, which allows me to work under various cosmetic and plastic surgeries for pre and post-operative skin care. I also hold a government accredited laser licence, enabling me to use lasers safely for cosmetic purposes.
From a very young age, I have always had a very kind and caring nature towards people and always enjoyed making people feel good about themselves in a genuine way.
My passion, experience and knowledge, has been very helpful to many people over the years, where I was able to treat and recommend appropriate treatments to clients.
I am a very passionate and keen freelance makeup artist, who enjoys the fun and glamour of the makeup artistry world. I absolutely love working with clients to make them look and feel their best, for any special occasion.
Over the 10 years of working in the Beauty and Skin Rejuvenation industry, my passion has still not diminished and continues to grow. My main objective is to utilise all of my passion and knowledge to the best of my ability, providing all of my clients with wonderful treatment options, with outstanding results.Book Now
Welcome to Alternate Therapeutics, my name is Carlo Niceforo. As a summary, I had the opportunity to hold various degrees in different fields. I worked and strived in all, which made my life vastly conversant. As I continued on my future path, I grew an immense passion and respect for the field of Chinese Medicine, where I developed a strong knowledge and appreciation for this ancient art and its fundamental role it plays in today’s health industry.
My tertiary studies commenced at James Cook University, where I was accepted in the field of Engineering in Townsville Queensland. I graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering Technology (1998) and a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) in 2001.
I was fortunate enough to have procured a position with a reputable consulting engineering firm (internationally), in NSW in 2001. I worked in their structural assets department, where a gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of engineering.
By the beginning of 2003, I followed my heart into the field of Chinese Medicine and graduated in 2007, with a Bachelor of Applied Science (TCM) from the University of Western Sydney, New South Wales.
I also obtained a Diploma of Reflexology from the Australasian College of Natural Therapies (ACNT) Surry Hills Sydney, and a Diploma of Tuina massage from the Sydney Institute of Chinese Medicine. I joined the Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association in 2007 and the Chinese Medical Board of Australia in 2013.
Chinese Medicine is an extraordinary challenge with remarkable satisfactions. It’s history descended through intermediate family generations, containing many hidden treasures for discovery. My aim is to maximise this medicine to the best of my ability, enabling superior therapeutic efficacy to all my patients.Book Now
In 2007 I completed my Bachelor of Nursing Science at James Cook University in Cairns and moved south to complete the Graduate Nurse Program at Hunter New England Health in New South Wales, shortly after. While I found my work as a registered nurse in surgical, orthopaedic, medical and high dependency units thoroughly rewarding, it was Cosmetic Nursing that truly combined my passion and interest in beauty, care, health and science, and knew this was the area of medicine I would ultimately pursue.
Before making the change, I spent 2 years working at the Mater Private Hospital in Townsville where my interest in perioperative nursing were piqued. This led me to gaining further qualifications with special interests in anaesthetics and recovery. This decision held me in good stead for my role as a cosmetic nurse injector. Before long, I completed my post graduate studies in Cosmetic Nursing and Dermal Therapies, which allow me to specialise in performing advanced skin treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, hydrabrasion, skin needling and light based treatments.
As a cosmetic nurse injector, I am passionate about working with my patients to help them feel beautiful in their own skin. Through my career progression, I have learnt the absolute importance on continued education and professional development and keep abreast of changes, trends and advancements in the industry through ongoing education. I also love to share this understanding with my patients to support treatment recommendations.
I believe everyone has their own reasons for seeking aesthetic cosmetic treatments and should be free to embrace their own beauty. The golden rule is that any cosmetic treatment should be done to please yourself and nobody else.Book Now
