About the Clinic

Pressure Point Training Clinic is based in the Old School Business Centre on Church Drive which actually was an old primary school up to 2009 and before that, a girls’ school from 1896.

The post code NG5 6LD will take you to Church Drive East which is just off Church Drive. Useful reference points are all a one minute drive away: Sainsburys, Aldi, Wickes and St Pauls Church (the spire is the tallest in Arnold so if you are lost – head for that).

If you are planning on taking a weekend course, Premier Inn is a short walk away with rooms from £29 per night

Access & Car Parking

You can park in the old playground which is through the gates at the right hand side of the building – there are many spaces, and on your way in you can have a quick game of hopscotch!!

At the front door, press the buzzer for Pressure Point, say your name and I will let you in. As you walk down the corridor, the male and female toilets are on the right, pass these, turn left then walk to the end of the corridor and my room, Studio 7, is at the end on the left.
