That's always an ominous question to field from a client, but especially when it's a male client and you just flipped him over onto his back...
Me(hesitantly): Yes? *Oh, no, what's he gonna say now...?*
Him(jubilantly): You know, I have two extra bones in my body!
Me: *Oh, my God! Please, PLEASE don't get weird on me now...!* Okay?
Him: Yeah, right underneath each of my outside ankle bones, do you see?
Me: Wow, you're right! How *freaky, weird, bizarre*...um, interesting.
And it's true. He had a small, superfluous bone with a knuckle-like protrusion located just inferior to the lateral malleolus of each foot. (just underneath the outside ankle-bone of each foot, to be non-anatomical!)
You just never know how these massages are going to go.
See, the dirty little medic inside me would have said, "OMG! That is so weird! It's like a DEW CLAW in people! Can I touch it?!"
Well, I DID keep touching it! I couldn't help myself...
I just incorporated it into the foot massage, so he wouldn't notice that much (hopefully!)
omg - that extra bone thingie is freaky! Glad it turned out to be below the knees!
