Leslie Clapp is a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Amma Therapy. Her training incompasses deep tissue & acupoint manipulation, swedish techniques, nutritional guidance, and alternative therapies such as Moxibustion, Cupping and Gua Sha, as well as mindful movement. Leslie is intuitive in her practice, and sees the importance of meeting her clients where they are at, to find ways to integrate positive shifts within the mind, body, and lifestyle. Amma Therapy can treat a wide spectrum of imbalances from muscular tension and strains(acute and chronic), to digestive issues, headaches, trouble with sleep, menstrual imbalances, anxiety and more. Amma is a preventive bodywork therapy, which aims to support the system both in a state of balance and when out of balance for optimum health.

She is a student of Gong Fu and Manual Medicine where she trains at Three Stones Internal Arts in St. Johns. She also has a background in gardening, and has completed training in various outdoor educational studies, such as Permaculture Design and Medicinal Plant Studies in Cambridge Massachusetts. She is originally from the East coast, and has been happily living here in Portland with her husband for the past 4 years.
She looks forward to connecting with you wherever you may be on your journey and sharing all that this unique lineage of medicine has to offer.
