Tree of Life Hypnosis was founded in 2010 by Felice Austin, CHt. She chose the name Tree of Life because it is only symbol that exists in all religions and forms of spirituality. The life giving tree, the symbol of physical and spiritual growth and change is also structurally balanced between earth (where her roots are) and sky, as her branches reach toward heaven.
