Justin began studying tai chi and qigong with his father at the age of ten. From that early experience he developed a life-long love and fascination with Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, meditation, and medical qigong. He studied TCM at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, completing his Master of Science in 2008. After graduating he opened his private practice, Stonegate Wellness and has also worked as the associate dean and director of clinical studies for medical qigong at the Healing Tao Institute, and as the head of acupuncture at Austin Integrative Medicine. His focus has always been on the integration of medical and health practices, whether that is bridging between different medical professions or helping patients to develop mindful and wellness oriented life-styles through treatment, meditation, and patient education. Teaching is one of his great passions and he enjoys sharing his knowledge with learners of all levels.
