A Pill for Libido, Really?
Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.

As an internist who sees hundreds of women in the second half of life, I am all too familiar with women's waning libidos. Having gone through menopause myself, I have personally experienced the power that changing hormones have on many psychological and bodily functions that the younger me took for granted. As an integrative physician, I am always searching for causes of symptoms and for natural and integrative ways to treat and heal them. Our society sees a waning libido as a pathological symptom. Viewing our aging bodies as pathological is where our problem truly lies. 

Pregnant? You Need a Massage!
Leslie Jaeschke, LMT

Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on and accommodates the special needs of the mom-to-be as her body goes through the miraculous changes of pregnancy. It relieves the aches and pains of a growing belly, relaxes foot and lower leg muscles from the extra body weight, relieves mental and physical fatigue, and nurtures the mom-to-be. Prenatal massage not only eases the discomforts of pregnancy, but also helps the mom-to- be prepare for labor by way of allowing the body to relax easier through focused breath and a calm mind. Research has shown that prenatal massage can be instrumental in women's prenatal care.

Boris Matthews, PhD: C.G. Jung Institute Film Series in Chicago

We are proud to announce that our own Boris Matthews, PhD will be leading a workshop in Chicago on Friday, September 25th from 1-4PM using the 1993 film,  Groundhog Day, as the framework to discuss the bullet points of Jungian therapy: namely that life tends toward self-actualization, depending upon one's ability to perceive and modify behaviors. Learn more here.  To schedule a private appointment with Boris call us at 262.695.5311.   
On September 18, 10AM-1PM,  Boris will be part of a free, panel discussion at the Jung Institute in Chicago entitled,  Getting to Know Jung: Three Key Concepts.  This talk is also available free of charge online. Learn more here.
Both events are open to the public, you do not need to be a therapist, student, or person receiving Jungian therapy to attend.  We encourage anyone interested in Jungian analysis to participate.
