Let’s face it, Bali is a party island. And where there are parties, there are usually hangovers. And, boy, do they hurt. Luckily, there is no reason to despair if you find yourself in pain after a big night out because hangover treatment centers can bring much-needed relief in as little as 30 minutes. Forget a sterile, hospital-like, facility—these spots are designed with comfort in mind (after all, you don’t need to suffer more than you already are). So if you are feeling under the weather after a night of overindulging—or have a more legitimate reason for seeking help such as Bali belly, flu or jetlag—checking into one of the island’s IV treatment centers might just put you back on your feet.
Hangovers have three main causes: dehydration, inflammation and oxidative stress (imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants). IV therapy delivers electrolytes and vitamins straight into the bloodstream to provide fast relief. As an IV bypasses the stomach and intestines, the vitamins are absorbed by your body at a much faster rate than if they were taken orally; often patients start feeling better even before the session is over. While IV drips can be used for alleviating hangovers and other conditions, they also have numerous other benefits including boosting immunity, ridding the body of toxins and balancing hormones. With this in mind, here are three of Bali’s IV therapy lounges.
The Dose Bali
If the best way to avoid a hangover is staying drunk, the second best option might just be IV therapy at the Dose. The treatment center offers a variety of intravenous therapy packages depending on your hangover level and physical condition.
The Dose’s starter package is the Essentials. It contains 1000 milliliters of saline solution and electrolytes, as well as vitamin B and optional painkillers. For those needing a little extra kick, the Deluxe offers additional vitamin C and anti-nausea medication. Those wishing to go all out can opt for the Dose’s Ultimate Package, which is full of vitamins and antioxidants. Some of the center’s other health packages include Food Poisoning Recovery and Dengue Fever Recovery. Those concerned about their appearance can opt for the Anti-Aging Package, a treatment infused with vitamins, antioxidants and a skin firming youth booster.
The Dose is a mobile service that delivers IV therapy right to your doorstep. Those on a recovery or wellness regimes will be pleased to know that the Dose offers a 15 percent discount for five or more treatments or groups over five.

The Hangover Lounge uses pediatric IVs (think the smallest possible gauge needles) to minimize the pain after your wild night on the town. And since not all hangovers are created equal, the treatments at the center are tailored to your individual needs.
The center offers three basic hangover packages: Silver, Gold and Platinum. Those with a mild to moderate hangover should do just fine with the Silver Package, which contains a liter of hydration, electrolytes, antioxidants, vitamins B complex and C, as well as a stomach protector and liver cleanser. Booze enthusiasts opting for this package can also choose between a pain killer and an anti-nausea medicine. The Gold Package throws in 30 minutes of oxygen therapy. Formulated for the mother of all hangovers, the Platinum option delivers 1,500 milliliters of hydration plus additional vitamins and 45 minutes of oxygen therapy.
The clinic also offers health and well-being packages. Liquid Slim has been formulated to boost the metabolism and cleanse the liver. It also contains L-Carnitine to help turn fatty acids into energy. The Myers Cocktail is a basic vitamin infusion for those who need a little extra energy. The center’s most popular vitamin booster package, Liquid Life hydrates, boosts the immune system, detoxifies the liver, and improves hair and skin health. Last but definitely not least, Liquid Youth promotes skin regeneration, weight loss and overall vitality
