Background: The purpose of this study was to describe how patients with persistent pain experience physiotherapist-guided Free Movement Dance (FMD) as a physiotherapy intervention. Methods: Individual interviews were conducted with 20 patients who had participated in FMD for 1-6 semesters with different guiding physiotherapists. The interviews were transcribed and analysed using qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach as described by Graneheim and Lundman. Results: The analysis resulted in one overarching theme-Physiotherapist-guided Free Movement Dance is empowering in everyday living-and five subthemes: Breaking unhealthy patterns generates physical confidence and strength, Developing greater understanding of the body signals, Accepting pain is important but challenging, Taking responsibility for myself and my well-being and Feeling calmer and happier in life. Conclusions: FMD was experienced as a physiotherapy intervention that enabled the patients to develop an awareness of their own movement, and also leading to the feeling of being empowered in everyday living. FMD can be seen to be in concordance with the core values of physiotherapy that individuals have the capacity to change as a result of their responses to physical, psychological, social and environmental factors.
