Everything we do at the Teggatz Clinic is centered around you, the patient – because you hold the keys to so many aspects shaping your health. And without your active participation in your journey to health, none of our wisdom will create longterm health.
Our Core Values Of Care
The Philosophy That Drives Us
The philosophy that motivates Dr. Teggatz at The Teggatz Clinic is pretty simple:
“Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely treat your patient. Whatever that ‘whatever’ is.”
Dr. Teggatz founded The Teggatz Clinic on the belief of participatory care where the patient is an instrumental partner in returning their body back to health (or keeping it healthy). And that it’s not about pre-determined ideas about a diagnosis without a full understanding of a patient’s situation.
That’s why the Dr. Teggatz at the Teggatz Clinic will leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting to the root cause of your health problems. We deliver a whole-person, targeted approach which works not only on the physical, but also the mind-body aspect of health.
We will integrate findings from the most recent research along with literally decades of knowledge that Dr. Teggatz has accumulated. As it is stated in our Core Values of Care, you will always be first in line for innovative, integrative treatment methods that combine the best of Western and Eastern medicine.

Over the last 14 years, Linnea has worked in Med-Surg, Pediatric Intensive Care, Observation/Outpatient, Cardiology, Case Management, Care Coordination, Nursing Management, and as a school nurse.

About Abby Thornburg, LMT
Abby Thornburg has been practicing Massage Therapy since 2018. She completed her training at Denver Integrative Massage School (DIMS) in Denver, CO and has continued her education through various programs. She worked in a spa setting for the last three years and just recently joined The Teggatz Clinic in August 2023.
Abby is new to the functional medicine world but she has witnessed firsthand how treating the body as a whole can greatly improve the body and the mind. She first became interested in massage therapy during childhood when her mother quit her nursing career to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. She never forgot the positive change that massage brought to her mother’s life.
Abby is very interested in the beautiful, and often times complicated, connection between the body and the mind. She feels that receiving massage can help bring a person back to themselves and loves to hold space for that kind of healing to occur. She likes to blend Swedish massage, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and Thai yoga techniques in her sessions in hopes of providing a unique experience for each of her clients. Each session is tailor made to accommodate her client’s individual needs. She is also a Certified Reiki Practitioner and hopes to add CranioSacral Therapy to her modalities in the near future.
Outside of massage, Abby enjoys spending time with her husband and their son, baking, reading, and traveling back to the mountains of Colorado as often as she can.
“My symptoms are now manageable!”
"The Teggatz Clinic has been a breath of fresh air for me. I’m a hairstylist and have been struggling with numbness in my hands and arms due to 21 years in the industry. I started acupuncture treatments as an alternative to surgery. After three weekly acupuncture treatments my symptoms have been manageable. So no surgery!!! Her staff is warm and professional and the location is great. I still maintain with acupuncture treatments once a month which are now a relaxing and prevention at the same time."
“I am thankful.”
"When I was 17 years old I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and Irritable Bowel Disease. After seeing Dr. Teggattz I know that there are real practitioners out there, who really care and operate from a heart-centered place. Her compassion and desire to be a real healer are obvious. I am thankful to know that there are people like Dr. Teggatz in the world, and more thankful when people like me connect with people like her!"
“She got to know me and took time to initiate a treatment plan“
"After close to a decade of “being alive” but not “living.” Thanks to Dr. Teggatz and God’s Blessings, I am back! Multiple Dr.’s plus two ENT specialists and thousands of out-of-pocket dollars could not do what Dr. Teggatz did for me – care that I got better! During a lengthy interview, she got to KNOW ME and took time to initiate a treatment plan and follow-up that has given me back the enthusiasm to take back my health, not just trudge through my circumstance. Thanks, Dr. Teggatz – I look forward to each day feeling great!"
