How much pressure to use on these Kidney acupressure points

The Kidney is a Yin Organ, so the Kidney meridian is also Yin in nature. When working with Yin acupressure points, use the following guidelines:

1. Make light contact with the point
2. Slowly increase the pressure while maintaining a soft, quiet energetic field within yourself.
3. Sink your attention and Qi into the point
4. Pay attention to the way your client responds. Adjust based on the response. If there is painย lighten up. If there is no sensation, increase pressure.
5. Explore, wonder, allow your intuition and observation of your client to guide you.
