Abstract: The Third International/Twelfth European Congress on Musicians¿ Medicine was held in Milan, Italy, on May 8 to 10. Organized by Dott.ssa Rosa Maria Converti, the Congress was focused on the theme of ¿Ergonomics and Music.¿ Speakers from Europe, North America, and Asia gave presentations on a broad range of topics, including key lectures on maladies of some famous musicians who probably suffered from non-ergonomic techniques (given by Eckart Altenmüller) and on the ergonomics of musical instruments (given by Jochen Blum). I gave the third key lecture, on ¿Health Promotion for Musicians,¿ and in this editorial, I will discuss a concept that was part of my presentation.
