Dr. Siddick Maudarbocus
Dr Siddick Maudarbocus, founder and director at Les Mariannes Wellness Sanctuary trained as a doctor in Dublin and has since worked in a variety of psychiatry positions in London.
But it was during his time at the Alcohol Addiction unit in St. Bernard’s Hospital in Ealing when he discovered the healing powers of acupuncture in treating addictions. Dr Siddick was fascinated with the positive effects that acupuncture had on those suffering from addiction. So deep was this fascination that he decided to pursue further postgraduate studies in acupuncture, TCM and bio-energy medicine. These studies led Dr Siddick to work in various countries including France, Germany, India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and China.
Dr Siddick can only be described as the “chef d’orchestre” as he works meticulously to ensure each of his clients’ treatments is well-tuned and in harmony with their specific health profiles and needs. He supervises all treatment programs at the clinic and consistently delivers educational training to staff. Dr Siddick is also affiliated with a global network of psychiatrists and doctors who refer their clients to his center regularly.
