Justin is a brilliant healer and a wonderful human being. I personally am not fond of traditional medicine and doctors who are too busy for their patients. Justin takes the time to listen and it is clear that he takes the whole person into account as he decides how to work with the issue at hand. He is an INCREDIBLE artist with the acupuncture treatments--this is a healer who listens and who uses his considerable wisdom to genuinely hear and and address his patients' concerns. When I have treatments with Justin, I leave feeling better AND I have things to think about and learn from due to the process. Justin is an absolute gem, and I cannot praise his skill, sensitivity, and talents enough--he's truly wonderful.Jul 11, 2011
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Initial visits are typically $100 and follow-ups are $75, however for Thumbtack leads I wave the initial consultation fee, so the first visit is $75.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My goal in working with an patient is to stay focused on the patient's goals. No two people are the same, and neither are their health needs or personal goals. To much of health care today is cookie cutter and assembly line. When I have a patient come through the door I'm going to spend the time it takes to get to know them well so that we can work together to build a program of holistic wellness that will encompass all of their goals. I'm also going to make sure that I not only perform a treatment, but give them the tools they need to take control of their health in their day to day lives, because what they do every day will always have the biggest impact on their health.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. I am Nationally Board Certified in Oriental Medicine which includes acupuncture and herbology. I have also studied with the Healing Tao Institute of Medical Qigong and am Nationally Certified in Medical Qigong. I have do additional training in Tai Chi, Qigong, Pulse Diagnosis, Facial Rejuvenation, and Sports Medicine. I have worked as the Associate Dean and Director of Clinical Studies for the Healing Tao Institute of Medical Qigong, and am currently faculty at the Academy of Oriental Medicine Austin, the #4 school of Chinese Medicine in the nation.
