While working a cruise ship, holistic doctor and acupuncturist Ahuva Gamliel treated a passenger complaining of digestive issues. Impressed by how fast she found relief, the patient said she would send her husband so that Gamliel could treat his shoulder pain. But the woman added, "My husband is not going to tell you this, but he has erectile dysfunction and I want you to treat him for it." Noticing the man didn't mention erectile dysfunction on his intake form, Gamliel proceeded to treat him for it anyway, along with tending to his shoulder. A few days later, the woman stopped by and said, "What did you do to him? I feel like we are on our second honeymoon." Dr. Gamliel thrives on hearing such patient testimonials. Knowing since she was 5 years old that she would become a doctor, Gamliel began working as a phlebotomist in high school. But her first experiences with conventional medicine—which she recalls as "cold, callous, and impersonal"—left her disenchanted. After completing undergraduate study in psychobiology, Gamliel discovered the field of natural medicine and went on to earn a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture from Bastyr University. Today, Gamliel pursues her vision of bringing natural healthcare to the masses through MiBaSo, an acronym for mind, body, and soul. Gamliel hopes to turn MiBaSo into a franchised, membership-based practice that increases the visibility, accessibility, and affordability of natural medicine.

Oscar Ochoa's passion for salsa dancing sprouted at age 9, grew rapidly at age 18 when he began taking formal lessons, and blossomed at age 24 when he won first place at a salsa competition. Today, the founder of Miami Salsa Driven combines his dancing expertise with the physical discipline he's developed from years of practicing tae kwon do and Brazilian jujitsu to lead detail-oriented salsa lessons. His team puts a big emphasis on creating an environment in which beginners feel welcome and unintimidated by advanced dancers trying to show off complex moves, such as the iceless triple axel. Students have ranged from seasoned dancers to a first-timer police-department captain, who actually ended up joining a professional dance team. Located inside the Tempo Music and Dance Academy, Miami Salsa Driven's classes focus on improving students' self-confidence and fitness levels with hands-on instruction and practice. One of the studio's walls is completely covered in full-length mirrors, allowing dancers to adjust their posture to match the instructor's or enjoy uninterrupted eye contact with themselves.
Wind-leashed high-flier and Skybanditz founder Francisco Escudero has blown spectators away at such competitions as the Velocity Games and the Bahamas kite race. He is the North Miami Beach area coordinator of the Florida Kitesurfing Association and founder of Skybanditz, where he and his trained staff conduct all manner of surf- and sky-borne expeditions. They outfit maritime adventurers with all the proper kiteboarding, kayaking, and paddleboarding gear, as well as lead kayak tours through Marine Stadium and several small islands. They also give guests the option to explore the high seas on their own or with friends. Instructors, meanwhile, cover safety and proper techniques during kitesurfing programs that range from beginner level to Level X, an echelon they reserve for students who are ultra-advanced or genetically related to flying squirrels.
Though Dr. Patricia Ares-Romero has extensive training in functional, anti-aging medicine, she still maintains a passion for holistic treatment. As the chief medical director of SmartBody MD, she combines the two disciplines to create a wellness buffet, directing a medical staff and personally helping patients design custom programs to address their concerns and work around their nighttime superhero responsibilities. These programs can incorporate medically supervised weight-loss regimens or basic nutritional guidance, but they all have the same goals: promoting whole-body well-being and developing healthful habits. To this end, knowledge is the most powerful tool that Dr. Ares-Romero and her staff share with patients, but they occasionally use lipotropic injections, dietary supplements, Botox, or bio-identical hormone treatments to aid them in their efforts.
