Rotating about the y- or z-axis of the Bloch sphere

In order to rotate about an axis of the Bloch sphere we ususally use pulses e.g. in trapped ion quantum computing or superconducting qubits. Let's say we have rotation around the x-axis. What do I have to change in order to be able to rotate around the y-axis or the z-axis? I assume it has something to do with the phase but I could not find a good reference for how this works.
