Acupuncture works by way of balancing and harmonizing the body to allow it to perform at its ultimate best. Keeping this in mind, it will always be beneficial to maintain the efficiency and harmony in your body. Stress itself plays a huge role in the body becoming in disarray. Acupuncture relieves stress, harmonizes the body, and the best part of this is there are no negative side effects. Good luck!

I do a lot of work with stress patients. Initially I see them weekly for 3-4 weeks and then we go monthly to keep things in check. These monthly treatments can go on for a year or more. If the patient is able to make lifestyle changes to reduce their stressors they might only come back quarterly. If lifestyle changes aren't possible in the near term, then they may consider coming monthly or every other month for an extended period of time.
I've never personally had anyone experience a negative side effect from prolonged acupuncture.

As for stress relief, acupuncture can be used for as long as the patient feels necessary and is always available to support a patient through periods of higher stress. I frequently give my patients meditation and other exercises to help alleviate stress at home.
If I could, I would get acupuncture at least once a month for the rest of my life. There are no side effects other than improved health and well being, it can be used to keep us healthy and happy, and it helps stop any budding problems from developing. So would I advise getting acupuncture long term? You bet! I have loads of patients who have been coming for years who come once a month or so just to stay balanced and healthy.
So if you're in a position to get acupuncture ongoing, go for it.
