More than 30 years ago, aesthetician Lucille Parker founded Valley Paramedical Skin & Health Care as a holistic haven for women. As the decades passed on, Parker began to notice more men coming in search of her alternative therapies. Now, she and her staff—which includes a reflexologist, manicurist, and massage therapist—educate clients of any gender and age about their bodies and how to heal them.
Parker helps erase skin issues including fine lines and acne with her specialty treatments that call upon nonacnegenic cosmetics, such as plant-based serums and enzyme masks. The staff also runs metabolic nutritional counseling, which can include recommendations for Metagenics supplements and the center’s six-step lifestyle program called First Line Therapy, Whole Body Health. The program focuses on teaching clients how to live a therapeutic lifestyle by eliminating toxins, decreasing body fat, reducing daily stressors, and never, ever running with scissors.
