The fierce Latina posted an intimate photo of herself laying down with a handful of needles piercing into her skin. “I’m very grateful to all of you for your love and support. Yaaaay!!! You have gotten me to the 12 million!!! A needle for health and well-being representing each million of you,” captioned the Frida actress.

In Asia, this alternative medicine, which involves thin needles being inserted into the body, is commonly used to treat pain and relieve the body from tension. It also is known for benefiting overall wellness, including stress management. Of course, if you’re interesting in trying acupuncture, we suggest consulting with a medical professional before receiving any type of treatment.
