About our Logo
It was a great honour and
privilege of having world renowned Dr. Phil Nuytten offer to redesign
and paint our logo back in 2003. Kapilano Wellness Centre is located on the 8th floor in the 100 Park Royal Building, formerly known as the Kapilano 100 building. Kapilano Wellness Centre has beautiful panoramic ocean views of downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains. We wanted our logo to reflect the beautiful Pacific West Coast.
Each of the red poles of the cross represents mental, spiritual,
emotional and physical aspects of the human being. The green circle represents the world and the vermilion green is the healing colour used in Native artwork. There are two
hands encompassing or embracing this circle.
"Healing hands around the world helping mental, spiritual, emotional and physical aspects of the human being"
If we turn the logo upside down, we can see a bird-like face with two angry eyes and and open beak.
"When pain reveals its face"
