Do acupuncturists only insert needles?

No.  As an integral part of what in English is called acupuncture, most practitioners are also trained to use a number of adjunctive therapies.  These typically include moxibustion, which is the burning of the herb Artemisia vulgaris sinensis over the affected area to warm it, cupping, electronic stimulation, magnetotherapy, and various types of massage, such as acupressure, Shiatsu, Jin Shin Jyutsu, and/or Tuina Chinese remedial massage.
