15/11/2020, about GBA collaborative course

“Every time i needed to check a muscle test or the correct position of an Acupuncture point, i had to look for them in my manuals and books. Since Knowlative is on line, I just need one of my devices and I can find all I need for my job in just a few clicks, wherever I am, in my studio or several miles away from home. Additionally, to this priceless service, I already had the chance to attend to international conferences which otherwise i would never be able to partecipate. Thanks, you did a great job and I hope you’ll continue to do it!”
