The tickishness is often due to the tension itself. Deep tissue work may help. Try working on the legs first to ease any tension there.

I have had such clients the only way to get them to relax annually is a firm touch massage that works.
In my time i have had clients with very ticklish feet...i think the best way for a therapist to control this is do the pressure points of the feet and also massage quiet deep.
If you dont massage deep then the clients will become far more sensitive.I wouldnt change the routine at all..its all about the pressure.
If your client cant control him or her self then i would recommend having a different treatment.
