Promomed chooses Bologna as location for the Crafta® course, giving all health professionals that register for the course the possiblity to visit the city hosting the most ancient university of the world. In addition to the outstanding training of the Cranio Facial Therapy Academy the participants will have the chance to enjoy the alleys of the old town of Bologna and get a taste of the multiple faces the city has to offer.


Interdisciplenary course (restricted to physiotherapists, dentists, speech therapists, otolaryngologists, and other health professionals) focused on the management of patients with dysfunctions and pain in the cranio-mandibular and cranio-facial region. The course is divided into two parts of 5 days each (10-14 May 2018 and, to be confirmed, 8-12 Novembre 2018), given by instructors Michiel Trouw and Harry von Piekartz respectively.



The Crafta® course in Bologna will take place at SpaziO2. A dynamic and innovative setting, incubator and promoter of events and projects in the green surrounding of the Giardini Margherita. Only a short walk from the centre of Bologna, this new location has already become a hot spot for meetings, exchanges and growth offering courses and programs, information and education to professionals and non.
