"Take the first step to a better future for your Mind and Body"
About Matt Long
I am an Advanced Soft Tissue Therapist, this includes Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy, Advanced Medical Acupuncture. I also qualified in Osteopathic Spinal Manipulation™ and Osteopathic Articulation™, achieving my Level 5 BTEC at the renowned London School of Sports & Remedial Massage and Osteon Manual Therapy Training. I soon after increased my ability to help people by training in Hypnotherapy and CBT.
I am experienced in supporting people with many conditions such as fibromyalgia, cerebral palsy, ankylosing spondylitis and arthritis. I can even get great results when massaging through clothes if this makes you feel more comfortable.
Before I became a Therapist, I served 22 years in the RAF Regiment. I participated in many sports such as long distance running, martial arts, orienteering and swimming.
My sports passions now are Mountain Biking, Kayaking and Scuba Diving. (Much kinder to my knees.)
The Mind & Body Clinic
I practice from my lovely warm Log Cabin Clinic in the rear garden of my family home in Bury St Edmunds. I start off with a postural and joint assessment where necessary. Then I use my extensive knowledge and expertise, to create a personal treatment plan for each and every client.

Increase good hormones such as Serotonin, Dopamine and Endorphins.
Promote Faster Recovery After Injury
Loosen Stiff & Tight Muscles

I am a fully qualified and insured Hypnotherapist; I trained with the world renowned and highly regarded UK Hypnosis Academy with whom I am now an Associated Trainer. I am also trained as a practitioner and Associated Trainer in the Kinetic Shift technique which is Active, Intuitive, Dynamic and Highly Effective.
Kinetic Shift is a rapid method combining several different techniques to resolve Fears, Phobias, Anxiety, and Weight Loss, Smoking and even PTSD and much more. We all know that we can’t express everything we want to verbally, so we use several other methods of communication and that is key to Kinetic Shift.
Here are just some of the things Hypnotherapy can help with:
Fears & Phobias
Confidence and low self-esteem
Smoking and weight control
Hypnosis can be done content free, can be fun and it is life changing, it is an experience you’ll never forget.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT)
I am also a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) which is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.
