Introducing our Patient Therapy Fund – March 2021
Over the past 12 months, despite the financial challenges that the pandemic has brought, practitioners and staff at the Elysia Therapeutic Centre have been committed to keeping the Centre’s doors open.
We absolutely recognise that this is a time of great need, especially for the vulnerable. We are aware that some people who began or were hoping to begin treatments or therapy, have postponed them because they are in the vulnerable category or have financial challenges. In addition, the stretched NHS services cannot always offer the longer term psychological and psychospiritual support that people might need because of the effects of the coronavirus situation.
Thanks to funding received, we are very pleased to share that we have launched our Patient Therapy Fund in order to enable those in the local community of Dudley, whose lives have been mentally, emotionally, physically and financially affected by COVID-19, to access therapeutic help and support from the Elysia Centre.
The patient therapy fund aims to offer a 20-50% fee contribution towards the cost of therapy, depending on the financial situation and needs of the client. This fee assistance in the first instance will include pain care, rheumatology, physiotherapy, rhythmical massage and eurythmy therapy.

We are a complementary health clinic providing a broad range of therapeutic practice including:
- anthroposophic medicine
- physical therapy such as massage
- talking therapy such as counselling
- therapeutic art
- support groups
Our approach connects two ideas about the human being: first, that how we are feeling and our attitude to life can impact our health and well-being. Secondly, that our physical, emotional and spiritual health are interconnected and therapy on one of these levels can foster wellness on another.
It is an approach that assumes life is meaningful and that ill health and crisis, whilst challenging and sometimes profoundly difficult, is also an opportunity to review, take-stock, reflect, rest, and perhaps bring about positive change and transformation in your life.
We can offer help for a wide range of issues including:
- Depression and anxiety
- Life crisis and relationship difficulties
- Cancer Care & Mistletoe Therapy
- Joint or back pain, injury, pain management, fibromyalgia
- Skin conditions, migraines, headaches
- Sleep disturbance
- Respiratory and circulatory conditions
- Digestive problems
- Complex chronic issues
About our Practice of Care
We divide our different therapies into four categories. These are arranged holistically, by the part of our ‘being’ that is directly addressed by the therapeutic practice. In the Physical and Movement Therapies the healing process is activated by working with the physical body of the patient, either through touch, nutrition or movement. In the Talking Therapies the practitioner engages in conversations that activate healing through the consciousness (or spirit) of the patient. In the Artistic Therapies the healing process is activated through the patient’s sensing soul activities, brought about by engaging with colour, sound or movement. The Anthroposophical Medicine category concerns the anthroposophical medical doctor who prescribes physical medicines.
