Origin-point-injury creates the signs & symptoms of illness. When we remove the OP-injury, we remove the signs & symptoms of illness.

Example 1: The Origin Points of the leg – from the thigh, down to the knee, the leg and the ankle – are located at the gluteal or buttock. A patient with knee pain & walking difficulty will be pain-free at the knee & walk properly if we antui (‘press & push’ massage technique in OPM) the origin points at the gluteal region.

Example 2: A patient with kidney stones may suffer severe lower back pain on some days but not on others. When we remove the origin-point-injury with antui, the pain is gone. But kidney stones are still there. It proves that the pain is caused not by kidney stones but by the OP-injury corresponding to the lower back.
