Beauty News: Repêchage Spas & Migraine Research Foundation Team Up for Migraine Awareness Month

1 in 10 Americans suffer from migraines.

Repêchage is teaming up with the Migraine Research Foundation and spas nationwide to raise funds and awareness in honor of June’s Migraine Awareness Month. Did you know 1 in 10 Americans (10% of population) suffer from migraines? Amazingly, the cause of the disease is still unknown and about half of all migraine sufferers are never diagnosed.

These shocking statistics have motivated Lydia Sarfati, founder & CEO of Repêchage, to create a special treatment called Repêchage “Sweet Relief,” which includes a scalp massage and lymphatic face massage to help relieve pain, boost the immune system and promote the body’s own healing mechanisms. Eager to support the cause, Repêchage spas including Vito Mazza Salon & Spa in Woodbridge, NJ; Three-13 Salon, Spa & Boutique in Marietta, GA; Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique in Chicago, IL; Lovella Salon in New York, NY; and Christie & Co. Salon & Spa in Flushing, NY are all offering the treatment throughout the month of June and donating at least 10 percent of profits to the Migraine Research Foundation for each treatment received.

“Repêchage is proud to help spread knowledge about migraine as it is a disease that impacts so many people on a daily basis. Massage treatments can really help soothe some of the discomfort associated with these powerful and chronic headaches and planning these fundraising events seemed like the perfect way to bring awareness and relief at the same time,” said Shiri Sarfati, Executive Vice President of Repêchage.
