The Cayle™ Method
The Cayle™ Method of Labor and Delivery focuses on a blend of traditional and
complimentary modalities. The latest guidelines set forth by ACOG are blended with
the following adjunctive therapies:
CranioSacral Therapy: A gentle manual therapy that
focuses on the optimization of the craniosacral system. This proven therapy, borne out
of Osteopathic techniques, assists with morning sickness, orthopedic issues including
hip pain and sciatica, fatigue, and overall stress reduction/relaxation. Traditional
CST techniques have also been found to facilitate a smooth labor and delivery. The Cayle™
Method has also developed new manual therapy techniques to further assist the
delivery process. Data from these deliveries to date demonstrate a statistically
significant difference among a variety of parameters; some of which include: reduced
need/use for Pitocin, reduced frequency of episiotomies and/or tears, and overall
shortened Active Phase of Labor.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent: This very small
amperage (in millionths of an amp) uses specific frequencies to effect positive change
in tissues. It is clinically observed to reduce hemorrhage and has been shown very
effective to reduce inflammation in lab studies. It is utilized prior to conception
to eliminate pain and tissue restrictions of scarring from previous trauma or surgeries.
Current research with the developer shows promising possibilities for even more
applications to women's health.
Lymphatic Drainage: This gentle manual therapy
is utilized to reduce swelling, leg cramps, and facilitate relaxation. The lymphatic
system has direct innervations to the Parasympathic Nervous System, resulting in
Nutrition/Wellness: Supplying the body with the
nutritional tools it needs to perform not only normally, but optimally, is essential
to overall well-being. Complementing traditional allopathic care, we offer
naturopathic/homeopathic approaches to patient care as well. Individualized programs
for our patients based on thorough assessment and customized therapy plans, support
the body's innate healing ability with therapies that include Homeopathy, Herbal
Medicine, Chinese Medicine, and Holistic Nutrition.
The specific techniques implemented within the Cayle™ Method do NOT preclude
the use of standard techniques as set forth by ACOG.
The data reflects that recovery from a Cayle™ Method delivery is quicker and easier.
The patient satisfaction has been so overwhelmingly positive that the OB unit in which
it was first developed was cited as receiving the highest level of patient satisfaction
in Obstetrical Care in the entire Department of Defense, receiving the 2004 Dept. of
Defense MTF Customer Satisfaction Award. On receiving the award, CAPT S. DeGroot,
Commanding Officer said, “…that CranioSacral Therapy played a significant part in the
Naval Hospital receiving this award.”
