Proudly celebrating 10 years!
On 21 February 2012, the doors of the Centre opened and the first therapeutic session took place!
Ten years on, after many phases of growth and development, including the challenges of the past two years, we have a practitioner community continuing to offer an expert service held by the Centre’s warm containing space.
Bring your family along and join us on 25 June 2022 at our birthday celebration
We are a unique, integrated health care clinic providing a broad range of therapeutic practice including:
- anthroposophic medicine: GP, rheumatology & mistletoe support
- physical therapy such as therapeutic massage
- talking therapy such as counselling
- mindful movement therapy such as eurythmy
- therapeutic art and 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:
- Stress and anxiety
- Relationship coaching
- Trauma and PTSD
- Mistletoe treatment for cancer care
- Joint or back pain, injury, pain management, fibromyalgia
- Digestive problems, migraines and sleep disturbance
- Respiratory and circulatory conditions
- Holistic wellbeing treatments, relaxation and self-care
Patient Therapy Fund
Thanks to funding we have received from Hermes Trust and the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain, we have a Patient Therapy Fund in order to enable those in the local community of Dudley to access therapeutic help and support from the Elysia Centre.
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.
