In the Root Treatment, when I tonify Yin Meridian, I make a choice between tonifying Yang Ki (Eki/Defensive Qi) and tonifying Yin Ki (Eiki/Nutritive Qi). In most cases, Yang Ki is tonified but sometimes Yin Ki has to be tonified. How should I differentiate? When I check each meridian by light strokes or pouring Yang Ki, if Yin Ki should be tonified, the pulse pounds in all meridians, but at the time of the most proper meridian, the pulse pounds less. So for example, if the less pounding meridian is Liver, the pulse doesn't pound and gets better when a little heavy "light stroke" or Yin Ki is applied to Liver Meridian. I distinguish how to use Yang Ki and Yin Ki like this. This may change, though.
