Elysium School of Complementary Therapy –
Discover a world of new possibilities…

Complementary therapies aim to enhance wellbeing, state of mind and truly relax you inside and out. Yet, for many of us we still don’t fully understand how they work, who they can apply to and what the real benefits are.

Meaning ‘a state, or place of perfect bliss’, “Elysium” offers those seeking to enhance their own knowledge, superb courses and workshops that aim to give you a real in-depth understanding of therapies and techniques. From LaStone Massage Therapy to a Crystal Healing professional Diploma, Patricia runs courses aiming to teach and encourage students, with tuition that is of a high standard, developed through her own experiences and qualifications.

Patricia herself is a qualified Therapist and Reiki Master, specialising in LaStone hot stone massage, Crystal Therapy and Reiki Healing, although she is qualified in a number of other therapies, such as Holistic and Facial Massage (using ‘Jurlique’ products), Reiki Drumming, Reflexology and The Metamorphic Technique. Starting out back in 1993, attending a course for Aromatherapy Massage, Patricia’s interest blossomed and over the years she continued to develop her skills and gain qualifications, including the completion of Teacher Training, that have eventually brought her to run her own school of complementary therapies.

LaStone Therapy "The original hot and cold massage". The benefits of having a LaStone Treatment in the winter months! The therapeutic potential of a stone therapy treatment makes it an ideal treatment to schedule into the winter months. Warm stones cocoon the client and can be placed underneath, around and on top of the body during a treatment as well as being used in a massage to deliver temperature. The use of temperature within a treatment helps to melt muscular tension and restore balance on a physical level. The use of varying temperatures helps to strengthen the immune system, flushing toxins and inflammation as well promoting a natural healing response within the body. The temperature, in combination with the massage, strengthens the circulatory systems which can become sluggish in the winter months - this also aids muscle tone, appearance of skin and helps reduce cellulite

Crystal Healing Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive therapy dating back thousands of years, using crystals that are laid on and around the client’s body, and is a powerful and effective way to improve the body’s own natural energy flow (Chi).

This Facial Massage can be used as a unique individual treatment, or incorporated within a body massage to offer a completely new holistic experience for the client.

Reiki is a gentle hands-on healing treatment that works with the client’s own energy to detoxify, heal and re-balance. “Successfully used on her husband to alleviate pain after a road traffic accident, thereby reducing the reliance on prescribed medication”.

The Metamorphic Technique is a simple approach to self-healing and personal development. The Metamorphic Practitioner uses a light touch on points known as the spinal reflexes, in the feet, hands and head.


Reflexology  is a safe, natural therapy used by an increasing number of individuals as a way of releasing tension, which lies at the heart of many of today’s health concerns.
It is a simple technique that can be applied at any time and is suitable for all groups; being extremely effective in treating a wide range of conditions, particularly those caused by the hectic and stressful lifestyles of today.

Our feet mirror our bodies, with every part of the foot corresponding to an organ or part of the body. There are over 7,000 nerve endings in the feet and by stimulating reflexes on the feet with a type of pressure massage, the organs of the body are stimulated, thus allowing them to start unblocking and healing themselves. This type of drugless therapy creates a physiological change in the body by naturally improving the circulation, which reduces body tensions and enhances relaxation. It aids in the elimination of the body waste, restoring the body functions to improved health

Thermo-Auricular Therapy (Hopi Ear Candles).  Hopi Ear Candling originated from the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. A candle, made from 100% natural ingredients such as cotton, bees wax, honey extract and Indian herbs such as Sage, Hypericum and Camomile, is gently placed in the ear. Whilst the candle is burning the pleasant heat sensation helps to stimulate the peripheral blood and lymph glands circulation. It also stimulates energy points and reflex zones.

Treat yourself to deep relaxation, which is very calming for all stress symptoms, with a traditional ear-candling session. It is soothing and helpful for earache, headaches or migraines, sinusitis and rhinitis. It is also safe and beneficial for even children.

Lava Shells
Lava Shells are the world’s first naturally self-heating massage tool, designed to allow a massage therapist to add heat into their massage techniques. No electricity or equipment is needed, as they generate their own heat for up to one hour. They are eco-friendly from start to finish. The naturally polished sea shells glide smoothly over the body and are used to ease muscle tension, unlock energy flow and release a sense of balance to the entire body and mind, thereby promoting extreme relaxation. For the ultimate calming massage, the ‘Lava Shells Relax’ treatment is the supreme solution.

Glacial Shells Detox Massage
This massage is the ultimate development in ice therapy (cryotherapy) that targets two problem areas; the stomach and the legs, tackling congestion areas and stimulating the lymphatic system to encourage the body’s own natural purification. This invigorating treatment eliminates toxins, whilst the therapeutic contrast of hot Lava Shells and cold Glacial Shells creates the ultimate contrast, promoting wellness and balance.
