'Elysium' - A place or state of perfect happiness; paradise
Valerie opened Elysium in Moycullen in 2003 after gaining valuable experience working in salons and spas all over the world. The year after opening Elysium won a National IBPA Award and Valerie was voted as one of the Top Five Facial therapist's in Ireland. In 2006 the wheels were set in motion to expand the business from a 500 sq ft salon to a 2,500 sq. ft. state of the art luxurious Day Spa and Laser Clinic. The new Day Spa opened it's doors in November 2007 incorporating every day salon treatments, decadent spa rituals and advanced medical grade aesthetic treatments as well as a doctor's Botox and Filler clinic. The attention to detail, time and care taken in the design is very evident but as Valerie states would be nothing without the passion, care and level of service provided by herself and her highly qualified therapists. An exceptional team creating the professional, friendly and down to earth atmosphere that Elysium is known and loved for. Elysium has since gone on to win several national titles including: IBPA Irish Salon of the Year, Yon Ka Day Spa of the Year and The Irish Spa Awards to name but a few.
