All salon service providers are not created equal. That's why Drew James Aveda Salon Spa enlists only Aveda Institute graduates, putting them through an advanced training program before making them work their way up a three-tier ranking system. This emphasis on high-quality staff—coupled with an exclusive selection of plant-based Aveda products—lures clients in for services ranging from basic haircuts to thermal straightening to rosemary-mint body wraps. The salon and spa also adds special touches to many of its treatments, including a complimentary stress-relieving scalp treatment and makeup touchup with each hair service. Both locations feature a wall of mirrors and trendy styling chairs, as well as Aveda tea for clients to sip on while thumbing through style portfolios or folding magazines into swans somehow.

To licensed acupuncturist Rebecca Bridges, surgery and prescription drugs should be a last resort. At Bridges-To-Health, she opts to heal patients with holistic techniques that foster the connection between bodies and minds.

Other alternative-health services include cupping, herbal medicine, and tui na massage.
At Broward Acupuncture and Holistic Medicine, Johanna Nazzar bridges Eastern and Western medicine to forge a holistic health plan catered to each patient.
