About The Maris Practice

Soul and body, I suggest react sympathetically upon each other: a change in the state of the soul produces a change in the shape of the body, and conversely a change in the shape of the body produces a change in the state of the soul.
Aristotle

We treat people of all ages for many conditions and problems. We receive referrals from GPs, health visitors, midwives, patients who self-refer and those on healthcare schemes with companies such as BUPA, AXA PPP, Cigna etc.

The Maris Practice was founded by Mary-Jane Anderton in 2001 with a philosophy to provide the best natural healthcare options for the community. Mary-Jane decided on its name as The Maris – which is Latin for 'of the ocean' or 'of the sea' because the term embraces the concept that we all come from one source – life originated in the vibrant pool of the Earth's oceans and thus ocean embodies a more profound meaning of home.

Our medical treatments are termed holistic (the whole), - meaning that they treat the individual, not the symptoms, and work with the patient to relieve their specific problems as well as to improve their overall wellbeing. This establishes a positive cycle of health wherein the person's constitution is strengthened and there is less likelihood of a recurrence of problems. Each practitioner takes a thorough case history so that they can acquire as much information as possible in order to make an informed diagnosis.

All of our practitioners have a common aim – to serve the health of the individual and the community.
