Allison Trott

Aromatherapist Holistic Clinical Honours & Reiki Practitioner
Member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

Opening the Barbican Therapy Centre in September 2007, my vision was to create a home for therapists offering a complete range of restorative treatments that would be available to all.
I have been practicing as an Aromatherapist since 1995 undertaking formal training at the School of Complementary Health in Exeter. I continued my studies with a diploma in Nutrition and Sports Therapy and a Holistic Clinical Honours Diploma I.T.E.C. and Indian Head Massage at the School of London Champissage.
I studied Reiki part 1 and 2 in 2012 and Reiki 3, Practitioners/master course in June 2014. More recently in 2015, I have studied and qualified in Reflexology and Geo Thermal Therapy (hot and cold stone massage).
I successfully qualified in Constitutional and Cosmetic Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture in March 2018.

As my work seemed to be moving towards facilitating workshops I studied at Plymouth University to become an adult educator receiving a Certificate in Education. At the centre I hold recreational workshops in Aromatherapy, Indian Head Massage and Couples Massage Workshops.

I also work one to one with people with learning disabilities, both at the centre and in the community.

I am interested in research in complementary therapies and undertook a research module at Exeter University. Approved Massage Therapist Plymouth with Capes Health Professionals in Association with University of St Mark & St John.

Monika Makuszynska

Holistic Therapist
Member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

Since completing a Holistic and Complementary Therapies Diploma with a Certificate of Excellence in Brighton in 2015, I have worked with Purple Turtle Therapies, Perfect Pamper and Spa Tara, all of which are located in the City of Brighton. In addition to a VTCT Diploma in Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Swedish Massage, I have also acquired extensive knowledge about Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Natural Face Lift (Rejuvenation Massage) and Reiki. As I am also interested in Dementia Care and understand the great demand for Holistic Therapies in Care Home settings, I have completed “Massage for People with Dementia with Validation Therapy”, with Nicolle Mitchell – “Little Massage Clinic”. I am delighted to have worked in a number of care homes where I have provided Aromatherapy and Reflexology for their residents. Within my 4 years of experience as a Massage Therapist, I have completed a number of CPD courses which have maintained and improved my skills to a high practical and theoretical standard.

I believe that receiving holistic treatment is very empowering. I have always assured my clients that through a willingness to be treated and a trust in the methods I use, they will attain the results they desire - complete satisfaction and a more positive mental and emotional state.

I am so happy to have moved to historical Plymouth and I am absolutely thrilled to join the Barbicans' Therapies team of Practitioners.

Shaji Devadasan

Indian Head Massage therapist
Member of the International Institute for Complementary Therapists.

I am a qualified practitioner in Indian Head Massage therapy. I have been working as a registered nurse since 2000. My ambition is to practice natural medicine which I began studying two years ago.
This therapy is an integral part of the Ayurvedic healing system, which uses a variety of techniques to massage soft tissues. Indian Head Massage not only helps to achieve a state of calm, peace and tranqulity but also it can provide lots of positive health benefits to a person.
For me, it is a great privilege to work with Barbican Therapy Centre. I have Diploma in Indian Head Massage therapy and I am studying a Masters in Integrative Medicine (MIM) with the Quantum University, Honolulu, Hawaii to explore more in natural medicine.
