Kim Kardashian Tweets photo 'relaxing' with needles in her face (Photo)

Kim Kardashian is experimenting with a number of different relaxation techniques -- including acupuncture.

The 32-year-old television personality, who is currently expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West, shared a photo of her "relaxing" day on March 23.

"Oh just relaxing..." she posted on her official Instagram account, with a corresponding photo that shows the personality's face covered in acupuncture needles (See photo above).

The practice is a form of Chinese medicine that is based on the theory that energy, or "chi," flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians, according to WebMD. Acupuncturists believe that illness occurs when something blocks or unbalances your chi.

Kardashian isn't the only pregnant celebrity using the medicinal technique to relax, with superstar singer Fergie admitting on "Good Morning America" that the practice is calming, adding: "I've been doing acupuncture, which really helps with that [morning sickness], and Chinese herbs."

Kardashian has been engaging in a number of unique practices, having undergone a "vampire facial" on March 11. The reality television star debuted a photo on her official Instagram account that showcased her face covered in what appeared to be splotches of blood, captioning the photo: "Tonight on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami!!! #VampireFacial #kktm."

The procedure involves drawing blood from your arm, spinning out the platelets and then splattering the blood back onto your face with very small needles.

"I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful," Kardashian explained to E! Online.

Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian Odom Tweeted about her sister's blood facial, posting: "Kim is crazy! LOL KKTM."
