JoAnne Lutz completed her MSN degree through Oregon Health Sciences University in 1998. She has worked locally in Eugene in Family Practice for 15 years. In her previous practice she provided primary care services to patients experiencing acute and chronic illness. In addition, she focused on preventative services and health coaching for all her patients.
In her new practice setting at Healing Spirit Integrative Health Center, JoAnne continues to provide primary care services as well as focusing on prevention and health promotion activities. Health promotion can be defined as the art and science of assisting patients in changing their lifestyle to move toward a state of optimal health.
JoAnne co-facilitates a 6-week stress reduction, resource management program under the auspices of the Northwest Center for Health Promotion. The purpose of the program is to provide participants with training in stress reduction and resource management to improve health, quality of life, and performance.
“I’m excited about practicing medicine in an integrative health care setting. Eastern and western modalities needn’t be mutually exclusive. Here at Health Spirit Integrative Health Center we are striving to bring together the best of both.”
