I've asked Crown and Korman and they don't do it . They only do the chemical clean.

Performance BMW in Chapel Hill does walnut blasting, I believe. Don't know how far you're willing to drive for it.

So, apparently there is a new system/process going around now of cleaning the buildup on our valves that does not require walnut blasting that is just as effective and cheaper to do. One of the shops here was telling me about it and said they used to do walnut blasting but now use this and only charge $150-200 to do it! The shop I usually will take my car was getting acquainted with this system either last week or this week. Just a heads up for anyone looking for walnut blasting. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of what it was called. If anyone knows what I am talking about chime in, otherwise I will try to find out more shortly.

Holy crap! Didn't realize it was that pricey. I had mine done there 2 years ago and it was $400. Might have been part of a group buy, though.
