About Jane

Jane Valencia - photoIn her healing practice, Jane helps those in a health or personal crisis to receive a renewed perspective of their situation, pain relief, accelerated healing, and an experience of blessing and grace.

Jane’s healing practice is grounded in the Reiki-Seichim lineage of energy healing. Offering Reiki since 2003, Jane received her Master-Teacher Training in 2006. In her practice she combines energy healing artistry with other modalities, calling upon sound healing, the magic of nature, healing music, and narrative medicine as the client’s needs suggest and inspire. Jane considers Reiki to be like a silent and spacious music that nourishes the client to relax into his or her deeply wise and healing nature, and into the loving-kindness woven trough all creation.

Jane loves the plant world. Her relationship with the herbs and trees has led her to work with the plants and their spirit medicine in her healing sessions. She studies sacred plant medicine with Cherokee medicine woman, Nunutsi Otterson, and with shamana flora, Darcey Blue French.

A musician who has offered improvisation for healing and performance for more than 25 years, Jane often heads out into the land and to the plants to listen for and gather what she calls “deer songs” — melodies that contain the essence of a particular moment in time and place, or the spirit of a plant or other being. She is co-director of the Vashon Island Threshold Choir, a group of women who offers song at the bedside and for those who are transitioning out of this life.

It is the mingling of Reiki, plant spirit healing, deer song, musical medicine weaving, and nature wise ways that calls, Jane feels, upon the Ways of the Deer.
