Complimentary treatment for Lymphoedema?

Just when I thought i had come through the last of my treatment! Today i have been diagnosed with Lymphoedema. In the great scheme of things its very minor I know. i've been given a compression sleeve and glove to wear, it's so painful at the moment, does anyone know of any complimentary treatments? I have the exercise sheet and due to start treatment next week, just wondering if there is anything else I can do? Many thanks
