September 2015

September 23 marks the beginning of a new season: beloved autumn. The weather and landscape are hard to beat in Wisconsin, and we could go on and on about our favorite things. But we won’t, as Edgar Albert Guest said it best in his poem:

It’s September

“It’s September, and the orchards are afire with red and gold, 

And the nights with dew are heavy, and the morning’s sharp with cold; 

Now the garden’s at its gayest with the salvia blazing red 

And the good old-fashioned asters laughing at us from their bed; 

Once again in shoes and stockings are the children’s little feet, 

And the dog now does his snoozing on the bright side of the street. 

It’s September, and the cornstalks are as high as they will go, 

And the red cheeks of the apples everywhere begin to show; 

Now the supper’s scarcely over ere the darkness settles down 

And the moon looms big and yellow at the edges of the town; 

Oh, it’s good to see the children, when their little prayers are said, 

Duck beneath the patchwork covers when they tumble into bed. 

It’s September, and a calmness and a sweetness seem to fall 

Over everything that’s living, just as though it hears the call 

Of Old Winter, trudging slowly, with his pack of ice and snow, 

In the distance over yonder, and it somehow seems as though 

Every tiny little blossom wants to look its very best 

When the frost shall bite its petals and it droops away to rest. 

It’s September! It’s the fullness and the ripeness of the year; 

All the work of earth is finished, or the final tasks are near, 

But there is no doleful wailing; every living thing that grows, 

For the end that is approaching wears the finest garb it knows. 

And I pray that I may proudly hold my head up high and smile 

When I come to my September in the golden afterwhile.”

We hope you enjoy the reprieve of the summer heat and the crisp air as much as we do!

Many of us have gotten into the awesome habit of taking our reusable shopping bags to the grocery store. Several grocery stores even have signs in the parking lot, reminding us to grab our bags from our trunks, and offering a nickel discount for each bag used. But we don’t…
There seems to be an epidemic of dementia among seniors. Some of the dementia may be preventable. What I am about to tell you should be common knowledge, but it is not. One of the causes of dementia is shortage of vitamin B12. Low energy levels can also result from…
If we take a moment to consider the part music plays in our lives, we will connect to the fact that our relationship with music started as we were being soothed by lullabies as babies. Whether it be from Mr. Rogers, Captain Kangaroo, Barney or Sesame Street, as children we…
So many products today are advertised as being gluten-free. Some might consider it a marketing ploy and many have written it off as the latest diet fad; however, many people feel better by eliminating gluten from their diet. More importantly, if you have celiac disease, eliminating gluten from your diet…
August was psoriasis awareness month, and although it’s September and kids have headed back to school, we will hopefully have a couple more weekends that people will flock to the pools and beaches; however, many with psoriasis will hesitate because of misperceptions about their skin condition. My hope is that…
The jaw is an area few massage therapists really touch upon — both figuratively and literally. Based on my experience, however, it is an area where most clients need some work. Along with the shoulders, hips, ankles, wrists and neck, the jaw is one of the key areas of the…
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is an ever increasing problem. About 5 percent of men have ED by their 40th birthday, and 25 percent by age 65. Low testosterone (T) causes far more problems than a less than spectacular bedroom performance. Testosterone has a cornucopia of wonderful effects on the body, including…
Whether you’ve had a massage before or not, one of the first things you are asked to do is fill out a medical history form. Why do we need to fill out such an extensive medical history form just to have a massage, you ask? Simply put, it is for…
