Sacred Lotus Acupuncture and Natural Health

Lynn Carstens graduated from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, Illinois with a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine. She is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is licensed as an acupuncturist by the Iowa State Board of Medical Examiners. Lynn is the owner of Sacred Lotus Acupuncture and has been involved with the Quad Cities natural healing community for over 17 years.

Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat various medical problems such as headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, fertility concerns, hormonal imbalances, PMS, perimenopause, and much more.

A few of the services provided by Sacred Lotus Acupuncture include sliding scale acupuncture, acupressure, facial rejuvenation, raindrop massage therapy, cupping, BioMat Therapy, ear candling, Ion Foot Cleanse, rest and rejuvenation therapy (with or without acupuncture), and LED infra-red therapy with all treatments performed while the patient is laying on a gemstone-filled heated mat.

The rainbow chakra mat is designed to restore clarity and balance to your body’s energy centers. The inframat contains a unique combination of seven heated gemstones which effectively provide mental, physical, and spiritual relief. The mat also incorporates far-infrared, negative ions, PEMF, and photon lights which provide deep penetrating warmth, pain relief, comforting relaxation, immunity boost, well-being, and better health.

Orangetheory Fitness

We are a total-body group fitness class that uses science, coaching, and technology to help you reach your goals! We use heart-rate-based interval training, with five heart rate zones designed to increase your metabolism and help you burn more calories!

Our workout is not HIIT. It is heart rate-based interval training, where our certified coach will guide you through our 5 different heart rate zones: resting, easy, challenging, uncomfortable and All Out, telling you when to push harder and when to pull back for recovery. The goal is to spend 12 minutes or more with your heart rate elevated in “The Orange Zone” to boost your metabolism, burn fat, and burn more calories.

Rowing – Every stroke on the rower activates 85% of your body’s muscles. This low-impact workout helps you improve endurance, strength, and power.
Cardio – Whether you walk, jog, or run, you’ll go at your own pace based on your fitness level. We also have bikes and striders available as alternates to the treadmill.
Strength Training – Our weight and floor exercises change daily so you can focus on different muscles. Your coach can provide options for any movement if you have injuries or limitations.
