The sensitivity information processing have been developed by visualizing it through developing a method of describe, such as musical stores. We propose a knowledge media of describing tactile sense and visualize it, with refereed to the musical score. We analyze massages in a beauty salon by using tactile scores; we decompose the massage to 42 kinds of basic method components then analyze them by using the principal component analysis; found out that they are classified into 6 basic groups. We visualize the massages as transition sequences among the basic groups in the principle component space; and discover that two basic groups are intermediate one basic group to another.
