Our Mission

Our mission is to support the healthy transformation of body, mind and spirit by offering beauty services for hair, skin and nails. We aim to sustain this change by providing education and empowerment.

We support the reunion of beauty, health and nature by introducing our guests to BECOME, our line of organic and wild-crafted personal care products, by LifeGive. This is not another line of beauty products. This is a way of being. This is a way of life.

Self-Love + Self-Nurturance + Self-Expression = Self-Confidence, which cultivates beauty and are fundamental to creating a sustainable, happy, healthful life.

Become Salon and Skin Center at Hippocrates Health Institute is available to our guests in the Life Transformation Program, Students in the Health Educator Program and the General Public both on our campus and through e-commerce.

For our Life Transformation Guests, the salon and skin center is integrated into the program to help guests transform their external image to better reflect their newly discovered internal image.

For the local Florida, and West Palm Beach Residence or people passing through we invite you to come in and experience our services on a daily basis and take advantage of our new series and reward programs.

We provide services to nurture, to pamper, to heal with organic, natural products in a supportive positive chemical free environment.

    We believe that health and beauty are one system, one whole.
  • We make beauty food.
    Our safe, pure, wild-crafted and organic ingredients feed your body through your skin.
  • Transparency is important to us. We are proud of our ingredients. We don’t want to hide anything from you. Our labels are clear and complete.


Meet Salon Director Marty Landau

I love when a guest comes in to talk about a new look or just to get information.  I can help them realize what is possible and how special they are, it makes my day,  I’ve been honored to work with people from many countries, ages and backgrounds and I love to see the transformation they go through here from literally head to toe.  I’m grateful to have the opportunity to see them find their true essence and create their best person both inside and out.  Magic truly does happen here.

Marty has over 40 years in the beauty industry, including years of study in Europe at both Sassoon’s Academy in London and at Dessange in Paris.  She has specialized in Organic products such as Color Herbe (Italian organic color and hair care product lines).  She owned her own Salon and Spa in Pennsylvania for over 10 years and provided speciality services such as natural hair extensions and low level light laser therapy that help in maintaining shiny, healthy and youthful hair.

Marty is a graduate of the Hippocrates Health Educator Program and she incorporates her passion for beauty and the human spirit into the classes she leads in our Life Transformation and Health Educator Program at Hippocrates Health Institute.  From the salon to your own kitchen, you will discover and learn about the nurturing and healing properties in natural ingredients.  Learn to feed the hair, the skin and the soul and feel your confidence and personal power grows.  Marty has many interests outside of her career: she is a member of the Environmental Working Group, A supporter of the Ocean Protection Organization and the Women’s Voices for the Earth.  She also loves to sail and holds her Captains 50 Ton Coast Guard Master License.

Shawna Britt

ShawnaBrittShawna was born and raised in Vero Beach and raised in West Palm Beach.  She came to work at Hippocrates Health Institute in January 2015 and quickly began to love working at Hippocrates, like so many other staff here.  She bonded with Marty, the Salon and Skin Center Director, as she has the same heart-felt desire as Marty, to genuinely want to put a smile on someone’s face.  Shawna had a successful career as a Cosmetologist for over 20 years before coming to work professionally at Hippocrates Health institute.

Like Marty, Shawna is conscious that what we put on our skin and in our hair, needs to be chemical free and organic.  Shawna earned a Bachelor degree in Nutritional Science in 2012 and working at Hippocrates Health Institute she is fully committed to helping guests to look beautiful and fully educate them to use healthy products in their hair and on their skin. Shawna’s background in helping people while they are challenged is her passion for example Steve who was on oxygen 24/7 said to her one day when she arrived at his home to take care of his hair “You are the only one that truly cares about me”.

Shawna was influenced by her mom who was an herbalist and taught her how to use Mother Nature to grow healthy and heal.

Shawna feels so blessed to have found Hippocrates where she can work in an environment that is healthy using organic remedies and helping people each day.

to stay involved in community while learning better ways of fun healthy living

Rima’s hair was falling out by handfuls and psoriasis was taking over her scalp. The BECOME Organic Salon and Marty came to the rescue. Marty explained the difference in the color she was using and the plant based extract color and how receiving more oxygen to the scalp could improve her condition. Her natural based color and signature scalp massage and laser treatment was the venue. With in one month there was a big difference. Rima says her hair is thicker and has more shine and body than it did in her 20s.

Older people can enjoy good heath, more energy along with  natural hair color and clear beautiful skin.

Rima loves working with such professionals as Marty and Shawna.

She feels that her life experience has enabled her to contribute to the salon atmosphere. She has a passion for sharing the Hippocrates lifestyle and the knowledge it has given her. What a wonderful opportunity it is to meet people from all over the globe.
