The Maris Practice LogoThe Maris Practice is based in Twickenham and specialises in natural health and wellbeing using many complementary therapies for a variety of conditions. Their range of treatments is truly extensive, and includes acupuncture, the Alexander Technique, aromatherapy, breastfeeding support, herbalism, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, nutritional therapy, osteopathy (including cranial and paediatric osteopathy), pregnancy care & massage, psychotherapy, and shiatsi massage. They also have specialist clinics and services, including a Mum & Baby Health Drop-In.

There’s a lot of useful information on The Maris Practice’s website about all of their treatments, so we’ve just highlighted here a few of the things that may be of interest.

  • Breastfeeding Support: Lactation consultants who have many years’ experience with the National Childbirth Trust and NHS offer friendly one-to-one support for breastfeeding, both antenatally and postnatally.
  • The Maris Practice baby osteopathyCranial and Paediatric Osteopathy: Releasing restrictions in the cranium restores the flow of fluids and nerves within the brain, which can help problems such as colic, headaches, digestion, glue ear and sinus problems. Every week, The Maris Practice also offers a number of free baby appointments for babies up to one-year old, which include an examination and gentle cranial osteopathic treatment. The treatment is free but parents are invited to make a donation to ‘Me, Too and Co’ (a local charity providing support for children with special needs and their families).
  • The Maris Practice mum & babiesMum and Baby Drop-In: With specialist advice on sleeping, feeding, colic and other needs for your baby, this informal drop-in on Monday mornings allows you to get useful advice and support from breastfeeding consultants, cranial osteopaths, nutritional therapists, and homeopaths over a broad range of issues.
  • The Maris Practice massagePregnancy CareBack pain, indigestion, headaches, pubic symphysis dysfunction, pelvic girdle pain and rib pain are just some of the symptoms that pregnant women frequently have to put up with. Osteopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists, and massage therapists can all help achieve a healthy, happy pregnancy with their non-invasive, gentle, baby-friendly approach.

  • Hi

    I am a specialist Women’s Health physiotherapist. I work privately and also at New Victoria Hospital in Kingston. I was wondering if the mums at the drop in on a Monday morning might benefit from some advice? How would I contact to find out if I can come along?

    • Hi Catherine, you would need to contact The Maris Practice directly about that. Their number is 020 8891 3400.
      All the best.
