Why Medicinal hot compress to relieve headaches is placed on the belly button and not the forehead?

From a Chinese medicine view, headaches can be triggered when external or internal factors impede the flow of meridians and disturb organ functioning. The treatment for headaches often target on regulating the whole body.
The belly button is an important acupoint where has a close relationship with the internal organs and meridian flow. Many folk remedies are applied on it, as the medicinal effect can easily infiltrate through the skin and reach the meridians, activating qi movement and promoting internal balance.
