Hi! My name is Lesha Krantz Nelson and I am is a registered and licensed Occupational Therapist with a special focus and education in Craniosacral Therapy. I have been practicing Craniosacral Therapy since 2011 and certified as a therapist from the Upledger Institute in 2014. 

I started my Craniosacral journey in 2010 when I had a session myself. Not only did it help me recover from an ankle injury, I had improved relaxation, decreased stress, and emotional well-being. I decided I needed to learn this amazing technique for my occupational therapy clientele. I started taking classes around the country and opened my personal practice in 2012. In 2015 I decided I was too busy working at both Primary Children's and in my personal office so I took a leap of faith and went full time into my personal practice.  

I have taken numerous classes specializing in pregnancy and birthing, newborns and pediatrics, immune system disorders, and brain/ head trauma and concussion. My graduate level education provided me with extensive training in anatomy, kinesiology, movement analysis, and rehabilitation. In addition I have studied wholistic nutrition and Ayurveda. In 2015 I became a registered yoga teacher and Kalari movement teacher.  

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City and reside in the Millcreek Area. I love to spend my free time mountain biking, skiing, practicing yoga and Kalari, and hanging out with my husband and my dog. I have a passion for learning and am constantly taking classes in a wide variety of subjects that I can incorporate into my practice.
