About Us

Our Story

We first heard about float therapy in early 2018. Did some research and decided to try floating whilst on a trip down south. We were hooked immediately and knew we had to bring floating to the Darwin community!

On our own personal journey to lead a healthier lifestyle, starting by reducing consumption of foods with chemicals and preservatives, we soon discovered that our past choices had not necessarily been the best for our health and wellbeing.

We continue to make better choices and search for the "truth" instead of relying on marketing and media hype, which often means going against "the norm".

Karen took a leap of faith, leaving her 18 year career in the NT Public Service to follow her passion to help people live a better quality life and Saltwater Float Spa was born in 2019!

Our family moved to Darwin from Melbourne in 1993 as the result of a defence force posting. We travelled north with our 7 year old twins (boy and girl) and our cat Stanley and the rest as they say, is history. We now have a grandson, born and growing up in Darwin and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

In 2015 I became a Miessence representative and New Horizons NT was born out of a mission to share information with people on health and well being through a range of Australian Certified Organic products. It wasn’t long before I realised I had found my passion! Through my business, I have gained so much knowledge about harmful toxins that affect not only us but also our environment. It also sparked a deeper interest into gut health, nutrition and intermittent fasting, understanding the connection with so many of the diseases we see today. Saltwater Float Spa has evolved from these beginnings and a strong desire to help people. Like most things in my life, opportunities appear when the timing is right and the universe is aligned!

After a career spanning 18 years in the NT public service, at the age of 53, I decided to take a leap of faith and follow a path that was better aligned with my values and fulfill my passion to help people and our environment. I certainly couldn’t achieve any of this on my own. Phil worked tirelessly over 10 months to make it happen. There’s been plenty of challenges along the way, a lot of sweat and a few tears, but by staying focused on the end result, we did it!

Now my aim is spread the word about the benefits of floating and I'm sure you'll all help me do this. ❤️Karen
