you either have another issue or you need more power steering fluid. The only bleed procedure for power steering is top it off, run it, let it sit, come back, and repeat. Sounds like a bad pump to me or plugged line which is rare.
Turning the steering wheel to the full extent of left and right with adequate fluid in the pump is the only procedure that I know.
Yes I forgot to add while running turn wheel from lock to lock. Though even with air still in system you should have some power assist. Still think you have another issue.
