Virtua, the biggest health system in South Jersey, is opening its second spa this month, at its new health and wellness center in Moorestown. Called "vir tú" and offering services such as facials, massages, and even audio therapy, the spas are at the extreme end of Virtua's effort to focus more on keeping the population it serves healthy and less on taking care of people after they get sick. "Part of disease management is stress management as well. It's part of experimentation," Richard P. Miller, president and chief executive of Virtua, said of the for-profit spas.

Schools closed for the day. Businesses shuttered. No sales in stores in major malls. No justice in the courts. No tourists at the Liberty Bell. No trains, no buses, and no chance for Monday's late-afternoon seminar on "Airbrush Bridal Makeup. " "She begins with an eyebrow shaping service using only tweezers, scissors, eye shadow and blush," read the description of the seminar, set for 4:30 p.m. Monday at the Convention Center. Organizers of the Aesthetics Expo: International Congress of Esthetics and Spa decided Sunday to cancel events Monday, the final day of its three-day convention, disappointing 3,000 attendees and stranding some exhibitors.

MILWAUKEE - A Wisconsin man terrorized his wife for years, threatening to throw acid on her face, dousing her car with tomato juice, and slashing her vehicle's, tires before finally going to the spa where she worked, opening fire, and killing her and two others. The shooting spree stunned the middle- to upper-class Milwaukee suburb where it occurred Sunday, but court records show the conflict between Radcliffe Haughton and his wife had been escalating for years. The 45-year-old former car salesman ultimately shot seven women at the Brookfield spa before turning the gun on himself, taking his own life.

AWISCONSIN man who had been accused of domestic violence and slashing his wife's tires took a gun into the spa where she worked Sunday and shot seven women, three fatally, before killing himself, police said. The shootings set off a six-hour search for the gunman that locked down a nearby mall, a country club adjacent to the spa and the hospital where the survivors were taken. The search froze activity in a commercial area in Brookfield, a middle-to-upper class community west of Milwaukee, for much of the day. Ultimately, he was found dead in the spa. Authorities said it would take time to sort out exactly what happened, and emphasized they were still interviewing witnesses and rescuers.

BROOKFIELD, Wis. - A man police suspected of killing three and wounding four by opening fire at a tranquil day spa was found dead Sunday afternoon following a six-hour manhunt that locked down a shopping center, country club and hospital in suburban Milwaukee. Authorities said they believed the shooting was related to a domestic dispute. The man they identified as the suspect, Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, 45, of Brown Deer, had a restraining order against him. Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said Haughton died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was found in the spa. Authorities initially believed Haughton had fled and spent much of Sunday looking for him. The shooting happened about 11 a.m. at the Azana Day Spa, a two-story, 9,000-square-foot building across from a major shopping mall in Brookfield, a middle-to-upper class community west of Milwaukee.

Pennsylvania Health Department workers visited Monarch Med Spa in King of Prussia on Monday, the company said, but have not issued findings from the visit. Monarch's locations there and in Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and Greenville, Del., are being investigated after Maryland last week closed its other facility, in Timonium, north of Baltimore. The closure followed invasive group A streptococcus (GAS) infections in three women, one of them fatal, who underwent liposuction there. A Delaware Health Division spokeswoman said Monday that it had confirmed invasive GAS in one resident, no longer hospitalized, who had "a surgical" procedure at a Monarch location in Pennsylvania.

Investigations into the cause of bacterial infections that killed one woman and hospitalized two others after liposuction procedures in Maryland have spilled into Pennsylvania and Delaware, with authorities Friday advising customers of Monarch Med Spas that they might have been exposed. Maryland health officials shut down the cosmetic-surgery center in Timonium, north of Baltimore, on Wednesday after an inspection raised concerns about infection-control procedures. Monarch's other four centers are in Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Harrisburg, and Greenville, Del. The Pennsylvania and Delaware health departments urged people who underwent procedures and have fever, infection, or prolonged redness of the wound site to contact their health providers.
