In 2002 Justin was in an auto accident, reinjuring his body. He spent the next two years doing physical therapy and other western medicine and was not seeing the result through this type of training.

For Justin, this meant further study and as a result a new way of life emerged. He started training in the Chinese Healing Arts of Internal Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Still Meditation and Native American Ceremonies including Sweat Lodges (Inipi), Vision Quests (Hanblecheya), The Spirit dance and Sun dance.
