FINALISTS! The Business Leader awards

Sep 3, 2021

Great news! We are delighted to be shortlisted in the Business Leader Awards 2021. Bridge Health & Wellbeing has been selected as a finalist in the Family Business Award category.

The Business Leader Awards has become one of the most prestigious and celebrated business events of the year in the South West.

The event brings together influential leaders in business, education and government to recognise and celebrate business success, supported by the area’s most important professionals and advisors.

Nearly 250 businesses, entrepreneurs and organisations from across the South West entered the 15 categories in this year’s awards. The winners will be crowned on Thursday September 23 at a spectacular black-tie gala evening at Ashton Gate in Bristol. The event is being hosted by renowned comedian and television personality Tom Allen.

“We are very proud to have been selected as a finalist in these prestigious South West business awards. As a husband-and-wife team, family is at the heart of everything we do. It’s at the core of the welcoming wellbeing community we are striving to create here at Bridge Health & Wellbeing.”

Paul O’Connell, physiotherapist and co-founder of Bridge Health & Wellbeing

“We wish all the finalists good luck for the evening. It’s been such a tough few years for so many businesses. We all deserve a chance to celebrate. Our first two years in business turned out to be an even greater challenge than we expected with the huge impact of COVID. But our clients have been fantastic and made all the effort worthwhile. As the only Dorset business in our category, we’ll be hoping to bring it home for Dorset!”

Louise O’Connell, Pilates teacher and co-founder

Having been runners up in the Family Business Awards earlier this year, it would be amazing to go one further and win.

But we also recognise there are so many brilliant, well-established family businesses out there. Just being listed amongst them is a real achievement.

At Bridge Health and Wellbeing, we are a friendly, family-run clinic in the heart of Christchurch in Dorset. We offer high quality physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, sports massage, expert Pilates, Yoga, Chi Kung and state-of-the-art gym facilities all under one roof.

Whether you need help with pain or injury, or just want to stay fit and healthy, join us for your journey. Book your appointment or class online now or call 01202 473800 to speak to our friendly team of wellbeing experts.



We were super proud to see our chiropractor Aaron lecturing at the international RCC Sports Faculty Symposium 2022. We are lucky to have such global experts working at our clinic. We have also expanded the gym and rehabilitation services this year, including opening up the space for more equipment to assist with recovery.

We couldn’t have done any of it without the support of you, our fantastic clients. So thank you to each and every one of you for helping make our vision of creating a dedicated health and wellbeing space in the heart of Christchurch where everyone is welcome a reality.

Here’s to 2023!
