Coping with Back-to-School Stress

Say Yes to Reducing Stress

Returning to a school-day routine can be enough to prompt anyone to recall high levels of stress and anxiety. But here at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club, we are deeming these burdens unnecessary and providing our members with real-time coping mechanisms that will last throughout the semester and beyond.

First, let’s consider the undue stress that school is placing on Mom — driving kids to class and post-class activities, helping them with homework, and dealing with the drama associated with childhood friendships … nothing that the Golden Ocala Spa can’t fix. Designed for wellness and relaxation, the spa can be customized based on combinations of beauty, skin care and massage. Fluffy robes, soothing aromatherapy, indulgent products, libations and a café-inspired cuisine are just some of what’s in store.

Speaking of massages, Mom can upgrade her next massage with CryoDerm® Magnesium Calming Cream within a private soaking bath. It is harvested from the Dead Sea and contains 21 minerals that naturally occur in our bodies and are lost throughout the day. Needed to help treat, detoxify and cleanse the body, magnesium calms nerves and muscles, aids in the reduction of cramping and hyper-tonicity, and combats stress and fluid detention. Therefore, it combats arthritis, fibromyalgia, bruises and sprains, insomnia, tired legs and feet, and headaches.


Additional Stress-Relieving StrategiesMagnesphere

To complement this mineral-enriched bath, Mom can even schedule a session in our Magnesphere™ — a device that transitions the body from “fight or flight” to a restful state via low-frequency electromagnetic fields. Inside the Magnesphere is a zero-gravity recliner to help her experience deep, full-body relaxation.

On that note, not only is August back-to-school time, but Wellness month! Now through August 31st, Mom can indulge in a synchronized 30-minute foot reflexology and Magnesphere cycle. That’s $25 off the introductory visit and half off the second appointment.

And when Mom feels her best, she can look at her best with other wellness services, such as facials, hydra facials, waxing, lash extensions, tinting, and of course, hairstyling and treatments.

For more information on all the above, call the Golden Ocala Spa and Salon at (352) 402-4350.


Suppressing Stress with Sportsjunior golf clinic

At Golden Ocala, active living goes hand in hand with wellness — and this is where the kids are the center of attention. Summer golf clinics may be ending, but not without the Inaugural Parent-Child Tournament on Sunday, October 14th. There is also plenty of time to register for 2018 Junior Golf (ages 5 and above). Questions include skill level, dexterity, health concerns and clinic dates — two of which are coming up on Saturday, September 8th and 15th. Join Golf Director Ryan Gray and professional Thomas Moore to learn or improve your game. For more information, email thomas.moore@goldenocala.com.

Teaching Toddlers Tennis

But if your children want to try to suppress back-to-school stress in a different way, there is always tennis on one of Golden Ocala’s six Har-Tru Hydro-Grid playing courts. In addition to joining a junior, USPTA-certified tennis program, they can register for private or group lessons and be treated like a true athlete every time they step foot on the courts. The latest technological and teaching developments mean satisfaction, regardless of skill level. And to really blow off some steam, parents can even accompany their tennis-loving children in a night game on an all-lit court. For more email information, email Director of Tennis “T” Chetty at tchetty@goldenocala.com.


Swim Away from StressFamily in Golden Ocala pool

Luckily for Florida-raised kids, watersports do not cease along with summer. Golden Ocala’s new aquatics instructor, Leslie Lee, still has an extensive itinerary that will help children to swim right passed the stress that school may bring. These lessons include games, technique improvement, water safety, overcoming traumatic water experiences and water aerobics.

To help further reduce stress via swimming and enhance Leslie’s structured programs, Golden Ocala asks that children under age 14 be supervised by a parent or guardian and that children not display dangerous behaviors, such as wrestling or rough-housing, pushing, running and ducking. For more information, call Leslie at (352) 629-6229.


Golden Ocala looks forward to easing your family’s back-to-school transition. Lean on our highly experienced staff for any type of support that suites your schedule and lifestyle, while enjoying all that this piece of paradise has to offer.
