Kinex Occupational Therapy

Our Story


Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide evidence based holistic client or family-centred occupational therapy services to individuals of all ages and abilities.

Our Brand Identity

The Kinex logo is meant to graphically represent the attributes of a well functioning body particularly after working with one of the Kinex staff. The light blue elements around the wordmark show smooth, fluid, full range of motion. There is also a strong sense of connectivity represented by the way the elements align through and around the Kinex wordmark. The artwork is meant to visually represent the importance of putting Kinex at the centre of your efforts to maintain a healthy mind, body, and spirit. The colours used are soothing and suggest a clean, clear environment incorporating blue sky and water.
