Adapting Bodies in a Digital Age: The Shift from Homo Sapiens to Techno Sapiens

evolution from homo sapiens to techno sapiens

Dear Readers,

In the heart of Marylebone, at JANMI, we are not just about addressing current health issues but also understanding their roots in our evolutionary journey. I invite you to explore a significant shift in our lineage: from Homo Sapiens to Techno Sapiens.

The Shift to Techno Sapiens

This shift represents our adaptation to an increasingly technology-driven world. While Homo Sapiens evolved over millions of years, adapting to various environments, Techno Sapiens have emerged in just a few decades, adapting to the digital world.

When and How Did This Shift Happen?

The transformation began with the advent of modern technology, particularly in the last century. The digital revolution has accelerated this change, fundamentally altering how we interact with our environment and with each other.

Why the Shift?

The shift is a response to our reliance on technology for communication, work, entertainment, and even health management. It represents a natural progression in our evolutionary story, where technology becomes an extension of our physical and cognitive selves.

Risks Factors for Our Bodies

Postural Changes: Increased device usage leads to conditions like 'tech neck' and 'mouse shoulder'.

Reduced Physical Activity: Sedentary lifestyles contribute to musculoskeletal issues and cardiovascular problems.

Eye Strain and Sleep Disruption: Prolonged screen time affects eye health and circadian rhythms.

JANMI's Approach to Mitigating Risks

At JANMI, we offer therapies like deep tissue massage, sports massage, and personalized exercises to counteract these modern-day ailments. We also advocate for a balanced approach to technology, encouraging regular breaks and posture corrections.


As Techno Sapiens, it’s crucial to be aware of how our bodies are adapting to this new era. Understanding the risks and taking proactive steps can help us navigate this transition healthily and sustainably.

Warm regards,

Paulius Jurasius

Founder, JANMI
