You could try the following

Paragraph("<br/>",style=....), however, you should be aware that paragraphs come
with spaceBefore and spaceAfter style settings. If you just want vertical space
then you can use the Spacer flowable eg


uses up 72 points of vertical space. The 1 is effectively the width, but is not
really important.
