“A lot of people ask me how I am going to fix their chronic headaches when no other therapist has been able to.

My simple answer is this. Most therapists you see, focus on the area you are feeling your pain, your neck, upper back and even your head in the case of headaches. They try to fix it from there alone when in reality there is so much more to do.

It is my experience that 99% of pain, including headaches and migraines, is set up from somewhere else in the body. This is why in my treatment, I always work on your full body for one hour!

I search out your problem muscles and then get them working properly again to restore balance and function to your body. I work towards freeing up your compressed, restricted spine, by releasing muscle pressure from it. This restores a flow of energy throughout the body and resets the neurological functions that begin in the spine.

The end result for the large majority of people, is no more pain. And, It usually stays away because you now have a level, balanced pelvis and muscle system and a straight, supple spine, along with better posture, more flexibility and a much better sense of wellbeing.

My work is comfortably deep and thorough and every problem area is found and worked on during every 1 hour treatment. You won’t have experienced anything like it before.

I believe pain is the result of inflammation caused by pressure building up in a part of your body that it shouldn’t be, from a body that is not functioning with the right balance. I am an expert at finding the cause of that pressure and taking it away. The flow on effect of this is no more pain and I usually achieve higher than an 80% success rate with getting rid of most pains quickly and effectively.

If you want a treatment that does the job and leaves you feeling light, loose, tall, energised and relaxed all at the same time, please call

Steve Lockhart.
“I have been receiving treatment from SLM Gold Coast Pain therapist Steve Lockhart for over 10 years. I was disappointed when he left Sydney. I made the trip from Sydney to Robina this week for treatment and it was certainly worth the journey. Brad (independent Patient review posted on 3rd party site whitecoat.com.au) ….more reviews.
Steve Lockhart is arguably Australia’s leading Injury and Pain Therapist and is now available for appointments at his clinic on the Gold Coast in Queensland. If you aren’t local and suffer from chronic pain, come and stay for a week for some intensive treatment and enjoy a beautiful holiday on the coast.

His therapy SLM Bodywork, is based on a healing method that goes back hundreds of years to Japan. It is a combination of massage and acupressure that treats the whole body back into balance, finding and fixing dysfunctional muscles to create flexibility and unrestricted circulation and movement and most importantly taking away pain quickly and effectively.

It doesn’t matter who you have already seen or what diagnosis you have been given, expect a different approach with far better results when you are treated by Steve.

“I have been seeing Steve for just over a year now and I can’t praise him enough. The pain and discomfort I suffered for many years due to bulging discs in the lower back, the many trips to the emergency ward and stays in hospital, the time off work and the near loss of my business. With regular treatment and advice I am now able to do things I haven’t been able to do for years, as well as being able to pick up my grandkids.” Thanks Steve. Tony Carpenter” ……more reviews.

“I had been experiencing severe back pain for a number of years. MRI confirming numerous problems such as bulging discs. After seeking help from numerous professionals resulting in minimal relief, surgery seemed to be my only option. After further extensive research I came across Steve. Result was nothing short of a miracle. Forever grateful Steve.” ……more reviews.

“Stephen Lockhart is exceptional. I have had sciatic pain for over a year and struggled to get through the day without pain killers. I had previously tried physio, chiro, and acupuncture all with no results. I have had 4 sessions with Stephen and I am virtually pain free and my strength is rapidly returning. He has also given me specific exercises and techniques to help build me back to the man I used to be. I am living again now not just coping. Thank you so very much Steve.” Cheers David Young……more reviews.

“Very professional, holistic approach to working out where your pain has originated. I highly recommend Steve if you have any ongoing pain that no one else can seem to fix.”….more reviews.


A problem with the neck will often lead to headaches, but where is the problem in the neck coming from? A therapist’s inability to fix headaches properly is often because they don’t look further than that localised area. There are a lot of nerves around the neck and when they are under the wrong sort of pressure they can easily trigger headaches. It’s the pressure and where it comes from that stumps most therapists into failing to provide any real lasting relief.

When treating headaches Steve will take into account ALL of the factors that can contribute to the pain, including things like blockages to circulation, posture, muscle function and dysfunction and lifestyle and diet which can affect the condition of the muscles generally. Taking all these things into account during treatment means Steve can usually achieve very good results, very quickly.

“I have had literally thousands of massage treatments over the years. Steve Lockhart is right at the top of the list. I genuinely believe that his knowledge of the human body is unsurpassed and his easy going manner adds to the first class experience. If you are in pain, Go and see Steve” ……more reviews.

“My husband was in constant agony with leg, back and hip pain. I searched for a solution to this and finally found Steve. After the first visit my husband came back walking normally and with a smile I hadn’t seen in a long time. He goes regularly for maintenance and Steve has been able to keep him almost pain free for a few years now. We have recommended others to him who have found great relief and have even cancelled surgeries after visiting Steve. A lifesaver!” ……more reviews.

It doesn’t matter which part of the body is experiencing pain the same rules and treatment protocol apply. There is really no such thing as an expert on any specific part of the body, because if you really understand how the body works and what sets up chronic pain, then you can apply the same treatment principals and get a very good result with any pain.

“Before relocating to the North Coast I regularly visited a therapist trained by Steve, he was sensational and I received great relief, so of course when I moved it went without saying that I would visit Steve for relief. I am a swimmer and participate in triathlons for fun and often experience lower back, shoulder and tennis elbow complaints. Stephen Lockhart always gives me great relief and I would recommend him to anyone.” ……more reviews.

“After a long and frustrating road to find a good therapist I came across Steve. He is a very warm hearted, very welcoming and very knowledgeable Therapist who helped me thru my injuries and allowed me to be able to walk down the aisle on my wedding day without a limp! For that I will be forever grateful and very much appreciative. Highly recommend him and he’s brilliant talent” ..……more reviews.

“Incredibly knowledgeable and experienced. I haven’t experienced anything like what Steve does before, fantastic results”……more reviews.

“I can wholeheartedly recommend Steve and his techniques for amazing results, this was my first season at soccer for years where I didn’t pull up sore and stiff. Seeing Steve was the only thing I did differently!” ……more reviews.
