Juniper Medicine Alchemical Acupuncture

A Sacred Space for Transformational Healing

Whidbey Island




Times from Monique Gaboury L.Ac. on Vimeo



As a seasoned practitioner I have witnessed the ways in which the call to heal often has roots that reach beyond the removal of symptoms toward an inherent longing to come fully alive, to live a life of depth and soul, to discover purpose and meaning in connection to the greater whole. Pain and suffering opens us to the sacred, inviting us to come home to our authenticity, to community, to the gifts that are only ours to share.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is the foundation from which my work continuously evolves. Each session is approached intuitively and creatively, drawing upon many traditions. My patients appreciate the the benefits they have received from the heart-centered depth of presence, dedication and diverse approach with which I tend the healing journey. I have extensive experience with treating psycho-spiritual issues, complex conditions, anxiety, depression, chronic illness, digestive issues, hormonal issues, chronic and acute pain, immune disorders, and fatigue.

There is a place within each of us untouched by life’s traumas. Alchemical Acupuncture offers a way to more easily access this place of unbroken wholeness. By nourishing one’s fullest potential, we expand into the depth and breadth of the human experience as nested within the larger story of existence. In this way we create the conditions for our deepest challenges to become the very medicine for healing itself—from the individual to the whole-earth community and beyond.

I hold a masters level diploma in acupuncture from Middle Way Acupuncture Institute, certification from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine as a Diplomate of Acupuncture and licensing by the state of Washington as an Acupuncturist and East Asian Medicine Practitioner. Since 2019 I have studied Alchemical Acupuncture and its Inner Traditions extensively with Lorie Eve Dechar.

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of the earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea
Quick now, here, now, always—
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire

And the fire and the rose are one”

T.S. Eliot, ‘Four Quartets’
