I believe that together, we can bring Health and Care back into the healthcare system.– Dr. Clemson
Dr. Clemson: Healer ~ Physician, Shaman, Medicine Woman ~ a deeply spiritual Being with a strong love of nature, family and the healing arts. The crossroads of science, philosophy, ancient wisdom and Spirit is her favorite place to hang out. Anything that takes her outdoors is a favorite activity: hiking, biking, walking or just sitting under a tree quietly, listening to birdsong and breezes, watching the grass grow and the clouds float by. Qigong in all its forms is a foundational element of her daily life. She is a life-long learner who loves to discover new things. Her deep-seated appreciation of nature and science led her to educational experiences in microbiology, food science, academic research in exercise and applied physiology, conventional medicine and ancient traditional healing arts. Dr. Clemson is board certified in Family Medicine and has been a practicing primary care provider for more than twenty years. She has practiced Reiki for more than thirty years and is a certified Reiki Master. In 2017, she completed the University of Arizona’s prestigious Fellowship in Integrative Medicine under the leadership of internationally renowned proponent of Integrative Medicine and holistic health, Dr. Andrew Weil. In 2018, Dr. C, as she is known to her patients, achieved additional board certification in Integrative Medicine. She is excited to share her knowledge, interests and passions with the partners in health who choose Trinity Wellness as an ally on their healing journeys.
My greatest joy is in sharing the tools to cultivate self-healing and transformation for the realization of wellbeing and optimal health for All.

She was born and grew up in Bellefonte, PA, the youngest of five siblings and still has strong ties to this beautiful historic town and the surrounding valleys.

Formally, Dr. Clemson holds degrees in microbiology, exercise physiology and osteopathic medicine and surgery. She is board certified in Family Medicine and has been a practicing primary care provider for more than twenty years. She also has had a deep connection to alternative and complementary healing practices since her young adulthood and this came forward in interests in herbalism, energy medicine, exercise and nutrition for health, mindfulness and what was known at the time as alternative medicine.
Dr. Clemson has been a certified Reiki practitioner for more than thirty years and is a certified Reiki Master. Currently, her energy medicine practice comprises modalities from multiple energy medicine traditions and continues to develop and evolve with deeper study and experience. Her areas of expertise and special interest include: food as medicine; exercise science and movement therapies; Shamanism in the Celtic, Maya and Native American traditions with current tutelage through the Foundation for Shamanic Studies; use of ceremony and ritual for healing; herbalism in the form of plants as everyday medicine as well as use of essential oils, supplemental botanicals and plant essences for healing and support; and other ancient Traditional Medicine Systems, such as Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy and Energy Medicine modalities. Her core personal practice and love is Qigong in all its forms, and she is currently in training for teaching certification in YoQi – a modern fusion of Taoist and Hindu yoga rooted in traditional Qigong practices and philosophy. She holds additional medical expertise in Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy (OMT), including certification in Cranial Osteopathy by the Cranial Academy. She completed the prestigious University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine Fellowship in Integrative Medicine as founded and directed by Dr. Andrew Weil.

Working together to establish a new paradigm of health care for humanity and the planet.
We are the solution.
