Led by Dr. Jennifer K. Ronderos, the center's team of registered nurses and licensed aestheticians carefully rejuvenates clients' skin with an array of dermatologic and cosmetic services, including bioidentical hormone therapy, facial peels, microdermabrasion, Botox, and laser vein removal. Because Dr. Ronderos is onsite throughout the week, she often helps to detect medical skin conditions and develop treatment plans through full-body examinations and diagnostic biopsies. Skin services are fueled by products from high-quality brands, including Obagi, Éminence Organic Skin Care, and NeoStrata. Guests may also visit the center for therapist-administered massages, designed to improve circulation and relieve tension built up from days spent posing as a mannequin.
Personal trainer Cindy Lane Ross and her trained staff draw on experience to deliver yoga classes effective enough to warrant a Nappie for muscle-sculpting tutelage. The experienced, certified crew of yoga gurus helm body-toning yoga classes six days a week, honing students' mental focus and body awareness in high-energy power-yoga and beginner-friendly gentle courses. Fusion-based PiYo fortifies the core with abdominal-crunching Pilates, and students in restorative yoga work to improve circulation with stress-releasing lessons that rely on props such as supports and inclined planes. Cindy inspires her students and staff with her own history of conquering rheumatoid arthritis and reducing her BMI, eschewing yo-yo weight loss for the broken-elevator style of lifestyle fitness, which only goes down.

Momentum Massage's licensed massage therapist Jasmine Zinck hasn't stopped studying massage since she discovered it more than a decade ago. A master of many modalities, Jasmine often integrates elements of reflexology, hot-stone therapy, and craniosacral therapy into her sessions. Although she excels at softening muscles and improving mobility, she also delivers less tangible benefits such as opening the body's energy channels, calming emotions, and clearing the mind of lost puzzle pieces.
The experienced dermis doctors at Mosaic Medspa offer patrons a complete list of skin-rejuvenating services and high-tech prettification procedures in a calm, relaxing spa atmosphere. A trio of laser hair-removal sessions zaps away at uncooperative follicles on either the underarm or bikini-line areas, diminishing strand growth with brief pulses of intense light. Each session takes about 15–30 minutes, leaving ample time to return to work or to test the aerodynamics of newly smoothened areas in a bikini-clad relay race or a high-five decathlon.
As a boy, Richard Roush spent his summers cruising the waters of Bayou La Batre aboard his grandfather's shrimp boat, learning skills that would help him work his way through college. Later, he turned his sights inland, learning the restaurant trade and then opening his own oyster plant. He sold his seafood business in 2008 — retiring after 25 years — but was drawn back in by the chance to combine his twin loves of seafood and restauranteuring. The result is The Wacky Shrimp, a family-owned seafood restaurant in Daphne where cooks sizzle up steaming platters of the highest quality shrimp, oysters, and fish the Gulf Coast has to offer. Each meal comes cooked to order, ensuring that it's as fresh as possible when it arrives at your table. The Wacky Shrimp focuses on the family dining experience, catering to all budgets. For children there are Wacky Kids Meals, which include popcorn shrimp, chicken, fish, or grilled cheese.
