The Life Force Principle


We believe that you have the power to heal yourself. All you need is guidance. Within the relaxing setting of our island sanctuary, we’ve helped hundreds of patients down the path of self-healing with our unique methodology, the Life Force Principle. Developed by Dr. Siddick Maudarbocus after 35 years of medical practice and research in the field of western and alternative medicine, this revolutionary approach connects you to the vital energy which rejuvenates the mind, body, and spirit.

Designed for immediate results and practicality, the Life Force Principle condenses the philosophies of various healing systems into three main pillars essential to a healthy and empowered life:

  1. A positive mind, rid of stress and in control of emotions  
  2. A healthy body fuelled by the right foods and maintained with Physical Activity  
  3. An awareness of our interconnectedness with all things around us

All of what we do at Les Mariannes Wellness Sanctuary focuses on these three elements. Even when you leave the sanctuary, our tips and techniques ensure that your lifeforce stays at a level that guarantees good health and wellbeing.

What is life force

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” Carl Sagan, Astronomer, Scientist, Astrophysicist, Cosmologist, and Astrobiologist.

The theory that we are all made of cosmic dust is now widely accepted by the scientific community. But this knowledge is not new. Our intimate connection with the Universe and cosmic energy was preached by Eastern sages for millennia.

In India, the ancient Upanishads spoke of Prana. In China, sages and doctors spoke of Chi, and in Japan, the correct flow of Ki was considered essential to good health.

Though the geography and the words changed, they all reflect a link to the universe, the interconnectedness of all things, a “lifeforce” which flows within us all.

“The universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.” Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi, Sufi mystic.

At Les Mariannes Wellness Centre, we follow in the footsteps of these ancient sages and improve on their methodology using the power of 21st-century technology, and the knowledge of modern medicine to re-balance your life force and teach you ways to lead a better and healthier life.
