About our Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapist

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 (Traditional Chinese Medicine) 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.
