About Us

Active Recovery are a mother and daughter team (Tanya and Kirsty Milne) specialising in Deep Tissue massage techniques. We have been operating a massage service in the East Midlands (Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire) for over 20 years.

In 2000 we opened our clinic in Loughborough to still continue to provide a sports massage service to various sporting organisations, but also to widen our service taking in the local and business community. Over the years we have continued to develop our services and even though we still work at National and International Sporting events and with a variety of sports organisations our primary focus now is aiding the private individual.

Proud to have worked with the GB Swimming team since 2002

Tanya Milne

I am the founder/primary Deep Tissue Massage Practitioner at Active Recovery. I have worked with many High Performance Sports, and throughout my career have provided Sports Massage and Injury cover for a wide variety of organisations at events and major National and International Sports meetings, but not exclusively.

I originally trained in Sports Massage (1994), and have been a full time Soft Tissue Therapist, Deep Tissue/ Sports Massage Practitioner for 23 years. I have continued to 

improve my skills, and use those skills to help my clients recover from pain, injury or just life in general.

Drawing from my wide experience I endeavour to give my clients (ages from 16 – 86yrs) the best treatment possible. It is all about what you the client need, and what is right for you.


Kirsty Milne

I originally trained as a Deep Tissue and Sports Massage Practitioner and have been a Practitioner for 18yrs.

I work at the highest levels in sport (including travelling to the Bejing Olympics with British Swimming), but also have many clients who I help on their road to recovery from injury, pain or just the effects of the ravages of time!! I have continued my training to include Indian Head Massage, supplemented with several other forms of relaxation therapy.

All the massage techniques I use are drawn upon to provide you with the massage that you need. And if you’re not sure what you want? Don’t worry, you’re in our experienced hands. I will quickly get a feel of what is ‘right’. Your massage is all about you and what is right for you.
