In Ayurveda, Shiva-Shakti is duality expressed and integrated in one whole, with masculine and feminine energy both at play. Shiva is masculine and Shakti is feminine. When these polarities merge together, balance is achieved. My approach is to bring these energies into balance and integrate the duality into one whole self with Meditation, Pranayama, Acupuncture, CranioSacral, Reiki, Marma Therapies.
Shiva-Shakti parallels Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) concepts of Yin-Yang.
Both system of Medicine are founded upon one basic concept of balancing of the the dual, interdependent energies and the idea that there is always yin within yang and there is always yang within yin. They can only be compared in relation to each other.
