About Etienne Peirsman

Etienne Peirsman

Etienne Peirsman is one of the most respected CranioSacral teachers worldwide, and has been teaching for over 30 years. He is the founder and director of Peirsman CranioSacral Academy (PCA) in the Netherlands, and originated the CranioSacral Professional Organization in Holland, and is an honorary member of The Dutch CranioSacral Practitioner Association (NCSV). Additionally, he taught CS at the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts and Bastyr University for nearly a decade. He now teaches at his new school, Peirsman CranioSacral in Escabosa, New Mexico. Etienne is also the author of the wonderful book, Craniosacral Therapy for Babies and Small Children.


As a meditator of over 40 years, Etienne Peirsman developed a unique teaching style over the past two decades that adds an extraordinarily compassionate and meditative depth to the methods used by the Upledger Institute and combines a practical, no-nonsense approach with the biodynamic style. 


His specialty is the expression of the Heart, the long tide, and their connection to meditation and enlightenment. He has said, “Drop the word therapy. It is not part of who and what we are. Face it, you are perfect and your heart is perfect."
