Stephanie Kines, LMT
Stephanie has been working as a Licensed Massage Therapist in Maryland, before recently making the move north. Working as a healthcare team member, she deeply believes in the healing potential of human touch, in an empathetic and safe environment. Her past certification in group fitness deepens her knowledge of kinetic movements of the body and the delicate relationship of flexibility, strength and function. She is proficient in a wide range of modalities, incorporating passive and active movements to get muscles back to functioning efficiently. Her education in trigger-point pain in the rotator cuff and neck has brought relief to many clients. Stephanie listens to your goals and tailors each massage to your specific needs- understanding and caring for the body as an entire system.
Stephanie is also a Great Life Wall of Famer. She was awarded this honor for her All American Volleyball Career at Juniata College.
Stephanie has hours Wednesday through Saturday by appointment only.
Aleyah Gaffney, LMT
Aleyah Gaffney, a lifelong Philadelphia resident, has been on the Great Life team since October of 2015. Graduating early from high school, Aleyah attended The Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy where she graduated top-of-class. Aleyah was ambitious to get to work and was the first in her class to sign up for the state licensing test. A resident of West Philadelphia, she balances her full time college course load with her position here at Great Life. Thinking of the future, Aleyah hopes to always be working as a massage therapist, but is enjoying her studies and will soon be graduating with a degree in psychology.
Aleyah has afternoon hours Monday and Wednesday through Saturday by appointment only.
José María Centurión, LMT
José María Centurión, originally born in Paraguay, has spent the majority of his life in the Roxborough-Manayunk area. After high school he moved to Orlando to pursue a career as a professional golf instructor; later returning to Philadelphia and graduating from Temple University with a bachelor’s in Exercise Sport Science. Most recently, while living in St. Louis, he made the transition from a full time golf instructor to a full time massage therapist and became a member of the Great Life family upon his return to Philly. He is a self-proclaimed anatomy and physiology nerd and will begin his graduate degree in Exercise Physiology next fall. Although he embraces the more allopathic views of healthcare, he holds a great value in how the combination of chiropractic and massage therapy can truly benefit a client’s health and wellness. He hopes one day to transition with everything he is learning in massage therapy to the field of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
José has hours Sunday through Tuesday by appointment only
