What is Crafta

Physiotherapists and manual therapists but also speech therapists and dentists have shown an increasing clinical and practical interest over the past few years in the craniomandibular and the craniofacial regions.

The professions also show a positive development towards enhanced interdisciplinary cooperation. On this background, CRAFTA® (Cranial Facial Therapy Academy) was founded by Harry von Piekartz and other initiators of various disciplines.
