Protecting modesty at a health fair

I've been invited to do short massages at a health fair in my area and as its my first one I was wondering how to protect the client's modesty in such a public place. I've seen others therapists working at health fairs but never considered how the client got on to the couch without embarrassment.

Hi Treena

I've only noticed massage therapists doing neck, back and shoulders through clothes:))

I was thinking the same, do you know if clients were dressed or undressed on these couches? Perhaps a screen to change behind that folds away.
Good luck

I often do these taster sessions, I have a tri-fold screen which the client can remove their top behind, I wrap a towel around them, holding it together at the back while they lie down, I then open it bunching it at the sides to hide large breasts and unclip the bra. It works well and once you have done it once, it becomes a quick seamless movement while ensuring maximum modesty.
