I was born and raised in Kent and started my career in nursing homes for the elderly. I moved on to work in IT admin management and training before having my children and settling down in Wantage.
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.
After completing my Level 3 Reflexology Diploma at the excellent Eileen Gilmour School of Holistics in Gloucester I set up my own therapy practise.
So what's in the name? Clara was my Gran’s aunty, born in 1900, a beautiful, witty and intelligent lady who I was very fond of. And Rose, for the beautiful flower and partly from my full name, Rosemary, although only my Gran and my Mum ever called me Rosemary!
I live my life with mindfulness, enjoying things as they are at each moment in time and make the most of every day. I use meditation every day, enjoy playing Euphonium in Wantage Academy Silver Band and can often be found pottering around on the allotment.
Our busy lives and the general stresses that come with that can often take a toll on our health without us even realising. There are many benefits to Reflexology, Reiki, Indian Head and Meridian Massage and I tailor each of my treatments specifically to your needs, working gently and intuitively, giving you the valuable time and space you need to relax and unwind in my tranquil and comforting treatment room.
I have a special interest in stress and anxiety, hormone balancing, sleep and migraines and continue to build on my initial training including Reflexology Lymph Drainage with the award winning Sally Kay, Advanced Facial Reflexology with pioneer Ziggie Bergman and Advanced 5 Element Reflexology with Heidi Armstrong.
I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists and The Federation of Holistic Therapists, am bound by their Code of Practice and Ethics, conform to the AoR Eco Friendly Therapist Guidelines and am fully insured to practise. As part of my continued professional development I keep up to date with changes in the reflexology world, researching information and attending additional training courses to enhance my skills.
