Restoring the balance in your life

Welcome to Clara Rose Therapies in Wantage; Reflexology and Complementary Therapies for Health and Relaxation

Welcome to Clara Rose Therapies

Hello, my name is Rosie Pickerill.

I am a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist and a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) and the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

I’ve always been interested in holistic therapies and well-being and have been lucky enough to have the chance to retrain in a job I love. After using reflexology successfully to treat myself and my children I knew it was the path I wanted to follow.


A deeply calming and relaxing therapy that works the whole body through the hands, face or feet. Specific pressure techniques are used to work the nerve endings and acupressure points to de-stress and balance the body, leaving you with an improved sense of emotional and physical wellbeing. Choose from six different reflexology options; hypnotic Facial, gentle Crystals, warming Hot Stones, Lymph Drainage for inflammatory conditions, classical Hand and Foot or try a blended Reflexology treatment.

Indian Head Massage

Calm and unwind as soothing massage techniques are applied to the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp and face to relieve stress and tension throughout the whole body. Facial pressure points (marma points) are also used to stimulate energy flow in the body to further enhance the treatment. Indian Head Massage is effective for reducing emotional stress and tension, improving poor sleep patterns and helping with the symptoms of sinusitis, tinnitus & headaches. 


A gentle yet powerful hands on therapy harnessing the universal life force or energy that is all around us. Creating a deep sense of relaxation, Reiki restores balance and harmony to the mind, body and emotions. Reiki can help alleviate the symptoms of any stress-related condition and is particularly effective in reducing emotional stress and tension. Its energy balancing effects can improve poor sleep patterns, boost mood and increase your overall well-being.

Meridian Massage

A rhythmic and harmonising massage of the forearms or lower legs allowing you to relax and tune in to your own body. Adapted Tui Na meridian massage techniques are used to gently open and clear the meridian pathways and stimulate acupressure points to improve and regulate the flow of energy through the whole body. Deeply relaxing and supportive, Meridian Massage will help to relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, improve sleep and gently bring balance to your mind, body and spirit.

My Approach

Giving yourself permission to take time out to look after yourself is an important step in your wellness journey. As a Reflexologist, Reiki Master and Indian Head Massage therapist I can tailor each of my treatments specifically to your needs with a combination of therapies. Working gently and intuitively, I can give you the valuable time and space you need to relax and unwind in my tranquil and comforting treatment room. Personalised after care advice is offered to help you take control of your own well-being.

Crystal Healing

A gentle, nurturing therapy particularly useful for balancing the body’s energy systems both physically and emotionally, providing a pure inner calm. Based on the ancient method of crystal healing, intuitively chosen crystals are laid on or around the body on points indicated by a pendulum to help balance and align the seven major Chakras, or energy hot-spots, meridians and any other conditions specific to you. Crystal healing can bring about a deep sense of stillness and an increased sense of well-being.

Benefits of Complementary Therapies

Complementary Therapies treat you holistically as a person to increase your overall well-being. Most people find they gain a deep sense of relaxation during the treatment, allowing the body to activate its own healing processes.

Treatments can aid in the release of stress and tension, regulate sleep patterns and improve mood leading to an increased sense of well-being both physically, mentally and emotionally.

Some Frequently Asked Questions...

How often should I have a treatment?

This will be different for each person and the symptoms being addressed. Some people like to book a block of six treatments to quickly get on top of their symptoms and then gradually space out their sessions, whereas others prefer to take it more slowly with monthly treatments. The right answer is what feels right for you.

What should I expect in a treatment?

All treatments are tailored to your specific needs and take place on my luxurious reclining treatment bed. You will remain fully clothed except for the area being worked on. You will be wrapped in warm blankets and soft towels before being treated with your choice of organic, vegan facial oils and foot wax while you listen to soothing music, relax and drift away.

What treatment should I choose?

All my treatments are holistic; treating the whole of the body and mind. Foot reflexology is a good starting point if you are not sure what to choose. If you have a tight neck and shoulders you may want to try Indian Head massage or if you are looking for some inner calm Reiki or Crystal healing may be right for you. Please contact me to discuss if you are unsure.
