To minimize reflected power, matching the feed-point impedance of the antenna is the key (I'm assuming the antenna is already designed/tuned for the desired frequency or frequencies).

It is important to design RF transmission lines on a circuit board for proper characteristic impedance, and it is wise to provide pads for matching elements on the board in case some further feed-point impedance matching is required - this is fairly common.  Are you familiar with how to deal with these RF engineering exercises?  What is your application?
