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 Osteopath 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. With synergy in philosophies towards healthcare and the community, after being a therapist and practice manager at The Maris Practice, in 2012 Claire Mac Donald bought the practice. She continues to offer Osteopathic treatments here alongside her management responsibilities.

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 well-being. 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.

Your health and well-being is our motivation. All our practitioners and staff have a common aim – to serve the health of the individual and the community. We have won awards over the last few years for Best Customer Service and Best Professional Practice.
